Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FXDWG - FXDWGI Dyna Wide Glide
You failed to tell me what kind of carb you have on your bike. It came with an early Keihen Butterfly type carb but most people threw these things away shortly after getting the bike and changed to either a S&S Super "B" or "E" carb.
Now, it is not unusual for a bike to "Heat Soak" once they are turned off. Whent the bike stops moving and no air is flowing across the cylinders and heads, the heat of the engine tends to rise for a short while before starting to fall back down again. This is typical of a carburated bike because the carb jetting is critical of the heat factor. When the engine is cold, the engine likes a richer mixture. When it's hot, it likes a lean mixture. Since you cannot change the mixture readily you have to shoot for a compromise which make the engine just a bit lean when cold and rich when hot. That's why the automotive and motorcycle industry have been moving towards computer controlled fuel injection systems for years. Now, if it's really bad, there may be another problem. Let me know what type of carb you have and maybe there can be something done to where it's not so bad. Good Luck, Steve
