2004 FXSTI softail standard fuel pump does not come on when I turn key on and when I try to start It has no spark.

Hi Anonymous, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below and good luck.

Are the clutch and break levers adjustable

The levers are not adjustable but the cables are. Your brake cable has a knurled adjustment knob right where it comes out of the lever and your clutch cable has a accordian shaped rubber boot around the adjustment mechanism which you can find if you follow you clutch cable down from the lever.

How do I adjust the clutch cable on my Harley softail

On the clutch lever(handlebar) there is a screw type adjuster- loosen the ring and wind the barrel out by a full turn. If this isn't enough do it again until you have the clurtch biting (dis engaging )at approx half travel. The just takes up the slack caused by the cable stretching over time. I hope This helps.

Need instructions on how to install clutch cables on a 02 fxst

First, you have to drain the oil from the transmission by removing the plug located just below the chrome plated clutch release mechanism on the right side of the transmission. Then, take the bolts out of the clutch release mechanism and pull it away from the transmission. Disconnect the link from the clutch release ramp and the clutch lever at the handlebars. Unscrew the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Reinstall the clutch cable in reverse of the way you took the old one out. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

You need to adjust it so that it just disengages. The book is a good guide but every bike is a little bit different. If it dosen't completely disengage you will trash your trans quick.

Missing shifts cant get fifth gear o5 harley fxst

before getting into the tranny, your clutch most likely needs to be adjusted, check cable, then linkages, then clutch plate adjustment. this is a new bike so its unlikely the tranny.
