2004 Road King Custom just started missing and sputtering, strangely enough if it is idling on the side stand it runs well, but as soon as you put it upright it starts coughing, missing & sputtering and someitmes will stall.

Sounds like possibly a split fuel line or fuel component in the fuel tank

Check HT leads, connection and the spark at the plug to see if it nice and bright.

Is the battery charged fully or is it old? They don't last very long on Harleys.

See if the regulator is any good ( dealer or friend swap if possible to check).

SOURCE: replaced battery but the solinoid just ticks

Check the voltage at the solenoid. If you have a loose cable or broken wire somewhere, as you try to start the bike your voltage will drop below 10v while attempting to start.

I also have an 05 Road King Custom. You have to remove the cover where the key fits to lock the forks, then remove the headlight and remove the screws from inside the housing to gain access to the handlebar bolts.

I'm looking at buying a 2004 Road King Custom with 8000 km on it...just wondering what I should look for as far as any troubles with the bike??that may be expected??

A 2004 RK with 8K on the clock shouldn't have anything wrong with it other than it may have been sitting for an extended period of time. In that case, the carb or the fuel injection system my need to be serviced with a thorough disassembly and cleaning. But, if the bike runs good at idle and highway speeds, I'd change the lubricatants and ride that bike. Something that it really needs.

Good Luck

How many quarts of oil is needed for an oil and filter change?

I always put in three quarts initially. Then start the engine and run it for about three or four minutes checking for leaks and to fill the oil filter. Then check the oil with the bike on the side stand and top it off. The dip stick has two marks on it. One is "FULL COLD" the other is "FULL HOT". Since the engine has only run a few minutes fill to 'FULL COLD' mark, do not overfill.

2004 Road King Custom, sounds like and feels like no gas.

It most probably just needs a good ride to clean the cob-webs out. But, check your battery terminals to make sure they are clean, make sure your battery is fully charged. Then take it for a series of short runs so that if it ***** itself, you are not far from home. If it now starts to show signs of improvement, then get it out onto a freeway where you can idle along a 110 kph and it should come good. If there is no improvement, then get an auto-electrician or a bike mechanic to run a multi-meter over it to make sure that the electics are OK. Only then start looking at the carbys, it is rarely their problem.
