2001 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic how to adjust the throttle cables

Hi, Eddie throttle cable adjustment is fairly simple but before making any adjustments you should disassemble the throttle control housing allowing access to the inner cable for lubrication. I highly recommend "DRY SLIDE" then reassemble the throttle control housing and proceed as follows:
1. Back off the jam nuts on the pull and return cable.
2. Screw the cable adjusters all the way in.
3. Back out the pull cable adjuster enough to open the butterfly plate to maximum horizontal position ie. straight across.
4. Back out the pull cable adjuster until the carburetor piston or slide is all the way up.
5. Lock down the pull cable jam nut.
6. Back out the return/idle cable adjuster until there is 1/8th" free play on the throttle grip while pulling moderately on the return cable.
7. Lock down the return/idle cable jam nut.
8. Snap the throttle several times to ensure integrity.
9. If the bike rpm's are too low and the engine does not idle, adjust throttle stop screw as required.

Electronic throttle control sensor

While I'd like to try and help, I'd need to know WHAT ABOUT the throttle sensor you're asking about.

I have a 2008 Road King Classic with the TBW (Throttle By Wire), and the shop manual with diagnosis flow charts at my disposal, but I need to know what your question is.

My back brake lights stay on my 2005 road king classic.

That will be either the front or rear switch sticking, first try unpluging the front brake light switch, with this disconected if the light stays on the problem is with the rear switch, locate the switch this will be close to the brake pedal normal spring opperated which can stick, check it is closing fully, you may also disconnect the switch and check the light goes out reconnect the front switch and check correct opperation, this would thenpoint the fault towards the rear switch

Throttle not snapping back to idle position on 1998 Harley road king classic. I have lube both cables and adjusted them, still won't snap back. Thanks for your help.

You need to take the entire throttle control assembly off the handlebars and disconnect the cables from the carburetor. Check each cable for free movement. If you have a frayed cable, you will never get it to work correctly so check the cables. Now when you go to put the assembly back together make sure you put some thin grease on the handlebar and inside the throttle sleeve before you slide it up on the handlebar. Put white lithium grease in the area where the cables connect to the throttle sleeve the bolt the two halves of the switch housing together. Slide the switch and throttle assembly all the way up on the handlebars and then back it off about an 1/8" or so. This insures that the handlebar is not rubbing on the inside of the end of the throttle grip.

Good Luck

What is the part that the air filter hook to on a 2000 road king. ours has broken

The air filter is comprised of three parts. The outer part is the air filter cover, then comes the filter itself, and finally, the air filter backing plate. The backing plate connects directly to either the carburetor or the fuel injector throttle body. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

How do you adjust the front brake lever, or the ''switch'' so the brake light will stay off while moving down the road

Loosen the two bolts that hold the master cylinder onto the handlebars and make sure the master cylinder is all the way back against the throttle control switch housing. If that doesn't fix the problem, you'll need to open the throttle control switch housing and replace the switch. It sticks out of the switch housing right in the front where the brake lever is.
