Make sure you're using the correct weght for the oil for your area where you ride..the wrong oil can make your scooter run hot, so can being out of time..even by a few degrees.

When you check your oil is the bike warm or cold, and is it leaning or do you stand it upright?

    After posting what I thought might help with the oil problem I was thinking, (dangerous for me), and if you run hot all the time you might want to go to a cooler firing plug.

    Maybe that will help.

Have a 1996 road king hooked up a quik disconect windsheild and stereo pod with two speakers what's the best way to hook up stereo straite to battery with fuse or I found a hot wire and a ground behind...

If you use a hot wire and a fuse blows it may affect other components like horn and turn signals are on the orange wire with white tracer. If you are ok with that than that should work just rember it is only 15A fuse I would run new wires.

Low beam light keep blowing fuse , check all wires everything is good . so could it be the high/low switch? also does the road king have a oil tank, if so where is it located

If your light is a sealed beam type light, take your headlight out and check the plug on the backside of the light. Sometimes these give problems.

The oil tank it located on the bottom of the transmission.

I changed the mufflers on my 2006 Road King from stock to Rush mufflers with 2" baffles. I notice that I now have tranny fluid coming from the over flow hose. Difference in back pressure?

The exhaust back pressure won't affect the transmission oil or pressure.
I think it needs investigating and maybe there will be a simple answer.

Cam needle bearing failed on my 2006 Road King. 32K miles on it with regular service (every 5k) with synthetic oil. Anyone else have this issue. Unsure yet as to total damage to engine.

Harley had some major issues with these bearings in 1999-2000 when they first developed the Twin Cam. Since then, I think they've solved the problem. Sounds to me like it was just one of those things that go wrong sometimes.

What gets me is the roller tappets. I've seen them go bad in as little as 13K miles and then I've seen them run for 75K miles. Just one of those things.

If it's just a tappet roller bearing gone on you, they usually don't do a lot of damage. If one of the inner cam bearings in the case went bad, it usually puts a lot of metal in the crankcase.

Good Luck

2002 road king horn wiring were due both leads connect to

I am assuming you mean what are the color of the wires that go to the horn. If so, the yellow/black is positive when the horn button is depressed and the black is ground. The wiring for the horn button is orange/white positive and yellow/black to horn. The orange/white wire gets 12vdc from the acc fuse.

2006 road king engine heat

I don't see how oil can cause an overheating problem. I think the service tech was screwing with the fuel/ignition map when the bike was on the dyno. Is it a F.I. engine? Lean mixture or retarded/over advanced timing will cause this, among other things. The dealer may have to eat the cost of repair if you can prove they caused the problem. An air cooled engine that overheats is gonna self destruct!! Get it checked out NOW.

Changing Oil 05 FLHRI Road King

Same oil filter, you're good to go, not to worry. As for the drain plug, I torque everything that calls for torques. If you don't have a torque wrench, be careful when you put it on, you don't want to over torque your aluminum'll strip it, and wish you had spent the money on the torque wrench. If you plan on doing any work on your bike, get a good torque wrench. It will pay for itself and give you ease of mind knowing the job is done right.
