Question about Harley Davidson XL 883C Sportster Custom Motorcycles
You didn't say what year or model bike you have or whether it's fuel injected or carburetor equipped. If it's equipped with a carburetor this condition is usually caused by warming the engine too long with the enricher on. The enricher provides a very rich mixture to start the engine with. I've seen people start their bikes and let them run for ten minutes with the enricher on. They foul a lot of plugs to. Use the enricher to start the bike but as quickly as you can get the bike to run without it, turn it off and use the throttle grip to keep the engine running until it will idle by itself. I use the throttle lock underneath the throttle housing.
