    07 Wide Glide. First noticed I wasn't getting a fast idle on a cold start. Figured it was just the heat of summer. Then when I would let off the throttle and coast to a stop I could not hear the exhaust cadence which then became stalling unless I held the throttle open a little.

    Dug out an old post from Glider and did the carburetor cleaner in the hole and now the bike runs great again. I didn't really get much gunk out and was amazed at how much oil coating was on the throttle body and the butterfly so I did my best to clean everything up.

    Went ahead and replaced the air cleaner filter as it was looking pretty sad. Thinking about going ahead and getting the K&N. Other than a couple of chrome do dads the bike is 100% stock so that would be my first modification. Whoo Hoo!

    If your going to keep it stock you’ll have to clean the AIC periodically. The leftover oil has a tendency to clog things up, a good carb cleaner works well.
