Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
Does front of bike need to be off ground,amount of fluid to refill,any issue on fork springs
Yes the bike needs to be off the ground, the dealer will tell you exactly how much you need when you purchase the oil. You will need the socket to remove the nut on top of the fork tube. It's a special socket, 1-3/8s", of a soft metal so you don't mar up the chrome. $20 @ J&P cycles. You'll also need 2 new Brass crush washers that are at the fork bottom when you drain the old fluid out. IMHO, if you ride aggressively, or the bike "wallows" front to rear.....usually when you enter onto a bridge going down hill, you may want to add a thicker, performance oil. For really getting a good road feel/feedback I added Progressive springs for about $75 on Ebay. Also, when removing that top nut, once it is finger loose, place a rag over it and hang on tight because it is under tension, even off the ground. I'd hate to see the spring pop it into the air, and you KNOW it will land on & scratch you paint up! I commend you for doing this much needed, unglamorous and seldom done task. Good luck. Contact me if you have any more Qs.

SOURCE: How do Fill Front Forks?
YOU FILL FORKS BY TAKING THE CAPS OFF AT THE TOP BY UN DOING WITH A SPANNER BUT YOU MUST DO THIS WHILE THE FRONT IS OF THE GROUND AND THERE IS NO WEIGHT PUSHING THE FORKS AND YOU NEED THE MANUAL TO SEE HOW MUCH FLUID GOES INTO THE FORKS EXAMPLE IT WILL SAY (13CM FROM TOP) THIS MEANS FROM THE TOP OFF THE FORK YOU MEASURE 13CM FROM TOP TILL THE OIL HITS THE 13CM GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: The right side front fork
leaking at the seals on the slider? Or at the top above the tree? Either way, the fork will have to be taken apart and new seals installed. Leaking at the top, need internal build.
