    You mention a Road King but your avatar area says street glide???

    Same engine anyway, could be the TPS or the temp sensor on the front head causing it. Let the dealer diagnose it after checking the values on both. That's what the warranty is for.

    The reason I mentioned the TPS is because opening the throttle on a start will change the parameters that are needed for a proper start.
