Default Is my crank position sensor bad?

2001 FLHPI fuel injected police roadking. 62950 miles.

Quick back story, yesterday (Thrusday) I took the bike on a long ride south to see the Chicago Bears training camp. On the ride down on 2 seperate times the engine lamp kicked on when getting up to speed after a stop sign. soon as I was at cruzing speed, it went off. It only did that twice. Didn't change the way it ran or nothing. Got to camp watched the pratice for about 2 hours, bike started fine and started my ride home. Stopped about 20 min into the ride and gassed up. no problems. Started on the long part of my ride and about 15 miles from home the bike at a stand still waiting for a light, just straight up died. Would not restart, even after cooling down.

So I disconnected the crank position sensor, hooked it up to my dvom, set it to ac/dc v and here's the reading after cranking it over.

Vid here.....

Seems low right? Bad sensor? From what I can find, most people that have a bad crank sensor, can cool it down, and get it running again. Not here.

On a side note, I tried to get the codes out of the speedo, and seems to have gotten 41 & 44. But that does not make sense from what I can find for codes. Any ideas folks? Thats for any input. Jason

Also, I have a factory tach, and when I crank it over it does read about 300 rpm's.

41 is the crank position sensor code and 44 is the bank angle sensor code

Looks like I might need to test the bank angle sensor as well. Anyone have the testing procedure for it?

From what I understand the Bank Angle Sensor is integrated in the Turn Signal Control Module. If it is the BAS, you should be able to cycle the Stop/ Run switch, and it should start. You may also want to check your main circuit breaker.

Ok, I guess the crank sensor needs to be plugged in when testing, it tests fine. Soo back to basics. Got out the spark tester... I have spark. Put a long screw driver on the injectors...they are clicking. Soo... Sprayed some brake cleaner down the throttle body.... And walla!! It starts.... So im gonna dive into the full gas tank (damnit) and see whats up.....
