Service manual


For a rebound adjustment, jack up your bike.
Be sure the front tire is off the ground.
Once this is done let your springer front end fall either to the left or right. Your springer front end should only bounce back about a inch and then stop.

Most people prefer the "Fall-Away" adjustment.
Jack the bike so the front end is off the ground.
Place a piece of tape along the front edge of the front fender.
Find the center balance point of the front end.
Place a pointer of some sort at the center of the fender. Make a mark on the tape for the center balance point. Mark does not have to be in the exact center of the fender.
With the pointer in place, turn front end in each direction and note where the front end just begins to fall away on it's own. Make a mark on the tape at these positions. Marks do not have to be centered and may be unequal distances from the center mark.
Measure the distance between the two outer marks. If the distance is 1-2 inches the fall away is correct. If less than 1", loosen the upper bearing retainer nut. If more than 2", tighten the upper bearing retainer nut.

I get a dangerious side to side wobble at 30 - 40 on my 2000 FXST


Springer models have a tendancy to ruin neck bearings. Get the front wheel off the ground and point staight ahead. Now move the handlebars slightly from side to side. If you feel a slight "catch" or if the front wheel stays straight without falling to the side then the neck bearings are shot. They are tapered roller bearings, like a wheel bearing. The outer race will have a depression you can feel with your thumbnail. Pack the new bearings with the grease made for that purpose. A couple of hints: When h-d first made this grease available, I laughed. Use it, it works. It was originally designed for helicopter rotors. To remove the outer races, you may have to weld a bead on the bearing surface. The pre-load adjustment is critical. Too loose and you will get a wobble. Too tight and you get a weave, which is worse. It is normal for a springer front end to fall off to the left even when the wheel is pointed somewhat to the right. This is a pretty big job, so if a shop is going to do it you may want to show this to them and ask if it makes sense to them, but please don't second guess them.
