SOURCE: removal of front wheel

First remove some air from the tire so that it will be able to make through the forks once its loose. standing in front of bike facing it. on your left side of wheel is a bolt at the axel that should be a large allen/hex head bolt loosen it to take pressure off of axel. You will see a large hole on that same side of axel. I usually put a large screw driver through this to give me leverage for turning the nut on the other side of the wheel which is your next step. There may also be a cotter pin on one of the sides, Im thinking the right side but I'm drawing a blank since the bike isnt sitting in front of me right now. If you see one of course take it off and use a new one when you replace it. Before going much further you will need to remove the brake caliper. It will be heald on by two bolts that are probably dull gray in color and are obviously holding it to the fork. Dont let the brake hang once its loose. Prop it up so there isnt tension on the brake line. Go back to taking the wheel off. Use one hand to hold the screwdriver or other leverage device that you've stuck through the hole on the left side of the wheel and the other to turn the nut on the right side of the wheel. Take notice of washers and spacers and where they go. Laying down a piece of cardboard as a tray and using a sharpie to label what things are and where they go has always been helpful to me. Once the nut is loose you may need to do a little "hammering" to pursuade the axel to come out towards your right. I have hammering in quotations because you'll want to avoid actual metal on metal hammering. Just some slight tapping should get you going. And dont lose sight of those spacers and washers. They can role to the most inconvenient places. Once the axel is on its way you should be able to grab its end and pull the axel on out then pull the wheel forward and down through the forks.

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

SOURCE: how do i remove the rear wheel on a 2005 harley

you should not have to remove shocks dont do that to remove wheel loosen the back section of your exhaust the nut that holds it is the only one you need to take off the back section of your exhaust now loosen the tension screws in front of the axle nut on both sides this creates slack on your belt or chain drive take off big nut on axle use tools on both sides at same time to keep axle from spinning take weight off of wheel just enough to allow wheel to be wiggled and slide the axle out you can tapp on axle just not on threads if you have to beat on it place nut on axle loosly and hit only to free it up it should slide out after a few taps the brakes are on a spacer style format on axle rememmeber with spacer goes on which side they are different in size to accomadate wheel spacing to brakes and belt alignment when wheel drops remove drive type belt or chain wheel should roll out of place you may need to lift bike higher with lift or jack to clear fender on roll out ta dah you have your wheel off to put back on reverse this order i change all my own tires have done all types for friends i hope this helped you

Removal of rear wheel bearings on my 2005 harley fatboy

Purchase your own Harley Davidson Wheel Bearing Replacement Tool. It takes it of and secures the new one flat. Always remember to reinsert the spacer between the new bearings. I purchased my HD Tool on E-Bay for 65.00. I will post a video so you can see how easy it is. This is the same video I viewed before I did mine. Good luck...

How to change bearings in rear wheel 1972 harley davidson shovel head

Remove the rear wheel leaving the brake drum on the bike. There is one wheel bearing in the wheel. Drive it out with a hammer. The other two are in the brake drum, drive them out with a hammer as well. These are sealed beaings.

good luck,
