SOURCE: how do you adjust fuel injection modual on 2005

Well fuel injection means that the amount of fuel squirted into combustion chamber at firing mode is controlled by your CPU (your programmed bike computer) which can only be modified using a special program normally available to bike service/repair shops only.
So to answer your question, no you can not changed it unless you have a laptop with the required cabling and program to modify it plus you know what you are doing as this area is a high tech knowledge area.
To adjust it you need to take it to the specialist technicians. Good enough and answer your question?

Does a harley deluxe have a fuel filter

Yes. On a carburated bike is is on top of the fuel petcock. Fuel injected bike has it near the fuel pump. Both are inside the fuel tank.

I have a 2005 deluxe injected and my petcock is leaking whats the fix for this PLEASE?

If it's a stock petcock, it should be one of the vacuum operated types. You can get rebuild parts from Harley as far as I know. You'll have to remove the petcock, disassemble, and replace the parts inside. Since these petcocks are prone to problems of not allowing fuel to flow to the carb, I usually recommend that owners having problems with them simply replace their stock petcock with a high quality aftermarket manually operated petcock. I prefer the Pingle petcocks but they are pricey but they are very high quality that you can feel when you turn your fuel on or off. No more problems with one of those.

Good Luck

I will run about 300 feet and shut off. It has fuel injection on it and how do i get into the fuel tank to take the fuel pump out so i can check the fuel filter. it has done alot of sitting and not much...

Two different ways to drain the tank. The first option is to use a squeeze bulb pump ( like the one for a boat motor ) The second option is to rtermove the cross over tube off of one side of the front of the gas tank. Have a container ready to catch the gas, and a 1/4" cap to put over the tube that you removed the hose from. Be quick because once you start it is tough to stop with out making a real mess.

Where is the fuse box on a 2005 harley davidson deluxe?

Hi 1lawolfe1, on a Softail remove seat and directly behind the battery is a black plastic box. The cover slides up and off revealing the starter relay and the system/fuel pump relay for you injected folks and the various assorted circuit fuses. Good luck and have nice day.

2006 flstni stalls out intermittently. thought it was low fuel but does it with full tank too

if you are fuel injected I would have to say fuel pressure regulator housing has broken

My 2006 flstni coughs and backfires. In cold and / or damp weather it is worse.

If it's fuel injected, your dealer should be able to remedy that problem, it sounds like it's running a bit lean. He'll have to change the fuel delivery a tad.

Good luck

The bike dies when coming to a stop. then it starts right back up. i think the idle need to be turned up?

If it's got a carburetor on the engine, you'll see a flat top on the carb. Look just to the right of this top and you'll see a screw. This is the throttle stop screw. Turning it clockwise increase the engine's idle speed, counterclockwise decreases it. You may have to take the air filter cover off to see the screw.

If your bike fuel injected, you must take your bike to a shop as the idle speed is controlled by the computer.

Good Luck

Are platinum plugs a common issue w/ fuel injection?

I put platinum plugs in my fuel injected car, and had many problems till i switched back to standard plugs. So i would say yes, there is some truth in that.

Curious about what the letters signify in harley davidson motorcycle model FLSTN/FLSTNI. I assume STN = SofTail Nostalgic, what is FL & I?

F means it has overhead valve "big v-twin"
L means wide front tire
ST-Softail like you thought
N-Nostalgia like you thought
I means fuel injected (they used to offer with a carb)

hope that helps
