Front shocks are vary soft. drained and filled to spec


If the dampening action is still to soft for you, you'll have to drain the forks again and this time put a heavier weight oil in them. If you put 20 wt. oil in last time, try 30 wt. this time. Always use a good quality "fork oil" never just plain engine oil.

The front forks go down to far on my fxst 2004 nightrain


If you are saying that your front suspension is too soft, you can change the fork oil in the front forks to a heavier viscosity. I think Harley recommends Type E fork oil. I've found that PJB 30 wt. fork oil works best for me.

Since I'm not familiar with the newer forks, I'll have to recommend that you ask the dealer how to drain and refill the forks and how much oil to put back in them. There are usually two amounts of oil to put in the forks. One amount is a "dry" amount to add when you disassemble the forks and then refill them. The "wet" amount is for when you simply drain the forks and then refill them. Naturally, the "wet" amount will be less than the "dry" amount.

Sorry I couldn't give you more information but my expertise is the earlier model Harley bikes.

Good Luck

I have chrome front forks and they seem to be getting mushy and make a clicking noise when I stop hard


The "clicking" noise you are hearing when you make a "hard stop", is the springs inside the fork compressing. This is not unusual. You can change your fork oil viscosity to stiffen the forks but they may be too stiff once you've done it, The only way to tell is try it.

There is a small screw or bolt on the down low on the fork lower slider. Take this screw out and work the front end up and down, The fork oil will be pumped out the front end. This makes a terrible mess so don't do it in your living room.

Once you have the oil out of the front end, it's best to lift the bike off the ground. Remove the top cap from each tube and refill the fork tubes with the proper amount of oil for a "wet" oil change. Sorry but I don't have that information but it will be somewhere around 10.2 ounces. Check to make sure for your year model. I put 30 wt. fork oil in my FXDWG and the forks are a bit stiff but that's how I like them. Try it and if it's too stiff, you'll just have to change it back to say 20wt or maybe Honda might have a 25 wt. oil. Do one side of the forks at a time.

Front suspension must be refilled with oil, how to do it?


There is a drain plug at the bottom of each fork. Just drain them and put the plugs back in then take the caps off the top of each and put in the propper amount of fork oil. You will need actual fork oil, so when you get it ask the shop how many cc's of oil to put in each fork.
