If your Fatboy is carb equipped you need to set the idle speed a bit higher. If you're still running the stock carb, remove the air cleaner cover. You'll see a square looking plastic top on the carb. Just to the right (toward the front of the bike) you'll see a screw. This is the idle stop screw. Turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed. Set the idle speed with the engine at full operating temp. It should idle at about 1000 RPM.

If your bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it to a shop to get the idle speed set as it's done electronically.

Good Luck

I have a small 4wheeler that is hard to start and will not idle it will run at speed but if you stop it doesn't idle it dies


Your pilot jet in the carb is plugged up or to small you will have to pull the carb out and clean it if you have a wire brush you can use 1 of the needles off it that will fit in the tiny hole in the pilot jet push it through and then spay carb cleaner through it and the main jet put back together and it should run fine

2006 HD Fatboy FLSTFI minimal throttle position misfire


I would also check for a vacuum leak (intake manifold seal) or a faulty throttle position sensor. Check the intakes first, hold the motor steady above idle and squirt some carb cleaner where the manifold connects to the head. If the motor jumps up in speed right away, you located the leak. A quick shot is all you need to check. Replace both seals at the same time.

The throttle position sensor would need to be checked with a multi-meter. If the sensor (potentiometer) does not change resistance smoothly, it can become "lost". With the engine off, you can disconnect the plug and measure the resistance across the sensor. Get a extra hand to work the throttle from idle to WOT slowly. Watch the resistance change on the meter. If the reading jumps around or goes "open" while moving the throttle, the sensor is faulty.

Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start


Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.
