    Hello need a bit of help, just bought a 2006 Roadking police with 1,970 miles, I know the guy did not ride much, well its all stock no mods... I have a poping on decel...
    I checked exhaust no leaks...
    Checked intake no leaks....

    Could it be its just real lean from factory?

    I am stunned, please help... Thanks.

    how many of the 1,970 miles have you put on since getting it? might just need some fuel "cleaner" such as Sea-foam , MM or such and a little high octane fuel to "get the dust of the throttle", 2006 with that few miles. And - if you havent already - drain all the fluids and put in some fresh.

    I would drain the gas tank, refill with 93+ octane and half can seafoam. Run it hard, lots of different throtle openings, run it up against the rev limiter, cruise, part throttle, the works. A couple of tanks of good fresh gas with cleaner will fix it right up.
    Check the date of manufacture, if its between 9/05 and 2/06 it probably still has 8 degree injectors. It wouldn't hurt to upgrade to the 25 degree injector HD switched to after 2/12.

    My thinking is follow the suggestions here then I would also say get a simple TFI or gen3 from Dobecks... TOO Lean problem gone.

    Look into the TFI,Gen3, as you get a forum discount from Dobecks 50$ and free shipping for being a HDT member.

    Wasn't the Police bike a 95" not an 88" ?

    Needs Fuel... I like the injector change also.

    All of the above are easy to do checks and modifications yourself.

    Help is here.:bigsmiley23:

    The TFI worked for me. My bike was notorious for decel popping. Now the bike runs cooler, better, & sounds good too! :s
    It was money well spent IMO and you do get a HDTalking discount. They did it for me, they'll do it for you too! Good deal.

    hold up here , slow down guys ---- Hey Rider63 ,, you have had it roughly a month & put 1200 miles on it. So when you bought it , it only had a est. 770 miles right? with you putting 1200 mls on it , Im sure youve gone thru a couple tanks of hi oct. fuel right? is this decel pop been there since you got the bike or has it just started doing so , is it getting worse or staying the same??? Does it seem to have the "umpf" when you get into the throttle , any hesitations at all???? Sorry - if you can give a tad bit more info.

    Hello, no it was under 2000 miles when I bought it, I have on it 3,200 miles now...

    I spoke to the seller yesterday and he told me the poping started last year after he let it seat for 8 months only chargeing the battery...

    This weekend I will try the Seafoam, put a full tank of 93 octain and 5 ounces of Seafoam and hit the road.

    And yes my friend has a Roadking and he told me mine feels sluggish compared to his (a 2005), so maybe the Seafoam is what the Doctor ordered...

    Thanks for all the help guys... I am very glad to be on this Forum...

    Ride safe, and GOD Bless our troops and Country....

    There's no way to add fuel with the stock ECM. I fixed my decel popping by adding 5% fuel to the O% throttle column from 750-1200RPM and that fixed mine (Power Commander 5). If you can find a gently used fuel manager in the classifieds I would snatch it up. Your plug coloring will reflect the increased fuel from the stock representation.
