I have a 1999 Dyna Wideglide with only 36,000 miles on it. I only ride it a couple times a year because I ride my Ultra Classic most of the time. I’ve never had a problem with it until now it wont stay running unless I hold the choke out on the Harley carburetor. If I rev the engine, it runs but runs bad like it has a miss and pops and flames shoot out the pipes. If I let off the gas, it dies. It runs smooth when I’m holding the choke out. What do you think is causing my problem?
You need to clean/rebuild your Harley carburetor and replace intake seals. Your intermediate jet (slow jet) is blocked. Also, make sure you are using fresh fuel and spark plugs.
