Hi, Cindy the magic number is 100 ft. lbs. make sure the belt has the proper tension and is aligned perfectly in the swing arm to avoid walking against the pulley side skirts for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can not find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Rear belt replacement 2002 heritage softail classic


Replacing the rear belt on your Softail is quite a job. In order to do this, you must pull the entire primary drive system. That includes, the outer cover, the compensator sprocket, clutch assembly, starter, exhaust system (to get to the starter) and the inner primary. Then, you must take the rear wheel off, and then the swingarm has to come out. If you have to pull the front belt pulley to check the pulley for wear in the splines or to replace a leaky seal, you'll need some special tools in addition to the torque wrenches that you'll need to do everything else with. It is a major job. That's why it's not a cheap job if you have it done at the dealership. If you decide to attempt the job yourself, I strongly suggest that you purchase a service manual and read up what needs to be done and how to do it.

Good Luck
Steve

How do I get the rear tire off of my 1999 heritage softtail classic.


Jack the bike up off the ground. Remove the axle nut and the belt guards. You might want to loosen the belt tensioning bolts and allow the front wheel to move forwards just a bit. Drive the axle out. You may have to take your muffler off so the axle will come out. When you put the axle back in, start from the left side of the bike and have the nut behind the muffler. Make sure you mark and make a drawing of what spacer goes where. You should have three as best as I can remember. One is a long spacer and two short ones. The short ones go in the wheel bearings and the long one goes on the belt pulley side. Lower the wheel and allow it to roll forward a bit. Jack the bike up a bit higher and work the drive belt off the drive pulley. Tip the wheel over and jack the bike up until you can get the wheel out.

good Luck

REPLACINGTHE REAR TIRE ON A HARLEY DAVIDSON 2008 HERITAGE SOFTAIL


Down and dirty way - take it to the dealer and have them install a new tire....

The hard way: place bike on bike jack and remove rear wheel by removing the axle nut and drifting the axle out of the wheel. Derail the belt/chain and drop the wheel out of the brake caliper. Remove valve stem to deflate the tire. Get a set of tire spoons and a 12 pack of COLD brew cause working with tire spoons is no FUN! Pry the bead loose with one spoon and the work your way around the wheel prying the tire beed to the outside of the wheel. Repeat this process for the back side of the tire (in the same direction as the first side so the tire will come off the wheel. Reverse and repeat to install new tire.

By now you will be loading your wheel into the truck and heading to the HD shop. It just really isn't worth the hastle to save the $25 or so to have this job done.

Align wheel with new tire on it with the brake caliper so that you have one shoe on each side of the rotor (you may have to actually remove the caliper if your pads are thick. Install your belt drive/chain drive and then lift the wheel to insert the axle through the swing arm, the chain tensioner and wheel. Reverse
on the other side. Place axle nut on axle and torque to about 80lbs.

Good to go.

Replacing tires need procedure and torque on a 2004 softail


You will pretty much need a tire machine to remove the old tires and put on fresh ones. Torque depends on the model of your bike.

Most front axle nuts are torqued to 65 foot pounds. The same applies to the rear wheel on most models except touring (FLH series) which usually are torqued to 105 foot pounds.
