Hi all-

This is my first post.

I bought an 06 Roadliner this past April and I have been loving it! I have a little over 3,000 miles now.

My issue is that 4 days ago I fired her up to run some errands and it started, but then stalled and the instrument cluster went blank. Needless to say, I was not happy. So I took my cage (aka car) on the errands instead and when I returned home took a look at the bike. I tried the keys and the cluster was still blank, :fight2:, then I checked the fuses and they were all OK, but I figured maybe I should try the bike again. Well apparently removing the fuses worked and the bike was running fine. However, yesterday the same issue happened, I put the keys in and the gauges all did there thing with cycling through their ranges and then they went dead. This time I was at work though… so I tried pulling the fuses again and putting them back in. That fixed the issue again and I was able to drive home. I now have the bike being checked out by the ‘professionals’ and I am waiting to hear their diagnosis.

Do you folks have any thoughts?

At the very least this is something for you guys to be aware of as well. Has anyone else suffered something similar?

Thanks!

Here's a belated answer...
I had the same problem. When at the dealer for service they said my battery was going bad cause they had to put a charger on it to get it started. I told them I had never had a problem starting it before. On the way home a few days later the bike started stuttering and finally stalled. I got it started and went about a half mile when it finally quit altogether. I had no power to the bike from the battery.
Dealer checked it out, found a bad connection somewhere, fixed it, and I have not had any trouble since.

What was the outcome from the dealer. My roadstar just started this same thing yesterday...
Welcome to the forum.

Congratulations on passing your rookie test by replying to a SIX year old thread. <j/k>

Probably would be best to start your own thread.....if the information already included above doesn't help you any.
I doubt that those people are even around amymore.
