I'll assume your clutch master cylinders (top & bottom) are good. get an extra bottle of brake fluid,if that what your bike uses for its clutch fill and cover upper master cylinder,pump the handle and hold,bleed from bottom master cylinder (it has a nut to bleed with) ,repeat this step till it fully opens clutch. never letting upper master cyliner run dry.

I have a 2003 ktm 250sx and when shifting at high rpm's it won't shift.


How is your clutch? Does it slip or drag when starting out? When you put it into 1st gear when starting out does the bike lunge forward? Hold it in first gear with the clutch in and rev the bike up. See if the bike wants to move forward with the clutch in.It sounds to me like your clutch isn't set right or getting worn out. Much easier to shift at low rpms on a clutch than high rpms. I hope this helps...

Just bought a 99 wide glide, rode it home last night and it was sputtering pretty bad after about 150 miles and it would die at low rpms and make a sucking or hissing noise. Only has 13,000 miles on it. It...


It sounds like a carburetor problem it won't run without the choke on. The bike has probably been sitting up for a good while. I'd be willing to bet that the jets in the carb are stopped up. When gasoline evaporates in the carb, it leaves behind a gummy mess that will stop up the jets. This is probably what is wrong with your bike. The carb needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned. Unless you're experienced in doing such a job, it's one that is best left to the pros.

Good Luck

If you use a High octane gas, this may happen on the VL1500, You should only use regular Gas, and you will see a difference.

Idles high drops to normal then increases again


either a vacuum hose has come loose or is worn/cracked, or you might have a leaking head gasket.
when engine is running at a normal idle,... spray some carb cleaner around hose fittings and the intake manifolds one carb at a time..if the idle goes up..there's your problem.

Erratic clutch


are the gear change problem are from the clutch not fully disengaging. if this is a hydraulic clutch re bleed again. if clutch works good when engine cold, but not when hot, clutch itself needs to be adjusted or plates replaced

Lack of Power/Gas at high gear/RPM


Not a coil problem, gas problem. When you grab a handful of throttle with a fairly cold engine does it bog down on you? (choke off) if yes your running lean and likely need to go in and have your carbs cleaned out anf rebalanced.

Decrease hot idle


Your bike is carb or injected? Anyway Hd that are injected start at high RPM and after heating up the idle kicks down. You have a Temp sensor for this, which sounds like it is bad. I can not believe your bike would run at 100 rpm no way. harley runs at 950 to 1050 at an idle. It does not sound like you have a carb so Im not going to go into that fix.
