you may have to take it to the dealer and have them hook it up to the computer im a harley tech and usally when that happens its the tps sensor getting a false readind bc of an insufficent mapping due to adding on pipes filter or power commanders etc.they may have to get you a new tps sensor or may be able to give you another stock recalibration for the ecm due to the weather

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

SOURCE: my suzuki dl 1000 k5 hiccups at 2200--4300 rpm

have seen this many times on different bikes. the manufacturers have to get their bikes to pass emission (pollution) tests, and noise tests. these tests are usually done at the same rpm, therefore the manufacturers program the ecu to make the bike run weak on fuel at that rpm. causes what we call a 'flat spot'

can think of no other reason or it would do it throughout the rev range. don't forget that after a distance on neutral throttle, the fuelling will be very weak as the bike doesn't need much then anyway. usual answer is to get ecu re programmed, or fit dynojet power commander, a plug in electrical box, will sort out all the rubbish and make it run properly. do a google search for dynojet and read their stuff.

You cannot, unless you have the Screamin Eagle Race Tuner (SERT) or you take it to the dealer (at about $80/hr.) Sorry I don't have better news, hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2005 dyna wide glide...fuel injected...have engine

This could be a result from a couple of different things however if your vibration is at idol and has and keeps getting worse it is proably one of the motor mounts. These can very difficult to see so if you remove one there is a thin lip above the rubber and metal bracket and if that is not there then the mount is no good

What is the oil pressure at idle on 2001 harley electra glide

30-38 psi (207-262 kN/m squared) at 2000 rpm and normal operating temperature of 230 degrees F (110degrees C)

At idle it can be very much lower (10 to 15 is not unusual and can even be lower than that sometimes) as volume rather than pressure is the key in lubrication of the rolling bearings which these engine utilize rather than plain bearings. This is why there is no published idle oil pressure.

My 1996 ultra classic has a hiccup at 3k rpm. Could it be anything other than air-fuel?

well it sounds like its air/fuel There is a transfer spot in the carburetor where it changes from the LOW speed mixture to the HIGH speed mixture but if you have to much air , it will burp and also if you dont have enough fuel, it will also burp.You can either try changing the idle air screw or putting in 1/2 size bigger pilot jets. good luck

Idle speed around 2000 rpm, 1st ride of the year , had this issue. I followed my Manual info and adjusted Cold and Hot adjustments. When restarted the idle was close to normal, but after a minute or 2...

Adjust the idle speed ONLY when the engine is at full operating temp. It should be idled at about 1000 RPM. It will probably be too low when cold and you may have to use the throttle control to keep the engine running until it gets completely warmed up. On the carburetor equipped engines, you cannot adjust the bike where it will idle cold and not be too high when it gets hot. The only way you can get this is with fuel injected models.

Good Luck

Hesitates on take off and sometimes during low speed in town traffic

If it's a carb model, try increasing the size of the pilot (low speed) jet to a 42 or 45. And pull the sheet metal plug out of the idle mix screw well so you can adjust the idle mixture. Start at about 2 turns out from all the way in. A Yost power tube or similar kit will have all the instructions and parts you need. If it's a fuel injected model...good luck. Harley has problems with their FI. You can get the dealership to re-map the ignition and fuel parameters, but it's kinda hit or miss.
