Take off the Derby cover, the fluid should come to just below the bottom lip. I change mine every other oil change. Be very careful with the O-ring seal on the derby cove it can be a pain to seat properly and will pinch and leak if your not careful. I use a little vaseline to seat the O-ring

Why does the transmision go clunk when you move it from park to revers in my 2004 4.6 ford explorer


What I found when my F250 would go Klunk, I found out that it was low on trans fluid. After allowing it to warm up, I checked it and sure enough, it needed fluid.

After adding, no more Klunk.

Also, when I was helping a buddy change out his clutch, by accident, about a cup full of tranny gear lube, poured out onto the floor.

Not thinking that it was a big deal, we installed clutch and trans and tightened everything up. Only problem was...now it would not shift into any gear.

After messing with the linkage, I remembered the cup of fluid that poured out. There was a cap on the top of trans, so we added about a cup full of gear oil.

Wah Lah! Everything was working normally again.

Check your fluids ... hopefully it is a easy fix for you.

2005 XL1200C check engine light


Read your service manual on how to retrieve your error codes. Then look up what those error codes mean. If the engine seems to run fine now, try clearing the codes and see if they show up again. If they do look into what the code is warning you about and check that item.

Why does my 2002 hd xl1200c vibrate badly at 55 and up then seems to struggle for power


Hi Scott, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck and have nice day.

Where do I find the fuse block on a 2011 XL1200C?


Hmmm, good question. Since I don't work on the late model bikes, I'm not sure. Usually on Sportys, the fuse panel is behind the triangular plate on the left side of the bike or under the seat.

Good Luck
Steve

Bought the Bike Used from a HD Dealer 2004 XL1200C Sportster. 2400 Miles 2nd time I took the Bike for a ride It was Slamming into Gears Very Loudly, Had the Clutch adjusted and Gasket Replaced, Next Time...


check for the pinched vacuum line at the carb,, sportys are hard to locate because they are tucked in way behind , it ay have come disconnected, unless there is a load on the motor it will idle fine, add a little load and you get the feeling no fuel is getting through unless you rev it up

In my Grand Marquis 1999 while i am driving suddenly o/d off light is flashing what is the problem, is that possible to be transmission oil ? thanks


Not the trans fluid

Oil only cools,lubes & applies pressure to
the clutch drums & bands

You change trans & power steering fluid
every 3 years or 30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

Changing trans fluid DOES NOT FIX ANYTHING

You have to have the OD light issue diagnosed

Lube Guard makes a friction modifier additive for transmission fluid that requires it. You can find it at major auto parts stores. Go to Lube Guard. com and check it out.

How to change transfer case oil


I assume that by the term "transfer case", you're talking about the primary drive and transmission on your Sportster. The lubricant that you pour into the primary case also lubes the transmission. Not so on a Big Twin as they each have their own lubricants.

On the Sporty, theres a drain plug on the bottom of the primary case near the rear end of it. I'm pretty sure it uses a Torx driver to remove it. Drain the oil and refill with H-D primary & trans lube for Sportsters. Remove the derby cover at the rear of the primary cover and fill the primary until the oil level is even with the clutch pressure spring with the bike standing straight up. Replace the derby cover.

Need maintenace schedule


Spark plugs at 100,000 (use AC Delco plugs, they work best), check air filter at 15,000 replace at 30,000, replace fuel filter at 30,000, service (fluid and new filter) automatic trans at 60,000, replace hoses and flush cooling system at 100,000 miles, (use long life coolant), check belt at 30,000, replace if any rubber in ribs is missing, cracks are ok per factory bulletin's. oil and filter at least every 5,000 miles, lube chassis every other oil change, more often if u drive short trips, lube the door hinges and hood hinges and all latches every 30,000 miles. If I missed anything you want to know let me know. one last note manual trans and differential change lube only if torn down for repair, otherwise it is lifetime.
