Rear cylinder heating on 07 Roadkings is not that common, more so on E Glides and others with full fairings with lowers.
HD offers a computer remap but it's a joke and a half a**'ed joke at that.
the simple cure is a Oil cooler and FULL synthetic 20W50 oil (not SYN3) changed with filter every 3000- 4000 miles.
Excellent advice given above and I would add a TFI to the mix to richen up the fuel a bit. It works well on any year , not just the new ones and runs better too.I'ts a plug and play device and easy install with minimal knowledge and tools. Not the usual computer work and programming as with other units. I have one on my 07 and have put them on all my FI bikes. It's a good solution for any motor with FI that you are not going to do major mods on .
PS. The 05 motors had valve seal problems in earlier production dates that were covered by the HD for replacement. Try to find out some history on your 05 to see if this was done already. The dealer service bulletin was issued August 10, 2005

I have had a Road king classic from march 2000, I do all my own servicing and maintenance on it. It hase never let me down I fitted a oil cooler in 2003 when I rode it to Portugal, have also toured france and Spain on it. I have recently had it triked.
When you get a minute could you post some more pics of that trike, it looks awesome!

The Road King puts you in the class with the BIG BOYS besides being a sweet ride it has enough room to ride double without a problem.
I bought 2008 Classic , I have 540 break-in miles on so far.
Completely satisfied with my ride.
