SOURCE: Installing new handlebars, where are wire

One the earlier models, the handlebar connectors were down under the tank. But, Harley changes electrics every year so you never know. All I can tell you is "follow the wire".

2003 is single fire. If you buy anew tach, it will come with instalation instructions. With a little common sence, it's pretty easy.

SOURCE: 2003 harley davison superglide fxd questions concerning oil

The engine takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. Now, always check the oil after filling. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of transmission lube. It too has a dipstick on it.

The primary holds 36-42 ounces of oil. Do not overfill this either because too much oil will make your clutch seem like it's dragging. You will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good luck
steve

SOURCE: Installation of Sissy Bar

the bolts on the rear fender area hold the sissy bar as well as the rear fender. I had the same difficulties. you will have to buy long bolts that will fit through the sissy bar and through the chrome and then through the fender. I found this out the hard way when I removed the sissy bar and did not replace the bolts. the rear fender was close to falling off the bike.
the bolts are found in diy stores. the only restriction is to make sure the bolt does not go into the area of the rear wheel so that it might come in contact with the tyre.

Having a hard time getting the rear turn signals loose enough to get the sissy bar docking side plates to slide into place on my 95 Lowrider. The bolts are very hard to loosen. I've gotten them...


Your turn signals should have hollow bolts with wiring running thru them correct?? Now remember that you have to take the other bolts off or at least loosen them, on the rear strut. So you should have covers on the struts, then the struts themselves (frame) then your rear fenders.

Usually I have to manipulate the fender and kind of bend it inward as i work in the sissy bar. Use cloth though on the fender so you dont scratch the paint. Dynas can be a little challenging, good luck.

Location of fill valve for air shocks


The fill valve is right above the lid of the left side hard bag, about as far back as the very end of the passenger portion of the seat. Looks like a standard valve stem. If you have a detachable sissy bar you have to remove it first. The rear shocks should have no more that 40 or so psi in them. Solo I have mine at 0-8 psi. Fully loaded I'll run 20 - 25 psi.

How do remove the seat? I've removed the bolt attached to the rear fender. The book says to pull the seat back to release the hook from the frame? The seat doesn't want to pull back toward the rear.


If you have a sissy bar on the bike, you'll have to lift the rear of the seat a bit to get the clearance necessary for the seat to slide to the rear. If that doesn't work, take the sissy bar off by removing the two small bolts on either side of the sissy bar side plates. With the sissy bar off, the seat should come off easily.

Good Luck

How to change low sissy bar on a 2000 FLSTC


Look on either side of the sissy bar down near the base. There are usually two bolts on each side. Remove these bolts and the sissy bar pulls out of the side plates which stay on the bike.

Good Luck

Sissy Bar Install on a 2008 Screaming Eagle Dyna


Been a while since I've done one of these, but I believe you have to take the shocks loose at the fender struts and drop them down and out of the way. The signals should go back on in the same place, no relocation. On a couple of these I've had to get longer bolts for the signals, but it may not be required, so keep this in mind. And, yes, I know, it would be nice if HD would include the bolts or at least tell you about the possibility of needing longer bolts, I've said this to myself many times in the past.
