Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide

1 Answer

Manual free Hi, I have an electrical query regarding my 2005/6 Harley-Davidson FLHXi street glide. I have removed my entire front fairing along with all gauges, switches and the stereo, an opted for an FLHR set up instead. I am almost finished and as I am barely a beginner on the electrical side of things, I thought I should check before taking her out for her first post-make over voyage. As I have removed so much of the electrical system, I am concerned about my charging system and a possible voltage overload. I have removed all relevant fuses as well as all relevant wires from the interconnect harness. What else would you suggest I remove (or add) to ensure my bikes electrical system doesn't suffer a total failure? Thanks in advance, Matty

If you have not added any extra items using more current that what you had there will be no problem. Add up all the watts that you are using and see if the alternator is exceeding that demand. Make sure that every unit is properly fused to protect the wiring harness.

SOURCE: replace handle bars

Mine had wiring inside the bars as well. Basically I removed the controls from the bars, and removed the 2 bolts holding the handle bars on. I removed the RIGHT side gas tank after draining it. I intended on cutting the wires to the connectors, pulling the wires out of the old handle bars, and pulling them back through the new bars. Note: Mark the black wires very carefully, since there were 5 black wires in the two connectors and they are all unique wires. The colored wires were easy, just match them back up. Several tricks I found on line. Use a string and a bolt to fish a pull line down through the new bars then pull the wire bundle through. This worked great on both left and right wire bundles. I then bolted the new handle bars in place and remounted the controls. I then replaced the shrink tubing up the bundles that hid the actual wires as they came out of the handle bars down to where I cut the connector wires, behind the right side tank. Next I stripped and tinned all the wires I cut (twist and get a little solder to stick on the wires) and stuck little pieces of shrink tubing up or down the wire so after I resoldered the wire I could shrink the insulation back over the splice. I picked up the shrink tubing and some extra wire a home depot. I had a soldering iron, and heat gun so away I went connecting the dots again. Litte tedious but hey. It saved me somewhere between $500 -$700 bucks which is what the harley shop quoted before I started. I tested each function, then reinstalled the gas tank and tightened up all the stuff. Below is the pin out in case you do loose a wire marker, like I did. Good Luck.

SOURCE: how do i remove the rear wheel on a 2005 harley

you should not have to remove shocks dont do that to remove wheel loosen the back section of your exhaust the nut that holds it is the only one you need to take off the back section of your exhaust now loosen the tension screws in front of the axle nut on both sides this creates slack on your belt or chain drive take off big nut on axle use tools on both sides at same time to keep axle from spinning take weight off of wheel just enough to allow wheel to be wiggled and slide the axle out you can tapp on axle just not on threads if you have to beat on it place nut on axle loosly and hit only to free it up it should slide out after a few taps the brakes are on a spacer style format on axle rememmeber with spacer goes on which side they are different in size to accomadate wheel spacing to brakes and belt alignment when wheel drops remove drive type belt or chain wheel should roll out of place you may need to lift bike higher with lift or jack to clear fender on roll out ta dah you have your wheel off to put back on reverse this order i change all my own tires have done all types for friends i hope this helped you

Depends on the production date of the bike, but most likely your audio processor is damaged.
