Hi Anonymous, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Please visit the website below for morinformation and good luck.

SOURCE: when riding 2005 fuel injected harley road king,

Sounds like the intake manifold is leaking. The area where the leak usually happens, are those two rubber sleeves that go from the heads, (Cylinder heads) to the intake. Sometimes the clamp/s loosen up. Sometimes these rubber sleeves deteriorate, and cracks form.

This makes the engine backfire, pop, and idle fast.

The added air at the wrong time cause a backfire, when you let off the throttle. The added air causes the engine to pop, because the exhaust valve has sucked up some cold air.
The engine idles fast, because more air is being introduced, and not metered by the injection system.

(The exhaust valve thing. Exhaust valves are supposed to open, and let exhaust out right? Well there is a thing called Valve Overlap.
The Exhaust valve hasn't closed all the way yet, and the Intake valve is opening.
The 4 stroke engine, (Of which a Harley is), has these four strokes.
1.Intake Stroke. Fuel/air is sucked in.
2.Compression Stroke. The piston comes up and squeezes the fuel/air mixture.
3.Combustion Stroke. The spark plug lights the fuel/air mixture off.
4.Exhaust Stroke. The spent gases are expelled out.

Your Road King has one camshaft. There are four cam lobes on it.
Intake, Exhaust, Intake, Exhaust.

If you had the camshaft in your hand, and had the gear end facing you, look down the camshaft. You will see those egg shaped cam lobes. You will notice that No.1 cylinder Intake lobe is facing to the left.
No.1 Exhaust is facing to the right.

If you put a degree wheel on the gear end of the camshaft, and had the No.1 Exhaust lobe ramp nose facing straight up, you would see that it's about 110 degrees, before the Intake lobe ramp at .050 lift, comes into play. (The roller, of your roller lifter has raised the Exhaust valve up .050 inch) There is about 55 degrees before the Exhaust valve hasn't quite shut.
This is okay for normal running. Introduce a vacuum leak, and the surge of extra cold air, makes it pop.

Solution? I suggest checking to see if the clamps on those rubber sleeves are loose. You can also spray WD-40 towards the ends of each rubber sleeve, when the engine is idling, and see if it speeds up. Means, one or more, of those rubber sleeves has deteriorated.

SOURCE: My 2008 road king has an annoying whine when I

Your transmission has a straight cut 5th gear and not a helical cut 5th gear.
HD fixed this whine with the 2010 touring models.

SOURCE: 2003 road king speedometer stop working no signal

Sometimes when I ride my 2002 RK 150 miles or more, the speedo quits, the signals won't cancel, and the idle drops to barely running. Anyone have any ideas?

Usually, the speedo pickup is located on the right rear of the transmission.

Hi I have a 2002 Road king Flhrci, but the described error/diagnostic code procedure with "Ignition button off, hold the Odometer button then turn on Ingnition then release odo button" does not work....


On my 2008 Road King, the procedure is right kill switch in RUN position, hold odometer reset button while turning on ignition switch, and do not release until all gauge lights come on, and speedometer needle sweeps entire range and back to zero, THEN release odometer reset button.

What is causing 2005 flhrsi road king custom speedometer to malfunction.


Hi,
Check first the FUSES, clean the terminals of the fuse and replace if already blown.
The intermitent location of the speedo means a trickle of voltage going into the system. The malfunction came when your charging the battery w/o removing the terminals.
Check and clean the harness connection.
Tell me if there is some more problem.

My 2000 road king speedometer and odmeter have both stopped working??well they work every now and then???? whats up???


My 2001 road king just did the same thing. The speedo would bounce up and down then quit altogether. Turns out the battery cables were loose. This caused the voltage to the speedo to be hit and miss. I tightened mine and it works great. The odometer had power but registered no miles. Pull the seat and check the cables. Got this fix from a local friend who owns a bike repair shop.

Speedometer quit working i checked the sensor and it came out clean


My speedo went out while riding. It would bounce up and down then stopped completely. The odometer still had power but would register no miles. A local mechanic suggested to check the battery cables. While this seemed odd to me, I checked and found them loose. After tightening them up the speedo and odometer worked fine. Apparently the voltage connection to the speedo was hit and miss. So far everything is working great.
