Er-6f 2006, buzzing noise near fueltank after ride. power off

Could be your fuel pump or your fan is still running.

If it's the fuel pump. You should hear the same sound when you turn the contact on in the morning.
If you can only hear it when the bike is warm and you shut the engine down, it's likely it's the fan spinning. Some Kawa's do it, some don't. My old GPX600R did it. Sometimes it ran (after I shut the bike down) for upto 15 minutes (in hot weather),but my ZZR1400 doesn't do it at all.
My old GPX used to buzz/whistle form the gas cap too, but that shouldn't have anything to do with turning the power on/off.

I left my key in the on position for a weak on my 2006 1800 vtx. My battery is dead should I buy a new battery or can I start this bike and recharge the battery I'd I ride for a few hours

Take the battery out, check your water levels. Give the battery a good deep cycle charge with a charger before you do anything else.

Yes, You could jump it and ride it for a hefty amount of time. However riding a bike with flat batteries can cause issues on the ECU if your bike model has Electronic Fuel Injection.As the EFI relies on a minimum amount of power to run the ECU(computer), at low revs some bikes are stubourn and rev irregularly to try and produce power from the alternator to compensate for the loss in power from the battery which loads down the electronics when it is flat. If you are going to go for a hefty ride to charge the battery, try to ride out on he open road somewhere and avoid high traffic areas as well as areas where you will need to start and stop frequently.

Engine hot

Yes, the R80 has an air cooled engine and may also have a oil cooler to help out with cooling.

First, how do you know the engine is hot beyond what is considered normal? Do you have an oil temp guage? Air leaks around the head and carb connection can make the engine run lean which will contribute to excess heat and poor performance. Check for cracked/hard rubber hose between the carb and headand replace with new if required.

Ride the bike and enjoy it.... just make it a point to shut the engine off if you are stuck in stopped traffic for a period of time longer than 10-15 minutes.

Using a good quality oil in these bikes is also a good idea.

Good Luck!

All the wrf's,250 426 400 etc. WILL heat up and boil if they are left running without being ridden.They need air to be flowing over the radiator.1 minute can be enough to get them hot if the choke is used.You wrote that this happened after an oil change.Did you previously let the bike sit and run?.Check your air filter is clean as this can enrich the fuel/air ratio and create extra heat.Main thing is ,shut the bike down if you are stopping for more then a very short time.To satisfy yourself,take the bike for a slow ride as it is warming up.It can take up to 1 mile to get proper temp. into the entire motor.Hope this helps

It has injectors.Does it display any "C" codes when you crank it up? Did you ever tinker any Fuel Injection modules or sensors? Have you inspected/ or visual checked or try to replaced your fuel filter?

2006 road king engine heat

First of all, you need to install a temp gauge as, even if your motor is running within the red-line (below 300degF, preferably lower than 280) the exhaust can still be several hundred degrees. Even if you add most cooling units that claim to lower engine temperatures, lowering your engine temp as much as 20-40 degrees may lower the exhaust as much as 100 degrees or possibly a little more however, lowering exhaust pipe temps from 5-600 degrees down to 4-500 degrees is going to help your engine but, it is still going to produce a lot of heat radiating to the human body.
Have you tried the heat diverter panels that fit on both sides of the upper frame. they are made to divert heat away from your legs. Also, most of the Harley drill teams use a heat blanket that does the same thing. It works a little better but, it doesn't look quite as nice.
I have a new cooling system that actually does work well and is designed specifically for the conditions you described and it has worked wonderfully. It keeps the engine cool enough that the rear cylinder cut-out never even actuates. It completely eliminated the engine overheating issues. None the less, it is still hot on me even though I never hit the red line anymore. If your interested, I can give you the product name. I'll check this site occasionally to see if you respond.
Heat is one of those negatives that are going to occur when riding on an air-cooled bike with a V-twin as the pipes have to be mounted high under the rider. There are a couple companies that claim to produce internal ceramic pipes that supposedly removes nearly all heat down the pipe and out the rear yet, they will be very costly and I haven't heard any actual feedback from anyone using them so, it would be an expensive investment that may or may not remedy your issue.
Wish there was better news. If I had actual oil and/or engine temps to go on, I could possibly give you a better answer. Good luck..................Erik

Pops and shuts down after riding for awhile, only when you stop

Yours must be one of the last years with a carby? Sounds like a low speed jetting problem. Bike may be running lean on the low speed jetting. Suggest starting by adjusting air mixture screw ( pilot air screw) out to 3-3.5 turns, very gently and by 1/4 turns to richen the idle mixture. Once the needle jet comes into play, she clearly runs nicely, so it's most likely that air screw as MoCo set it lean. Good Luck

2008 Street Glide - Reduced heat rear cylinder shut-down feature

this is explained in the owners manual. 3 conditions have to be met in order for the Engine Idle Temperature Management System to work. 1. speed must be below 2k/hr 2. engine temp high(exactly what i forget) 3. operator must roll back throttle to negative position until "cruise on" light is green. This indicates that the EITMS is on. Vehicles are delivered from the factory with the EITMS disabled. It can be enabled or disabled by the rider using the following procedure; 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and push the engine OFF/RUN switch on the right handlebar to the RUN position(do not start the motorcycle) 2. Push the throttle to the roll-off position and hold 3. After approximately 3 seconds the cruise indicator lamp will either flash green(EITMS enabled) or red (EIMTS disabled) 4. repeat the procedure as needed to enable or disable EITMS

Over heat ?

Normal operating temperature on the bike should not go over 220 degrees F for very long, even in stop & go traffic. Riding down the highway on a hot day you might be 190 F. At start up there won't be a reading until the sensor gets over the minimum which is probably around 100 degrees. You should be able to see it rise after a minute or so of idling. You should hear your fan come on around 190-200 degrees. Your thermostat probably opens at 180, allowing coolant to flow through the radiator and if that does not cool the bike enough the fan comes on next.

I have a 2006 roadking in bumper to bumper traffic engine gets hot and stalles it will start up but will not stay running unless you play with throttle

The injected bikes have a heat management system, that will make them skip a stroke from time to time in an attempt to cool the engine down, the hotter the engine gets the rougher the ride, if heavy traffic is a constant issue and you live in a warm climate area. there are parade fans available which blow air across the cylinders while at low speeds, most police bikes have these as they regularly are used un heavy traffic.
