If you wanna make sure everything is done to spec, you're gonna do best getting a Shop Manual for your model thru your nearest Harley dealer.
Throttle cable is fairly straight forward, the clutch is gonna be a little tricky. The manuals are easy to follow, and are worth the $50-60.00 price

I need a replacement model number for an exhaust pipe or a muffler. John Deere Model number cv-4918

Hi Mary Beth:
First, Here's a link that will get you lots of sites to check for your part.
Next, I would really recommend that you check with your local small engine repair shop or tool rental supplies store.
All you need to do is bring them the make, model, and serial number and if they don't have the part in stock they will get it for you.

Where is oil drain plug 2005 salftail Deuce

On the earlier Softails, the oil drain was a hose on the right side of the engine way down low behind the chrome cover on the right side of the transmission. The hose is held to the frame under a clip on the frame. There is a plug in the end of the hose. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the plug out.

Any good suggestions for Super Glide Sport bars?

I put pullback Deuce bars, 56330-00, along with pullback risers on my Wide Glide and like the fit. Total pullback is about 11.5". You can also get chrome FXST bars this year, 56154-04, which are close to the Deuce bars. I also put in urethane bushings which do add a little vibration, not bad but I can feel the difference. Deuce: 31" wide, 5" rise, 9" pullback. FXST: 30" wide, 5.75" rise, 9.25" pullback. Reply With Quote
