Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRI Road King
After warming up or after riding less then 10 miles bike starts dying when stopping at lights acts flooded when restarting not sure what is going on
Take out one or both of the spark plugs and see what they look like. If they are sooty or dark black and possibly smell like gasoline, then you have a spark issue. Might need to replace the plugs, or the coil or the CDI. It could even be a battery starting to go bad.
If the plugs are a light tannish or brown color that the spark is most likely fine and you have a gas supply issue. Make sure the supply line to the carb/fuel injection pump is open. If that is fine you might have either a plugged jet or passage way in your carb if your bike is the FLHR or maybe a bad fuel injector or something going on ther if you have th FLHRI.
Hope this helps and good luck

Is it fuel injected or carbureted? If the bike is fuel injected it will idle fast until the engine warms up...if it continues to idle fast after about 10-15 seconds it could have a faulty sensor.
If carbureted, after you push the choke in does it still idle fast? If so, there is an idle adjust screw on the top of the carburetor just behind the air cleaner.
Do you have a tach on the bike? If you do, then the normal warmed-up idle should be 1000rpm.
