This is a major job. It requires that the entire primary drive, including the engine compensator sprocket, primary chain, clutch assembly, inner primary cover, and starter be removed from the engine. The rear wheel will also have to come out. Luckily, the way the Dyna frame is designed, you won't have to pull the swing arm off to change the belt, just remove the left shock absorber. You will need a torque wrench(es) that will retorque the engine sproket nut to 150-165 foot pound and the clutch assembly nut to 60-80 foot pound in the LEFT HANDED direction. You'll also need some way to lock the primary up while you apply these torques. We use a locking bar to do this which is simply a bar long enough to properly place in the teeth on the engine sprocket and the clutch drum to lock the assembly up while applying the torque. The engine does not have enough compression to all for the application of this amount of torque.

Here again, this is quite an involved job. I would suggest that you purchase a H-D service manual. It's far too involved for me to give you step by step instructions via this forum.

BTW: You didn't mention why you wanted to change the final drive belt. I wouldn't mess with changing it until I noticed cracks forming along the inside lugs or they started breaking off. The job is difficult and the belt is EXPENSIVE. I've seen these belts run 50-60K miles with no problem.

SOURCE: how to change oil in 2003 HD FXD Dyna Super Glide

remove the drain plug from the oil pan, you will need either a 3/4" box wrench or a 5/8" box wrench and the drain plug will be facing forward on the the oil pan. It is easiest to remove this drain plug from under the right side of the bike. put drain plug back in after about 10 m,inutes of drain time and tighten to 18 ft. lbs. Dont forget to change the oil filter as well.

SOURCE: any video, pictures or manuel

I don't know of any video available and written manuals are the best. You can get an original manual here. They are worth the extra cost. If you're going to install the final belt yourself, you'll pay for the book with that job and then some.

Now, there are some special tools that you will need. These are covered in the book as well.

Good Luck
