Hi 66fabman, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50.00 Good luck and have nice day.

SOURCE: 1998 roadking fuel injected idles to fast after it

One item you might want to check is for a vacuum leak. All the rubber plugs and stuff on the module sometimes wear and leak. If the change was sudden or recent this might also be the culprit.
The IAC motor is not that difficult or expensive to replace if you feel you need to do that just let us know. Hope this helps,

JP

SOURCE: 1998 roadking idles to fast after it warms up.

Is it fuel injected or carbureted? If the bike is fuel injected it will idle fast until the engine warms up...if it continues to idle fast after about 10-15 seconds it could have a faulty sensor.

If carbureted, after you push the choke in does it still idle fast? If so, there is an idle adjust screw on the top of the carburetor just behind the air cleaner.

Do you have a tach on the bike? If you do, then the normal warmed-up idle should be 1000rpm.

SOURCE: my 2000 roadking classic at

If the engine is equipped with a carburetor, it sounds like the accelerator pump is not working. Take your air filter off and with the engine OFF, crank the throttle wide open. You should see a squirt of fuel squirt into the carb from the brass thing in the mouth of the carb. If not, the accelerator pump is not working. It probably needs a new diaphragm in it.

To put a new diaphragm in the carb, remove the air filter backing plate and take the four screws out that holds the float bowl on. With the float bowl off the carb, turn it upside down. Take out the remaining two screws in the accelerator pump plate. You'll see the diaphragm and the return spring under the plate. Put the new diaphragm on position with the sping on top and reinstall the plate. Put the float bowl back on the carb and reinstall the air cleaner backing plate. Make sure the throttle works as it should and start the engine. It should rev cleanly now.

Good Luck
Steve

Hd 96 roadking efi. Idles ruff and when given gas in gear wants to die unless i give it full throttle. Put in new wires and plugs and after a few minutes of running plugs were black. Also back fires when...


Check the air filter is clean, and the ignition for correct operation. The plug indications are that the engine is running rich (too much fuel) or that the ignition spark is weak.

It is a2004 roadking,it is backfiring, running fast and rich.the garage have had it on their machine,but the fault is not showing.


I assume your bike is fuel injected. Did you take it to a shop that had a dynometer that is equpped with an exhaust gas analyzer? Most of the shops here run the bike up in the RPM range and check the fuel mixture at different RPM ranges. They want to get your bike so that it has a fuel air ratio of between 13.5 and 14.0 throughout the range from idle to about 4500 RPM.
