SOURCE: 99 HD softail stalling problem

If this is occuring everytime you ride the bike and always when it gets warm. I would think there is a good chance that the sensor in the timing cover is getting hot and then developing a short. You can replicate this synario by taking a hair dryer and warming the cam cover around the timing plate, if the bike wont start after warming the timing cover then you have a bad ignition sensor plate. if the bike still starts you can also try the same technique with the ignition module itsself which should on that model be located behind the battery. heat causes shorts in those 2 items quite often. try it out and let me know what happened.

SOURCE: what size spark plug for a 2000 harley davidson road king carbed,

Your Twin Cam plug should be a 6R 12 Harley Plug. Often times the back fire is just the nature of the beast depending on what type of pipes you are running. Harleys do run lean, its an EPA thing thtas why they choke them down from the factory. Since you have a carb you could have an intake leak around the Intake. Also Under the carb is an adjustment screw. Harley plugs it up so people don't play with it. You have to just drill out the plug this will set your air fuel. Whenever I take a carb off I drill out that plug. Heat your bike up operating temp and ear tune that screw. Only other way is with air fuel analizer or a dyno. good luck.also that backfire is caused by fuel hitting your exhaust when you let off just to let you know.

SOURCE: valve noise 2006 road king

Hello redevil67...This is normal for the HD engine, it going to have valve train, top end noise at some point, some as early as 2000 miles. If you take it to the dealer they will try to sell you on worn tappets...key word here SELL..I've seen this many times, dealer replaces componets, 2000 miles later the noise returns.
These are hydraulic valves and as you probably know they operate at zero lash. Personaly, i feel that the problem is that the cams are not hardened properly or machined incorrectly.. When the leading edge of the cam lobes wear to a strange profile it tends to snap the lifter up in the lifter bore. This causes the rest of the valve train to rattle. You hear the noise on top but the culprit makin it, is the cams..Many chose to go with an aftermarket cam, such as an andrews...Another suggestion, is to switch oils. Don't know what you are useing now, but i'm not a fan of dino oil. As the temperature builds the more an oil is stressed. Lucas full synthetic 20w-50 or Mobil1 15w-50 are both excellent for anti-wear and long term protection.
I hope this helps, please rate me a fixya and good luck with your bike.

SOURCE: 2001 Road King. Runs fine for three or four

The same thing just happen to me and a friend of mine on our 2001 Road Kings. I am 95% sure your problem is the crank position sensor. We replace ours and the bikes are back to their glory.

Lift the back of the tank up and prop it up. Remove the chrome beauty covers, find spark plug wires and remove. Blow out with air first. Chaz Moto DC

So, you obviously have a V2,3,4,5 6 or 8. made by Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Boss Hoss or maybe even an MV agusta or Indian. But it could also be a K series BMW. Am I close?

I have a 95 Road King that isn't running right, it


Backfiring out of the exhaust is usually an ignition problem. Unburned fuel is getting into the exhaust system because it's not being ignited in the cylinder. When the engine fires on that cylinder again, it ignites the raw fuel in the exhaust causing the pop that people call a backfire. I'd investigate the ignition system. Connect a timing light to each of the spark plug wires if it has a single fire ignition or either of them if the ignition system is the stock dual fire. Start the engine and watch the timing light to tell if the engine is missing as the light will miss a flash.

Good Luck

My 2006 road king started to skip when driving in 5th gear doing 50 mph at a steady speed and only has 30000 miles on it , what could cause this?


Start with the simpliest and most likely things first. Check the spark plug wires and make sure they're on tight. If that's not it check where they plug into the coil and loose wires on the coil. How long has it been since you had new spark plugs? May be time for a new set. Check and clean or replace the air filter element. Check the vent in the fuel cap. Loosen the cap a bit and ride the bike. If the skipping stops, tighten the cap back down and see if the skip comes back. If it does, replace the cap.

If you don't find anything here, since your bike is fuel injected, you'll probably have to take it back to the dealer.

Good luck

Sounds like you have some EGR ports clogged up, remove the intake and look at the egr ports all but
#1 cyl port will probably be at least partially clogged, hope this helps
