Have the computer re-mapped. I have the same bike with a stage 1 upgrade. The race tuner was bad. Dealer removed it, remapped the stock computer with the stage 1 settings and all has been well since.

I have a 2007 FXDWG and after riding for awhile, when come to a stop it dies. it will start right back up every time. Today it even hic up'd a few times while riding. Any ideas?


If your bike is equipped with a carburetor, it sounds like it's idled a bit slow. It should be idling at or near 1000 RPM. If it's stock, the carb is jetted pretty lean to pass emissions tests as well. If you can richen it up by changing the slow speed jet up one size step. This will make the engine run smoother and eliminate the spitting out of the carb. If it's fuel injected, you'll need to take it to a shop that can change the fuel mapping. I know nothing about that as I work on the older non-fuel injected bikes.

Good Luck
Steve

I just purchased a 2007 Street Glide (traded a Heritage Softail) and it seems to vibrate excessively at idle. Perhaps I'm just not accustomed to it yet. Your thoughts?


the touring models are going to vibrate or more so shake at and idle more than your softail.the one major difference in your twin cam "B" engine and twin cam 96" A engine is that the softail is counter balanced in the crank case and is also a solid mount engine. straight engine to frame.these two counter balancer's are chain driven off of the crank. the street glide has three rubber mounts on it, one being in the front where the wish bone or down tubes turn inder the bike and two in cleave blocks that are alighned by small pins to be located in the correct position the swing arm also uses these in mounting the swing arm. so you will notice at around 75 mph to 80 mph you may get a "rider known death wobble" (just slow down) there are after market braces in all ranges of price to solve that problem. the more expensive the better it will last and work.

Harley Davidson street glide idles low and sometimes dies at stop signs?


Possible cause is a crack in the fuel filter shell which is installed inside the fuel tank. Harley has a recall for affected models. Post your VIN number or go to your local dealer and ask him is there a recall for your bike. All he will need is the VIN number and any recalls will be done under warranty. By the way, not sure of the year of your bike but it may still be under warranty anyway. Other than that there could be a TP sensor fault.
