Start with a fresh set of spark pulgs, adjust your choke or open it a bit as it warms up.

SOURCE: 1994 fxdl engine pops when accelerating

It sounds like the classic lean carb problem. What we here in the rest of the country is richen the carb up a bit.

First, the carb comes with a #42 slow jet. We replace that with a #45. We also add a 3mm washer under the needle. The washer is approx. 0.020" - 0.023" thick. This raises the needle by that much and enriches the mid range just a bit. We normally leave the main jet alone. We also drill out the "anti-tamper" plug over the idle mixture adjustment screw so we can adjust that for the best idle. Of course, you must take the carb off the bike and remove the float bowl and the diaphagm and piston. I'd also check the accelerator pump diaghragm while I had the float bowl off. Take the two remaining screws out of the small circular cover on the bottom of the float bowl. The diaghragm and a spring is under the cover. Just look at the old parts when you take them out and put them back in the same way. There's a lip on the edge of the diaghram that sits in a groove and the spring goes on bottom side of the diaghragm.

Now, this is going to enrichen your mixture in the idle, slow speed, and midrange RPM of the engine. How it will effect your emissions test, I have no idea. It may pass or it may not once the mods are made.

Running too lean, if you changed the mufflers to screamin eagles without re-jetting you will get this problem.

SOURCE: what is number parts turn signal module dyna low

Ok, the part number for the turn signal unit that I have is 68537-89G. I think they still use the same unit today. The "G" is the "update" of the part. Each time they update the part, they go up one letter. As with all H-D parts, the last two digits, i.e. "-89", indicates the year that the part was first adapted and put into use. The "-89" means it was put into use in 1989 and it has been modified at least seven times since. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

Harley davidson dyna, when hitting the starter button you here the relay click but does not turn over and if you repeatily hit the starter button it will start...relay? or selenoid? starter....

First things new is your battery? A weak battery will do this. If your battery is new (no more than 5 years old), the starter solenoid is bad.

Check the battery voltage first. If that is within spec, replace the solenoid.
