SOURCE: oil change procedure 2000 road king

the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission in your RK. There are two drain plugs. The plug towards the front left of the pan is the oil drain plug. The other one is for the transmission.

Drain the oil, replace the filter, refill with three quarts of oil and you're ready to go. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT", and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

Don't forget to service the transmission and the primary at their recommended intervals.

Good Luck

SOURCE: can't start cold with choke, have to half throttle

Check visually to see if needle jet is moving up with slide when twisting the throttle. Another way to check is to remove top carb. cap, remove slide, check that the needle jet is attached. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 HD Road King -

If you bike is equipped with a carburetor, the idle stop screw is located at the top of the carb on the right side. Counterclockwise turn slows the idle speed.

If you bike is fuel injected, a dealer or shop will have to set the idle speed electronically.

SOURCE: Throttle not snapping back to idle position on

You need to take the entire throttle control assembly off the handlebars and disconnect the cables from the carburetor. Check each cable for free movement. If you have a frayed cable, you will never get it to work correctly so check the cables. Now when you go to put the assembly back together make sure you put some thin grease on the handlebar and inside the throttle sleeve before you slide it up on the handlebar. Put white lithium grease in the area where the cables connect to the throttle sleeve the bolt the two halves of the switch housing together. Slide the switch and throttle assembly all the way up on the handlebars and then back it off about an 1/8" or so. This insures that the handlebar is not rubbing on the inside of the end of the throttle grip.

Good Luck
Steve

Where is idle screw on 05 road king


Hi Anonymous, the idle set screw is on the right side of carburetor it's a brass screw with a spring behind it. Also there is a cam stop screw where the ends of the throttle cables hook into.

2001 FLHRI sequencial fuel injection rev's at around 2000 RPM when hot any clues?


You have to adjust the idle cold,and hot. Warm the bbike up,and with the air filter housing off,look at the bottom right? of the backing plate,and there will be a small hole. There is a small torx bit screw in that hole that you will need to turn to adjust the hot idle. Dont quote me,but i think its a t20 or t25 torx bit.

High idle on HD, 08 Road King Classic


For fast RPM's at start that doesn't go down shortly after starting.
1) Put bike in neutral
2) Push to ON the first switch to right of starter switch next to throttle.
3) turn dial on gas tank to the On position for 5 seconds then off wait 2-3 seconds and repeat 3 more times total of 4 times
4)then Turn everything to off positions
5) wait a few seconds and start normally

I found that if you shut down the bike with rpms up a bit, it will start the next time with a faster than normal idle.

If you do this technique when the bike is cold, it will run a little fast til it warms up. Don't ask me why this works.

2002 road king classic keeps stalling when i come to a stop and there is some backfire as well . when i first start up the bike it will idle .


If your bike is fuel injected, there is nothing you can do. You must take it to a shop and let them set the idle speed. If it's equipped with a carb, remove the air cleaner cover and look at the square top on the carb. Just to the right of that cover is a screw, the throttle stop screw. Turn this screw clockwise to increase the idle speed. It should idle at about 1000 RPM.

Good Luck

My 2000 road king fuel injection starts right up runs a few moments and dies and will start back up but will not run long, it just started this yesterday


this could be a couple of different things first thing is to make sure your fuel pump pressures up the system,turn on ignition and listen for your fuel pump to come on,second is to your ignition on and off at least two or three more times this will reset your idle air contol.(make sure you are not on the throttle when you shut the bike off) If this does not clear up the problem you could have a bad senser or loose connection. good luck

Start up idle to low 2001 road kin g injected


This is controlled by the computer. There is a cold fast idle setting that must be set by a dealer with the proper instrumentation to do the job.

Idel adjustment on fuel injected road king. Not on a carburated system.


Idle adjustment is through the ECM and factory set. If you are having idle issues there are potentionally a number of reasons why*. If you are just wanting to change your idle speed then you would need to purchase an interface such as the Screamin Eagle Race Tuner.

*IAC - Idle Air Control motor
Throttle Position Sensor
Injector malfunction
Intake Air Temperature Sensor

Just to name a few.
