How do you adjust Idle speed

In another thread I saw a discussion of fuel leaks and overflow in which someone was kind enough to post a picture of the page in the manual that showed you need to be fairly far down the filler neck.

My 08 1098 had a very bad fuel leak that was visible. I was told that I overfilled the tank, but that was not it. What it turned out to be was a missing bolt out of the bottom of the injector body that let the fuel leak with ease. My local dealer could not believe what they had found, now it is leak free and I dont have the fear of bursting into flames riding down the road. I hope this helps.

I have a engine code p0505 on a 2006 harley flhx, what is that mean?


P0505: Loss of idle speed control.

Does it idle fast or rough? Fluctuates up and down?

Best guess: Intake manifold leak or your IAC (idle air control) needs cleaned, your idle speed needs adjusted.

Everything I can think of:
Bad/carboned up IAC, vacuum leak, leaking injector(s), contaminated fuel, TPS off ( throttle cable/TPS needs adjusted), battery voltage less than 9 volts, overfilled crankcase. VSS (Vehicle speed sensor) defective, it will disable idle speed control. Loss of battery power to to pin number 31? (sorry no manual handy for pin number) on the ECM.

When i start the bike cold or hot i have black smoke from the exhaust pipes..choke on or off and cant get bike to idle..i turn off the petcock and after a few seconds the idle starts to come back to...


Black smoke indicates that your mixture is way too rich. Now, you didn't say what carb you're running, stock or aftermarket. But, what it sounds like to me is the needle and seat in the carb is leaking fuel and overfilling the float bowl. When you're running down the road, you'll using enough fuel so that the float bowl does not overfill. When idling, you don't use as much fuel, the bowl overfills, and fuel flows into the carb creating a very rich mixture. Is you overflow hose that connects to the bottom of the float bowl connected, clear and open? If so, turn the petcock on without the engine running. If the overflow is clear and the needle valve is leaking, you should see fuel start to flow out of the overflow hose. This is very important that it do this. If the overflow hose is blocked and you forget to turn your petcock off, you could wind up with a couple of gallons of fuel in your engine. It will leak out of the float bowl, into the carb past the intake valves, past the rings and into the engine. I've also seen it get into the primary drive case as well. I'd put a new needle in the carb and check the float setting according to the book. it's sets with the carb on an angle if the carb is the original Keihin CV.

Good Luck

How to adjust the idle nob on a 2002 crf 450r. the problem is it is letting in too much fuel causing it to pour out of the overflow. and i need to know the factory setting for the idle adjuster nob


The reason your carburetor overflows is not from an incorrect adjustment, but because the float valve is hung open by dirt or some other foreign debris. Turn the petcock off, then locate the drain screw on the bottom of the bowl and drain the fuel out. Then turn the petcock on again - and check for overflowing. If the overflow continues, the you will need to remove the float bowl, the float and float valve - clean each and reinstall to fix the problem.
