Installing ignition knob on 1993 Ultra

I have a new knob with keys. It did not come with collar/spacer. Found old collar/spacer in saddle bags (just bought bike) but don't know how the collar/spacer go on before installing the knob. Does the ear on the spacer go on the top or bottom.

How do I find the year my bike was made?

Look on plastic parts like underneath the saddle. Just as with cars, there might be a calendar dial showing the year and an arrow pointing to the month engraved on the plastic. To allow for assembly time, the year might be one later than printed on the plastic. Just keep in mind that plastic components might have been replaced through the life of the bike.

20029802-x4ti4kd13pz3emz5huheloyd-1-0.jpg Attached is the date stamp found on the bottom plastic cover of the saddle on my Dahon bike. I bought the bike brand new in 2015 and according to the stamp the bike was assembled with the saddle of '13. So we can quite accurately say the bike is a '13+1 (2014) model.

I put a new front tire on and cant remember which way the spacers on the front wheel go. Anybody help!!!!

You can visit and look up your bike. This may help. Use the disc brake caliper as a guide. If you put a spacer on one side and the disc does not align with the caliper, try the other spacer. That's the best I can tell you since I don't know what year or model bike you're working on.

Good Luck

How do I fit saddlebag supports?

Would help to know mak and model.

Presuming that the supports you have are matched to the bike you have, you should find a couple of nuts on the back mudguard (Probably holding some chrome work in place if it is a cruiser). That are the same spacing as the holes in your saddle bag supports. The nuts, when removed should be long enough to go through the saddle bag supports and back into the mudguard frame. You MAY need to buy extended nuts to get the reach to go through the support, chrome work and frame. Order of things to go through: Nut through saddle bag support first, then original chrome then into screm socket in the mudguard. If it's NOT a cruiser and the above doesn't work, please come back and tell me the model of the bike.

How do you adjust the height of the handle bars?

What kind of stem are we talking about. Modern stems are not adjustable other than to add or remove spacers under them or flip the whole thing over for a drastic change. Once cut to length the stem adjustment is very limited as you can't really get away with adding spacers for additional height. Beyond its current physical limitations you would probably need a different stem.

Here's a great resource that explains old-school and newer stems.

I bought a new seat for my 1996 Fuji Sagres. The old saddle clamp is too narrow for the new seat rails. Where can I buy a different sized saddle clamp that will fit my bike?

take it to a bike shop and get a new seatpost. bike shops
have manuals that they can check to find a seat post that
fits the bike frame and has the proper size rails to fit your
new saddle.
this is a good time to upgrade the seatpost, you can get one
that is lighter and more adjustable that your old one.

I would like to install saddlebags on my 2005 Springer classic (FLSTSC). I am looking at the 90058-05 saddlebags. Will I need another kit or hardware to install the saddlebags? What is difference between...

We ride the same bike as you and had the saddle bikes fitted when we first bought the bike new. Yes, you will definately need a fitting kit, you do with all the bags, however be very careful about what bags you buy. We have the original 'money bag' shaped bags which were particularly designed for the bike and to match the saddle. The were very expensive and were the biggest waste of money ever! They are so impractical if you have a set of wet gear in each side they are full to bursting and the small opening at the top makes them very awkward. Just last year Harley bought out a new, bigger, set, I don't know what the top opening is like but it has to be better than the ones we have, we are even considering swapping to the new ones as we tour quite a lot.
Hope this helps.

Seat removal

The strap that goes around the seat bolts to the fender under the fender it's self or to the sides near the front of the fender struts or behind the saddle bags if you have them.
They are usually held on by either an allen bolt or a capped hex bolt.
If it is attached under the seat it is held by 1 bolt through both ends to 1 hole.

Try looking under your seat. A lot bikes/atvs carry them under the seat. It feels hard to lift them up but there is usually a lever to release it just at the tip of the seat near the gas tank. Being an older bike more than likely it has been removed especially if it was purchased used. Cabela's has kits for about 50.00. You can log onto their website at Search the site along the left side of the page it is very easy.

Looking for sportster hard saddle bag installation instructions

nstructions Difficulty: Moderate Things You’ll Need: Step1 Determine what type of saddlebags you will be installing on your motorcycle. Saddlebags come in hard and soft styles, with each installed in basically the same manner. Hard bags tend to offer more security for your items but are a bit on the bulky side, while soft bags offering a little more flexibility. Step2 Check to make sure that your fender bolt area is clean and prepped for installation of your saddlebags. Both hard and soft saddlebags on Harley Davidsons are installed over the fender bolt area on the rear of the motorcycle, so clearing this area of debris and grime will keep it free of scratches and blemishes. Step3 Install any spacers or lifting brackets before you try and place your bags on your Harley Davidson. These spacers will keep you bags from resting against your exhaust pipes and will avoid damage to your motorcycle and to the bags themselves. Make sure they are installed tightly and spaced properly before mounting your bags. Step4 Open the saddle bag packaging and lay out the included hardware. The hardware will be necessary to properly mount your saddlebags to your fenders, so be sure that you do not misplace it. If your saddle bag comes with a fender mounting bracket, install it along the fender before proceeding. This bracket will be used to hold and stabilize your saddlebags, so it is essential that it is properly tightened and installed. Step5 Hold your saddle bag up to the fender and align the bolt holes in the saddle bag with the bolt area on the fender. Your saddle bag will have mounting holes in the side of the bag that will align with the mounting bracket. Place one of the bolts in the hole and tighten to hold it on. Put the remaining bolt in place and tighten them both securely once they are aligned correctly. Step6 Repeat this process with the remaining saddle bag. The bags should align evenly and be attached straight to avoid any imbalances or shifting while the motorcycle is in motion. Try and wiggle or move the bags to be sure your bolts are tight enough to prevent movement. Step7 Take your Harley Davidson for a short ride. Stop and check the fitting on your saddlebags and look at your bolts. Make sure nothing has moved during your ride and that all of your fittings remain tight. With just a bit of effort, your new saddlebags will make your Harley Davidson the envy of the neighborhood.

How to adjust saddle postions

you can loosen the bolt under the saddle, and adjust it...

for me, the best saddle position for long distance is when it's facing downwards a little bit, so that you can move your legs freely.
