All sensors and actuators must be in proper working order
and the engine must be in good condition in order for this
procedure to have correct and consistent results.
1. Remove right side saddlebag. See SADDLEBAG,
REMOVAL, in the appropriate FLT Models Service
Manual.2. Gently pull side cover from frame downtubes (no toolsrequired).3. Remove rubber plug from open end of Data Link connector and plug in Scanalyzer (HD-41325).
4. With the Engine Stop/Run Switch in the RUN position,
turn the Ignition Light/Key Switch to ON. 5. While observing TP voltage under the Data Monitor Menu of the Scanalyzer, turn the Ignition Light/KeySwitch back to the OFF position. Note that the TP voltage drops, increases and then stops just before electrical power is interrupted.If the Scanalyzer display stops within the voltage range listed in Table 1, then the cold idle speed doesnotneedto be adjusted. Proceed directly to WARM-SLOW IDLE SPEED ADJUSTMENT on page 2.(6. If the TP voltage is out of range, proceed as follows::--a. Remove air cleaner and backplate assembly. See AIR CLEANER, REMOVAL, in the appropriate FLT Models Service Manual.
b. With the Engine Stop/Run Switch in the RUN position,
turn the Ignition Light/Key Switch to ON and
then back to the OFF position. The idle speed control
actuator retracts, and then moves out to the
parked position. c. Unplug the wire harness connector from the idle speed control actuator. See Figure 1.d. With the Engine Stop/Run Switch in the RUN position, turn the Ignition Light/Key Switch to ON. e. While observing TP voltage under the Data Monitor Menu of the Scanalyzer (or Breakout Box and
DVOM), use a T10 TORX drive head to adjust the
cold idle speed set screw until reading is within the
voltage range listed in Table 1. Be sure not to move
the idle speed lever while turning the screw.
NOTE:--Gently open the throttle to better access the cold idle speed set screw. After making the adjustment, gently roll the throttle closed and recheck the TP voltage reading.
DO NOT allow throttle to "snap shut" or the idle speed control actuatormay move (resulting in an unwanted voltage change that requires the adjustment procedure be restarted).

1996 road king stalling while riding


Possible Intake boots leaking causing a mistfire and running lean. Make sure you run the harley plugs. Is there a power commander on it ? If you do they are known to go bad and mess up runablilty.
This may be a long shot but since you have the magnelli marelli fuel injection system , you might need a hot/cold idle adjustments and clean out the inside of the throttle body.

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 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

Idle is too low how to raise. also starting revs are too low after it starts


You may experience erratic idle on Marelli early Twin Cams. One cause of this is the air bleeds being partially restricted in the throttle body.

Start out by cleaning out the air bleed holes in the throttle body with some spray carb cleaner with the straw nozzle on it and see if it makes a difference. They are small pin holes (2) in the inner throttle body of the intake system at the 10 O' clock position for the front runner and the 2 O' clock position for the rear runner.

Otherwise try this procedure to see if it helps.

Take the right side cover off

You need a tach for this simple procedure

1. Get engine up to normal operaing temp.

2. Set the hot idle to approx. 1000rpm.

3. Unplug the connector to the idle speed control actuator. (now the engine thinks it's cold ).

4. Set the cold idle @ 1500rpm.

5. Shut the engine off

6. Remove the EFI fuse cover

7. remove the 5 & 15 amp fuses.

8. Go take at least a 30 minute break

9. Put the fuses back in.

Next time you start you bike the ECM will remember the new idle settings you have done!


Here's the service bulletin on it also.
