Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic

1 Answer

My 1999 road king lost the front cylinder coming back from street vibrations. I removed the tank and found the throttle cable had worn through the coil harness. The blue wire with the orange tracer shorted out on the cable. I repaired the short but still get no spark form the coil to #1 cylinder. I've ohmed the wire from the ecm to the coil and it is fine. I suspect either the ecm or the coil. Any way to isolate which it may be?

Can a bad front shock on a harley road king cause a vibration

Not really it can make the front end bounce up and down after going over a bumpy bit of road but a worn wheel bearing can make it vibrate or a badly seated tyre.

Carburetor removal for 2000 Road Glide

Hi Anonymous, it's pretty straight forward, you might have raise or remove fuel tank to gain access. Start by turning off fuel valve, remove fuel line, air cleaner and backing plate, throttle cables, and choke cable, then just wiggle it out of the intake manifold. 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.

Need to connect throttle cable to throttle wheel

On my 2000 flhrci, if you remove the air filter you can see the wheel.

The cable that comes over the top is the decel cable or return and the one that comes across the bottom of the wheel is the accelerator. To replace I simply removed the two bolts on the front of the gas tank and raised it about an inch and was able to easily snake the replacement cable through the original location and hook it up to the wheel. Once connected, then connected the throttle side.

The hardest part of the cable change IMO was getting the dellerator side at the throttle to go on after installing the accellorator side. I would have sworn that there was not enough play in the cable to actually go back on, but after working with it for about 10 minutes I was able to manuever it on and it works fine.

My 2009 road glides' check engine light comes on intermittently. the dealer had it twice. the second time for 3 days. they removed the fairing and checked all wiring and found nothing. Then rode it for 80...

my friend has a 08 road king, and even though i told to not to use the kill switch he does. this caused him to twist the throttle too far forward when he shuts it down and makes the fly by wire system act up.

I recently purchased some new grips for my 2008 Road King. The instructions seemed pretty simple. However, when I attempted to remove the switch housing, right side throttle grip, I could not seperate them...

It should be one screw on top and one on the bottom, once you have these, the top should come off. this should expose the throttle cable, disconnect the cable which should let the bottom drop down and you can now slide the grip off of the bars and install your new one. It may be necessary to move the front brakelever/ master cylinder to allow access, for the couple more screws move it out of the way to make life easier..

Don't forget to put a small wedge in the front brake lever, to prevent damaging the brake switch on reinstall.

Hope this is of some help.
