New Drive Sprockets for the late model FLHX

Hey guys, when is HD going to manufactuer a chrome drive sprocket for the 2009 FLHX? When you go to a 2 into 1 exhaust the left side is a little bare and the sprocket shows a little. Well for nuts like me it does. I've even considered having the stock one chromed! If anyone has heard of one going on sale let me know.

No, But they do offer a real nice chrome cover for them. Much less expensive than chrome plate. You can get one at your local Harley dealer or most any cycle shop can order you one from aftermarket supplies like Custom Chrome or Drag Specialties.

How can the drive and driven sprockets be aligned?


Hi Charles
I'd be looking at the positioning of the rear axle. A small change in the angle could line up the sprockets.
If the rim is centred in the frame right next to the pedal sprocket, the sprockets should be in alignment. If they are not, I'd be thinking that the frame has been bent, and be trying to figure out where, and how to straighten it.
Odds are that one of the cycle shops would have a quick look and give some advice. Those guys are usually really great with helping keep riding enjoyable.

How do you get balance shaft drive sprockets off?


You need to remove the balance shafts first. Be VERY careful or you will end up breaking off the tab that the small hold down bolt goes through. You need to remove this little bolt first of course. I found that using a pry bar on the bottom of the sprocket itself seemed to work best.
Once you have the balance shaft out, clamp it in a vise using wood or something similar so that you do not damage any if the surface that rides on the bearing. Then remove the 15 mm bolt holding the gear (sprocket) on. Re-install the new gear and torque to 37 ft-lbs. The new gear is slotted so it can only go on one way. Do not mix up the intake & exhaust balance shaft gears. Good luck.

I have a 2009 Yamaha V-Star 1300 Tourer. I hear a chirping sound down around the drive belt.


Hi, Anonymous belt squeaking or chirping or buzzing or singing are sounds that make up the orchestra of "Belt Music" these noises are caused by a variety of conditions that can usually be corrected ie. belt tension too loose, swing arm alignment no true, warped or loose sprockets and bent sprocket guards, but the majority of music is mainly caused by miles and miles of heat build up from the engine, transmission, and sprockets transferring that heat to the drive belt, and over time the sides of the belt will become crystallized/glazed into a finish that is harder than "Chicken Lips" and everyone knows that "Chicken Lips" are harder than diamonds. This is the reason your brakes squeak. There are many home remedies out there, fan belt spray, rubbing a bar of soap on the sides, Dupont Teflon Lubricant, grease, silicone spray, WD-40 etc. etc. these are no more than Band-Aids and the noise just comes back in a couple of days, You must remove the "Chicken Lips" The first and most important thing you can do are align the belt in the sprockets so that it tracks dead center not rubbing up against the sprocket guard this may require using shims on the front and rear sprockets, while the belt is off, check the teeth for being broken-cracked-missing, check the sprockets for having square teeth instead of rounded teeth, if any of these conditions exist, replace the belt and both sprockets. If everything looks ok then place the belt on its side and with a drill or die grinder install a 2-3 inch velcro sanding pad with a ScotchBrite disc, gently dust both sides of the belt to remove the shiny crystallized glaze the surface will become dull once the fresh material is exposed. Reinstall the shimmed sprockets and reconditioned belt and adjust the tension with no rider on board to 5/16-3/8" up and down with 10lbs. of force, I have had excellent results with this method and it is cheaper than buying a $300 new belt. Again the key to this procedure is "BELT ALIGNMENT" you need to keep the sides of the belt away from the sprocket guards.

How do i set camshafts on 1999 duvil northstar


Remove camshaft covrs
Remove front cover
Remove or fully retract all three timing chain tensioners
Remove oil pump
Primary and secondary chain guides should remain in place. Rotate crankshaft until sprocket drive key is at about 1 o'clock position.
Set crankshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets into primary drive chain with their timing marks asjacent to each other.
Install crankshaft and intermediate sprockets over their respective shafts. Rotating crankshaft as necessary to engage crankshaft key in sprocket without changing the timing mark relationship.
Install Flywheel Holder Tool (J-39411) to lock crankshaft in position. Install intermediate shaft sprocket retaining bolt and torque to specifications.
Route secondary chain for left cylinder head over inner row of intermediate shaft teeth.
Route secondary drive chain over chain guide, and install exhaust cam sprocket to chain so camshaft drive pin engages the sprocket notch marked "LE" (Left Exhaust).
There dhould be no slack in the lower section of the chain, and the camshaft drive pin must be perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.
Install the intake camshaft sprocket into the chain so the sprocket notch marked "LI" (Left Intake) engages camshaft drive pin, while drive pin remains perpendicular to the head face. Minor adjustments can be made to camshaft position to get pin to engage by using a wrench on the hex cast into the camshaft.
Install sprocket retainer bolts and torque to specification.
Repet steps as above to install the right secondary chain to the right camshafts. The right camshaft sprockets are marked "RE" and "RI". In addition, the RE sprocket must contain the camshaft position sensor pickup.

SUZUKI INTRUDER 125, WHICH CHAIN SHOULD I BUY


the chain type is 428. take chain off and count # of links.give those 2 #s to parts guy. when you replace a worn chain,the front and rear sprockets should be replaced at the same time, because worn sprockets and a new chain will cause accelerated chain wear. count # of teeth on sprockets & give those 2#s to the parts guy also. if you want a longer wearing chain, buy one w/ the highest tensile strength,once again, parts guy can help you find that.dont forget,lube & adjust chain as needed.
