You'll have to count the number of links you need from the old chain. You may can use a "stock" number of links chain if you are sure your bike has 'stock" sprockets on it. If the sprockets have been changed, you may need more or fewer number of links. I'd order the longest one I could get and then cut the chain to length.

Good Luck

Hi Anonymous, Believe it or not 1979 XLH 1000 did not have an oil filter from the factory. They made an accessory kit you could purchase seperately and install yourself. Have nice day.

1979 Harley Sportster 1000 FX. When I change gears the shifter does not return to a middle position.Is this normal? or is ther a return spring that is broke or what?


You maybe correct, the pawl spring (one of them) may be broken or contaminated with gunge. Before delving in too deep, make sure the selector is free and lubricated.
Sorry to say, removal of the chain case and then remove the clutch assembly, primary chain and then after removing the final drive to the main drive chain, remove the gearbox. Replace the pawls and springs.

What is the size of drive chain I need for a 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000?


The chain size is a #530. Now the number of links varies depending on the size of the sprockets you have on the bike. Mark on of the links with "White Out" correction fluid and count the number of links you in the chain.

Good luck

My bike dosent change gears its stuck in nutral its a 79 ironhead i just cant figure it out


Rock the bike backwards and forwards while trying to shift the gears. If the lever moves up and down but the transmission does not shift, the shifter shaft in the transmission may be broken. When doing this test, make sure the final drive chain is on the bike.

Good Luck

80 harley flh acts like its stuck in neutral but


Have you checked the front final drive chain sprocket. These sprockets are quite often neglected since they are so difficult to get to. You must pull the inner prirmary to get to it. The old four speed transmission is a tough ****** and I don't recall ever seeing one fail unless it was run with no oil. Check your final drive chain. Shine a flashlight behind the inner primary and check the teeth on front sprocket.
