Question about Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy Motorcycles
You don't need to download any information, just use your head. Taking the rear tire off is simple and putting it back on is simple with a bit of knowledge.
First loosen the axle nut. On the adjusters on either side of the axle, loosen each of them and allow the wheel slide towards the front. Now, start pulling out the axle. Depending on which way the axle was put in, different things will come out. Watch for various spacers. Make sure you mark the spacers and make a drawing of where they go and in what direction they go in. The will be one the belt side of the wheel. The brake bracket is on the other side. there are usually one short one on each side that goes into the wheel bearing seals as well. Once you have the axle out, work the belt off the rear pulley and get the wheel out from under the bike. You may have some belt guards that need to come off as well.
When you put the wheel back on, it's simply the opposite of taking it off. Now, you must adjust the rear wheel and belt tension. Measure the adjuster bolts one each side of the wheel. They must be as close to being the same as possible to ensure the wheel is straight in the swing arm. Adjust the belt so you have about a half inch up and down movement with ten pounds of upward force applied in the center of the lower run on the belt. If you don't get the belt tight enough, it'll usually make a "squeak" sound every time you shift gears.
