Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide
Posted by Anonymous on
Sorry I do not go back that far so you will either have to buy a service manual or maybe post your question on something like Fix My Hog.

your local hd shop should be able to answer this for you as its a mesured amount and to much or too little will make the bike not handle right

Ok, this is how you replace the lock on the front end.
1.Loosen upper triple tree clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.
2.Loosen fork stem bolt and let fork stem drop down approx. 5 inches.
Note: On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.
3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug. (there is a flat looking place below the key lock. The lead plug is underneath this and it hides a set screw. Dig the lead plug out to get to the set screw)
4.Unscrew the set screw
5.Insert key in lock and turn partially.
6.Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.
7.Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.
There is an internal boss in the left side of the steering head opposite the external boss. The end of the lock fits into this internal boss.
There is a hole in the bottom of the lock into which the set screw fits. This hole must be at the bottom when the lock is installed.
When the lock is correctly installed, a forward-facing flat on the lock will fit against a flat inside the external lock boss and the face of the lock will be flush with the face of the external boss.
1.Steering stem should be in above position. See steps 1 and 2 above.
2.Grease the end of the lock (the part that goes into the internal boss) and slide lock into external boss.
Note: Steering stem must be in locked fork position.
3. Move steering stem into locked fork postition. Rotate steering stem sligtly, while fully installing lock.
4.use Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and install set screw
5.Use key in the lock and tighen set scrw until lock begins to bind; then back set screw out 1/2 turn.
6.Pound in lead plug (or use a good quality sealant)
7. Install fork stem, upper triple clamp and handlebars.
Right out of the book. Hope it helps. Good Luck.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

I'm sorry but I don't have the specs on the quantity and type of fork oil for your year and model bike. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer service. But, I can describe the difference between the "wet" and "dry" conditions of the fork assembly. If you take the front forks apart, clean them out, and put them back together with no oil in them, they are considered "dry". For a simple drain and refill type oil change on them where you don't get all the oil out of them, they are considered "wet". I hope this helps, You can call you local dealer's service department and they should tell you the quantity and viscosity of the oil that goes in the front forks on your machine. They'll tell you something like 6 ounces of "Type E" oil, for example. Harley-Davidson uses these types of specs to describe their oils. If you go to a website for fork oil, like PJ1, they may give a cross reference or equivalency chart for converting H-D "Type E" to their oil. I think that would be their 30 weight oil. If the front end seems too "stiff" with 30 weight, you can drop down to 20 weight. I think Honda makes a 25 weight but not sure. Your Harley won't mind the Honda oil. BG.
