    I have a 2008 Roadking it starts right up and was running great then it had no throttle response. It would still idle perfect but no throttle got it home on idle set for 2 days and started and ran perfect. Very confused! Anyone had this problem. HELP

    2008 Road King had a recall for the fuel pump breaking.However when broken it does not correct itself.How about fuel filter?

    Didn't HD have/offer a Re-Program/down-load for the Throttle Problem like OP is having?

    A Parade Mode Problem?

    Seems they did it for free.... OR Not?

    Might just ask a Dealer for information... THEN let us know TOO please...

    Throttle by wire problem. Read Bernie's link thoroughly. There was a common problem of pin fretting in the TBW connectors.
