Default Engine Temperature Sensor replacement

I have a 1999 fuel injected Road King and am constantly having problems with the idle speeds.I am going to replace the engine temperature sensor and would like to know if I have to remove the fuel tank to replace it and how hard is it to get to?

Doing this requires that you at least take the tank loose and raise it up. The gas fittings also must be removed (be careful of the gas spillage), and the coil should be moved as well. The sensor is removed with a deep socket. Should be no more than a 30 minute job.
Good luck

OK -- I just did this on my '02 Ultra. It was a 5 minute job of removinf horn, disconecting the plug and using a deep 3/4" socket to remove and replace the sensor. There were no clearance issues and nothing to move out of the way but the horn. I know your's is a '99, so if the location is the same you're golden. -Tom

Ditto on just removing the horn. It's a very straight-forward job. What makes you think it's the temp sensor that's the problem?

I have been having this problem for a couple of monthes.I set the idle and then after a couple of days,either the hot idle starts running very fast or the cold idle starts running so slow the bike shakes.I have had a local shop set it and it runs great for about a week then starts acting up.This is my daily driver and the bike has about 37,000 miles on it.Also,I live in Phoenix and the heat is a problem.I've read a couple of posts here and some of the members say this has helped.

bobalou1999, when you find out what your idle problem is please let me know. After 14+ months of taking mine back to the dealer it still will not idle the same all the time. I,m about to put a bounty on mine for the first person that can fix it where it will idle the same 2 days in a row.. ANT TAKERS???????@ 2 sets induction module seals. sert,stage1, dino run,air idle motor and still not fixed.It idles perfectly when cold, but when it,s warm, all bets are off.

Have you tried using the voltage method to set the idle? If not, or if you're not familiar with it,let me know and I'll share it. Also. on my 2000, even after using the above method, I hadthe same symptoms you describe, only mine got progressively worse. I finally replaced the TPS and that fixed it.

Sounds like it's in a different location on the Twinkie. For the Evo, it's in the center of the front head, requiring the above.
