Part one.

Buddy has a 2001 (or a 2002 I forget) Electra Glide Standard, carb'd. He rides along for a while, then the motor cuts off. No warning, no sputter, no stumble, just OFF. He sits at the side of the road for 5 or 10 minutes, and the scooter starts right up and rides and runs fine until the next time. And, the next time is intermittent. There is no pattern. Can happen twice in one day or go 3 days with nothing happening.

My vote is coil. Suggestions welcome!! :wavey:

Part Two.

Will a coil from a 2003 CARB'd EGC retro to his 2001 (or '02)? I have a coil from my '03, trying to save him some $$$ {salute(

Sounds like the main circuit breaker. They was a recall on this a couple years ago. About the right amount of time sitting for breaker to cool & reset itself. I believe it was replaced with a 50 amp. I would check to see if it is.

I have a 2001 RK that had the same problem. Ended up being a crankshaft positioning switch (next to the oil filter). Replaced it and no more problems.
