I would check to make the brakes are not locked up. Could also be bearings in the wheels as well.

SOURCE: 1993 harley davidson softail manual

If I am to understand you correctly, you're asking whether it would be more beneficial to get a workshop manual, which would generally cover a wider range of models and years, or the manual for a particular bike, and my advice is to get the factory service manual for your particular year and model. Or if you're just wondering where to get a manual, they're available from a local H.D. dealer or by mail from an out of town dealer if you don't happen to have a local shop.

SOURCE: MY 1990 HARLEY SOFTAIL HAS NO SPARK BATTERY IS NEW AND IT TURNS OVER

Either the stator plate, or coil is not getting power. First thing I would check would be power from the coil with an ohmmeter.

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.

Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.

Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.

I have a 1993 harley davidson softail the battery is brand new and will take a charge but the battery goes dead the bike died on me to day and since then i don't have a low beam. it will run fine


Hi Brandon, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

How much oil does a 1993 harley softail transmission take


About a quart. Stand the bike straight up and remove the derby cover. Fill to the bottom of the spring in the clutch assembly. Do not overfill or you'll be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Stalling problems on softail


I have a 1987 Softail and had a similar problem, but worse. That is some good advise to check the tank screen, I bet you will find your problem there. I found my problem in the tank with a clogged screen, stuff in tank so I flushed it with some clean fuel. I also flushed the fuel line cause I found trash in the carb, so then I rebuilt the carb (on your S&S you can take the float bowel off with out removing the carb to check for trash that may have gotten past the screen in the tank). I'm big on overkill though,you may only have to work on the tank.
