Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
SOURCE: How do I tighten and
Remove the "inspection cover" in the center of your primary. Using your finger, gauge the up and travel of the upper run of the primary chain. Set it to between 3/4" and 7/8" with the engine cold. Now, with that being said, unless you're used to what you're doing, you'll probably find it pretty difficult to judge this distance and I know of no way to accurately measure and set the tension without taking the outer primary cover off. But, considering the price of a new gasket for the outer primary cover, I'd be willing to settle for a "close" setting. It's not that critical just don't get it too tight or too loose. Someone makes a tool for doing it but I don't remember who it is. To adjust the tension, loosen the nut just inside the inspection cover and move the shoe up to reduce the tension.
