OxyClean in the gas tank?

I recently met a Stortster rider who told me he uses OxyClean in his gas tank. He says it Oxygenates the gas helps keep the carburator, plugs and everything else clean, and stops that anoying sputtering,popping thing that all Sportsters do. Has anyone ever heard of this(or done it)?My husband thought it sounded crazy,but just thought I'd ask.

Maybe being that he was a "Stortster rider" that's why he used it? I wouldn't put anything like that in the tank. No telling what results you may get when it contacts the parts in the system. Possible he was pulling your leg?

Where is FXDL dyna low rider gas filter located ?

It doesn't have a filter, it does have a screen and it's located in the fuel tank. If your bike is carb equipped and has a petcock, take the petcock out and the screen comes with it.

If your bike is fuel injected, you have to take the pump out of the tank.

Good luck

I have a 2006 FXDLI that I have a question on.

Best as I can remember, the Low Rider comes with a 3 3/4 gallon fuel tank doesn't it? You should be getting between 45 - 50 mpg depending on your driving style. Since your bike if fuel injected, you'll need to take it to a dealer or an independent shop to get the problem analyzed.

Good Luck

Just wondering if you know how many kilometers you

Every rider and ride is different. It depends on the rider and the type of riding you are doing. High speed riding reduces your range. If it needs tuned up you get fewer kms per tank. If you are hammering it you will get fewer miles, etc.

I have a 2002 V-Star Classic. I recently had new

Why did you have new carbs installed? If the new ones have bigger throats, there might not be sufficient air velocity to pick up fuel when accelerated. The starter problem sounds like the over-running clutch on the starter shaft has oil on it or the chain from the starter to the engine is off/broken. The whine is due to the starter being unloaded and trying to self-destruct from over-revving.

never heard of this. chances are you will find a weak spot in the tank and blow through it. To me this sounds like a very dangerous endeavor.
