Changing out all primary drive seals and gaskets on '06 Road King

Looking for tips when changing out all primary seals and gaskets on '06 Road King Custom. Had an '90 Softail Custom with jack shaft leak. Removed the primary case and change all seals/gaskets without the expensive HD tools that are recomended. Used impact to tighten engine sproket and jamed a soft, plastic handle screw driver in the drive to keep it from turning under torque. The soft plastic screw driver did not score or damage anything. I plan on doing the same with the '06. The primary is very similar to the '90 so I'm figuring it should work. Any helpful tips or suggestions I need to watch for with the '06 is appreciated. Thanx.

No real problem to solve. Just looking for tips or critical points to watch out for while working on the Road King as compared to the same project I did with my Softail. Just trying to save $500+ in unnecessary tools.

Replace drive belt 2003 harley road king


this is a pretty big job, the whole primary needs to come off, clutches, compensating sprocket, and inner primary. you need to unbolt the swingarm, remove the left side isolator, unbolt left shock, carefull sneak the belt between the trans housing and swingarm. If you wanna tackle this yourself. your are gonna need a manual, there are alot of specs to follow. you really need to look closely at the 3 transmission seals, any wetness, i would change them, i usually change them all anyway. you need to change the inner primary seal and starter shaft seal while you're in there.

Change a drive belt


to change the final drive belt on your Road King, you must pull the entire primary off. The outer primary cover, the clutch and primary chain, the inner primary, and the starter must come off. Then, you have to remove the rear wheel, remove the shocks, and pull the swing arm out as well. It's a major job.

Good Luck

Base gaskets leaks, rocker box gasket leaks. Final drive belt wear Final drive belt sprocket wear Loose/worn steering head bearings Check spokes if wheels have them Check under seat for damage to frame/surrounding area from leaky battery Check all turn signals/horn/brake lights, high/low beam, tires Test drive bike Check VIN for modification Check VIN with local police to make sure not stolen Make sure title is clear and transferable

Have devolped a small leak on 2005 road king. drips from bottom of primary cover at drain bolt. running down from above. back of primary cover has slight oil dampness around transmission and starter shaft...


Spray it off at the car wash to remove all the oil , then spray Right Guard (Yes, that Right Guard) on the area of the leak. It will show up, but you may not be able to see exactly where. There are a couple spots where it can leak. The jackshaft oil seal, as you said, transmission output shaft (clutch shaft) on the trans itself, the inner primary seal where the trans shaft runs thru, the engine sprocket shaft oil seal, inner primary O-ring, the bolts that hold the inner primary to the engine/trans, the primary chaincase gasket and the drain plug. Hopefully when you get it apart, you will see which seal is leaking. If not, replace them all. Still want to fix the leak? LOL

I have an oil leak from where the stator wires come out of the primary cover. Is there a way other than changing the whole stator to fix it?


you have some seals that are leaking from around the crankshaft the stator is supposed to be sealed from the oil you wont have to change the stator just the crank seal

Oil leak at inner primary


Most inner primary leaks come from the alternator o-ring the best thing to do is put on a new one and put clear silicone on the primary and the engine case.
