Electronic throttle control

I have a 2008 Road King Classic with (the first year) TBW (Throttle By Wire - replacing throttle cables) and have no problems with it, and it doesn't do as yours does, but acts smoothly like a cable system.

My first suggestion is to take the twist grip off (you have to remove the master cylinder and switch housing) and check it's bore, and the handlebar end it rides on, for any built up crud (rust, dried up lube, etc.).

Throttle not snapping back to idle position on 1998 Harley road king classic. I have lube both cables and adjusted them, still won't snap back. Thanks for your help.

You need to take the entire throttle control assembly off the handlebars and disconnect the cables from the carburetor. Check each cable for free movement. If you have a frayed cable, you will never get it to work correctly so check the cables. Now when you go to put the assembly back together make sure you put some thin grease on the handlebar and inside the throttle sleeve before you slide it up on the handlebar. Put white lithium grease in the area where the cables connect to the throttle sleeve the bolt the two halves of the switch housing together. Slide the switch and throttle assembly all the way up on the handlebars and then back it off about an 1/8" or so. This insures that the handlebar is not rubbing on the inside of the end of the throttle grip.

Good Luck

My tail lights stay on, why

Try this, Loosen the two bolts that holds the front master cylinder onto the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If that doesn't extinguish the light, your front brake light switch is probably broken.

To change the switch, you'll have to open the right handlebar switch housing by removeing the two bolts that holds it together, take the throttle and idle cables loose and get the lower housing loose from the handlebar. The switch is held into the inner face of the housing by a single screw. Take the switch loose and desolder the two wires leading to it. Replace the old switch with a new one and solder the original wires to the new switch. Reassemble the throttle assembly and the switch housing. Check the throttle for proper operation. Make sure the throttle "snaps" shut when you release the throttle grip. Improper assembly or adjustment of the throttle cables can cause the loss of control of the motorcycle resulting in serious injury or death.

Good Luck

The wind affects the front brake on my harley 2006 road king. At speeds 70 and above, when I set the cruise, the wind causes the hand braketo move and disengage the cruise. there is a little slack on...

Loosen the two bolts that holds the front brake master cylinder on the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible and retighten the bolts. If that doesn't work, you may have to purchase a new lever and pivot pin.

Good luck

How do i replace right handlebar grip on 2008 fat boy

To change the throttle grip, first loosen the cable adjusters as much as possible. Then, remove the two bolts that hold the switch housing halves together. Lay the top half aside being careful not to break any of the wires. Roll the throttle grip until you can disconnect both the throttle cable and the idle cable from the grip. Slide the old grip off the handlebar. Put some thin grease inside the new grip and on the nylon piece where the cables connect. Slide the grip onto the handlebar and reconnect the cables. Replace the top half of the switch housing being careful not to pinch any of the wires. Make sure the switch housing is pushed all the way up against the front brake master cylinder and tighten the two bolts. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable. Check for proper operation of the throttle assembly. Improper assembly of the throttle control can cause uncontrollable acceleration of the motorcycle leading to severe injury or death. Make sure it works correctly BEFORE you start the engine.

How do you adjust the front brake lever, or the ''switch'' so the brake light will stay off while moving down the road

Loosen the two bolts that hold the master cylinder onto the handlebars and make sure the master cylinder is all the way back against the throttle control switch housing. If that doesn't fix the problem, you'll need to open the throttle control switch housing and replace the switch. It sticks out of the switch housing right in the front where the brake lever is.

New handgrips on 2008 road king

check any service manual, they are all about the same system. I think I know what you are saying though.Take the switch housing off the right side, twist the throttle one way then the other to dis connect cables( there is 2). Old grip should slip right off. Is ther manual cruise on it? If so, that will need to be dis assembled as well (in the switch housing) It is not easy to do if you have big mitts.
