Hot start problem
Hello to all, I'm hoping to get some help or advice on a problem I'm having on my 2001 FLTR. After I bought it I had the dealer run the VIN number on it and found out the engine had been upgraded with Screamin' Eagle cams and high compression pistons. It also has a SE ignition module. At least that's what I think it is.
The bike starts right up when cold and runs great. The problem I'm having is that when I try to start it when it's hot (like when I stop for gas.) it will kick back and grind against the starter. I just bought a new battery with 400 cca and that helped at first but the last time I rode it, it happened again.
Someone on another forum suggested I check the timing. How do you set the timing?, or can I even do that? Could I take it to a dealer and have them set it? Or do yall think that may even be the problem? Maybe I need a high torque starter? Anybody have experience with this? Any help or advice would be much appreciated...Thanks.
