Personally, I'd stay away from anything that had EFI or an ECM on it. 1998 or earlier Evolution engine. Those you can still work on yourself. If you get one of these later models, every time you have a small problem, it off to the dealer and that's at least one hour minimum shop charge which right now is about $75 in most areas. But then, I'm an "old school biker" that works on my own bike. The newer Harley's are the same as the late model cars. You can't do a thing on them anymore and you've got to go to a dealer. The 1995 to 1999 Evolution powered bikes are the most reliable they ever built. If you can find one with low miles and do a top end job on it, install a nice low end high torque cam, and you've got a nice ride and not a lot of money in it. Right now with the way the economy is, it's a buyer's market. Deals are everywhere.

Good Luck

Water in EFI system 2009 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic

You might try mixing some SeaFoam fuel additive with the fuel. That might work or therewise, you're going to have to drain the tank. How you do that on an EFI equipped bike, I have no idea as I work only on carb equipped bikes. Good Luck!

What year fenders and EFI gas tank are interchangable with my 1999 roadking?

all year flt fenders, fuel tank must be for a road king,97-99. 2000 M.Y. the fuel pump changed. The tank will physically fit but the pump assembly inside is different.I believe the frames changed in 97 so 96 earlier wont bolt up.
