Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHT - FLHTI Electra Glide Standard
I recently changed my primary fluid at 10,000 miles. shortly after it's been getting harder to shift. i put one qt of drag specialty in it. i pulled the derby cover of and the smaller cover off too. i can't see the fluid looking into the derby hole due to the inner parts look to be lower than normal and close to the front blocking my view. i can see thru the smaller cover and the fluid comes about 1/2" from the bottom lip while standing the bike straight up and level. i've had 2 other bikes the same exact yr and bike. seems like i could see into the derby hole better to ck the fluid. what can you tell me ? my email is email@example.com thank you !

Sounds like the coil. Had the same problem with a Sportster, changed coil. As coil ages it breaks down, heat expands internal connections and coil fails. When cooled, coil contracts and the contacts come back together. This COULD be your problem, not sure. Do you have a buddy that will let you try his coil for a test?

No ... The primary has its own fluid system. U check the level by removing the derby cover with the bike level and filling the primary with chain case fluid til it comes to the bottom edge of the diaphragm spring. U can see it with a flashlight

non return type blockage in the brake master cylinder. Requires stripping the master and replacing valve. A big bleed may help to clear the fault. Fluid is leaving the reservoir and unable to return. Fluid only flowing one way. See your dealer if you are not confident in re-building the master cylinder.

You've got the right idea. You need to pull the primary cover and take a look at the shifter pawl. As long as all external shifter parts are moving as they should, the problem is probably in the shifting mechanism inside the primary. You may have to pull the clutch assembly off to get to it.

Could be the throwout bearing is worn out. Are you backing off the cable adjustments all the way before trying to adjust the clutch? 62K is not a lot of miles on a clutch, but I don't know the type rider you are.
Try this----back off the cable adjustments all the way, then unlock the nut inside the derby cover and try the adjuster. It should run in then get tension. If not, look at throwout bearing first, before the complete clutch.
