Neighbor down the road took off on his Fatboy, half hour later he was pushing it back home. I asked if he needed some help, he said "no, I'll make it". Asked him what happened, he said the throttle cable wasn't adjusted properly, it flooded, and he ran the battery down. Asked if he wanted a jump, he said NO, YOU CAN'T DO THAT OR YOU'LL BURN UP ALL THE ELECTRONICS. He yelled that part.

I told him good luck. He's a strange duck anyway. At least I offered.

 

Can you NOT jump a Fatboy? Never heard of such a thing. :Oo:

Don't know... I think you can, but I've not seen anyone do it.

 

Sounds like the HD guy was just embarrassed, and wanted you out of the way.

You could have put the icing on the cake if you told him you would give him a jump from your Indian.

 

That's what I was gonna do. :grin:

we went on a ride a few weeks ago and met at the harley shop i took the valkyrie that day ,and besides a rocket 3 there were 6 harleys one guy rolled his out of the service department (his wife works there )and they had it a month for recalls and secret harley shit that breaks ,it wouldnt start , no one offered to help ,so the look at everyone in the showrooms face when a honda rider parked ,got off and pushed the guy for a roll start and no one else made a move to help ,even the service guys , a precious damn moment .

I jumped my chief before when my ignition switch took a dump and drained my battery... Jumped it off a car that was not running...

No problem... Just be sure disconnect from the power source asap once everything once running...
