Are there any known issues with the stock ignition module that comes standard with the 2013 models?  I was riding last week when it just up and quit on me. After jiggling the wires to the ignition module, she fired right back up.  Thanks.

Update:  My bike quit altogether yesterday and no amount of tinkering would get it to work.  I think it is time for a professional to come in and look into it.

Sounds like the occasional bad wire connector issue.
Take the time to trace the ignition circuit, checking for loose or corroded connectors, plugs and wires.

If anyone out there is still not locked up in a Fema camp for anti-American  sentiments with regards to their love for soviet motorcycles....I would point them in the direction of Lauren Moret....and the "Mystery" of why planes are disintegrating near your shores, and why points....are a short term solution.....!!!!

My 06 would not operate in the rain. The fix came from Terry that included a bracket and ex coil from the old HD. New wires are tie wrapped to the coils.
Starts great and runs in the rain
