2006 Softails are Fuel Injected and as long as it is stock, you cannot adjust it. If you have a TTS or Master Tuner or another tuner, you can do it on the interface of the program. If you have a Power commander or another piggyback system you can adjust it on the pack itself or on the computer like the TTS.

First things first, CHECK FOR AN AIR LEAK. Usually if a EFI bike suddenly has a change in idle, 9 times out of 10 its an air leak. Check for that first.

SOURCE: oil drain plug

It is located on the right side just under the oil tank ; if you follow the rudder hose that exits the rear right side of your oil tank it leads to the bottom of the frame under this is the oil plug. This hose has a plug clamped to the end of it or stuck into a prug that is welded to the frame.
After this unclamp and pull the plug to make sure that you have the dipstick out before pulling it loose.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.
Thanks Rylee

Changed handle bars on my 1998 heritage and now the throttle isn't closing .

You need to adjust both throttle and return cables. They need to be the correct length and if you installed mini apes you likely also needed longer cables. Cables need to be adjusted so there is not binding and not rpm change when rotating handlebars fully each way with engine idling. If you do not know or cannot figure out how to adjust the cables etc make another post and ask.

My 2004 Heritage Softail Classic has devoloped a 'whirring' noise from the engine area. most noticeable at idle and low speeds. I am assuming it is from the counterbalance system in the 88B motor. Any...

I haven't had any problems with the balancing system. If the noise is coming from the left side, check the primary chain adjustment/adjuster. If it's coming from the right side, check the cam shoes. The shoes went bad in my '04 Fatboy and whined like it had gear drive cams. Good luck!

2006 Harley Davidson FLSTCI Heritage Softail Classic stops running when hot

Hi, Robert and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

Stalls on cold start up

Now, I don't know a lot about the electronic fuel injection systems on Harleys but I would guess that there would be an engine temperature sensor on the engine somewhere that would tell the computer that the engine is cold and to enrichen the mixture. The engine should go into high idle speed until the temperature comes up to a certain point as well.
