What year????? Sounds like a breather problem. Does the bike get fully warmed up a lot of a lot of short rides???? It appears to have moisture/water in the oil. Should not have pressure in the crankcase.

SOURCE: i have a 2006 street glide fuel injected engine

If you have the spark plugs out of the engine, you will not see a spark on them when you crank the engine over. The engine is equipped with a compression sensor. No compression, no spark. Try installing another set of spark plugs and the rotate the engine over with a set in the wires.

Not getting any fuel is a tough one. Since I don't know much about the fuel injected, computer controlled models, the first thing I could tell you to do is to check to see if your fuel pump is working. With your ear press to the fuel tank, turn the switch on after it's been sitting a while. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for just a few seconds. I don't know what to tell you to listen for though. Some pumps make a whirring type sound others a clicking type sound. If you know someone else that owns a fuel injected bike, try it on their bike and see if you can hear anything. That's the best I can do. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2007 street glide in need of help(dealers say no problem)

What's your miles between changes?1500 to 2500 miles 1 qt. aint bad.Are you injected?do computer thing for ign/timing and air/fuel settings.If you're carb do jet cleaning and check float bowl setting.Check that float isn't leaking[full of fuel].Check plugs for good color and look for black residue in rear pipe,signs of bad air/fuel mixture and bad burning plug[coil voltage].If your carb doesn't have float check setting of rod that operates the fuel diaphragm.Do computer check for ign timing.Yea, if the plugs are oil fouled then forget what I said bout oil consumption.Baby it till winter and get top end done.Don't worry,2007 is too new for a top end.General tune-up should fix you up.New coils maybe.

Ingersoll and 15T2 lub oil turning milky, why??

The milky appearance of the oil is due to moisture (water) getting into the oil. I recommend that you drain and change the oil immediately. atmospheric variations (particularly high humidity) will cause this. There are two reasons. First, when the compressor is running, air coming through the air intake will have water particles in it. That moisture in the air slips past the piston rings and accumulates in the crank case. There's no stopping that, but a clean air filter will help. Secondly, while the compressor is running, it tends to heat up. Any moisture that has entered the crank case will vaporize due to the increased heat of operation. When the compressor is shut down, the moisture vapor will condense on the inside walls of the crank case and form droplets which will run down into the crank case oil. When the compressor is started again, the oil agitators at the bottom of the pushrod caps will agitate the oil, thusly mixing the condensed water with the oil causing the milky appearance. Best to check the oil at each start-up, and change it when it gets milky.

How do you adjust the timing on the 08 street glide?

You don't. It's controlled electronically by the crank position sensor in the front of the engine case. This sends a timing pulse to the ECM and it sets the timing. Now, the dealer may be able to adjust the timing but the owner is not unless you have installed a "break out box".

Good Luck

Excessive blow by

If you're getting excessive blow by and filing your breather with oil, you need to do a "wet - dry" compression test or a leakdown test to check the condition of your piston rings. It may be time to freshen up the top end.

Good Luck

What make engine to have excess oil

Water. when an intake or head gasket blows it can drain coolant into the crank case. You need to check this out. and don't drive the car. Coolant in the crankcase will destroy an engine. you can remove the oil drain plug and see what comes out. coolant will drain first. Unless the coolant and oil have already mixed, then it will come out a milky tan to brown color

I have a toro 421 snowblower i filled it up today with oil and gas when I started it a milky white oil looiking came out the breather tube what could have caused this

it sounds like you had water in the crank case.
Stop running it immediately and drain all the oil. Then make sure the crank case is empty of oil and clean, and refill with fresh oil. After you fill it back up with oil, run it a minute and check again for any milky/foamy oil. If it is clean, check it again after several minutes. If it stays clean, you should be good. If it is milky again, take it for professional service, as you probably have a damaged gasket somewhere.

I just purchased a 2007 Street Glide (traded a Heritage Softail) and it seems to vibrate excessively at idle. Perhaps I'm just not accustomed to it yet. Your thoughts?

the touring models are going to vibrate or more so shake at and idle more than your softail.the one major difference in your twin cam "B" engine and twin cam 96" A engine is that the softail is counter balanced in the crank case and is also a solid mount engine. straight engine to frame.these two counter balancer's are chain driven off of the crank. the street glide has three rubber mounts on it, one being in the front where the wish bone or down tubes turn inder the bike and two in cleave blocks that are alighned by small pins to be located in the correct position the swing arm also uses these in mounting the swing arm. so you will notice at around 75 mph to 80 mph you may get a "rider known death wobble" (just slow down) there are after market braces in all ranges of price to solve that problem. the more expensive the better it will last and work.

Where is the oil drain plug for the 2008 FLHX street glide

I'm not really familiar with the Street Glide but usually on the "Glide" models, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. There are usually two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. The drain closest to the left front corner is the engine oil drain. The one nearest the center is the transmission.

Good Luck
