SOURCE: 84 FXST Starter Kicks out before engine fires

I'd be willing to bet that it's not "kicking out". The tale tell sign is that the starter keeps running. As long as the plunger in the solenoid is pulled inward,which moves the starter drive into engagement with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, the start will run. If the starter drive were being "kicked out" the solenoid wouldn't still be engaged and the starter would not continue running.

I would come closer to thinking that your starter drive is bad, the bendix. These things are notorious for going bad, especially the cheap Chinese made aftermarket ones. I've replaced them with only a few weeks use on them. If you buy a new drive, get an Accel, made in the U.S.A.. Simply pull the starter drive out and clamp the shaft in a vice with aluminum jaws on it. The little nut on the end has left handed threads. When you put the nut back on, put some Red Loctite #271 on it. This ought to solve your problem. If you have anymore questions, drop me a line directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net Good Luck!

SOURCE: Both my front and rear brake light does not work

The odds of both switches going bad at the same time are pretty slim but maybe you're just now noticing it.

The front brake light switch is located in the right handlebar switch housing. You'll have to take the two bolts out of the housing and separate the halves. You'll probably have to take the throttle and idle cables out as well. The switch is located on the inner face of the housings facing the front master cylinder. It's held in by a single screw. If you wish to retain your original wires, you'll have to unsolder the wires and resolder them to the new switch.

The rear light switch is a pressure switch. Find the metal brake tube coming out of the rear brake master cylinder. Follow it back towards the rear wheel and you find a tee with a pressure switch screwed into it. Unplug the wires and replace the switch.

Now, the brake lights, tail lights and probably the turn signal lights are wired with a subharness that plugs into the main harness. If this plug has come loose or just the pins for the brake lights have come loose, your light won't work.

I something here helps.

Good luck
Steve

What are the torque specs for the derby bolts on hd fxst


84 - 108 in/lbs. Do NOT use loktite and do not overtighten otherwise you will have dificulty in removing these later on. These are not structural bolts, simply cover bolts. For those without a torque wrench, a 'snug' fit will suffice.

Rear brake light does not work when I apply the front brake


It's the brake light switch.
Sometimes it gets gummed up, or it just goes bad.

Figure yours has been in use for a decade, so you might need to change it.

Both my front and rear brake light does not work on my 2002 FXST It is not a bulb problem


The odds of both switches going bad at the same time are pretty slim but maybe you're just now noticing it.

The front brake light switch is located in the right handlebar switch housing. You'll have to take the two bolts out of the housing and separate the halves. You'll probably have to take the throttle and idle cables out as well. The switch is located on the inner face of the housings facing the front master cylinder. It's held in by a single screw. If you wish to retain your original wires, you'll have to unsolder the wires and resolder them to the new switch.

The rear light switch is a pressure switch. Find the metal brake tube coming out of the rear brake master cylinder. Follow it back towards the rear wheel and you find a tee with a pressure switch screwed into it. Unplug the wires and replace the switch.

2001 fxst harley brake light stays on all the time


Loosen the two bolts that holds the front brake master cylinder on to the handlebars and slide the front brake master cylinder down as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this does not solve the problem, I'd guess that the front brake light switch was bad and needs replacing. It's inside the right handlebar swich housing.

Good Luck
