Ok, I'm not very familiar with fuel injected models because I don't work on them but they should have a throttle cable like anything else. In the cable somewhere (usually close to the throttle grip) it has an adjuster. There should be two cables, a throttle cable and an idle cable. The throttle cable is the cable towards the front of the bike at the throttle mechanism as it pulls the throttle open. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable to take most but not all the slack out of the cable. You must have a bit of slack in each cable for the throttle to work freely. Do the same with the idle cable nearest the rear of the bike.
Once finished, with the engine off, twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position and release it. It should snap shut. If it doesn't it's not adjusted correctly. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable until the throttle operates properly. You must get this right.

Failure to properly adjust the throttle cables could result in the loss of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death. If you are not sure of how to do this, find someone who knows how to do it. You don't want your throttle sticking on you.

Good Luck
Steve

When i turn the switch on my gas line leaks


This may be due to the fuel pump pressurizing the fuel system if your bike is fuel injected. I know nothing about fuel injection systems on Harley bikes. I do not work on them. I specialize in the Evolution and earlier model bike without fuel injection on them. However, I have worked on other typs of fuel injected vehicles in the past. Check with your local dealer and see IF there have been any recalls on this as I've seen many complaints about leaking fuel lines. Doesn't hurt to ask.

Good Luck

I NEED TO KNOW WHERE MY FUEL FILTERS ARE LOCATED ON MY 03 SOFTAIL STANDARD


Any "filters" are located in the tank. On a carb equipped model, the 'filter" is simply a strainer over the inlet of the petcock. Not much of a "filter" in my opinion. I suggest everyone add one of the inline fuel filters like the Pingel filter.

Good Luck

Problem with 2005 softail deuce crank senser code


In the past I've read where this code has been thrown because the sensor being magnetic has collected some metal particles from the engine. If you remove it and clean it with brake cleaner, and reinstall it, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 softail duece, fuel injected that idles too high.


If it's fuel injected, the dealer will have to set the idle speed for you unless you have another type of computer on the bike.

Curious about what the letters signify in harley davidson motorcycle model FLSTN/FLSTNI. I assume STN = SofTail Nostalgic, what is FL & I?


F means it has overhead valve "big v-twin"
L means wide front tire
ST-Softail like you thought
N-Nostalgia like you thought
I means fuel injected (they used to offer with a carb)

hope that helps
