I've been using mine quite a bit lately and have not have any problems at all.It works exactly as I expect it to, and has never shut off unexpectedly.zoo said:I'm getting cruise control on my 08 FLHR. Anyone have any comments on how the HD cruise control is working out with the new throttle?
Jeff N said:Has anybody had problems with there cruise control shutting off. While on a ride it happened to me twice. Pretty much scaring the crap out of me.
I have not gone harley yet just want to hear some feedback for some ammo if any.
One thing we've found with a little bit older bikes is the speed sensor getting dirty or "fuzzy". Pull the sensor out, on top of the transmission (one allen bolt), and see if it's gone "fuzzy" on ya. It's magnetic and picks up all kinds of metal shavings from within the transmission. Gets clogged up and can not read properly. If your speed drops, because the sensor can't read, the CC will shut off.Jeff N said:Has anybody had problems with there cruise control shutting off. While on a ride it happened to me twice.

I just finished 2300 miles on my Ultra using CC about 80% of the time.zoo said:I'm getting cruise control on my 08 FLHR. Anyone have any comments on how the HD cruise control is working out with the new throttle?
Yes, I thnk that's it but that's shorter than the book.Black Magic said:Is this the procedure of which you speak?
1.) With the Ignition off, push the right cruise switch to RESUME and hold it there.
2.) Push the left cruise on/off button to ON.
3.) Turn on the ignition switch and crank the engine. The GREEN ENGAGED light will illuminate for three seconds and go out. When it goes out, release the RESUME switch.
4.) With the bike still running, push the right cruise switch to RESUME again and hold it while the unit pulls in the slack in the cable. When the engine revs up a bit and the green light goes out again, release the RESUME button and turn the ignition switch off.
Running the cable lash procedure will not affect the idle cable being out of adjustment. The cable lash initialization only adjusts the cable running from the cruise module to the throttle valve on the carb or EFI.newultraclassic said:You need to do a cable lash initialization process as shown in the service manual. Either do it yourself or go to the dealer. It's a full page in the manual. (2004 manual in my case, section 8, page 101) It will cure your problem. Your idle cable, the one with the cruise control switch, is out of adjustment.
I agree with the first part, yes the roll off switch is part of the idle cable. I believe your second sentence is incorrect- The cable lash initialization has nothing to do with the idle or throttle cables. There are 3 cables on the CC system, Throttle, Idle, and the cable that runs from the CC module to the Throttle Body. The cable from the CC module is the only thing being adjusted during the cable lash initialization.newultraclassic said:The Cruise Control Roll-Off Switch IS part of the idle cable. Therefore, when the cable lash initialization procedure is done correctly the idle cable will be set properly
