Bottom of oil tank to right/outside feed on pump. Inside is return line to top of tank where filter cap is. If you ran a cooler than run this line to the cooler and back to the tank. Above the pump is the large vent line. It goes to a tee fitting and than to the top of the tank and to the back/bottom of the primary. The small line goes to the back /center of the primary. It\'s the chain oiler.

SOURCE: i need a oil line routing diagram so i can connect

I can send you a drawing but not via this forum, you'll have to contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net . I'll send you a drawing of the slightly later model but if you have a 1979 model bike, the drawing will show you what you need. A best as I can remember, the '79 model did not have an oil filter on it. Harley did offer a "kit" with which to add the filter but it didn't come stock. Still contact me off forum and I'll scan the pic and send it to you.

Ride Safe.

SOURCE: vaccum line routing on the carburetors of a 1985 yamaha xj700

There's only two , on the Ca. model , sitting on the bike second cylinder from left, the synching port goes to the petcock -on the carb joint nearest the block- It would be the only boot without a black cap n a spring clamp .And (it'll be a long hose) goes to the emissions can behind the air box on the right from the carb itself.(it has a plastic cover over it) Anything behind the carbs (between 1n2 then 3n4 ) is over flow tubes to the bottom of the frame.

Little tip -The only time the oil cooler will cool is when the bike is moving and when the bike is moving you don't need the oil cooler. This is from a factory harley tech.

SOURCE: my gs500f is back firing through the CARB. the

Lean mixtures burn very slowly, at times slowly enough to continue burning through the power and exhaust stroke, causing a backfire when the intake valve opens, and that flame gets a shot at the new mixture charge.

In normal operation, as the engine slows, the fuel delivery from the main circuit falls off, and the idle circuit is supposed to take over. If the idle circuit flows insufficiently, that becomes a transition to fuel starvation.

You can try pointing an unlit propane torch into the inlet air, and see if you can get closer to an idle while supplying a supplementary fuel source. You will need to do this in a way that gets propane to both carburetor inlets, maybe rigging a Y with vacuum hoses and electrical tape...

This started with work on the carburetors, so the fuel system would be the most suspect. That, and the fact that it will run at higher RPM would seem to rule out fuel delivery.

I was looking around at photos while developing this answer (needed to know whether this was a twin or a 4-cylinder), and one resource said the idle speed should be 1,200. I don't know if that's right, but maybe 1,000 RPM is too slow for this motor to keep it together. (I do doubt that, though.)

When I wrote that last sentence, I started to second guess myself, thinking "What if the fuel shutoff(s) is/are vacuum operated, and as the bike approaches idle there is insufficient vacuum to hold it/them open?" But the I rejected that, because there is even less vacuum at cranking speeds, yet the bike starts.

SOURCE: 1972 shovelhead harley-davidson engine rebuilt

Thirty over is nothing. I just finished a rebuilt on a 1970 model and we went 0.050" over on it. It was already at 30 over and the pistons scored.

Anyway, don't use one of these cheap Chinese made bendix's. Get an ACCEL. They may be made in China but they're better. You can't get good Shovelhead parts anymore.

Now, before you put the outer primary back on, use your hand and operate the fork that shifts the bendix into engagement with the ring gear. Does it engage like it's supposed to. You'll probably have to turn it just a bit. Now, do it again with the outer primary on. Does it still engage smoothly?

Now, here's the cause of most starter grinding problems on a shovel. The starter, ring gear, and outer primary are all out of alignment. The starter housing, the one with the big gear in it is supposed to have alignment pins in it as well as the outer primary. These pins are to ensure that the starter drive and the ring gear are properly aligned with each other. With the starter and outer primary on, you should be able to pull on the plunger of the solenoid and the starter drive engage fully and smoothly. Also don't forget the large brass washer. This keeps the drive from going too far.

If you're worried about low voltage, take the battery to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test the battery. If it drops below 10 volts, buy a new battery.

Suzuki 750 Katana Hoses?


Hi, Alexander always check your service manual for proper routing, PVC type valves, and vent lines allow the following components to breathe freely:
1. Gas caps.
2. Gas tanks.
3. Carburetors.
4. Lead acid batteries.
5. Evap canisters.
6. Engine crankcases.
7. Rocker boxes.
8. Transmissions.
Numbers 2-3-4 have vent lines that are routed directly to the ground usually 2" below the lowest part of the frame and loosely secured with stanchions/stand-offs or tie wraps. These lines have minimal curves and their ends do not attach to anything "WARNING" these lines should be inspected at every maintenance service for end clogging or closure pinching or kinking or missing altogether.
Failure to properly inspect and maintain vent lines may lead to:
1. Gas tank implosion.
2. Improper float levels.
3. Batteries exploding.
4. Blown crankcase and transmission seals.
5. Air cleaner oil saturation.

I need a diagram for the fuel lines on 1997 kawasaki vulcan 750. i took the fuel lines loose and i don't know where they go


Hi.

There is no "diagram" showing the whole routing of fuel lines in the bike. You need to use different diagrams in Fuel System section of the service manual. Fuel system section starts at page 15 in service manual, but what you really need starts at page 40. I have posted fuel service manual at the end of comment.

There is one forum where users discussed the routing. One user has colored the diagram from service manual to indicate lines routing. Here the diagram:

ginko_149.jpg

Here the forum, I quote:

"The red and yellow are the fuel lines that go to the petcock. The green one you left unmarked also goes to the petcock. The line with a question mark is a vacuum line that connects to a part in front of the battery along with the larger lines to the cylinders."

Here the service manual in PDF format.

Regards.

2008 dyna fxdl 96 ci oil& ****** drain plugs


The oil and transmission drain plugs are on the bottom of the transmission. The engine oil tank is there. The center plug is the engine oil and the plug on the side is the transmission drain plug, I think. I don't work on the newer bikes and I'm not sure about which plug is which. I think I'm right though. I work on the older bikes (shovelheads and such) that the dealers will no longer work.

Good Luck

I need routing diagrams for both gas & oil lines for a 1990 HD XLH883H Sportster


Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a drawing for the oil lines. The fuel line simply runs from the petcock to the carb between the cylinders. Nothing special about it's routing.

93 Fatboy oil leaking from vent tube at air filter. oil level is good, not over filled, oil will cover the oil tank on a 100 mile trip


On your '93 model, the crankcase vent is down low on the engine behind the oil pump and it runs up to the air filter through a metal and rubber hose. I don't know how many miles you have on your engine but it you're getting any blow-by on the rings, this will increase the pressure in the crankcase. Most people simply re-route the crankcase breather underneath the bike and plug the hole on the backside of the air filter. Replace the metal line with a rubber hose and put a small filter in the end of the hose. Route the hose back behind the transmission and attach it to the transmission mounting plate just in front of the rear wheel.

This was the way the older Shovelheads were done from the factory for years until the EPA made them start running the crankcase vented air through the engine. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather" system and moved the crankcase vents to the heads. Still, the oil mist in the vented air builds up in the air cleaner on these models as well.

Good Luck
