These type of "beauty covers" typically have a small allen screw around the circumference of the cap somewhere that tightens against one of the flats of the nut. If no allen screw is found it could be held in place by a silicone glue. Try prying CAREFULLY as not to damage the cap. the actual nut is located under this cap.

How do u remove the front wheel on a 2002 Harley Davidson FXST


Jack the bike up so that it is off the ground and stable. Take the nut off the axle and loosen the cap on the bottom of the fork slider. Then pull the axle out making sure you take the spacers out and mark them where they go or make a drawing. You do not have to take the brake caliper off but sometimes it's better to do this.

Good Luck

I am having trouble changing the fork lock on my 2000 heritage soft tail.My ignition switch went bad so I bought a kit from my HD dealer. The kit came with switch, plastic plug, and fork lock. I changed...


Ok, this is what the service manual says.

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.
2. Loosen fork stem bolt. Let fork stem drop approx. 5 inches. (127mm)

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.
4. Unscrew 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.

Good Luck

How do I reassemble front forks of bike


Refer to this site, www.bikebandit.com for an exploded view of the front forks. Basically you must have the seals in the slider (lower part) and the damper tube in the upper fork tube. Then slide the upper fork tube down into the lower and install the bolt in very end of the slider. Then install the spring and top plug or put it in the triple trees and intstall the top cap. You'll have to put the appropiate amount of the correct weight oil in the tubes. The amount depends on what kind of forks they are. Since they've been taken apart, use the "dry" (as compared to 'wet") amount of oil.

Good Luck
