Where is the oil plug drain located on a 2010 harley wide glide ?


The oil drain plug for your Wide Glide is located on the bottom of the transmission as the oil tank is in this location. The oil drain plug is usually located at the right front of the oil pan.

How much trouble is it to change front fork seals on a 2000 wide glide and do you have instructions on it?


If, notice I said "if", your bike has the standard 41mm wide glide front end, changing the fork seals is not that difficult.

Get the bike up off the ground on a stable lift. Safety is paramount.

Now take the front wheel and fender off. Take the large "Bolt" out of one of the fork tubes at the upper triple tree. There are special sockets made to do this with so that you won't scratch your chrome upper tree. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Put some lubricant on the fork tube and work it down and out of the triple trees. You may have to spead the lower triple tree by driving a chisel into the slot from the bottom side.

Once you have one of the fork tubes out. Remove the plug at the top. There will be a large spring under the plug. Usually it doesn't have much pressure on it with the tube fully extended and if it's the stock spring. With the plug and the spring out, you can pour the oil out of the tube. Notice which direction the spring comes out of the tube. I must go back in with the tapered end down.

Look on the bottom of the tube where the axle goes through. You'll see an allen head or socket head bolt in there. It' should be an 8mm sized bolt but it takes a "piloted" hex key. Now, you can use a standard hex key but it must be in new condition since the bolt head is so shallow. I have found that a hex key socket used with an air wrench is best to get the screw out. With the screw, you can now seperate the upper fork tube from the lower slider.

Remove the retainer ring in the top of the slider and pry out the old seal. Install the new seal in the proper direction. Reassemble the fork assembly. Now, add the proper amount of oil to the tube before you install the upper plug. The forks take 10.2 to 11.2 ounces of oil each. The lower figure is for a "Wet" refill and the higher number is for a "Dry" refill. If you take your fork tube apart and pour out all the oil, use the "dry" figure of 11.2 ounces type "E" or 30 weight fork oil. If the forks are too stiff with this oil, drop back to 20 weight fork oil.

Good Luck
Steve

I need exact location of oil drain plug


the oil tank for the wide glide is on the bottom of the transmission. If you look under the transmission, you'll see two drain plugs. the one at the front left is the oil drain plug. The one closer to the center of the oil pan is the transmission drain plug.

Fork needs charging how do I go about it?I need to put new seals and fluid in the left side fork. How do I go about it?


Start by lifting the bike off the ground and making sure it is steady and won't fall over. Remove the front wheel and front fender. Make sure you keep up with where each spacer goes.

Loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree. Take the large "nut" off the top of the fork tube at the upper triple tree. At this point, the fork leg should start to slide downward out of the triple trees. But, most of the time they won't. Take a small chisel and locate the slot on the lower triple tree. Drive the chisel into the slot from beneath to spread the clamp. Make sure the clamp bolt is all the way out or at least very loose to allow the triple tree to expand. You can use a brass drift to help drive the fork leg down from the top. Use plenty of oil to help it slide.

Once you have the fork leg out, you can drain the fluid by either removing the drain plug on the lower slider and pumping the fluid out or simply take the top cap out of the tube. When you take the top cap out of the tube, the large sping in the tube will push the cap up. I don't think it will be too strong to get back in. On the earlier models, they weren't. With the top cap off, take the spring out and pour the old fluid out. Look at the lower slider where the axle goes through, you'll see a hex head bolt. Use an 8mm hex key to remove the bolt. This is a special piloted key. You can use a regular hex key but it must be in very good shape. I'd recommend using one with an air wrench. Once you get the bolt out, simply pull the upper tube out of the lower slider.

Replace the seal in the lower slider and reassemble in reverse order. Make sure you install the large spring with the tapered end down. Refill with the appropiate amount of fluid for a "dry" fork tube. I used 30 weight fluid in mine but that may be too stiff for you. If so, 20 weight is the next common. Honda may have a 25 weight fluid. Honda has some wierd fork oil weights.

Good Luck

Fork seal replacement on 82 yamaha 750 seca


On the top and bottom parts of the triple tree either both or one will have bolts. First take the fender off. Take the front tire off. Loosen the bolts on the triple tree. They should slide down. If not you have to get a rubber mallet and tap on the top of the fork and twist the fork as you are doing this. Once it is out, pull the dust seal off the top of the lower fork. There will be a clip inside, take the clip off drain the oil out of the top or bottom depending on how the forks are made. Push the fork tube down into the lower fork slightly, pull both apart with a firm tug and they should separate.

FXRS CONV -INSTALL TRIPLE TREES TO MAKE A WIDE GLIDE FRONT END


As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.
