Question about Harley Davidson FLHTC - FLHTCI Electra Glide classic Motorcycles

My radio has started turning off (total loss of power) when the bike gets warmed up and is above 1000rpm. If I allow it to idle, it turns back on, but as soon as i give it gas and are above 1000rpm, it loses all power.

I'm having a few problems with my Gilera the bike starts up fine and doesn't cut out or anything just stays at 1000rpm but if you go to say 6000rpm the bike bogs out and then goes back to 1000rpm


Probably a carb issue. It sounds as though the idle jet is clear but the main jet is blocked. So your bike starts and idles, but as soon as you ask for more fuel, not enough gets through the main jet and the bike bogs down. Buy a manual and a can of carb cleaner, take the carb off, remove the bowl, remove the jets and leave them soaking in carb cleaner overnight. You might need to use some fine wire to poke through the jets if they are very blocked..

How do I adjust the idle speed on my 96 thundercat. I read that this model should be above 1000rpm nearer 1200rpm.. Currently just above 750 rpm and bike not happy at this.. Everything else seeming fine...


As you sit on the bike you will find on the right hand side there is a black wheel the size of a 5p piece which is just above the crankcase. You can get your fingers in between the fairing without having to remove any plastics(which is a bit of a pain on this bike!(just forward of the oil filler cap).Once the engine is good and warm(about 5 mins) rotate it clockwise(I think) and it will increase your idle speed to just under 1200 rpm which is just about right. The "wheel" is attached to the carbs by a cable. Good luck. Ollie

IDLE ENGINE SPEED RACING WHEN STOPPED


The idle speed is controlled via a servo motor and the engine management computer. It will idle fast when the engine is cold and first started.

If the idle speed is much higher than 1000RPM when the engine is warm, I would check for sticking throttle cables especially if you have added bar backs or bar risers. Check the throttle twist grip to make sure it is free and snaps back when released. These sometimes get sticky especially if the bike was dropped or dirt has accumulated under the throttle tube. Usually a high idle on a K1200RS is caused by some mechanical problem with the throttle or cruise control (if your bike has cruise)

Hope this helps

1998 roadking idles to fast after it warms up.


Is it fuel injected or carbureted? If the bike is fuel injected it will idle fast until the engine warms up...if it continues to idle fast after about 10-15 seconds it could have a faulty sensor.

If carbureted, after you push the choke in does it still idle fast? If so, there is an idle adjust screw on the top of the carburetor just behind the air cleaner.

Do you have a tach on the bike? If you do, then the normal warmed-up idle should be 1000rpm.

!991 FZR 1000 Idle normal when cool, High when hot(2-3,000)


Sounds like you need the carbs cleaned and synchronized, then the idle set once the bike warms up. May also have a cracked intake boot, or a vacuum line off.

Won't idle down after it warms up


after the bike has warmed up, then reset the idle to approx 1000rpm. then see what happens when its cold. some bikes are cold blooded and the use of choke is necessary for a bit, at least until it warms up...
