Hi Jody, the fuses are located behind the chrome box like cover on the left hand side of the bike just below the seat. It has no bolts or screws just pops into rubber gromets, just pull on it and it will pop off. Good luck
I have an '04 Fatboy and work in a dealership. Swapping the oil tank is not fun! There is very little clearance for tools and your hands! If you decide to try it yourself, get a service manual. It will make the job a little easier, with the steps you need to take to remove the tank. Or, get a service manual and read how to do it and decide if you want to tackle this job yourself.
If switch requires replacement, the rear muffler and rear
exhaust pipe must be removed to remove the transmission
sprocket cover. The drive belt and transmission sprocket must
also be removed; there is not enough clearance to allow the
removal of the switch without first removing the transmission
fuse box is located on te left side of bike.under the seat there is a sqaure box with four alen bolts remove them and the cover.then there will be a flat plate with 4 7/16 nuts remove them and the plate then you will fine the fuse box
Sometimes a dirty oil filter will cause lack of oil to the top end at startup.
As soon as the oil warms, it flows better and faster and hence the noise goes away after warm up.
If you need valves adjusted, the motor must be at TDC on compression stroke(both valves closed)
The motor must be cold do not try to adjust the valve clearance on a warm engine.
On TDC, pull the valve covers and check the clearance on the intake and exhaust valves by inserting a feeler gauge under the tappet.
INTAKE should be : .03-05mm
EXHAUST should be .05-.08 mm
Im sure you don't need a valve adjustment. but if you do: Put Engine on TDC
Loosen the locknut with a 9 or 10 mm wrench, stick the feeler gauge under the tappet, and tighten the little square tipped valve adjuster screw clockwise until you feel friction on the feeler guage.
Enough friction that the feeler gauge feels tight but you can still slide it back and forth.
Not carefully tighten the locknut. Check the feeler guage during tightening to make sure it didn't get too tight or too loose. Once you set the clearance, move to the next valve, and repeat the process using the other feeler guage.
Once both are done put the covers back on and your done,
NOTE: You may have to remove seat, gas tank, airbox, and side covers to get to the covers.
On the earlier models, you remove the seat and look next to the frame behind the battery. There's a "jack screw" there. Look on the outside of the frame to the rear of the battery and you'll see two bolts. These are locking bolts. Loosen the two locking bolts and turn the jack screw counterclockwise. This should lower the battery tray.
This is straight out of the Harley service manual. I think a lot of this makes sense once you start pulling things apart but some might cause you a little grief, My advice is get a service manual. Good luck.
1)disconnect negative battery cable. 2)Remove primary cover, (that's the primary chain case cover). 3)Bend tab on lockplate away from head of jackshaft bolt. Hold pinion gear in place and remove jackshaft bolt lockplate and thrust washer. 4)Remove screw and end cover from starter. 5)Remove oil tank to provide clearance for the starter removal. 6)Remove both starter mounting bolts and washers. This includes detaching the engine ground cable 7)remove protective boot. Remove nut with washer. a)remove positive battery cable ring terminal. b)remove circuit breaker wire ring terminal. c)detach solenoid wire. 8)Remove starter from right side of motor.
