2001 Harley Heritage softail has a squeaking sound at idle but only after the engine is hot!

Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry but I just loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Good luck and have a nice day.

Sounds like it's tripping the main circuit breaker. It is located on the rear splash gaurd. I would try replacing it first before tracking down a short, they do go bad over time and is pretty common. Make sure the connections are clean and tight. Good luck!

The jets in your carburetors are restricted from fuel sitting in bike and turning to varnish. The color change on the pipes is an indication of the bike running excessively lean due to insufficient fuel. You will need to remove, clean and adjust the carburetors.

What's the proper oil level on the dip stick for my springer softail harley and do I check the oil when it's hot or cold.

check when oil is hot(let idle for about 10 mins, or a short ride),level sould be about halfway between marks on stick. your bike only holds about 3 and 1/2 quarts including the filter, pour small amount at a time when topping off.

Hello, I have an 07 Springer Softail. My problem is that the front end is stiff, really movement at all. I took the shock off and it seems fine. It's like the front end is a rigid.

If your bike responds normally while riding upon the road and if during front braking the springs directly behind the headlight "extend" and "relax" in a "normal" fashion then you aren't experiencing any difficulties/problems. Springer front ends should only be adjusted or serviced by very qualified personnel as the spring pressures exerted by a springer assembly can seriously injure untrained persons.

Gas has most likely gummed up in the carb over winter and you should spend a few $$$ on a can of carb cleaner and get some of the gunky gas clogging the Jets outta the carb. If you need to find out how to clean the carb, first find out what kind of carb it is. Then you could find a video on youtube er somthing of a similar carb and then clean it out. thats what was wrong with my scooter and it fired right up after that.
