If it's a carburetor equipped model, this is normal. The engine will not come to full operating temperature in only a few miles and it will idle low. Once the engine reaches full temp, if it still idles too low, there is a screw on the carb at the top right that you set the idle speed with. If your bike is fuel injected, you'll probably have to take it to a shop to have the idle set.

Good Luck

There could be a number of things going on here. First check your oil level if it is lower than normal you could have a sumping issue going on here. Next is to pull your air filter off so you can see your injectors, turn the ignition on and off 5 or 6 times to make sure your injectors are not leaking. While you have the air filter off look inside the throttle body with the trottle plate open and see if the IAC pintle is moving in and out when you turn the ignition on and off.This only controls cold ilde. If all is good you will have to reset the TPS.

If your bike is fuel injected, this is typical. What is happening is the fast idle is keeping your engine running until you blip the trottle. When you do this, the fast idle relaeses the idle speed control. Once the engine gets to full operating temp, the idle speed is correct.

Good Luck

03 dyna glide won't idle


Check the throttle stop. Typically its a screw that can vibrate outa place.
Carb? drop the float bowl and be sure there's nothing clogging the idle jet.
Third is the ignition components.
The Library should have motorcycle repair manuals in the 646 stacks of reference if you don't have the service book yet.

Harley Davidson street glide idles low and sometimes dies at stop signs?


Possible cause is a crack in the fuel filter shell which is installed inside the fuel tank. Harley has a recall for affected models. Post your VIN number or go to your local dealer and ask him is there a recall for your bike. All he will need is the VIN number and any recalls will be done under warranty. By the way, not sure of the year of your bike but it may still be under warranty anyway. Other than that there could be a TP sensor fault.
