Remove the screw and air cleaner cover, remove the three TORX screws and the bracket from the filter element, gently pull both rubber breather tubes from the back of the element, remove the filter element and gasket, replace the filter element if damaged or if filter media cannot be adequately cleaned, gently pull the breather tubes from the breather bolts on the backplate, clean the filter element by washing the paper/wire mesh air filter element and the breather tubes in lukewarm water with a mild detergent, do not strike the filter element on a hard surface to dislodge dirt, allow the filter to either air dry or blow it dry from the inside with low pressure air. Do not use air cleaner filter oil on the Harley-Davidson paper/wire mesh air filter element. c. Hold the filter element up to a strong light source and if light is uniformly visible through the element, it is sufficiently clean.

My harley wont stay running when you letgo of start button

Hi Keith, make sure your battery ground cable has clean and tight connections at both ends. Try checking your fuel pump relay for integrity by switching it to the starter relay position after you remove the starter relay, if the bike turns over then your fuel pump relay is probably ok.

I need to remove the seat on my 2001 Soft Tail Standard FXST. Took out 2 bolts (one on either side) as well as the bolt for the passenger seat, but seat still won't budge. Any ideas???

Remove a bolt on each side as well as the passenger seat bolt on back fender and pull firmly BACK on the seat to dislodge the seat from the channel that is securing the front portion to the frame. Seat Strap will have to be removed with a T40 Torx wrench to allow separation.
