SOURCE: I am replacing my OEM lower fork sliders with

The best way to do this is to get a clean containe and carefully drain the fork oil into it and measure how much came out nad replace the same amount.
I use a measuring cup from an automotive paint store.
Your old seals should be good but give them a good visual check first.

SOURCE: i just bought chrome fork sliders how do i remove

If you remove the front wheel, front brake caliper, and front fender and look on the very bottom of the slider where the axle came out, you'll see an 8mm socket head bolt. If you remove this bolt, the slider will come off.

But before you do that, I'd advise draining the oil from the fork leg and releasing the spring tension on the slider by removing the fork tube plug and removing the spring. To get to this plug, you'll probably have to remove the windshield, the nachelle, and the top cap. Then loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree and allow the fork to slide down and out of the triple trees.

When you refill the fork with oil. Use the same amount and viscosity as what was in there. Thicker viscosity and more oil has a tendency to "stiffen" the fork.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: how do I replace lower

Hi, i would advise you to get a service manual, but seeingas you don't have one. First take off the dust cover, then the dust shield under it. Below that there should be a retaining ring that needs to be compressed to take it out of its groove in the lower section. Then you should be able to slide the parts apart. Just be aware that there are another four parts in there that will come out. So don't forget how they go together.
And get a service manual, its all in there.

I am putting chrome lowers and the and chrome fork covers on my wifes 2005 deluxe, my first fork work, what is the nachelle, do I need to remove the forks, will that access the attaching hardware on the...


The nachelle is the polished or chromed cover around the headlight and the triple trees of the front end. I think the "nostalgia" model has the early model "tins" like on a fatboy. This is considered the nachelle.

Now, if you installing "covers" which are thin chrome plated alumnium or steel overlays to the forks, I would think they would be made so you could install them without disassembly of the forks. But, if you're installing "chromed lower sliders", you'll have to remove and disassemble the fork tubes one at the time to swap out the slider on each tube.

Good Luck

2001 harley davidson fat boy fork seals leak


Either the seals were not installed correctly or your tubes and sliders are excessively worn. Not changing the fork oil at recommended intervals will cause excessive wear. Overfilling the forks will cause leaks too.
