I have a 07 street glide , after riding for a while it sometimes idles low and ruff and stalls unless I feather the throttle! I've had it at the dealer and they can't find a issue and no codes

If I'm not mistaken, that year had a GM-made TBI with a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). If there is a TPS at the throttle butterfly, just replace it, as the problem you are describing sounds like a flaky TPS.

Your sucking in air on the induction circuit somewhere. Probably a split in a pipe around the carbs. This leans out te mixture and raises the revs.

SOURCE: 07 street glide won't idle properly.one minute

i would also check at the the throttle body first that sounds like your problem. if that is not the problem it might be the fuel injectors i had almost the same issue. in 2006 and some of 2007 they claim they fixed the problem before 2007 bikes came out but thats not true. the angle that the fuel injectors sat was wrong they had to change the angle. how i fixed mine i installed screaming eagle injectors that sat at a 45 degree angle and never had a problem since. harley also had to pay for parts and labor. there is also a update or recall on 2007 harleys for a control module not sure wich one but call your dealer and ask them about it i know the module had something to do with the fuel or air i think.

SOURCE: I have a 07 street glide and it some times won't idle at a stop sign ! Dealer just dyno it and said everything is right ! What could it be ? Thank you

dirty or incorrectly gapped plugs, idle set too slow. If carburetter, dirty jets, if fuel injection, bad adjustment or dirty injectors.

If you dealer won't help you, change dealers.

Idle drops off


Hi Kenguidas, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50 Good luck

Ruff idle harley 2003 efi


If it is EFI (electroniclly fuel injected) then the problem lies there or maybe the spark plug gap is not set to the specifications of the bike

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.
