Oil drain plug for 2006 flhrs

The nut is a 5/8 socket, its almost directly under the seat on the bottom of the engine. Best to pull out the dipstick to drain the oil quicker. Use a new washer when you refit the sump plug to prevent leaks.

I have a 2006 roadking in bumper to bumper traffic engine gets hot and stalles it will start up but will not stay running unless you play with throttle

The injected bikes have a heat management system, that will make them skip a stroke from time to time in an attempt to cool the engine down, the hotter the engine gets the rougher the ride, if heavy traffic is a constant issue and you live in a warm climate area. there are parade fans available which blow air across the cylinders while at low speeds, most police bikes have these as they regularly are used un heavy traffic.

Replace handle bars on a 2006 HarleyDavidson RoadKing

I added a 2 inch riser to my dyna and didnt have to replace any cables, so - to answer your question, not always. There is plenty of wiggle room, however, if there is gonna be more difference that about 2 inches, replacement will be required. ADJUSTMENT WILL DEFINITELY be needed. And no, its not difficult, when u have the bars off, its nearly 1/2 done anyway
