Question about Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

Throttle Loss 2009 HD Electra Glide Ultra Classic. Throttle loss & engine light on while on cruise control on the highway. It has never happened before but I just so happened to have my bike in for service of wheel bearing fell apart and had the front tire changed. The young test driver came back and said he lost throttle & warned that the engine light will come on and next drive, sure enough. What the heck??

Since 2008, Harley Touring models (like yours) have gotten rid of the throttle cables and went with TBW (Throttle By Wire), where electronic sensors are used instead.

Anyone would just be guessing without knowing the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC, or error codes).

Pull them and see what codes you have.

I guess this wasn't a Harley dealership shop, or I'd think they would have pulled the codes right then to see what was wrong!

Testimonial: "Yes it was a HD Dealer that it was towed to when the bearings fell out. He did pull the codes and told me that it's most likely the wiring connecter behind the air filter or up into the handle bars to the throttle. But just wondering if I had to pay to fix it again or if it's do-able on my own with a connection or electronic cleaner? Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate it!!"

    Fairly easy to get to connector behind air cleaner, harder to get to the one at the grip end. Try some contact cleaner, and maybe reassemble with some Dielectric grease:

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

Trottle cuts out on 09 ultra classic hd

There's probably a sensor in your throttle housing that regulates the amount of fuel that goes through the throttle body to the engine. The sensor could be located on the throttle or you may have a bad throttle body. There are computers on both ends. I believe you ought to call the dealer and find out
