Trouble With '07 Uly

I've had a few annoying issues with my Uly. Rear wheel bearing, drive belt chaffing the guard and mostly the surging/backfire and at times even dying. They replaced a few parts and did a tps adjustment and seemed to make it better. At times, on idling warmup, it has died. Starts right back up, but that never happened before. Today it was warm, about 96deg F, and pulling into my driveway after my 25 mile commute, it died. It wouldn't restart and I didn't hear the fuel pump. After several tried, it finally started. Has the Uly had any fuel pump issues? If it happens again tomorrow (forecast near 100 deg) I'll have to bring it in again. Still love the bike though.

Have the dealer check the fuel pump.

I had problems with mine and it was replaced at 1,000 miles.

So far the Ulysses has been pretty trouble free until about 5 months ago I noticed this....



A bit of research has reveiled a few inmates had this issue. Skifastbadly and Hughlysses to name two. I've posted it in Badweb as well, so finally getting down to removing the engine.

I can't see or hear what is there, but I don't have to.

My 2007 is the same.

Want another one to do after you practice on yours ?

That engine knock wasn't there before I racked up 30K on it. Always used Harley Synthetic, hmm, maybe that's the problem. Hughlysses had the same noise although his was a bit louder. His ended up being the crank pin with alot of play from the front rod. Mine sounds like it's from the front as well. Good luck on yours, recommended fix is an '08 crank with the larger pin, 1 1/2" I think it was. '07s have the 1 1/4".

Ok, really wasn't too bad, and now it's out.



Good thing I have an engine hoist!





Tomorrow, I'll start tearing down the engine. Hopefully it's what I think it is.

Good catch, some of them threw the front rod right out.

Sure glad it didn't get to that point Larry. Some more work done today.





Pulled the front head off first and started to think I made a big mistake as I found the exhaust manifold a bit loose, nah, didn't sound like an exhaust leak.

Front rod and piston felt ok, so I pulled the rear head and found the rear rod with at least 1/16" of play with my calibrated fingers. Didn't know whether to be happy or not, but at least I found something not right.

Every one I've seen seems to be an '07 with 30,000+ miles (like mine), but I'm sure someone's had an '06 with a similar problem.
