Runs and starts great but won't idle


Hi, Emmett and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

At idle left cyl misfires. Remove right plug wire at idle and bike dies. hold idle up and remove right plug wire and bike stays running. runs good on the road as long as you are in 2nd gear. Has good fire...


The two carbs are not balanced to each other. Balance as follows; Start the bike then increase the idle on the left carb to a high idle. Now unplug the right cylinder and the engine will slow down some. Now slowly turn the idle down on the left carb until the engine just dies. Hook up the right plug wire then do the same proceedure for the right carb. Now both carbs are balanced. Hook up the left wire and start the engine again. The bike will be running faster than you want so now adjust the idle screws on both carbs equally to get the desired idle speed. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

2000 XLH sportster bike starts up and idles right but once you put it in gear and try to ride cuts out and dies


Sounds like you're letting it idle too long with the enricher on. The enricher circuit is VERY rich and it will foul your plugs. When you start the bike, run the enricher only long enough to where you can get the bike to stay running with the throttle grip or throttle lock. Turn that enricher off as quickly as possible. Your plugs are probably fouled.

Good Luck

Starts, runs then shuts off


it might sound funny but bang on your fuel tank. make sure there is fuel in it.. does the vehicle have a security system? it might be malfunctioning..or does the vehicle stay running when you give it gas? it might be your idle air control valve..

Bike will not stay running with choke off.only has 600 miles on it.


It is likely that the dealer set the idle properly but as the bike is new it may need to be reset, most first services are scheduled for 600 miles or 1000km so that the dealer can make necessary adjustments.
You can check the location of the idle screw in your owners manual. Once the bike is nice and warm, try screwing the idle adjuster screw in 1/8th of a turn at a time until a steady idle is acheived. Otherwise take it back to the dealer, thats why you have a warranty.
