    Hi everyone hope all is well.I would like to pick your brains and see if you can help me get mobile again. I have a 2001 classic with fuel inj. and the idle has gone up to 2300 rpm. Now we are truckers and been idle for about 3 years.I know a little about the old carb. models but this fuel inj. has me a little baffled. help. thanks in advance

    A wide open stuck Idle air control motor (IAC) may do it. A good size vacuum leak maybe. Probe with some propane. If nothing, look at IAC motor.

    Others may tell you more.

    2001 high Idle

    Hey thanks the other day for all the helpful advice.I was at my witts end.I looked over the manual and noticed that a spring was missing. went to harley to see if they had the spring they said they could order me some kinda of rebuild kit but no spring. So now I have a foreign spring on my classic and its running fine.I aslo asked harley about the manual for fuel injection and they said its 60 bucks maybe in a few weeks but not right now.Need job, too old for this be glad when pennsion comes in October, can't wait.

    Barbosa, welcome to the HDTalking forum and cheers to your upcoming retirement. Good job sorting out the mystery of the "--missing spring"? May want to look into getting a copy of the CD, if you do not mind scrolling thru a PDF using eBook rather than pages of a thick manual...
