If your ignition module is located in the same place as mine (right side of engine under the derby cover) remove the cover and you should see the leds on the module flash indicating the ingition is firing. To test it, heat it up with a hair dryer and if the ignition cuts out, its probably bad.

The Harley ignition modules are hard to come by so I replaced mine with their Screaiming Eagle version that was in stock and less money.

Hope this helps,
Hey Tommy. I sure hope you are wrong also. That would also mean a trip to Texas before continuing on. But thanks for your help.
Have a dream, live it. Set a goal, achieve it.
