I had a similar problem on my last bike, 07 Electraglide. Started it to move it up the driveway, then it wouldn't start 5 min later. Had to be put on a truck and taken to the dealer. The problem was paint overspray at the factory on one of the starter solenoid or starter terminals. With miles and vibration the ring terminal of the wire rotated slightly until it mostly tested on a painted portion and it acted as an insulator.

Just had the same think happen to a friends RK, replaced the bank angle sensor and is started.

You only need to be 10% smarter than the thing your working on!

If you have a power commander on the bike remove it and give it a try. Doc
