Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king

1 Answer

My HARLEY ROAD KING FLHRI IS LOSING POWER WHEN THE ENGINE GETS WET ON RAINY DAYS. It makes a strange sound when revved and after a while will backfire loudly and then resume normal power. This only happens on wet days.

Somewhere between the fuel line and the injectors is allowing moisture in (hence this happens only on wet days). I do not know your level of experience with the newer Harleys so I am going to recommend taking your bike to either a dealer or a good indy shop and ask them to take a look. Sounds an awful lot like an air/vacuum leak somewhere along that line.

2005 Harley Davidson FLHRI Road King has no power to accessory switch


Hi, Tom for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can not find the best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

1997 flhri road king is missing running rich and popping


According to your description, your bike is a FLHRI. The "I" indicates that it is fuel injected. There are no adjustments that the owner can make to the fuel system. You'll have to take it to a shop,

Good Luck

Yamaha Vity 125 2013 intermittent problem with starting up. When ignition pressed the bike makes a sounds where it is turning over but no sign of it kicking into life with fuel igniting My Yamaha Vity 125 2013 has an intermittent problem where it doesn't start. The symptoms: electrics seem to be fine as dashboard lights up when key is turned. When ignition pressed the bike makes a sounds where it is turning over but no sign of it kicking into life with fuel igniting. Bike is otherwise fine, first occurred immediately after MOT and Service and over the last 6 months I have not had any other problems. Oil levels look fine. Issue has occurred with full and low tank of petrol so don't think it is affected by this. Issue has occurred at different times throughout day and in differing weather conditions from cold winter to very warm. Issue has occurred in three scenarios: (1) When I mistakenly tried to start bike with kick stand down, the bike starts up and then immediately cuts out as it should as there is a sensor. When I did this, each time the above symptoms would occur and I would not be able to start it until the next day... I suspected flooding engine but don't know for sure. (2)Since we had the warmer weather this week, the issue has reoccurred with a vengeance. It has started fine in cool mornings but failed to start in the afternoons. Someone said there is a history of Yamaha's having fuel pumps affected by hot conditions that can cause this but... (3)...it has also occurred a couple of times quite randomly. No obvious cause. Weather conditions cold, not freezing/wet just a normal cold winter's day. The garage and I are stumped as to the cause. An independent mechanic also couldn't find any obvious problems with bike. I'm not sure if it could be one problem causing all three scenarios or if I have multiple issues. Any help or ideas very welcomed!!
