Hello. Sorry to hear you have this problem. First you need to check all connections of the battery cables. See if any of the cables insulation has rubbed trough to the frame. This will cause a short. I know this is a long shot, but it may be your problem I hope. If all looks good the ECM is at fault causing this problem. There will be no other reason for this problem but what is described above

Get your battery checked. If the battery passes, make sure it is fully charged and check the charging system (stator and regulator/rectifier).

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
