2000 ultra classic

Whenever i start the bike, it takes aprox 20 minutes before it idles down. just spent 160.00 replacing a 5 dollar seal, and it did not repair the problem. Even if I ride for a while, if i turn the bike off, and restart it, it takes a while to idle down.

    I have a 1998 wide glide with a new S&S carb. The bike has been running fine up until the other week. The engine will not stay at a good idle and even dies off worse when you lean the bike over on its stand. I have ajusted the carb. looked for intake leaks with WD and it still is not right. My next step is look for trash in the carb. HELP

Really need more info on bike, not much to go on. if it is fuel injected, the first culprit i would check is the temperature sensor. on start up, you need a richer mix and thus higher idle. if a carb bike, i would first check ignition timing because if something is mis-skewing and the advance is too much, it will idle higher

Check you battery terminal connections. Can't think of any other reason that the rear light should be fluttering. If battery is tight then trace through your circuit breakers with a test light.

Front brakes failed


Is this using stock brake lines?  You could have kinked the metal tubing and possibly broke it when you straigthened it out.  I would suggest getting someone to help who knows what they're doing on brakes... pretty dangerous if you make a mistake.  With that said, the system *is* pretty darn simple.  The master cylinder is a pump and the caliper is the actuator.  If you have the reservoir filled with the correct fluid and the system has been bled properly, meaning no air in the lines, then unless it is leaking there is no reason you won't have brakes, unless the seals in the master are blown out.  
If you need to start over... get a master cylinder seal kit, a caliper seal kit, and a bottle of the correct fluid from the dealer.  Both kits are around $20 and since your bike is 10 years old it wouldnt hurt to replace the seals.  Rebuild the master and the caliper according to the service manual instructions.  Also make sure you fully inspect the brake line to make sure you didnt kink it.

Oil Pressure


Very common on h-d big twins for the last 75 years or so. These bikes have a dry sump oil system which means you have 2 oil pumps, feed and scavenge. The feed pump is very puny compaired to the scavenge, so at idle (especially when hot) it carries only a couple of pounds of pressure and that is all you need. The scavenge pump has a much greater capacity because if it can't keep up the crancase will start filling up and the crank will start slogging through the oil, killing performance. These bikes are equipped with hydraulic valve lifters which will start clanking loudly if you have a real oil pressure problem. Enjoy your ride and don't sweat it.

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.

If you're talking about dieing at an idle, you can increase the idle slightly to keep this from happening. Do not increase it too much, Harley's are not designed for high idle.
