Check the mounting grommets and nounts for excessive movement. Your local Harley-Davidson dealer has Genuine OEM parts available to correct this fault.

I have an 05 flstsc,do i have to stand my bike up,or on kickstand to check oil in primary and trans?

bike needs to be upright to get a true reading of oil levels, have someone sit on it with their feet flat on the floor while you check the levels.

I have an 05 harley softail that starts to speed wobble only in corners as long as im accelerating its ok it used to be a springer bike now it has an 65mm ultima front end

Go in and have your tires balanced. mainly your front tire...even check your air pressure. Hope it gets better. You have a nice bike! :)

Hello, I have an 07 Springer Softail. My problem is that the front end is stiff, really movement at all. I took the shock off and it seems fine. It's like the front end is a rigid.

If your bike responds normally while riding upon the road and if during front braking the springs directly behind the headlight "extend" and "relax" in a "normal" fashion then you aren't experiencing any difficulties/problems. Springer front ends should only be adjusted or serviced by very qualified personnel as the spring pressures exerted by a springer assembly can seriously injure untrained persons.

My 2005 springer vibrates as i accelerate up thru the gears...yet when i clutch it goes away. I have had the dealer replace the compensator sproket and the rotor

You 05 model has the TC88B engine. This is the counterbalanced engine and there should be no engine vibration. I'd suspect something on the right side of the engine that drives the counterbalances.

Good Luck

Replace headlight on a 98 springer. or replace socket that bulb plugs into. black wires have melted part of socket. replced the bulb.headlight still works. one black wire is just hanging there i taped it...

The black wire is the ground wire. It should be connected to the headlight housing or the triple tree somewhere. The yellow wire is the low beam and the white wires are the high beam and high beam indicator light. I'd purchase a new headlight "pigtail" and rewire it before you have further problems.

I would like to install saddlebags on my 2005 Springer classic (FLSTSC). I am looking at the 90058-05 saddlebags. Will I need another kit or hardware to install the saddlebags? What is difference between...

We ride the same bike as you and had the saddle bikes fitted when we first bought the bike new. Yes, you will definately need a fitting kit, you do with all the bags, however be very careful about what bags you buy. We have the original 'money bag' shaped bags which were particularly designed for the bike and to match the saddle. The were very expensive and were the biggest waste of money ever! They are so impractical if you have a set of wet gear in each side they are full to bursting and the small opening at the top makes them very awkward. Just last year Harley bought out a new, bigger, set, I don't know what the top opening is like but it has to be better than the ones we have, we are even considering swapping to the new ones as we tour quite a lot.
Hope this helps.
