Easy 1 min job but an hr taking chrome off. Here is the readers digest version. Start with the headlight off first screw under light on chrome trim. then pry it off. unfasten the screws holding light on about 7 screws, then unplug light. their is a chrome piece on the top of light chrome has a nut holding it on take nut off then lift that piece off. pop the piece of plastic off the key hole it prys off two screws under it remove them. that piece of chrom has a screw in it in front of handlebars you uncovered it when you took that chrome cover piece off. JUST loosen it. Now im sure you took off your windshield before you started so now remove your bolts that hold on the quick release windshield on both sides. Your chrome nacell will now split apart to show your 4 bolds that lock down your handle bar. See I told you 1 in job but hr to take off the samn chrome. When you put that ling cover piece of chrome back on ..NOT To TiGHt or it will snap the piece the plastic goes on. Hope that helps.

Are there two clamps on the triple tree holding the bars? If so, tighten the clamps down.

Why wont the Headlight and Highbeam indicator wont work

Does the headlight itself work? Will it switch from low beam to high beam? If the lights work but just the indicator is bad, then perhaps the problem is in the indicator socket (corrosion or loose connection) or the wiring to the indicator (bad connector, break in the wire or printed circuit board trace). If the lights don't work, it could be the handlebar switch is failing but it's more likely to be the wiring coming from the bars to the handlebar pivot area.

My 2002 roadking handlebars are loose any fix

Harley Davidson handlebars are mounted in rubber vibration dampers. If they're too "mushy" for you, you can replace the bushings with either neoprene bushings or solid bushings. On your road king you need to gain access to the bottom side of the upper triple tree.

Loose handle bars

Usually you do have to remove the entire fairing. The Loosness that you feel in the handlebars is due to the rubber bushing that the handlebars are mounted in. These bushings are designed to absorb vibration. Over time, they get mushy. You must gain access to the upper triple tree which not only involves the removal of the fairing , it could require the removal of the headlight nachelle as well. Good Luck.

My handle bars are loose on my 2005 Harley Roadking FLHRI, how do I tighten them. Do I need to remove the headlight assembly?

They're probably not loose. The movement you're feeling is probably in the rubber bushing that the handlebars are mounted in. Harley has used rubber bushings for years to isolate the handlebars from as much engine and road vibration as possible.

On your "cruiser" bikes like your roadking, the bushing are quite soft to dampen the vibration to a greater degree. The bushing on the Softail may not be as soft. The good news is that they aren't difficult to replace with a firmer set. You will have to take the headlight nachelle off to gain access to the nuts or bolts that hold them in place. You can order aftermarket bushings that are more firm or you can even get solid steel bushings to eliminate the movement to the degree that you want.

Needing diagram of how to tighten handlebars on motorcycle

You have to remove the headlight, then the Nacelle ( passing lamps if you have them ) Under the lock ( which is removed with a small flat head screwdriver ( it's held in by 3 little push in tabs ) There are 2 phillips head screws( remove them ) then once you have the headlight out, there is a 5/16 nut holding the top chrome spine in place. Remove the nut lift the spline. then remove the nacelle one side at a time. Once you remove the nacelle the 1/4 allen bolts are right there to tighten. Make sure you tighten them evenly. Reverse steps to re-install back to normal.
