Ok went out to start my 08 883 low and turned on the switch, turned on the kill switch, pressed the starter and it turned over and fired once, tried again several times and it would not start. Checked for a spark at the plugs and had plenty of spark, fuel pump runs. So drove truck to work came home and tried again it would not start. so I pulled the master fuse and let set for a while, tried it again and still won't start. Pulled the plugs and was going to check for spark at plugs. Whe I tried to get a spark thru plugs there was none (before you ask it the plugs were grounded to the engine). Removed the fuel tank and coil pack ohm'd out the coil pack on opens in coils, reassembled the coil and put fuel tank back on. Just for grins decided to check for a spark with the plugs reinstalled, put tseter in coil wire and both wires produced a strong spark, reinstalled spark plug wires and tried to start and wouldn't you know it it started. Drove it around no problems, drove it to work this morning and no problems.
Any suggsetions or anybody else had problem like this?

Ok here it is Monday morning 5 days after it would not start the first time rode it Friday and Saturday but this morning it will not start again.
It will try and start but after a couple of times it dosen't try any more. I have good spark to both plugs. Pulled the fuel line from the tank and reconnected, it will try and start but then after a couple of rev it will not try and start at all. Anybody have simular problems?

It is fuel injected so I certian it has a crank position sensor, but the ignition is firing the spark plugs so I am not sure that is it. My past experence with positon sensors on cars it that if it fails there would be no ignition spark.
