The light is comming on because of low oil pressure when you first start. It takes a little while for the oil to circulate thru the system, and reach the pressure sending switch.

Verfy your oil level is correct.

Engine Rev goes too high on Starting the engine


Arul,
It sounds like you installed a new carburetor and the problem remains. You may have a vacuum leak between the carb and the engine allowing in too much air and causing a lean fuel/air condition leading to high revs. Check your vacuum lines for cracks, check your carb holder for cracks or gaps, listen closely for an air leak. Replace any cracked lines or carb holder with new, or a temporary fix may be done by sealing the carb holder with a silicone adhesive to stop the leak.

Not Accelerating beyond 40-50 kmph


NOT clutch issue - if it was the clutch the rpms would rev out but bike would go no faster.
Sounds like carburetor may be partially plugged up, main jet.
Or air filter needs replacing.

Engine light goes out after starting and idling. When riding speedometer is eradic and engine light comes on. Bike running fine


I would remove the speed sensor on the transmission and clean it..Just wipe it of. It's probably loaded with metal shavings. If cleaning doesn't work then you'll probably have to replace it. I own a 2000 FLHTC and I have to remove and clean mine at least 2 times a year. As for the engine light being on. The engine light should shut off within 5 to 8 seconds of the bike being started. You need to run the diagnostics through your speedometer. If you don't know how then you need to buy a service manual for the bike so you can do the diags and look up the codes.

Hi Anonymous, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

Check engine light comes on for about six seconds after starting, how do you check the codes


If it doesn't stay on, you are probably OK. When the bike is started the computer runs a diagnostic check, then the light goes out.

I got a 1990 Suzuki GSX750F Katana, the problem is that when I pull the choke out and start it up it will idle, now if I take right off it rides great, but when I come to a stop or hold the clutch long...


It still sounds like it still running rich. If it doesn't have any performance mods like aftermarket exhaust it wont like the stage 3 kit. The stage 3 kit should be install if it has high performance exhaust and k&n pods instead of an airbox and filter. Or the floats may be stuck or improperly adjusted.
