Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)

My 2003 Road king classic stalls taking off..


hi there this sounds like the timing is off but it sounds like you have already considered this the most common problem with this and hi idleling sounds like you have a major air leak from a gasket leading into your motor check by spraying a aerostart around the joining area of your carby if the motor speeds up then you will spot your problem but if your bike motor is red hot do not spray this ether based spray as you might need a paint job as well just kidding ,but without doing this test i am still confident that you have a air leak cheers hope this helps

2007 Road King Classic stalls unexpectedly when driving...no sputtering, just shuts down...starts back up whether stationary or driving...but no warning about cut off


Will the bike start up without turning off? If you have to turn ignition off then on again before it will start it may be the bank angle sensor gone faulty. This will set NO error codes in memory as it is NOT a recognised fault. ECU simply thinks bike has fallen over and shuts engine down.

High idle on HD, 08 Road King Classic


For fast RPM's at start that doesn't go down shortly after starting.
1) Put bike in neutral
2) Push to ON the first switch to right of starter switch next to throttle.
3) turn dial on gas tank to the On position for 5 seconds then off wait 2-3 seconds and repeat 3 more times total of 4 times
4)then Turn everything to off positions
5) wait a few seconds and start normally

I found that if you shut down the bike with rpms up a bit, it will start the next time with a faster than normal idle.

If you do this technique when the bike is cold, it will run a little fast til it warms up. Don't ask me why this works.

2003 road king speedometer stopped working & the mileage isn't changing either


Check to see if there is any back lighting.

Pull the speed sensor from the transmission case and if there are any metal filings on it clean them off and replace it. If there are not filings you may need to replace the sensor. The speedometer head itself or wiring conneftors could be the porblem as well.

2002 road king classic keeps stalling when i come to a stop and there is some backfire as well . when i first start up the bike it will idle .


If your bike is fuel injected, there is nothing you can do. You must take it to a shop and let them set the idle speed. If it's equipped with a carb, remove the air cleaner cover and look at the square top on the carb. Just to the right of that cover is a screw, the throttle stop screw. Turn this screw clockwise to increase the idle speed. It should idle at about 1000 RPM.

Last night on the ride home, the speedometer was reading twice the speed I was going. When stopped, it went to zero, but at 50 mph, it read 100 mph. I think I know how to remove the center console so I...


I'd pull the speedometer sensor out of the transmission and wipe it off. Sometimes, a bit of metal will get on the sensor and mess it up. If that doesn't work, I really don't know what to tell you as I don't mess with the electronics on the newer bikes.

2003 HD Road King - starts fine, idle normal. Once it is warm, idles at 2000 rpm. Does not come back down, even after riding for an hour or two. Only idles normal when cold. Help??


If you bike is equipped with a carburetor, the idle stop screw is located at the top of the carb on the right side. Counterclockwise turn slows the idle speed.

If you bike is fuel injected, a dealer or shop will have to set the idle speed electronically.

Good Luck
