But what could that rear engine knock be?
Hello, new Harley owner here and have rode a few hundred miles on it so far. Today I started to run out of gas so I hit the reserve. I made it to the station and filled up sry my fuel to on and left. About a mile down the road it just died. I waited about 15 minutes(trying to start it every few) it fired back up,rode for a few feet and it died again..finally got it back to rubber gas station and called for it to be Trailered home(about a 30 drive) got it off the trailer started it up and it had a back engine knock/tap from about half way to the top of the head. The station has a rep for having bad gas and I didn’t know it. I have drained the tank already. I plan to put gas in it that I know it’s grim a good station. But what could that rear engine knock be? The oil is full. Any info is appreciated. It’s a 99 sportster 1200
