Re: side stand
But no part number associated with it. I was thinking possibly that the side stand on a scarabeo was from previous years and not applicable to my 08.
Would anyone have any information on this? It would be great to just drop a side stand lean the bike and walk away.... rather than step off balance the bike find proper footing on the center stand lever and stomp.
,I've been wanting the side stand as well (Aprilia Lateral Stand part# 853489), but according to AF1, it is not available yet.

If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !
A simple way around this is to get either :- A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or A strong hammer or mallet or A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends
Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle
All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand
On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike
Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain
SIMPLE EFFECTIVE NO NEED TO CARRY A PADDOCK STAND IN YOUR RUCKSACK

I hope this helps (if so give good feedback please)
Is your side stand down when you shift it into gear? If you have a side stand safety switch your motor cycle is designed to shut down if you put it in gear with out raising the side stand. It is set up that way so you wont be able to drive down the road with your side stand down , take a left turn, and crash your bike.
I didn't think Harley made the FXR anymore. I thought they discontinued that bike in 1999 or so. But, just in case, the FXR's oil tank was under the seat. The drain was located at the bottom of the tank on the left side of the bike under the triangluar shaped frame insert.
Now if the bike is and FXD Dyna Super Glide, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. Under the transmission, there are two drain plugs, one is located near the center of the oil pan and this is the transmission drain plug. The engine oil drain plug is located towards the left front of the oil pan. Drain the oil with the bike on the side stand.
To determine the exact model of your bike, search the Internet for the "Harley alphabet" You should be able to find a site that helps you decode your serial number (VIN#) to determine the exact model of your bike.
Yes , it may require some light lubricating at around the stand but first you will need to clean up throughly around the stand fittings better to use WD40 and thn some mineral oil as lubricant.
Not bad too to check the spring of its tension!
Hope this helps!
1. when you're putting it in gear, is the kick stand up or down. if down, most modern day bikes have a kick stand safety switch which will not allow you to put the bike in gear with the side stand down. this little relay may have failed. its usually located near the kick stand.
2. clutch disks may be stuck together. it happens on my old bikes from sitting too long (over a winter). when i pop it into first gear after i start it w/ clutch lever pulled, it will buck forward and die. i have to repeat a few times to get them unstuck.
Offhand, I would suspect an airleak on the airfilter box, most likely the seal between the air filter bottom housing to the mouth of the carb. Might as well check for a vacuum leak on the rubber coupling from the carb to the intake manifolds. Pls check for craks on the coupling wall. It would also be worth your time to check the mating of the rubber coupling to the carb as well as the clamps.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
