If you have a newer Harley with fuel injection then there's an RPM limiter that will cut off the fuel when the bike hits 5500 RPM. 5500 RPM is well below the actual redline.
The fuel will start to flow again when the engine rpm drops below 5500.
It's a pretty abrupt feeling and can be very disconcerting the first time you hit it.
