Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic

1 Answer

1998 road king fuel injected seems like after 150-200 miles the bike does not want to idle and kills. I can get it it to start but have to keep the throttle up to keep it running even when shifting. Black smoke comes out untill I start getting it to go. It will stay running without a problem again even for hundreds of miles until I have to downshift or eventually have to stop.

Flooding for some reason. Fuel injectors may be defective or too much fuel presssure if the regulator is not working properly.

SOURCE: 4 yr old fuel in 96 road king with fuel injection

Hi, Take the hose off at the petcock. There is a wire clamp on hose from the valve that comes from the tank. The petcock valve is the one that has the on/off/reserve. If you have a fuel canister with a spout, turn the petcock to the off position, take off the clamp and hose and put the canister spout up to the fitting and turn the petcock to the reserve position to drain the fuel. If it was not previously in the off position you will need to disassemble and clean the carbs and change the fuel filter. Good Luck to you, this should answer the question you asked, if you need additional help please ask.

SOURCE: fuel pump?

the fuel pump for your 2000 fuel injected road king is located in the fuel tank. you will have to remove the speedometer housing, by first removing the seat, then remove the one small screw near the seat that holds the speedometer housing in place, also remove the small screw at the front of the speedometer housing and lift the housing off the tank and disconnect the wiring that goes to the back of the speedometer. there is a large oval shaped gold in appearance plate on top of the fuel tank. this plate is what the fuel pump is mounted to.

SOURCE: when riding 2005 fuel injected harley road king,

Sounds like the intake manifold is leaking. The area where the leak usually happens, are those two rubber sleeves that go from the heads, (Cylinder heads) to the intake. Sometimes the clamp/s loosen up. Sometimes these rubber sleeves deteriorate, and cracks form.

This makes the engine backfire, pop, and idle fast.

The added air at the wrong time cause a backfire, when you let off the throttle. The added air causes the engine to pop, because the exhaust valve has sucked up some cold air.
The engine idles fast, because more air is being introduced, and not metered by the injection system.

(The exhaust valve thing. Exhaust valves are supposed to open, and let exhaust out right? Well there is a thing called Valve Overlap.
The Exhaust valve hasn't closed all the way yet, and the Intake valve is opening.
The 4 stroke engine, (Of which a Harley is), has these four strokes.
1.Intake Stroke. Fuel/air is sucked in.
2.Compression Stroke. The piston comes up and squeezes the fuel/air mixture.
3.Combustion Stroke. The spark plug lights the fuel/air mixture off.
4.Exhaust Stroke. The spent gases are expelled out.

Your Road King has one camshaft. There are four cam lobes on it.
Intake, Exhaust, Intake, Exhaust.

If you had the camshaft in your hand, and had the gear end facing you, look down the camshaft. You will see those egg shaped cam lobes. You will notice that No.1 cylinder Intake lobe is facing to the left.
No.1 Exhaust is facing to the right.

If you put a degree wheel on the gear end of the camshaft, and had the No.1 Exhaust lobe ramp nose facing straight up, you would see that it's about 110 degrees, before the Intake lobe ramp at .050 lift, comes into play. (The roller, of your roller lifter has raised the Exhaust valve up .050 inch) There is about 55 degrees before the Exhaust valve hasn't quite shut.
This is okay for normal running. Introduce a vacuum leak, and the surge of extra cold air, makes it pop.

Solution? I suggest checking to see if the clamps on those rubber sleeves are loose. You can also spray WD-40 towards the ends of each rubber sleeve, when the engine is idling, and see if it speeds up. Means, one or more, of those rubber sleeves has deteriorated.

SOURCE: Idel adjustment on fuel injected road king. Not

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.

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

So the problem only occurs at idle. For some reason the injection is allowing too much fuel at idle. That explains the black smoke. At highway speed the engine needs the fuel but at idle it should have a lot less fuel so it loads up and blows black.

You may have one injector that doesn't seat fully so it dumps too much gas at idle. Try some brand of injection cleaner you can trust in your bike and see if that fixes it. If not, you better get it in to the dealer because it will be dumping contaminants into the engine oil.

2003 HD Road King - starts fine, idle normal. Once it is warm, idles at 2000 rpm. Does not come back down, even after riding for an hour or two. Only idles normal when cold. Help??


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.

I have a 99 road king 1550 fuel injected. on the way on a trip the engine lost power and shut down . cranked but no start. Took it to harley dealer where they found that the computer was fried, front...


Interesting story but other than the low idle, you never said how the bike was running. I must assume that it's running alright other than your concern that it may be running lean due to your fuel mileage. You're mileage is about nornal for an engine as large as yours. My 1340 Evo gets about 45 miles per gallon. If you had a vacuum leak on the manifold seals, you would notice it mostly at idle speeds. The idle speed would probably vary considerably while sitting still. It may even cause one cylinder to miss. As long as your bike seems to be running good, ride it and enjoy it.

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.

High idle below 72 degress


If this is still a problem. I had a similar issues with my 06 Road King. Mine ran extremly hot and the idle was horrible too. On cold mornings five miles in I had to get off the bike because it felt like I was going to burn up. Two years dealing with Harley dealerships, who were completely worthless, and nothing. I even got to the point I told them to come pick the bike up I was not making anymore payments. Well that did not work.

I called a chopper shop, PeteG's in Longwood FL, told them what was happening. I had the carb drilled out, a new breather put on, and pipes (of course those were what the hell). Anyway, since the work was done, I don't run hot, my idle is normal, and fuel consumption has improved by almost six miles per gal. I just hit 43 mp/g this week. Since the repairs were comlpeted about three weeks ago I've put almost 1500 miles on the bike no problems yet.

One note... Do not deal with Harley if your bike is out of warranty. Ask around and find the names of some independant shops. Ask them. The benefit is they usually will give you a straight answer and two they cost a lot less.

Hope this helps.
