Change fork oil street bob 2007


To change the oil or to rebuild a 2007 DYNA front fork FIRST raise and support the motorcycle so that the front end is off the floor and the forks are fully extended, remove the brake caliper and the front wheel, remove the front fender, loosen the pinch bolt screws, do not remove the tube caps, slide the fork sides downward clear of the fork brackets, repeat the procedure for the opposite fork tube and slider assembly.

To disassemble a 2007 DYNA front fork clamp the fork tube and slider assembly in a fork tube holder tool mounted horizontally in a vise, use a 12mm Allen wrench is needed to loosen but do not remove the seat pipe screw, while the internal components are still under tension and less prone to rotate, on the right fork tube and slider assembly, remove the axle holder to access the seat pipe screw, remove the fork tube cap and its o-ring, remove the long spring collar, remove the fork assembly from the fork tube holder tool and invert it over a suitable container to catch the fork oil and allowing thefork to drain, extend and retract the slider several times to push oil out of the internal fork components, the washer, and the spring will fall out of fork tube. THEN clamp the fork tube in the fork tube holder tool, remove the slider cover from the slider by inserting a brass drift into the notch in the slider and lightly tapping the cover loose, compress the stopper ring and remove the stopper ring from the groove in the top of the slider bore, Do not remove slider tube caps without relieving the spring preload or the caps and springs may fly out. THEN remove the seat pipe screw and its washer from the bottom of the slider and retain them for reuse, withdraw the slider from the fork tube until the bushing guide contacts the bushing on the fork tube (the bushing guide is a slight interference fit in the slider), then using the slider as a slide hammer, hit the bushing with the bushing guide with a quick continuous stroke until the slider is pulled free from the fork tube, drain the slider and allow the stop oil lock piece to fall free. (If you are only changing the oil or replacing the slider the remaining parts can be left assembled and the fork re-assembled) If it is still attached to the seat pipe remove the stop oil lock piece from the lower end of the seat pipe, remove the seat pipe piston and the ring assembly, remove the rebound spring, remove the oil seal, remove the seal spacer, and remove the bushing guide. Repeat the foregoing procedure for the opposite fork tube and slider assembly.

Thoroughly clean and inspect each part and if and as necessary replace any corroded, worn, bent, broken or otherwise damaged parts, inspect the fork tube bushing and the slider guide bushing and replace if and as required, always replace all oil seals and all o-rings, check the dust cover where it rubs on the fork tube (it should have a good and continuous seal and not show excessive wear, check the fork tube where it rubs on dust the cover and the tube should show a bright, shiny surface, free of scoring or abrasions, if any spring(s) is/are broken they must be replaced, if a fork tube or slider is bent or damaged it must also be replaced now, replace all other worn or damaged components if and as necessary.

To assemble a 2007 DYNA fork FIRST insert the seat pipe assembly with the spring into the slider tube, slide the bushing guide down to the bushing on the fork tube, follow it with the spacer, the oil seal, the stopper ring, the dust shield and the slider cover, install the fork tube into the fork tube holder tool, fit the lower stop onto the seat pipe, slide the seat pipe back into the fork tube until the seat pipe is centered in the tube, gently install the slider assembly onto the slider tube and the bushing, thread the seat pipe screw and washer into the seat pipe through the bottom of the slider assembly, draw the fastener into the seat pipe but do not tighten it at this time, verify the proper action of the fork by moving the slider up and down the fork tube, locate the appropriate fork seal driver over the fork tube in front of the oil seal with the fork seal chamfered lips facing the oil in the fork, in the following order assemble thetop oil seal, the spacer and the bushing guide into the slider bore, install the stopper ring into its groove above the oil seal, push the dust seal against the oil seal and stopper ring, rotate the slider cover to match any removal burrs to the notch in the slider and snap the slider cover into place. THEN operate the slider through its full range of travel several times to verify alignment and proper smooth operation, then pulling down on the slide to apply downward force on the rebound spring, tighten the seat pipe screw to 106-159 in-lbs (12-18 Nm), vertically re-position the fork tube into the fork tube holder tool and with the slider tube compressed, fill the fork with Harley-Davidson TYPE E FORK OIL until it is approximately the amount specified below for the type or motorcycle and fork that it is.

a. FXDWG- approximately 29.6 oz (875 cc) and distance from the top of the fork tube = 4.4 in (112 mm); and
b. All other Dyna models- approximately 26.6 oz (787 cc) and distance from the top of the fork tube = 4.3 in (110 mm)
THEN slowly pump the slider 8 to 10 times to remove air from the fork assembly and fully compress the slider to properly measure the oil level which is measured from the top of the fork tube, with the spacer and the spring removed and the fork fully compressed, then using an appropriate oil level gauge tool adjust the oil level to appropriate level for the fork type and model, pull out the slider and install the spring in the fork tube with the tightly wound end at the bottom, install the washer and the spring collar, carefully to avoid cross threading, install the fork tube cap with a new o-ring and tighten it to 16-43 ft-lbs (22-58 Nm). Repeat the process for the other fork tube and slider assembly.

To install the fork in a 2007 DYNA FIRST insert the fork tube and the slider assemblies up through the lower triple clamp and the upper triple clamp so that the fork tubes will protrude above the upper triple clamp 0.450-0.500 in. (11.4-12.7 mm) with the measurement taken at the midpoint of the fork tube between the top surface of the triple clamp and the top of the fork cap and when properly positioned tighten the pinch bolts to 30-35 ft-lbs (41- 48 Nm), install the front fender and bracket, install the front brake caliper(s), install the front wheel and align the wheel to the forks.

How do i get in to change spark plug behind radiator


NO... remove the seat, then the gas tank. They can be tricky to get to and you need a socket extender but you get to them from the top. Use pre spaced fuses to make your life easier. Also apply a little motor oil on the threaded area before replacing them. Makes removing them a lot easier the next time.
I recommend doing an oil change at the same time.

Instructions
    • 1 Remove the motorcycle's carburetor and clean it with carburetor cleaner, getting rid of any and all grime and deposits within. If necessary, use an air compressor with a small tip to blow out any clogged lines within the carburetor.
    • 2 Check the motorcycle's fuel tank for old fuel. Drain the fuel tank completely and refill the tank with fresh fuel. Old gasoline isn't good for most motors, especially older ones.
    • 3 Remove the motorcycle's seat by unscrewing the two mounting bolts on both sides of the back of the seat with a 12 mm socket wrench. Pop off the top of the air box and remove the bike's air filter. Clean this thoroughly in hot, soapy water. Rinse it off, let it air-dry then apply air filter oil before reinstalling it in the motorcycle.
    • 4 Check the tire pressure and integrity of both tires on the motorcycle. If either tire is flat, leaking air or overly worn, replace the tire and tube.
    • 5 Change the motorcycle's oil. Warm the bike up, then remove the oil drain plug underneath the transmission and drain the oil. While the drain plug is still loose, fill the oil reservoir until oil begins to run out of the plug. This means the reservoir is full. Tighten the drain plug.

How to check engine oil in scooty pep plus


Locate the oil dipstick which will be made of black plastic with a raised lip for turning. The dipstick will either be under the seat on the top of the engine or on the lower side of the engine. Once located, unscrew and wipe off excessive oil. Reinsert dipstick but do not screw it in, then remove the dipstick and hold it horizontal to read the level, which should be between the two marks on the end. If the oil level is near the bottom mark, add enough oil to increase it as close to the top mark without exceeding the top mark.

Cant find my oil pressure switch on my 2003 chevy express


you'll need to remove the doghouse, the cover over the engine in the passenger compartment. Sometimes you have to remove one of the front seats to get it out.

The oil pressure switch/sending unit will be just to the drivers side of the distributor.

How do I remove the seat from a 2003 softail heritage classic?


There should be a screw/bolt on top of the rear fender holding the seat back down, and there should be a bolt on each side on the frame near where the seat dips down on the sides near the oil tank. The side bolts were hex heads last I knew to help ID them.

I have a nissan largo year 1996 where the engine oil top up is ! how to empy old engine oil ! many thanks gary


If it is like my 1995 largo van which is a 2.4litre petrol engine, the dip stick is found under the passenger seat, and the topup /filler point is accessed by removing a small panel about the size of A5 paper, on the slope of the centre consul, (with the passenger seat lifted) about beside where the gear lever is. there is probably only 1 wing screw that holds it in place.

How to access top of motor on toyota 1995 previa


There is a hatch under the driver's and passenger's seats. The driver's seat hinges up to access the oil dipstick and throttle body. The passenger seat must be removed to access the hatch below it. Sounds difficult, but there are only 4 bolts to remove.

Toro sprewing oil


The filler spout tube may have pulled out of its seat push and twist to reinsert it down. if the oil is over filled you must drain some out to return it to its correct oil level, if it did pull out of its seat the small bolt holding the filler tube in place may have loosened up and fallen off it must be replaced if this happened.
