Rear wheel position 2000 road king

Hello.Just curious as to where my rear wheel (2000 road king)should be in relation to fender.Mine isn,t centered and is off about 1/8th inch or so towards drive belt side.Also what space should there be between the drive belt and tire.Reason I'm asking is bike shop relaced rim and the drive belt will rub a little on tire(when backing up bike then going forward).They said this is normal,I don't think it is.I also have rubbing(squeeling)from rear wheel rotor(brakes pads are still good)if wheel is misaligned,could this cause this or is rotor warped.I just got the bike and didn't hear any noise when I first got it. Thanks for any info Kevin

This is not normal under no circumstance should your drive belt rub!! If you didn't take it to a dealer do so, if you did see the service manager or owner!

99 mercury grand marquis.the steering wheel does not return to center on its own. And the steering wheel isn't in right position when the wheels are straight.?


the return to the center on it's own is a result of the wheel alignment castor setting
if it set at zero or minus setting ( -1 degree) it has no action requiring it to return to center
To explain how it works --- the angle at which the king pin is set back ( positive degree) lowers the car
when turning a circle , the car is lifted up and loads up the king pin
when you let the wheel go that weight tries to fall down and that is the return to center position action
so to fix that problem , have a wheel alignment done and set at positive degrees ( normally around 1 1/2 degrees)
next problem is when you set with the wheels straight ahead there is no allowance for the camber of the road ( used to allow water run off in the rain) that means that if you position the wheel straight ahead when on flat ground then when driving down the road you will have the wheel slightly off center to allow for the car trying to run off the road from the road camber
it could also mean that if you have had suspension or steering work done that the steering was not centralized when the tie rod ends were adjusted for toe in adjustment and so the box /rack is now set slightly one way
it could also mean that the rear end is out of alignment and the vehicle is running sideways down the road ( crabbing)
the fix is to find yourself an accredited wheel alignment shop and have an alignment done properly starting by aligning the rear wheels first and then the front many will say not necessary but I can assure you that it is vital for tire wear and vehicle handling and if they don't want to do the job properly go somewhere else

How to center back tire of harley davidson 2005 road king


If you have the spacers in the proper places, the rear wheel is where it should be as far as "centering" goes. Not all wheels are designed to be "centered". On a Softail, there is an offset but I'm not positive about your road king.

Now, if you're talking about the alignment of the rear wheel in the swing arm, the RK has the adjusters on the rear of the swing arms's arms. Measure each bolt and when you get the proper belt tension with both bolts being the same length, you're aligned. The way I do it is move the wheel forward until the belt is too loose. Then set the lenghts the same. Then by turning each bolt the same amount each time, I slowly bring the wheel to the rear until I get the correct belt tension.

Good Luck
Steve

Front end wobble


First thing to do is check front and rear tyre pressures. Next check for un-even wear of front tyre. Then check steering head bearings for correct tightness. Also check for bent front brake disks as one side bent can cause this. Check for worn wheel bearings also. Check engine mount rubbers as these can cause floating on bends if worn of loose. Basically check all chassis related items fully.

Location of oil drain plug on a 1999 HD Road King Classic


The solutions are close, so I must assume they are HD Road King answers, just not a 1999 Road King. The drain plug is on the front (facing the forks) left side (clutch) of the oil pan. On the 1999 model the drain plug is a 3/4 inch bolt. After changing the oil, be sure to replace the O-ring. The O-ring is rubber and does not last more than a single oil change. HD charges a dollar for the O-ring, but better to replace it than to end up with your new oil all over the garage floor.
