Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXSTD - FXSTDI Deuce
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, this problem is usually cause by the front brake light switch being out of alignment or the button not retracting all the way keeping your brake light on in a closed circuit, depending on your model year. 1996 and earlier models the right handlebar switch housing had to be tight up against the front brake control housing in order for the front brake light switch button to be fully compressed to stop continuity. In 1997 and later models the button was alot shorter and was more of an alignment issue in the switch housing. Rear brake light switches located in the rear brake line TEE can also fail in the closed circuit condition but extremely rare, usually they fail in an open circuit condition where the brake light is not able to activate.

Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.

If it's fuel injected, the dealer will have to set the idle speed for you unless you have another type of computer on the bike.

The clutch is most likey improperly set. What needs to be done is the clutch cover taken off, loose the cable adjuster backed way off and then set the clutch rod first by taking up all the end play and then turning out screw 1/2 turn, hold screw and tighten lock nut. The cable can now be adjusted so there is about 1/2" free play at the end of the lever

Ok, I'm not very familiar with fuel injected models because I don't work on them but they should have a throttle cable like anything else. In the cable somewhere (usually close to the throttle grip) it has an adjuster. There should be two cables, a throttle cable and an idle cable. The throttle cable is the cable towards the front of the bike at the throttle mechanism as it pulls the throttle open. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable to take most but not all the slack out of the cable. You must have a bit of slack in each cable for the throttle to work freely. Do the same with the idle cable nearest the rear of the bike.
Once finished, with the engine off, twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position and release it. It should snap shut. If it doesn't it's not adjusted correctly. Readjust the throttle cable and idle cable until the throttle operates properly. You must get this right.
Failure to properly adjust the throttle cables could result in the loss of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death. If you are not sure of how to do this, find someone who knows how to do it. You don't want your throttle sticking on you.

SOURCE: How much oil does a
To the best of my knowledge, your Duece takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. And, your primary takes 38-44 ounces of oil.
Your oil tank has a dipstick in it. Fill the oil tank until the level is just above the lower line with the bike on the stand. The lower line is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill.
The transmission is the same way, On the right side clutch release cover, there's a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. It too has a dipstick marked the same way the oil tank dipstick is marked. Check the oil in the transmission with the bike standing straight up.
In the primary, you fill the oil level to where it just touches the lowest part of the clutch spring. The outer clutch housing is bright aluminum. Inside this is a round dark colored piece of metal. This is the clutch spring. Fill or check the oil with the bike standing straight up. Do not overfill as it will make your clutch drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.
