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

2001 hd ultra classic after running for a while and idling at a light volt meter pegs at 16 volts and other gages go erratic,


sounds like your voltage regulator has gone bad, voltage spikes like that can damage a lot of the electronics on the bike. Would not operate it until you fix the issue.

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

Had a simuliar problem, Bike would have a total shutdown a High Temps/Low Speeds/High RPMs. Everything would reset itself after appox 2 minutes. Everything would shutdown Electric and engine.
2 Harley dealers spent 75 hours diagnosing it, dealer could not reproduce it. Last repair was to replace battery cables. Seems to have fixed it. Have ridden 15oo miles since repair. Problem reacurred once last time I rode. Again complete shutdown bike restored after 2 minutes. Did not happen again the rest of the day over 200 miles

When I start my Harley-Davidson the RPMs jump up and stick. What is wrong?


May be normal. When cold ,the bike should idle fast for a few minutes. If started hot, will idle fast for a few seconds. Cold idle should not exceed approximately 1800 rpm.

Miss firing


There could be several casues. Vacuum leak, especially at the manifold, bad/fouled plugs or wires, water or dirt in the fuel system and even a low battery can cause misses. I would try spraying a little starting fluid on the manifold seals to see if your engine speeds up. If it does, its the seals
