Question about Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider Motorcycles
Ticks over to fast when warm. dont know where adjustment is.
Idle adjustment on back of carb near front of bike. As stated in another post. The bike NEEDS to idle at 1000 - 1200 rpm for proper oil flow.Anything less and you could starve the bike of proper oil circulation and damage the motor.

Put a carby kit through it and clean, inspect and blow all ports through, check intake rubbers for any leaks, (pin holes can change air fuel ratio) Especially check for obstructions in your idle/bypass jet, do the kit first so you know its right, then tune your idle mix until steady.

wens the last time u tested the battery-they wear out-inpect the whole electrical system for loose or corroded wires also-if alternator is bad it affects the batt life look over the fuel system also-a minor carb adjust could be at hand-cheers mate

There is no adjustment on the tappets in your 97 Fat Boy. It is equipped with hydraulic tappets similar to an automotive engine. Probably what you are hearing is a bit of wear in the rocker shaft. you can take your rocker arms out and have new bushings and shafts installed if it bothers you that much. If the tick is a loud tick, one where people turn around and look at your bike when you start it up, you may have a bad roller on a tappet. This makes a terrible noise. If this is the case, you are probably going to need a new camshaft as well and the locked up roller will gall the surface of the cam. I've seen these rollers go bad at any mileage from 13K to 70K.

SOURCE: how to adjust tickover on
Hi if you lift the tank, where the cables fit. Onto the throttle body, inthe middle of the cam as you shut the throttle you will see where the cam hits the rest, you will see a screw this is connected by a long wire to an addjusting screw, follow it untill you find the addjusting screw normaly on lefthand. Side just above front sprocket cover,turn in a clockwise direction to increase the speed and anticlockwise to slow the engine speed down
