May be normal. When cold ,the bike should idle fast for a few minutes. If started hot, will idle fast for a few seconds. Cold idle should not exceed approximately 1800 rpm.

Hi, Michael could be a vibration/harmonics issue have you checked for generated fault codes? for this scenario, you will need a service/owners manual if you can not find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere $10 you can download another one.

Fast idle only when motor warms up

Hi Anonymous, remove air cleaner and backing plate, spray some starting fluid or Brake Kleen at intake manifold to head area and intake manifold to carburator area when engine is cold. If RPMS increase then you have an intake leak and repair as necessary. If you have a carburator your idle adjusting screw is in too far or your air fuel mixture is too lean or your fast idle cam on choke could be faulty. If you are injected please visit website below:

Lights dim when rpms up

Start by checking you're stator output, Put a meter on it in VAC ( Volts AC ) on the 2 wires coming out of the case ( on the left side of the bike ) run the bike General rule of thumb is 25 VAC for every 3000 rpm. ex: 25 @ 3000, 50 @ 4000, 75 @ 3000. On the older bikes as long as you're around 65 and up @ 3000 you should be good.
