Electrical Problem ’01 FXDXT

Question I own a 2001 FXDXT and developed an electrical problem on Harley. Riding down the road the electrical system seems to shut itself off. I turn the key off or shut the kill switch off and then back on and the bike fires up and runs fine. Can you offer any suggestions as to go about tracking down the cause? Thanks, Bruce

Answer Hi Bruce, I would start by replacing the main circuit breaker, I also need more information, is it fuel injected , does the headlight also go out, how many miles on the m/c , any modifications to the wiring or handlebar harness, does power come right back as soon as you turn the key off and then back on? Please get back to me and I would be happy to help you out.  Wrench Safe, FMH
