Check your rotor out closely. Look for a crack in it that runs from one hole to another. The holes are for cooling purposes but if the rotor gets too hot for one reason or another, it'll crack. When it heats up from the braking action, metal one either side of the crack becomes uneven and causes a "click, click, click" noise.

If you don't find any crack, first off that's good, But, then you need a dial indicator to check for warpage of the rotor. Mount the dial indicator on the fork slider and the spin the wheel with the dial indicator on it. Anymore thans a few thousandths could cause the rattle by moving the caliper side to side.

The rotor caliper is mounted so that it will move side to side and the pads are mounted inside so that they "float". They have anti-rattle clips and springs to keep the noise down. Make sure all these parts are in there and positioned properly.

Have the computer re-mapped. I have the same bike with a stage 1 upgrade. The race tuner was bad. Dealer removed it, remapped the stock computer with the stage 1 settings and all has been well since.

My first inclination is tell you that it is probably jetted too lean. The low speed jet should be a number 29.5 or a 31. The main should be a 72 in most cases. Your bike may require a step up or down from these jet sizes as I don't know what kind of exhaust or other modifications your bike has nor the location (altitude) you are at. This is a common complaint with the Super "B". The biggest reason for this is that the Super "B" carb did not have an accelerator pump on it. This means that when you rev the engine, you create a momentary lean condition before the vacuum signal can start to draw fuel from the main jet circuit. Go to S&S's site and download the installation instruction for your Super "B" carb, file 51-1006. Even though they have stopped production of this model, the instructions are still posted online. The Super "E" carburetor was designed to replace the "B" model. The "E" is called the "Shorty" because it is much shorter and does not stick out as far as the "B" model. It also has an accelerator pump that smoothes out the transisition between the idle-low speed circuit and the high speed circuit. Also, check your plugs, plug wires (especially the spark plug boots and the end that plugs into the coil) and the points. You may be getting a misfire or a weak spark.

Hi Michael, someone just borrowed my best pair of listening ears less than an hour ago so I am forced to use smoke and mirrors to help you with you issue. Since this will probably require alot of Q&A contact me at xlch@mail.com and you can start by telling me where you believe the location where this bird seems to be nesting. Left side, right side, front, rear, top or bottom and how long has this noise been anonying you. Have nice day.

Front end vibration


One thing you could try is a "fork brace" or what some people call a "tweek bar" that ties the two sliders together. This reduces the amount of flex in the front forks. We used to run them on our dirt bikes years ago. They do help stabilize the front end.

Also drop your front tire pressure to 30 psi and look for any unusual wear patterns on you tires such as cupping. Take the wheel off and have it spin balanced as well. You can also change the fork oil in your forks. I run PJ1 30 weight in my Wide Glide. It's a bit on the stiff side but it sure helped the handling as the bike no longer bounces and dives in the turns. I also got away from the Dunlop tires. I now run Metezler 880's and they seem to handle the turns better but I think the Dunlops had better braking characteristics.

Good Luck

The blinkers work but the brake lights dont for a 2003 harley davidson dyna super glide...how can i fix this?


Check to see if the brake light works when you apply the front brakes. If they work but if the brake light won't come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed, the rear brake light switch is bad. Find the rear brake master cylinder and you'll see a metal line coming out of it. Follow the line back towards the rear of the bike until you come to a tee in the line. The brake light switch is screwed into the tee and a couple of wires plugged onto it.

If neither your rear brake light nor you tail light works, first check the bulb. If the bulb is good, you might have a wiring problem. The wiring is a sub-harness that plugs up under the seat area and then runs back to the rear light assembly. The turn signal wiring usually run down each side of the rear fender behind the fender struts.

KENMORE DRYER


Hello ENRIGHT11 Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


You said,
DRYER MAKES VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN RUNNING. ALTHOUGH IT HEATS UP AND BEGINS TO DRY, IT STOPS RUNNING COMPLETELY AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES. IF YOU WAIT AN HOUR, YOU CAN START IT AGAIN, BUT IT AGAIN SOUNDS VERY LOUD (ALMOST A RATTLING SOUND) AND THEN SHUTS OFF AFTER 5 MINUTES

Faulty Blower Wheel

If you hear a great deal of noise coming from the blower area of the dryer when it is running, then the blower wheel could be defective.

The are many different designs for blower wheels and just as many unique failure modes. Vanes (fins) can break off the wheel and bounce around in the blower breaking more pieces. The blower can break around the coupler with the shaft. This can cause the blower to spin loosely on the shaft. The blower can form cracks which cause it to vibrate, etc.

You should also not be surprised to find foreign debris in the blower. The occasional bird, rodent or squirrel has been known to bypass the out vent cover. If they crawl into the exhaust tube the first thing they come into contact with is the blower wheel.

If the blower wheel is not spinning, or if it is missing vanes, it is not moving air efficiently. As a result, heat is not removed from the heat source and it can trip the high limit switch or blow the thermal cut-off.
Worn Belt
A worn belt can stretch and/or become brittle with age. The belt can then slip on the drum or motor to cause squeaking. If this is the case, the solution is to replace the worn belt.

The belt is not the only item that can cause squeaking. It can also be caused by a faulty idler pulley, worn drum bearings, worn drum glides or worn drum rollers depending on brand and style.

When replacing the Belt is is a good idea to also change the Drum Support Rollers, Drum Glides, Idler Pulley and Clips. All of these items are economical easily changeable when replacing the belt. The upside is that your dryer will operate like new.

Worn Drum Glides
Some dryer models are equipped with Drum Glides. The front of the dryer rests on these glides. They provide a low friction surface on which the drum spins. After time however, this glides wear down. Much like an automobile brakes, these glides make a load grinding noise when they wear thin. This griding against the drum usually leaves a bare metal stripe that is visible at the point of contact. If the glides are worn, the solution is to replace them.

Worn Drum Support Rollers
Some dryers such as Whirlpool/Kenmore brands are equipped with Rear Drum Support Rollers. The weight of the dryer drum rests on these rollers. They provide a low friction surface on which the drum spins when in operation. After time however, these rollers wear down. When they wear, often times they begin to elongate and form a non-round 'cam' shape. The result is that when the dryer is turned on it creates a rumble that sounds as though you are trying to dry a pair of tennis shoes. This sound is usually the drum being forced up and down on the non-round wheels. If the rollers are worn, the solution is to replace them.

Kenmore models have a dryer maintenance kit that contains all of these items in a single kit.
