    Bike (Road King FLHRI) starts hard, but then when you apply the throttle, it dies. Any ideas?

    What year is your Road King, simptons change with type of injection, Delphi or Magnetti Morrelli. Delphi was introduced on softails in 2000 and to the touring models in 2002.

    Start by cleaning out the bleeds in the throttle bore at the 10 and 2 o'clock positions with some carb cleaner.

    Well done (glider)!............Start simple as suggested, then check off to the next possible fix.

    Did you ever get your Road King running right? Inquiring minds want to know.
