    your bike is injected and to increase the idle speed you have to go thru the ECU have you changed any parts air filter pipes

Possible cause is a crack in the fuel filter shell which is installed inside the fuel tank. Harley has a recall for affected models. Post your VIN number or go to your local dealer and ask him is there a recall for your bike. All he will need is the VIN number and any recalls will be done under warranty. By the way, not sure of the year of your bike but it may still be under warranty anyway. Other than that there could be a TP sensor fault.

    I had something similar happen to my 2007 street glide, what would happen especially when i came off the hwy and started gearing down it would conk out and other times it would rev high, but once i replaced the engine temperature sensor the problem went away. Hope this my help you.

You need to adjust the idle speed or if the bike had been running OK and nothing has been adjusted, the idle jet (carb)needs cleaning out or the MAS/throttle body(injection) needs attention. Other reasons include points (if fitted) and plug gaps, or air filter/scoop clogged.

I have a 2007 street glide that dies at idle when coming to a stop, also back fires when slowing down.


Have the computer re-mapped. I have the same bike with a stage 1 upgrade. The race tuner was bad. Dealer removed it, remapped the stock computer with the stage 1 settings and all has been well since.
