You have a HARLEY so why not take advantage of the superb self diagnostic system and see what DTCs are set. This will save you untold time, headaches and money. Then if you do not know how to display DTCs or you do not want to find out how to display the DTCs or if you just do on not want a quick and easy diagnosis and fix you could start by testing your engine temperature sender which is likely the problem.

form the sound of it you need a new clutch pak in the starter. Its pretty simply fix. don't let them sell u a new starter just a clutch pak for the starter. I take it by spinning u are not talking about the motor turning over. If its turning over then its not the starter.

SOURCE: how to slow fast idle in heritage softail

Sorry but you have to take it to a dealer or someone with a box that can adjust the idle speed. Your fuel injected bike is just like your car, there isn't much can as an owner can do to them anymore. It's been headed that way since 1999. The days of fixing your own motorcycle are slipping away quickly. That's why I'm keeping my old bikes. I can still work on them.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Too much slack in the throttle on my 2005 softail

Ok, I'm not very familiar with fuel injected models because I don't work on them but they should have a throttle cable like anything else. In the cable somewhere (usually close to the throttle grip) it has an adjuster. There should be two cables, a throttle cable and an idle cable. The throttle cable is the cable towards the front of the bike at the throttle mechanism as it pulls the throttle open. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable to take most but not all the slack out of the cable. You must have a bit of slack in each cable for the throttle to work freely. Do the same with the idle cable nearest the rear of the bike.
Once finished, with the engine off, twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position and release it. It should snap shut. If it doesn't it's not adjusted correctly. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable until the throttle operates properly. You must get this right.

Failure to properly adjust the throttle cables could result in the loss of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death. If you are not sure of how to do this, find someone who knows how to do it. You don't want your throttle sticking on you.

Good Luck

After about 10 minutes of riding, my bike dies. starts right when cranked but dies intermittently from there on.

You have a Harley so take advantage of self diagnostics and first off check your bike for DTCs. This can save you many troubles, much time, many headaches and LOTS of money. Then if you do not know how or want to find out how or do it, next thing would be to check out your Engine Tempersture sender.

Runs for few minutes down rode then dies get started again sometimes die sometimes fine if petcock diapham do i need to take off to check

To check the diaphragm, pull the fuel line off the petcock and connect a short hose leading into a catch can. Spin the engine with the starter or crank the engine for a few seconds and watch the rate of flow. If it looks like enough fuel, then the diaphragm is probably fine. Have you checked the tank vent in the fuel cap? If the cap vent is plugged, the bike won't run but about a mile or so before it quits. Loosen the fuel cap on the right side if your bike is a Softail otherwise loosen the fuel cap but don't take it completely off. Just enough to allow air to vent into the tank and take it for a ride. If the tank is full, I'd advise draining about half the fuel out or you'll have it in your lap. Not good. You can take the cap off, wipe it good and clean and try to **** and blow through it with your mouth. I've done it plenty of times because I didn't have time to ride the bike on the road. Might need to brush your teeth afterwards, and I wouldn't smoke for while, but it'll tell you if the cap vent is bad.

Good Luck

I have a 2007 FXDWG and after riding for awhile, when come to a stop it dies. it will start right back up every time. Today it even hic up'd a few times while riding. Any ideas?

If your bike is equipped with a carburetor, it sounds like it's idled a bit slow. It should be idling at or near 1000 RPM. If it's stock, the carb is jetted pretty lean to pass emissions tests as well. If you can richen it up by changing the slow speed jet up one size step. This will make the engine run smoother and eliminate the spitting out of the carb. If it's fuel injected, you'll need to take it to a shop that can change the fuel mapping. I know nothing about that as I work on the older non-fuel injected bikes.

Good Luck

Engine dies coming to a stop, restarting has a little knocking but then fires up. let sit awhile start up and runs fine sometimes for days or weeks and then happens again. 07 softail custom

You didn't say whether the bike was carburated or fuel injected but I would assume it is fuel injected. You'll have to take it to a dealer unless the computer has been changed. They can scan for codes and reset the idle speed.
