SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

SOURCE: how can i remove the battery cover off a 2004

On most Wide Glides you have to remove the seat. Take the small screw out of the back end of the seat that holds it to the fender and lift the rear of the seat up and pull back. If you have a sissy bar on the bike, you may have to remove it as well to get the seat off.

Looking at the battery from the right side of the bike, you'll see two bolts on the frame on the left side of the battery. Loosen these two bolts, do not take them completely out, just loosen them.

Back to the top where the seat was, look behind the battery on the inside of the frame and you'll see a bolt head. Loosening this bolt "lowers" the battery tray, tightening the bolt raises the battery tray. Lower the battery to get the top cover and outside cover out from around the battery.

Whenever you're messing with a battery. Always disconnect the negative side first when taking the battery out. Reconnect the negative side last when putting it back in. This prevents arcs that can cause damage to tools and other parts of the bike and may cause the battery to explode.

How do you remove the starter from a 2001 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic? Thank you for your help. John

To remove the starter, first, disconnect the negative cable from the battery. The drain and remove the outer primary. Remove the bolt that holds the jackshaft on and remove the jackshaft. If you can't get it out, you may have to remover the adjuster plate in the center of the clutch assembly. Loosen the nut and slide the clutch assembly off just slightly. The nut has LEFT HANDED threads in it.

Then, go to the right side of the bike and take off everything that is in the way of the starter, exhaust system, etc. Disconnect the battery cable from the starter and take the two large bolts out of the starter. The starter comes right out.

Need to install a starter in a 2001 dyna wideglide

To remove the starter, first disconnect the battery. Then drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Take the bolt out of the starter jackshaft and remove it. If the coupler comes out with the jackshaft, make sure you mark which way it goes back in. The beveled ends goes towards the starter.

Now, on the other side of the bike, remove the exhaust system and anything else that might be in your way of getting to the starter. Remove the large battery cable from the starter. Take the two large 5/16" bolts out of the starter. The starter will lift out now.

Reinstalling the starter is the exact reverse of these directions.

Good Luck

How do I get the battery cover off of my harley? 2004 Dyna lowrider.

On the earlier models, you remove the seat and look next to the frame behind the battery. There's a "jack screw" there. Look on the outside of the frame to the rear of the battery and you'll see two bolts. These are locking bolts. Loosen the two locking bolts and turn the jack screw counterclockwise. This should lower the battery tray.

How do i remove the battery cover on my 2002 fxdwg to replace new battery?

Remove the seat by taking the bolt out of the rear fender at that rear of the seat. Lift the seat and pull it to the rear to get it off the bike. Just to the rear of the battery box on the right side of the bike, there are two bolts, loosen them. Look behind the battery inside the frame where the seat came off and you'll see a bolt. This is a "jack bolt". Turn this bolt counterclockwise to lower the battery tray, clockwise to raise it. Good Luck.
