Why does my bike cut out when hot?
The dreaded stalling issue when the engine is warm is the most common idle problem and it is mostly related to the very lean air/fuel ratio on the modern fuel injected motorcycle engine.
What to do when your Harley Davidson is running hot?
Cool oil does help but head temps and oil temps are two different things altogether. The heads will get hot so quickly, the oil does not even have a chance to cool them down since the oil flow at idle just is not all that much. Maybe a set of pipes or high volume oil pump would help me.

What makes a Harley Davidson overheat in traffic?
Harley is an air cooled and oil cooled engine. Slow moving your bike and stand-stills will ruin a good engine. The traveling at idle speeds in stop-n-go traffic is not the way the harley is designed and nothing short of a 20 mile an hour breeze would improve that situation much. HEAT is the killer of the air-cooled engine.
Why does my Harley Davidson bike run hot?
Bike is running hot. Discussion in ‘ Sportster Models ‘ started by RideTheLightning, Jul 28, 2010 . Hey guys I am trying to figure out what is up with my bike. It seems to run hotter than it should. I’ll be sitting at a stop light and it becomes extremely uncomfortable on the exhaust side of the bike because it’s hot.
Where does the heat go in a Harley Davidson engine?
The engine transfers heat to the oil, which then goes through the oil cooler. The cooled oil now goes back into the engine to cool it, and the cycle repeats. Oil-cooling allowed Harley-Davidson to continue using the air-cooled Big Twin engine on its bikes.
What causes a Harley Davidson engine to overheat?
If the bike’s idling for an extended period of time without moving or moving at low speeds, it is more likely the bike can overheat. Some modern v-twin bikes are engineered to use air and cooling to keep engine temperature down. This dual-system is what you’ll find on modern Harleys and some Indian Motorcycles.
