SOURCE: replace rear brake pads

Remove right saddlebag, pull the two caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Do not open bleeder or disconnect line. You will need to push a large screwdriver between the old pads before removing them in order to push the pucks back into the caliper or the new pads will not spread enough to reinstall. Then pull the two smaller bolts from the caliper and the pads will fall out. The pads are different for inside and outside, so pay attention, and remember, after reinstalling, before riding, be sure to pump brake pedal, and it may take a few stops before brakes stop as effectively as before.

SOURCE: replace speedometer cable

First: you unscrew the cable housing assembly from the back of the speedomiter housing. Second: you pull the speedomiter cable from the housing. If the cable is broken inside the housing you must unscrew the housing from the spedomiter adaptor on the front axle,. at this point you should be able to pull the broken end from the adaptor with a pair of pliersif you can't pull it at this point you will have to pull the front axle and take the adaptor out and try to remove the broken end. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: what type of motor oil used in 1994 harley davidson 883

harley recomends that you use their oil but i would be carefull because it is a cynthetic now if you were using regular oil what that will do is clean all the old build up out of the motor this can be bad because after time there are pin hole leaks that occure but the build up stops it from leaking but if you use cynthetic you cant go back to regular oil it will gum up on you and ruen your motor so you got to find out what has been put in it. but use a 10-30

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

Triple tree removal


This really just depends on the crew involved and the equipment used. Without a little more information, it's a little hard to tell how the pricing will turn out. I would suggest calling local contractors who do free estimates.

I'm fixing a 83 Harley-Davidson sportster. The last owner changed the handlebars and they are loose in the tripletree. what might be the problem?


If they are loose in the upper triple tree, you need to simply replace the riser bushings in the triple tree. Look under the triple tree and you'll see either two large bolts or two large nuts. If you take these off, you should see some rubber bushings that the risers go down through. If the bushings are worn or have gotten old and spongy, simply buy some new bushings and replace them. If the handle bars are loose in the handlebar clamp, take the clamp top off and see if the handle bars are knurled or have ridges cut in them. If not, they've put the wrong bars on the bike. You may can make a thin shim and put it around the bars and tighten it up a bit. If this doesn work, replace the clamp and risers.

Good Luck

How to remove 2004 softail fork lock


I don't have the instructions for the Softail but I do for the Dyna series bikes. I'm pretty sure it'll be the same.

Loosen the upper triple tree clamp pinch bolts and remove the upper triple tree and handlebars.

Raise the front end off the ground and loosen the fork stem bolt and allow the front fork assembly to drop down approximately 5 inches.

On the left side of the steering stem thare is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into to steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

Now, there is a set screw that holds the lock into the frame steering head. The set screw screws upward into a recess in the lock mechanism. The set screw is covered by a lead plug so that it is not easily seen or gotten to. The book says to use a scribe to remove the lead plug.

Unscrew set screw.

Insert a key into the lock and turn slightly

Wiggle and pull the lock assembly until you get it worked out far enough to get hold of the lock with a pair of pliers or something.

Rotate the steering stem slightly until the lock comes out.


Good Luck

I just went and bought new bearings for the front end,because their was a little play. the old ones were good,i bought bike used,and was wondering if their is supposed to be a spacer between triple...


I'm not sure what you mean by spacer but there is no spacer in there. The steering stem of the lower triple tree has the bearing on it. There is a thin dust shield that goes between the bearing and the triple tree. With the races installed in the frame, just slide the steering stem up into the frame and install the top bearing, dust shield, and retainer. Then the upper tree goes on.

Refer to this site for exploded views of your bike.

How do you remove the lower bering off the triple tree stem in order to replace the trees?


You need a puller. You can use what we call a "bearing splitter" and bolt it around the bearing and use two pieces of threaded rod and another plate to pull the bearing up off the stem. I've heard of some people using heat to heat the bearing without heating the stem and it will come off. I usually just buy another bearing.

Good Luck

My 98 dyna low rider I'm trying to remove and replace the fork lock cylinder and I have the and the lock works. I have removed the set screw and cylinder will only move out a little bit. Do I force it out...


You have to loosen the upper triple clamp pinch bolts and remove the upper triple tree and handlebars. Loosen the fork stem bolt and let the fork stem drop down approx. 5 inches. Then your lock will come out.

Note: On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

Right out of the book.

Replace damaged front fork lock on a 1996 harley davidson FXDS-CONV.


Ok, this is how you replace the lock on the front end.

1.Loosen upper triple tree clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.

2.Loosen fork stem bolt and let fork stem drop down approx. 5 inches.

Note: On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug. (there is a flat looking place below the key lock. The lead plug is underneath this and it hides a set screw. Dig the lead plug out to get to the set screw)

4.Unscrew the set screw

5.Insert key in lock and turn partially.

6.Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.

7.Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.

INSTALLATION

General
There is an internal boss in the left side of the steering head opposite the external boss. The end of the lock fits into this internal boss.

There is a hole in the bottom of the lock into which the set screw fits. This hole must be at the bottom when the lock is installed.

When the lock is correctly installed, a forward-facing flat on the lock will fit against a flat inside the external lock boss and the face of the lock will be flush with the face of the external boss.

1.Steering stem should be in above position. See steps 1 and 2 above.

2.Grease the end of the lock (the part that goes into the internal boss) and slide lock into external boss.

Note: Steering stem must be in locked fork position.

3. Move steering stem into locked fork postition. Rotate steering stem sligtly, while fully installing lock.

4.use Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and install set screw

5.Use key in the lock and tighen set scrw until lock begins to bind; then back set screw out 1/2 turn.

6.Pound in lead plug (or use a good quality sealant)

7. Install fork stem, upper triple clamp and handlebars.

Right out of the book. Hope it helps. Good Luck.
