Default Idle speed high

I have a 2006 Hammer. My resting idle speed has been right around 1,000. I cleaned out the throttle body's and now it's running around 1,500 at a stop. Is there a throttle adjustment screw on the 2006? Or could there be some other problem?

don't be leave you can adjust idle. Dealer can reset your TPS and that should lower your idle

Check for vacuum leaks on tb boot and ports for California emissions. If all ok. 06 has idle adjustment screw on left side of tb. Back it down a bit if you still have a small amount of free play on your fast idle. That will keep you going until a factory TPS reset can be done.

Should not reset with power interruption as it should shut off every time bike turns off. Now if it does not have a good enough ground or power source while running, that could cause idle issues.

I'd take this advice....use a little spritz of WD40, the idle will change when you find the leak.

This being a 2006 bike, I bet that rubber throttle body adapter is rotten and cracked. Pull the cheese wedge off on the right side of the bike, visually locate the rubber throttle body adapter. With the bike cold, start the bike and spray carb cleaner around the throttle body adapter and see if the idle rpm changes or if the bike kills. I like to do this with the straw attached to the carb can so that you have a better idea of where the leak is, if there is one. If spraying carb cleaner on the adapter changes the idle, that adapter is cracked and needs to be replaced.
BTW: I wouldn't do this on a HOT bike because carb cleaner is highly flammable.

Otherwise, you probably just need to adjust the throttle idle lever or the throttle cable. Both are adjustable on these bikes.

If it turns out to be a cracked throttle body adapter, this thread may help:
