Hi Anonymous, If you are talking about the compensating sproket nut you need to jam a large soft piece of metal aluminum or brass or a piece of hard wood on the bottom of the primary chain and compensating sproket to keep the engine from rotating. Then torque the sproket nut to 165 ft lbs. Good luck

SOURCE: I have a 1999 fatboy

On a '99 Fatboy, you can use H-D Syn3 20W50 engine oil in all three locations. But, you can use most any lubricant you wish as long as it meets Harley's specifications. Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil V-Twin, just check the manufacturer's website for compatibility. On the Evo engines, I use H-D or Mobil V-Twin synthetic 20W50 engine oil. I use nothing but H-D transmission and primary lubricant in those two locations.

Good Luck

SOURCE: How do I tighten a

You take the oval inspection cover off of the outer primary cover. Inside you will see a nut. Loosen the nut and you can raise the primary chain adjuster to tighten the chain or lower it to loosen it. Use your finger to gauge the tension of the upper run of the chain. Set the up and down play of the chain to 3/4" to 7/8" with the engine cold.

Good Luck

SOURCE: I replaced the front brake

The bolts that you tightened has nothing to do with the rattle. In reality, the caliper slides along these bolts as the pads wear. Usually, the pads hold enough pressure against the rotor even when the brakes are not applied to prevent rattling. The rear pad is held in place by a plate with a bolt that screws into the rear pad. The pad on the outside has a flat spring that holds it into the cavity in the piston to prevent it from rattling. The caliper has o-rings inside the bores where the bolts go through to keep it tight on the two bolts you put in. Grab the caliper and try to shake it. If you can shake it, these o-rings are most likely gone. Refer to this drawing to see what I'm talking about.

How to replace a clutch drum on an 09 Electra glide


Pull primary cover and then pull primary chain adjuster and compensator and clutch and chain out and then remove six metric bolts and remove clutch pressure plate and discs and then replace hub and bearing assembly and replace clutch disc and pressure plate etc as you took them apart. Might not cost that much more to simply buy a whole new clutch assembly and have it all new. You will need a bar to lock the primary and compensator together when you loosen and when you tighten the retaining fasteners.

Tighten compensating sprocket bolt to 100 ft-lbs (135.7 Nm) and then reverse the drive locking tool and loosen the bolt one full turn and then reverse the locking tool again and tighten the bolt to a final torque of 140 ft-lbs (190.0 Nm). Install the locking tool again and tighten the clutch hub mainshaft nut to 70-80 ft-lbs (94.9-108.5 Nm).
After the compensator and clutch fasteners have been torqued Install the primary chain tensioner and tighten the fasteners to 15-19 ft-lbs (20.3-25.8 Nm).

I have a 2008 fatboy When I start it it makes a


When is the last time you checked the tension on your primary chain. That's about the only owner serviceable thing that I know that might cause this problem. Disconnect the battery negative cable. Remove the inspection cover from the primary cover, stick your finger in and check the tension on the chain on the top run. It should have between 3/4 and 7/8 inch up and down travel with the engine cold. To adjust, loosen the nut on the adjuster. Raise the adjuster shoe to reduce the play, lower to increase it. When you get it right, tighten the nut and replace the inspection cover. If this doesn't stop your problem, you'll have to take it to a shop and let them hear the noise to determine whether or not it is something to be concerned about.

Good Luck

1991 fatboy harley


theres a rubber boot on your clutch cable, under it is your cable adjuster. free up the jam nut then turn your adjuster , you should be able to see it tighten at the hand control. If you wanna do the whole job, you'll need to remove your derby cover on the primary. You'll be lookin at the clutch. In the center is a jam nut. Loosen it and then u can turn the adjusting screw clockwise till it stops. Then back it out 1/2-1 full turn. Tighten the jam nut.... take up the slack in the cable..... replace the boot,,,,TA DA!
