    I hope it goes well but since motorcycles don't fix themselves, you won't be able to trust it until you find a issue

    The factory harness does have some plugs that are not used.

    Spent yesterday bent over the wiring cluster under the flyscreen. What a mess with wires going nowhere. Plugs dangling, more plugs coupled and zip tied. No wiggle results from the ignition. Cleaned every ground I could find and some were corroded but now cleaned and coated with electrolytic spooge. Took it out briefly last night for an 8 mile loop with no problems. Going to try for longer if the monsoons let up.

    Thanks Cooter, you have given me a lot already. I don't give up easily, but my body limits how much time I can spend looking. We'll get it!

    Guys, I think we are close!

    And the story continues. Took it out today for a ride up to Lake Lure NC (where part of Dirty Dancing was filmed) which has beautiful twisties. On the trip up of about 40 miles, it ran great with only one cough and one fart (the bike, not me). When it did these, CEL came on and I was able to just bump start again and not miss a beat.

    After lunch and on the return back, the CEL was on for the first 2 miles and then coughed again and CEL went out for good. No issues until I got to my own driveway. Now it just stopped running, the CEL came on and it refused to start at all just as it has before. Pushed it into the garage for further inspection.

    Terrific ride while it lasted. Glad it didn’t strand me this time and certainly enjoyed it while it was running.

    forest: if you are reasonably confident you cleaned up that mess behind your flyscreen and have eliminated the wiring jungle as source of problems then i would do the below as it appears your ECM has stored multiple trouble codes and bike also suffering from intermittent electrical gremlin:
    1-see link below. simple way to read stored trouble codes. does NOT clear the codes but identifies problems. it must be done.
    2-on your ulysses the fusebox is under the seat. remove cover....look at underside of lid for schematic...find the relays shown on the lid. at the very least replace the IGNITION relay. it interchanges at any quality auto parts store with ford and chrysler a/c relays and is cheap. your bundled wire mess in the front may have very well affected that relay. replace it to eliminate it as source of problem.

    I have moved all of the relays, but not replaced yet. Lost nothing else related to them so if appears to me that it is not them. Cheap fix though so will try. It is cold now, but just cranks and will not even attempt to start, so I am back to the CEL On and no start part of the Manual. My back is killing me!
    The codes thing is something I have read over and over but it seems I have to have a PC and ECMSpy which leaves me out on both accounts. I am and have been a Mac guy since 1984 and don't have a Windows install disc to set up on a virtual or BootCamp partition since until now, I never needed one.

    Thanks for your continued checking.

    And don't forget to say "Beetlejuice...Beetlejuice...Beetlejuice..." before you ride!

    You don't need ECMSpy to check codes. Click the link.
    I'm actually happy that it does't start, now we can find the problem!

    Here is what I found, but frankly it makes little sense to me. I think it is 21 and 16 , then over and over.

    Despite the code, the battery is good at 13.7 volts with no load. However, the Exhaust Actuator does not move more that a fraction. You can hear the effort to turn, but then nothing. Took it apart and the return spring was off so placed it back in the slot. It then cycled just fine a few times so reconnnected the cable and it stopped again. Nothing! Anyone have a spare Buell S0138.2AA as i cannot find one on the internet? I can however find the .1AA instead which I guess was the prior version.

    The battery (16) can set a code when it is bad, by losing voltage during a big draw (cranking). Testing the voltage is one thing. A load test will tell you whether the battery is good or not.

    You can disconnect the solenoid cable, extend it and:

    The code should go away. Or I'm sure you can find someone on here with a spare exhaust actuator code (21), they get removed when you put on an aftermarket muffler so there's lots around, check the classifieds on here and BadWeb.
