SOURCE: Throttle to engine problem on 1993 Harley 883 Sportster

 You either need to lube the cables, or adjust them. You adjust the throttle to have a 16th to an 8th inch of freeplay with the bars like youre riding straight. You adjust the snap back with the bars fully to the right. As far as the motor shutting off , you need to use the enrichner ( they call it a choke) until it will idle on its own without rapping the throttle.  Also , your idle may be set too low on the carb. The adjustment is made at the idle speed screw , right behind the air cleaner.

SOURCE: what is the float height setting for a 1984 harley

With the float bowl off and the float assembled in the carb, hold the carb on it's side with the needle and seat hinge upwards.

Set the float height to 0.630" to 0.670" (16-17mm) from the "bottom" of the float to the gasket surface where the float bowl gasket seal is.

These carbs are notorious for leaking past the needle and seat even when the float level is set correctly. They make a tool for refurbishing the seat in the carb as it is not replacable but the tool is very expensive for what it is and the amount of use will get out of it ($100). Sometimes I've set the float level an additional 1mm low (18mm) to put more pressure on the needle if it does leak. Good Luck!

SOURCE: how to change bearings in

Remove the rear wheel leaving the brake drum on the bike. There is one wheel bearing in the wheel. Drive it out with a hammer. The other two are in the brake drum, drive them out with a hammer as well. These are sealed beaings.

good luck,

1984 Harley Davidson FLHX

I believe it should be a 2:1

However, your old speedo should have the ratio on it's underside.
Take it off and turn it over and see if it's indicated there.

Hi Anonymous, it sounds the like starter drive/clutch has gone south, it has components inside, that when spinning, centrifugal forces cause them to grab or lock into permanently fixed counterparts. The gear only spins one way and locks the other way. If you have one that spins both ways it makes a noise like the starter is just spinning, it has failed and needs to be replaced.

I have a 1984 FLHS Shovel. It is pumping oil out of the crankcase breather tube.

you either have too much oil in there or the engine needs rebuilding as the rings/bore will need sorting out.

1982 Harley davidson shovel head , i need the topend bolt torque spec's

I always pull them to 70 foot pounds in a criss cross pattern. Start the engine up and allow it to warm up. When cool, retorque the heads in the same manner. I only use Fire Ring head gaskets.

Good luck

My 1980 Harley FLT shovel head is making louder then normal sounds and seams to get hot. I think maybe oil pump?

Shovel head lifters tend to wear out. Check your adjustment first. Shovels also run on the warm side. Does it idle good? If not, check for intake leaks.
