Hi Hal, harleys are pretty waterproof when it comes to weather so i would check for spark at the plugs first, then see if you can pull up any codes on speedo. Good luck

I have a 2007 HD XL 883 with fuel injection. On hot days, when I turn on the key, there is a whistling sound that continues even after I start the bike and stops after it runs for about 10 minutes. ...


ask your mechanic,
noises are the most complex of all problems
and nobody here can hear them.
my wild useless guess, is air cleaner leaks.
always works.
use a rubber to ear, move hose, find source.
easy peasy.

2003 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster It starts and runs perfect when cold.When it warms up to 150 degrees at wide open acts like it is running out fuel,At 180 does it at half throttle and above,At 190...


That's a strange one. The only things I can think of suggesting are:
  • Clogged gas cap vent. The next time is starts running poorly, remove the gas cap briefly and see if things improve. If so, then the cap is not venting as it should.
  • Moisture trapped in float bowl. Drain the contents on the carburetor float bowl into a clean container and check for dirt, rust, water, or anything else that doesn't belong there.
  • Dirty fuel filter. If there is one, replace it.
  • Air leak between carb and engine. Check tightness of clamps and manifolds for cracking. WD-40 sprayed around those areas with the engine idling will help detect any leaks.
That's all I can think of. Please let me know if any of my suggestions fixed it.
