Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic
My bike is a 1989 Electraglide Ultra Classic. When I take off there is a grinding sound coming from the primary. I pulled it apart and I did not see anything that was wrong. I took it out to test and now if is hardly holding any gear at all. It feels like the main shaft is just spinning not engaging with the main shaft.... or that it is engaging but the transmission is not engaging. It is making a terrible grinding noise. HELP please!
It sounds like the Nut that hold the inner Belt Sprocket has backed off and stripped the teeth out of the sprocket.
Hard to be sure without seeing it but that is my best guess from what you describe.

Sounds like a clutch problem - the only thing that transfers drive from the engine to the rear wheel that can slip excessively is the clutch - other components can wear but not slip.
I know a huge amount of the Harley range use dry clutches not oil bath types like jap bikes.
Saying that it means its like a car clutch - these types of clutches do not like any abuse as they over heat and wear very quickly reesulting in slipping - as you are describing.
A oil bathed clutch shares the oil in the engine and has friction plates like an automatic gear box - because of the oil that can cool the clutch plates they last pretty much forever and don\'t wear from abuse.
Look at your clutch.

SOURCE: TRANSMISSION SERVICING
Most are using Syn3 oil in engine, tranny, and primary.
This simplifies this, and is a decent oil.
32oz of oil in primary.
20-24oz of oil in tranny
99851-05 primary case/ trans oil(Conv Oil)
there are other brands that surpass the syn3 oil but it takes some hunting around to find a supply.
Ammsol is one such brand and they recommend.
Hope this is of some assistance

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.
0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.
All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.
