Properly, remove inspection cover on left side case. the wheel is marked. TDC and the proper just before TDC I believe. with a timing light... adjust plate till you see the proper timing mark. IF IT IS TOTALLY STOCK hand, put the plate in the center of its adjustment... it will run there... you can adjust it slightly in either direction. usually it is slightly clockwise from center. when it starts right.. ride it. if it diesels.. back it off a little. it works.

If you have the old ignition module, try putting that back in and go from there. I would also check my fuses. and coil and see if you have spark.

Hard start backfires

IF it's an FXR then I would tell you to check your timing. The main reason they backfire is either the timing is off or the ign plate is starting to go.

Check the cam sensor. After a while when they get hot they don't want to work. It may be time for a new one.

The FXR had the same front fork tubes as the Sportster. Harley-Davidson Type "E" fork oil is recommended. The fluid capacity dry (after disassembly) is 6.4 ounces. The fluid capacity wet (drain and refill) is 5.4 ounces.

Good Luck

Want to get a service manual for a 1986 harley fxr low rider

The Harley FXR Super Glide Also known as FXRS turned in to the Dyna Lowrider, Either way the proper term Is FXRS. Non the less, Harley service manuals during that time was not year by year like it is today. Here is an example of the exact manual you will need.

You can maybe look on ebay or craigs list, though it may be more rare than we think.

Hope this helps.

1991 harley FXR won't start; replaced bad starter. it still won't start

- If the starter is turning the motor , I dont understand why u replaced the relay and the ignition....but - thats water under the bridge now .... Open the primary and check the jack shaft... put a pliers on it - pull it out and turn it 1/4 turn a few times - make sure its not binding. Take a look at the bushing on the outer primary.... may need to bevel the edges a little. Make sure the battery is charged enough to give the engine a few strong turns. Let me know what you find
