That's a toughee. I wonder if you have several issues happening all at once, OR the computer is having a nervous break down. I hate having other mechanics work on my bike, it's like letting someone else go through your wife's underwear drawer; but on this one a harley dealership has the right equipment and training. Sorry I can't be of more help

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.

I have a 99 road king with a 95 CI new engine. Yesterday after riding for about 80 miles, the bike stopped running. I left from a signal, shifted into 2nd and the engine backfired and shut off. After...

It sounds like a fuel flow restriction somewhere. Sure, it'll start every time and idle for a while but take it down the road a bit. If it quits, I'd suspect that for some reason it's not getting fuel to the engine from the tank. Loosen the fuel cap, the cap vent may be bad. The vented cap the right side tank cap. If it's fuel injected, it could be the fuel pump or something. It sounds like a fuel problem to me.

Good Luck

sounds like one of two things, first things first make sure your car has gas in it sometimes the gage can be off and show gas in it when there is very little, if the car is parked on a hill that could also be letting the gas flow away from the fuel pump also causing the car to sputter, If it has gas then your fuel pump is out and will need replaced. hope this helped

I have a 2002 dtr125, recently i ran the tank dry i refueled and it ran straight away. left the bike over night and started it the following evening, i rode 50m down the road and it died! still has full...

Sounds as if you have all the variables to make it go but, I'd suspect that either the tank filter is plugged or there is an inline gas filter that is plugged to a point it's only allowing a small amount of fuel (gas) to enter the carb. It's not uncommon after running and engine bone dry to pick up a bunch af rusty sediment in the bottom of the tank. the filters do their job but end up starving the engine of gas. There is a bit that's running through and after sitting for a few minutes the carb floats fill up and the motorcycle operated normally till the gas in the float bowls runs out and the engine dies.

Bike did not run for a few months , and now when I am starting engine runs and then stops after a minute or two.any help? bad fuel?

This sounds like a typical case of gas going bad and possible rust in your gas tank. Best to drain ALL gas from your tank - if you can easily remove it - take off the petcock and rinse the tank with fresh gas - look for any flakes of rust in the gas you drain out. Once you have the tank fully flushed - clean or replace your fuel filter and I would suspect that it will run just fine.
If you are not going to ride for an extended time frame - add Fuel Stabilizer" to the tank before putting it up. This is available at your local auto parts store. You will thank yourself for taking this precaution.

I just bought a 2002 Road and the Oil Light turns on before I start it. How do I add oil?

The oil light is supposed to turn on before you start the engine because since the engine is not running, there is no oil pressure. That is what this light is telling you, no oil pressure. To check and add oil, look down on the right side of the bike where the engine and transmission meet. There is a large chrome oil tank plug with a knurled edge. With the bike on the side stand, put the plug out along with the long dipstick. There are two marks on the stick, full cold, and full hot. Add oil where the plug came out, do not overfill.
