1999 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classice

I have a 1999 heritage softail classic, installed new plugs and wires and bike started fine. It idled with no problem for 20 minutes then died. Now it does not want to start or if it does start the throttle has no effect on the motor and it is backfiring, once 5 or 6 seconds after it quit. Any suggestions

Wasted spark system ans you may have plug wires crossed and new plugs may look good but be bad already from misfiring etc.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

How to change oil for2007 heritage softail classic


The oil drain us usually a hose with a plug in it that is held by a clip on the frame. It us usually on the right hand side of the bike just behind and underneath the transmission side cover. Loosen the clamp and pull the plug out. The oil will run out of the tank. Replace plug and add new oil to the tank.
