20 thousand rpm? I don't think so. Obviously you're reading the tachometer wrong. It may be idling at 2000 rpm. I agree that this cold start fast idle is a bit high for me as well. You have no choice but to take it to a dealer or an independent dealer that can change the setting in the fuel control computer for the cold start fast idle speed. There is nothing that is "user controllable" on the late model's fuel control system. Sorry.

Good Luck
Steve

My 1996 ultra classic has a hiccup at 3k rpm. Could it be anything other than air-fuel?


well it sounds like its air/fuel There is a transfer spot in the carburetor where it changes from the LOW speed mixture to the HIGH speed mixture but if you have to much air , it will burp and also if you dont have enough fuel, it will also burp.You can either try changing the idle air screw or putting in 1/2 size bigger pilot jets. good luck

When I first start my 99 electra glide classic, it idles at about 1k. If I then blip the throttle, the idle drops to about 400 rpm. It remains there until I ride for about 20 minutes. Then it stays at...


If your bike is fuel injected, this is typical. What is happening is the fast idle is keeping your engine running until you blip the trottle. When you do this, the fast idle relaeses the idle speed control. Once the engine gets to full operating temp, the idle speed is correct.

Good Luck
