Would like to know if anyone has had problems with there cam position sensor? I have a 1999 Classic and it had 24,640 miles on it.I pulled in to get gas and it would not start back up. Had it towed to the nearest dealer and after 5 hrs they replaced the sensor. Now at low speed around 1400rpm it will miss and I'm baffled.

You mean crank position sensor? Im thinking have the dealer make it right (at no extra charge of course). After 5 hours they could of done better.

Here's something to consider. Starting with 01 models, the cam sensor is either not present or just no longer used. Guess Harley decided wasn't necessary. I was told by a couple dealer techs (good ones) that you can put an ECM from an 01 bike on a 99 or 00 if you suspect cam sensor problems. Since this ECM doesn't use the cam sensor, it's a good way to check this problem. The newer ECM can also be left on the 99 or 00 bike permanently.

If any of the sensors are going south, It should give out codes should it not?
I'd suspect dirty gas..................

Delphi EFI do not use a Cam Sensor and there is not one on the bike. So if you got Delphi then you won't see one. Earlier EFI used a cam sensor to detect the position of the cycle.

Missed this in the paste - see seventh line:

With the Delphi EMS, the key features and functions of the 2001 Softail
platform include:

* Hybrid ECM technology for compact and rugged applications.
* Cylinder-independent sequential port fuel injection.
* Cylinder-independent spark timing control.
* Synchronous manifold pressure sensing of engine load.
* Predictive load estimation for accurate transient control.
* Control of idle air for turnkey starting and idle speed control.
* Cylinder identification without the use of a camshaft sensor.
* Barometric pressure compensation for operation at any altitude.
* Knock control using "ion-sense" technology.
* Engine speed-governing control.
* Engine management systems diagnostics.
* Communication interface to instrument cluster, security module and
service tools.

My Cam sensor went south (intermittant problem with acceleration) - and no codes were logged (carb)

Did I miss something - Did he say his bike was FI?

I'm not much good to anyone on FI, and very little good on anything else <grin> but if they supposedly fixed it - it should be fixed - take it back. I assume fuel filter and pressure are ok
