Question about Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard Motorcycles
The fender want go on with the wheel on and after the fender is installed, the wheel want go on. There has to be a way. With the brake backing plate in the drum, the torque bolt is sticking out too far to get in the hole. With the backing plate bolted up to the fork, the drum want fit past the brake shoes due to no room for the tire to move over enough with the fender on. I even let the air out of the tire and still a no go. GRRRRRRRR!!!

Hi Anonymous, ya I know it can be a pain, here is how I do it: let all air out of the tire, unbolt the wheel from the drum, get some one to hold the brake lever tight and wiggle the wheel off the drum. Leave the drum and backing plate attached to the fork leg, piece a cake lol Good luck

SOURCE: front fork oil
Take em off and do it right ... chances are high that your other tube seal is about to go as well, so do both of them at the same time. Even if you can't do it on your own (There may be a special tool involved that you don't have) you can still take the separated tubes to the shop, and you'll be charged alot less since you did the removal work yourself!

You just needed to.... remove front wheel, support bike on something, undo retaining bolts on forks, tap out fork legs from the top, using a soft mallet. Take out fork seals with a seal pick, (halfords) Replace old seal with new seals, in reverse order) sliding over the fork leg, tapping into place. Then put replace forks etc in reverse order (from dissassembly). Hope this helps

SOURCE: rear wheel removal
remove the chain. dont loose the pin. loosen the axle nut remove the axle. have a hand on the wheel as it will drop out at this point. install will be a bit harder. i like to lower the bike once the tire is under the fender. lower it until the holes are almost lined up. it beats trying to balance a tire and slip teh axle back in place. be sure to tighten the axle bolt to torque spec. too loose and you can get a shake, too tight and you can alter the path of the chain by a fraction and may cause premature chain wear.

The rear seat is held in place with a single bolt near the rear of the seat. This bolt is normally a socket head type (you use an allen key to remove it), is near the centre of the rear fender and also usually holds the rear rack or grab bar in place. Once the bolt is removed you may need to shift the rear of the seat sideways one way or the other in order that the tab on the seat clears the grab bar or luggage rack. The front end of the rear seat is secured under a tab so after removing the single bolt, simply slide the seat toward the back of the bike and it will come free.
