I, also, have a 2008 Road King Classic.

Do you get a check engine light when this happens?

On mine, I DO get a light, and it goes into "limp mode", where the power is VERY restricted.

Turns out (in my case) there's a service bulletin about corrosion on the plug connector where the wiring goes into the throttle body.

On mine, I disconnect/reconnect about 3 times, and that seems to remove (by scrapping) the corrosion, and all is good again.

bro' kumusta,

madaming pwedeng posibilidad yan, poor compression, poor spark, poor combustion. Check mo muna yung carburador niya.. dapat ang ikot ng fuel-air mixture e 2.5 turns out. Tanggalin mo yung air box at linisan yung filter nito.. tro mo din patagbuhin panandalian na walang air filter.. kasi pwede barado na ang intake nito. Check mo spark plug at siguraduhing malinis pa ito. Panigurado e palitan mo nalang ng bago.. check mo din na dumadaloy na maayos yung fuel papunta carburador.

kung ayaw mga to, pa-compression check mo para masuri ito ng maigi baka kasi maluwag na yung piston rings or piston nito.

sana nakatulong,

parate naman kung sakaling natulungan ka nito
salamat

i don't know. battery terminals may not be tight. battery may not be fully charged. rela [if any] may have loose wire connectors. positive wire to relay or starter may be dirty or loose. your owner's manual may have information.

Is the idle speed set too low? If so, adjust it, using the idle speed adjusting screw, to the correct idle speed (900 RPM). If that's not the problem, then check for air leaks between the carburetors and the engine by spraying WD-40 around the intake manifolds with the engine running. If there is an intake leak, the engine RPM will change briefly when the WD-40 is sprayed near it.
Aside from that, there are two other things that can cause your engine to die when it should be idling: the idle speed mixture adjustment, or low cylinder compression. Of course, if it was idling fine before, and the idle mixture adjustment hasn't been changed, then do a compression check, first. To idle properly, each cylinder's compression needs to be at least 140 psi.

Hi, Henry moisture, condensation, rain, or bike washing can make the bike run sluggish, not able to rev, and misfire. Older bikes, engine configuration, and exposed electrical components are at the front of the line for acting up. During the diagnostic procedure spray Electrical Contact Cleaner on corroded wire connectors/pins/sockets etc. and apply a liberal amount of "DIELECTRIC" grease to the mating harness/wire connectors. WD40 works great for eliminating suspect areas in your quest to find the real offending gremlin.
For additional insurance you can spray a High Temp Clear Coat on the most vulnerable areas it will work like Scotch Guard does on fabric. Fabricate a rubber or plastic splash guard to deflect water coming off the front wheel getting to the front cylinder spark plugs. The design should be adequate for its purpose with the least amount of airflow restriction to cool the cylinders. The usual suspects are:
1. Air filter soaked with water.
2. Water in the fuel system gas tank and carburetors.
3. Wet ignition coil packs.
4. Spark plug boots wore out or loose allowing water to enter.
5. Spark plug cables old and cracked check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Spark plug wells filled up and drain holes clogged.
7. Water in a wire harness that has exposed open ends and have a sharp bend or crimp allowing the liquid to form its own pool of potential threats to chaffed wiring.
8. Sensitive fuel tuners and downloaded ECM remaps may get confused with the abnormal cylinder temperature difference in a V-4 engine configuration.
9. Fuel injected bikes need to have the electrical connectors removed and sprayed with contact cleaner then blown dry and checked for continuity with a test light or multimeter, then treated with Dielectric Grease.
If your bike will not run right or even start after going through the checklist, despair not, letting it sit for a couple of days in a warm environment is like an eviction notice for the Gremlins and then your bike will be back to its old self. You can speed up this process by using forced air to dry out electrical connections.
