By design, as engine gets "too" hot idle goes down and firing of rear cylinder is skipped every second or third cycle.

2001 roadking EFI very fast idle

Hi Anonymous, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50 Good luck picture pintle IAC valve harley Google Search

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.

I have a 2001 Harley Roadking 88 Twincam fuel injection system problem bike had been sitting for long time and fuel is leaking from fitting`s below fuel tank how do you R&R seals.

You need special o-rings from H-D parts and then need small screwdrivers or like tools to replace them. Often there is trouble with this and people end up with a new tank fitting which requires disassembly of the tank top, removal of the fuel pump and filer etc. etc.

Set, hot cold idle

If your bike is equipped with a carburetor, there is a throttle stop screw on the right side of the carb up near the top.

If your bike is equipped with fuel injection, the idle speed must be set with the onboard computer at the dealership unless it is equpped with an aftermarket unit. I do not know how to do this as I know nothing about the fuel injection systems.

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.
