SOURCE: picture wiring diagram for 2003 harley fatboy

May I suggest a trip to your local library. Cycle repair books should be in 646 stacks of reference.
Otherwise you can Google for 2003 Clymer Service manuals on the internet.
I think Clymer had electrical diagrams in their books. I doubt that any except the HD service book would have anything about the physical location of the harness, but the pictures in the other books would help you.

SOURCE: how do i change the

Get the bike up off the ground, just slightly at first. Then take the nut off the axle. If your axle is inserted into the swing arm from the left side, start to withdraw the axle. If it's inserted from the right side, you'll probably have to remove the muffler(s). As you pull the axle out, remove and mark any spacers that come out. Mark where they go and in what direction they were facing. If you have difficulty getting the axle out, you may have to loosen the wheel adjusters on either side of the swingarm.

Once you have the axle out and the wheel sitting on the ground, start raising the bike more. As you come up with it, work the drive belt off of the pulley. You may have to remove the lower belt guard to do this. Do not twist the belt or squeeze it in a radius sharper than 4 inches or you will damage the belt. When you get the bike raised enough so that the rotor is clear of the caliper, start leaning eh wheel over and working it out from under the bike.

Seems like there are three spacers on a Fat Boy. Two are very short and go into the bearing seals on either side of the wheel, and one is a longer spacer that goes on the belt side. The spacer on the other side is the brake caliper bracket. Make yourself a drawing. Invaribly, you'll look at a spacer and wonder "did it go here or here". Drawings never lie.

When you put the axle back in, insert it from the left side of the bike. That way, next time you won't have to take the exhaust system apart. To adjust the belt, first get both wheel adjusters to the same length. The turn them each the same amount at a time moving the wheel backwards in increments. Once you get the belt tensioned correctly, the two adjusters should be the same lenght. This gets the rear wheel aligned correctly in the swingarm.

Check the operation of your rear brakes before you ride the bike. If you start hearing a "chirp" when you shift gears on the bike, your rear belt is too loose.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: How do i change my oil in my 1999 Harley fatboy

From the right side of your bike, look for a large hose coming out of the backside of the oil tank at it's lowest point. Follow the hose down behind the transmission on down to a clip on the lower tube of the frame behind the exhaust pipes. There is a metal plug in the hose. Simply take the hose out of the clip and reroute it below the frame. Remove the plug and the oil tank filler cap and the oil will drain out. Refill with three quarts of 20W50 oil.

Good Luck

When was the last time the fork oil was changed? Has there been any leaks? Loss of oil will cause the forks to go soft.

SOURCE: how to change drive belt

To change the final drive belt on your Fatboy, first disconnect the battery. You have to drain the primary and remove the cover. Take the engine sprocket nut loose and remove the plate in the center of the clutch assembly. Remove the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on. This nut has LEFT HANDED THREADS. Then, remove the starter jackshaft. Go the right side of the bike and remove the exhaust system so that you can remove the starter. Then take the inner primary cover off. You may have to remove the front belt drive pulley. Since you're in this far, you may as well remove the pulley if you have the proper tools and replace all the transmission seals behind it. Then, remove the rear wheel and the swingarm. Do not bend the new final drive belt into a radius any tighter than about four inches or you may damage the cords inside the belt. You will need a torque wrench that is capable of applying at least 150 foot pounds of torque to the engine sprocket nut and torqe 60-80 pounds in the LEFT HANDED DIRECTION for the clutch assembly. The front belt drive pulley torques to 150-165 foot pounds as is also LEFT HANDED THREADS and you'll need a "belt pulley locking device" to hold it while you take the large nut off and put it back on. If you plan on doing this job, I would advise the purchase of a service manual as sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

Good Luck
Steve

Doesn't the Fatboy from wheel have only ONE disc?

So once you bolt the rear disc on, where are you going to bolt the belt drive pulley on the other side?

Final Belt Drive on HARLEY DAVIDSON


Belts = quite, durable, less cost to replace.
Chain = noisy, last longer, messy oil spots on floor, good ones cost $400.00 or more, have to keep adjusted, hard to break. Im a chain man myself.
