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

SOURCE: 1998 roadking idles to fast after it warms up.

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.

The truck is cutting out has no power dying when you stop wont idle right after it gets warm and won't idle at all


Not sure what you are working on, but it sounds like your coolant temperature sender is bad. When the truck is supposed to come out of phase lock loop it is not and is acting like the choke is on all of the time.

The popping at idle and deceleration (when the throttle is in the idle position) could be a lean mixture at idle.
A lean mixture sitting at idle for a long light would cause the engine to run hot.
Also, as the engine reaches operating temperatures, the idle will pick up.

Die's after warming Up


Sounds like the carbs are dirty, The mail inlet where the float works to shut off fuel when the bowls get full has a screen just under the needle valve and there are stopped up with crud, Pull the bottoms off and remove the float & needle valve and the the seat and clean, If you see dirt inside the float bowl then remove the jets and clean them also.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

Engine dies after quad is warmed up (10-15 minutes)


Just a hunch, had this happen to a bike of mine years ago, could be the piston rings are gettting ready to go(wore down). What happens is when the quad is cold the rings expand tight into the cylinder walls allowing it to get full compression and run ok. When it heats up they shrink allowing the slightest amount of give which in turn will cause you problems similar to what your describing.

COLD MORNING


no doubt this bike is running very lean at idle. Thats the way the EPA wants it. Im a harley mechanic and i used to work in a US dealer. all carb bikes at set up time had the carbs "readjusted". We drilled out the EPA plug and turned the idle air screw out and drilled out the pilot jet too. The bikes worked much better. we were at sea level too so the bikes were very lean from the factory. I can imagine that after the new legislation that came into force they are even leaner and require a full warm up to run properly. Warmed up means you put your hand on the motors head and its hot enought to have to jerk it away. this could take more than a couple minutes. and yes our "readjustment" was illegal. i advice you to do the same.
