SOURCE: Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003

No. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, (put a rag under the brake cylinder at the pedal to catch any fluid pushed out by the next step), depress the pads until they will clear the disc, remove the caliper assembly and replace the pads.

SOURCE: How do you adjust clutch on 2004 Harley Davidson

Get the bike standing as straight up as you can without danger of it falling over. This keeps any oil from running out of the primary. Remove the "derby cover" from the outer primary cover giving you access to the clutch adjuster screw in the center of the clutch pressure plate in the primary.

On the clutch cable, slide the rubber boot up or down to expose the adjuster in the cable. It should be on the down tubes of the frame under the fuel tanks. Loosen the lock nut and screw the cable adjuster in as far as it will go thus shortening the cable.

At the clutch back in the primary cover, you'll see a screw that takes a hex allen wrench with a lock nut on it in the center of the clutch pressure plate. Loosen the lock nut and back it off a bit. Screw the screw inwards until you feel a resistance. You want to adjust this in until you feel a resistance, not to the point to where it starts releasing the clutch. Back the screw back out and do this enough times so that you know you are just going to the point of resistance. Turn the screw inward until you get to the point of resistance and then back the screw out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the nut down.

Now, adjust the clutch cable adjuster out making the cable longer You want to adjust the cable until you have about 1/8 inch freeplay at the clutch lever. Lock the cable lock nut and slide the rubber cover over the adjuster. Test ride the bike. If the clutch does not engage exactly where you want it, use the cable adjuster to fine tune where the clutch engages by lengthing or shortening the cable.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

If your starter is spinning but the engine is not turning over, you over running clutch or Bendix is bad. On the Nippondenso style starter on the late bikes, this starter clutch is inside of the starter. You must pull the starter off and disassemble it to repair the starter. If you can do the job yourself, you can repair the starter and save some money. If you're going to have to pay a mechanic to do the work, simply replace the starter. Any money saved by repairing the starter in this case would be quickly depleted in labor cost.

Good Luck

I am having trouble changing the fork lock on my 2000 heritage soft tail.My ignition switch went bad so I bought a kit from my HD dealer. The kit came with switch, plastic plug, and fork lock. I changed...


Ok, this is what the service manual says.

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.
2. Loosen fork stem bolt. Let fork stem drop approx. 5 inches. (127mm)

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug.
4. Unscrew set screw
5. Insert key in lock and turn partially
6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.
7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.

Good Luck

My deuce has 8in over forks . can i cut these forks succesfully.


Not unless you have the proper tools to rethread the inside of the new "top" of the tubes. You need to purchase new fork tubes and swap them out on your lower sliders.

2000 harley has no spark


Hi Mail4sra, if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 9 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially "GROUND" cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below. Good luck and have nice day.
