Loosen the two bolts that holds the front brake master cylinder on the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible and retighten the bolts. If that doesn't work, you may have to purchase a new lever and pivot pin.

Good luck

Testimonial: "The master cylinder is as far right as it can go.However, the lever does have a little slack up & down & front to back, guess I'll get another lever. The bike has about 10,000 miles. Thanks for your help!"

    If the lever has that much slack in it, maybe a new lever and pivot pin is in order. The lever has a small tab on the rear of the lever that contacts the front brake light switch. When you pull the front brake lever, the tab moves forward and allows the brake light switch plunger to move outward towards the master cylinder. When the switch makes and turns the brake light on, it is also wired to disengage the cruise control if the control is engaged. Hopefully the new lever will solve this problem.



    Good Luck

My 2006 road king Harley won't start after riding over a curb


You didn't describe the "click"

A series of rapid clicks means a low battery, or a bad (usually ground) connection, like if you crunched/abraded a wire along the lower frame when you drive over a curb.

A single, loud click indicates its a bad starter relay, about a $12 part:

I know how to set the thumb cruise control on my 2001 Road King Classic, but how does it release without backing the screw off by hand?


You answered your own question. Its technically not supposed to be used as a "cruise control". Its primary function was/is to hold a steady idle speed during "warm-up". It is simply a manual screw in = "on" and screw out/release the tension for "off".

Brake light don't work replaced all fuses, what do i do? 2005 Road King FLHR


If neither the front brake nor the rear brake will make the light come on, I would suspect the bulb if the fuses are not blown.

Cannot set the cruise. It will turn on, but will not set.


Check to make sure the cable that connects to the throttle body for the cruise control is connected.

On the bottom of the speedometer I have a red warning light illuminated looks like a clock with a red arrow pointing at the ten oclock position. Just bought the 2009 road king Friday and they did not have...


that indicator is your cruise control "not engaged". When you turn off the cruise control switch the light goes out. When you "set" your speed in cruise control the red indicator goes green. when you touch the brake to disengage "cruise" it goes red.

Brake light stays on causing cruise control not to engage. 2005 road king clasic


hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

Brake light stays on


There is a switch in your right-hand switch housing which is activated when your front brake lever is depressed.  If this breaks, your brake light will stay on.  To check this, you'll need to take apart your switch housing.  The two screws are a torx 25 and the two holding your master cylinder on are a torx 27.  The switch is right behind the brake lever.  If this is the problem, you'll have to buy a new switch and sodder it in.

How do you set the cruise control on my 2008 Road King Classic, FLHRCI. I bought the bike, no manual... Thank-you


Luckily, I have a 2008 Road King Classic (FLHRC) WITH a manual!

On the left handlebar switch housing there is a lever below the left turn signal button.
It should be flipped to the right for the cruise control to be on, left is off.

On the right switch housing, is a similar lever, below the right turn signal button.

When you're above the minimum speed (I do not know what this is, but 30 MPH is not fast enough for it to engage), push the lever to the right (towards the grip end). This will "SET" the speed.
If you hit the brakes, or accelerate above a certain rate, the cruise will kick off.
To get back to the set speed, when you're above the minimum speed, flip lever to the left to resume.

When the speed is set and engaged, to increase the set speed, flip right lever to the right, to slow, flip to the left.
