Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Seriously, Jack it up and support it safely. Remove the battery. Drain and remove the gas tank. Start taking off pieces until the front end is separate from the rest. If you're having fun, you're on your way to becoming a Harley Mechanic.
If you're not having fun, consider hiring a Harley Mechanic.
There are no short cuts for complicated procedures, that is except for the cutting torch.

First, remove the front wheel and take it to a shop and have it computer balanced. On a mag wheel, the lead weights simply stick on and are notorious for coming off after a while. Make sure the wheel is balanced correctly and the "run out" of the wheel and tire is acceptable.
When you put the wheel back on the bike, check the wheel bearing end play. The book says that it should be between 0.004 - 0.018". I'd try to keep it below 0.010" in your case. Check the adjustment and "fall away" of the front end, tension on the steering head bearings. Since I don't have a manual for your year model Sportster, I must refer you to a dealer or authorized shop for this information.
Also. check the alignment of the rear wheel in the swing arm. The book shows the use of a straight edge place along side one edge of the front wheel to check the alignment of the rear wheel with the front wheel. Use a piece of straight angle aluminum.
Also, check your rear shock settings. A stiffer setting my help. If all else fails, there are places you can take your bike and they will check it on a frame jig to optimize the entire bike for proper alignment.

SOURCE: Where are the two ends
Well, I'm not sure I understand this question but I'll try. The speed sensor itself is mounted on the right side of the transmission case, just below the starter motor. The other end is connected to the speedometer on the backside. Just follow the wires up to the speedo and take the plate of the backside of the speedo.
