Hi Anonymous, if your bulb is ok and both the front brake lever and the rear brake pedal do not cause the brake lite to come on I would look for a bad wire or connection in the fender harness area. Get out your test lite and for continuity at the brake light switches. and just for GP run a jumper from battery positive to the to the red wire with yellow stripe in the rear fender harness if it lites your problem is towards the main wiring harness if it does not light the brake light your problem is in the rear fender harnes or that docking master piece behind the tailite assembly and as a consulation prize to can visit http://officialharleyparts.com/wiring_diagrams.php to help guide you through your perilous journey. Good luck

SOURCE: Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003

No. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, (put a rag under the brake cylinder at the pedal to catch any fluid pushed out by the next step), depress the pads until they will clear the disc, remove the caliper assembly and replace the pads.

SOURCE: My rear tail light does not work when the front

You should have two filaments in the reat taillight lamp, one for tail light and one for brake light. You are not confusing these filaments/functions are you?

What you seem to be saying to me is that you have a lamp that had no tail light filament (burned out) but does have a brake light filament still intact.

Remove the light and check it visually and/or with a contunity tester.

I hope this helps you ...

If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again

SOURCE: My 2003 custom HD FXSTI Deuce has no signal

First, you need to check to see if someone has removed the turn signal cancelling unit. It's usually under the seat or in between the tanks. If it's still there, you may can buy the complete sub-harness that runs from that unit to the turn signals. One thing you going to need without a doubt is a wiring diagram. I'd just purchase a service manual for the bike.

SOURCE: Deuce turn signal not working

Possible fault with the switching unit. Please check the line to the switcher unit from the hand control switch and if this is good then the switcher is faulty , if not the cluster switch at the hand control can be faulty.

SOURCE: I have a HD 2003 Deuce -- It's ejecting the oil temperature gauge from the oil tank and splattering oil every were. Normally takes place during starting. Why?

There is too much pressure in the oil system. This problem is usually caused by too much oil, or a clogged oil line. Did the bike sit for the winter and the oil level seemed low when you brought it out of storage, so you added oil to the tank? If so, the bike "sumped", meaning oil from the tank drained into the bottom of the engine. Putting more oil into the tank caused an over full situation and that is why the dipstick is popping out of the tank. If this is the problem, siphon or drain some oil from the tank and run the bike until all the oil is out of the bottom of the motor. Then change the oil, adding the correct amount to the tank. DO NOT drain all the oil from the tank before running the bike!

What weight oil for summer should I use in my 2006 softail deuce?


Hi Anonymous, depends on the average temperature you expect to be riding in untill your next oil change. Contact your local dealer for advice. HD makes several different grades of oil. If you elect to run HD 20w50 SYN 3, which I highly recomend, then it does not matter what temperature you are going to ride in. As an added bonus they call it SYN 3 because you can run 20w50 in your engine, transmission and primary and it comes in a single container to change all 3. No longer do have to purchase 3 different types of oil for your Harley. Great stuff

Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003 harley davidson softail deuce to replace the brakes?


You do not have to remove the wheel according to the manual, but if you wish to remove the caliper you will need to remove the wheel....There are no caliper mounting bolts on the Deuce, the caliper is mounted through the rear axle. TO change the brake pages loosing the pad retaining bolts (2) then push the caliper gently towards the rotor and then pull it gently away from the rotor. This will free up enough space to get the new pads in. Remove the pad retention bolts and replace pads and tighten everything down.
