Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLSTN- FLSTNI Softail Deluxe
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.

Try inside the tach on the connector. But also remove your speed sensor on the transmission and clean it. They pick up metal chips from the trans and short out. Also, HD had a bunch of bad speedos around your year. They replaced them for free. Doubtful they will replace yours at this late date. You might end up buying a new speedo.

Since the speeometer is electronic and gets it's "pulses" from the transmission, it stops whenever the transmission stops turning inside. Now, if one got into a situation in which he applied the rear brake hard enough to lock the rear wheel thereby causing the engine to stall, the speeometer would stop at that moment even if the bike didn't. This is my opinion.

I'm really not sure what you're asking. There is no gasket in the intake valve. Now, if you are talking about the intake manifold gasket at the heads, you need to look at the plates that are on the intake manifold themselves.
There is a plate on each runner of the intake. These plates are marked with a "R" for Rear and a "F" for Front. One side of them is flat with the other side having a "counterbore". The "counterbore" goes towards the head with the gasket sliding up on the manifold so that it's shape fits up into the counterbore. When the plates are tighened down, they flatten out the gaskets and form a seal against the head and the manifold.
Now, you must align the manifold when you put it on. Do not just put it on and tighten it up. Install the manifold but leave the bolts loose. Then install a new carburetor seal on the carb end of the manifold and install the carburetor into the manifold. Bolt the backing plate of the air filter to the carburetor and the heads. No need to connect the fuel line or cables because you are simply aligning the manifold at this point. With the carb and rear plate of the air filter bolted in it's place, then tighten the manifold bolts. This insures that you will not have a vacuum leak at the carburetor seal by aligning the manifold with the carburetor and air filter. I hope this answers your question. Good Luck and ride carefully.
