Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles

1 Answer

I am currently looking at a 1993 dyna wideglide that is for sale and I am interested in buying. I have it at my house now and was wondering how to check that the fluid levels ie. primary, transmission, and engine oils are good and at proper level. It has 17,000 miles on it and I was also wondering what you think it might be worth with everything in working order but not show worthy. Let me know

To check the engine oil, the oil cap in on the right hand side of the bike, near the top front of the transmission. It's a knurled cap about an inch and a half in diameter. Pull it up and it'll have a long plastic dipstick on it. The stick is marked. The upper mark should be labeled "FULL HOT" with the lower mark being labeled 'FULL COLD". Check this oil level with the bike on the side stand.

The transmission dipstick is on the right side of the bike in the clutch release cover of the transmission. Follow the clutch cable back to find the chromed cover. It usually takes a 3/8" hex key or Allen wrench to remove. It too has two marks on it. Check this fluid with the bike standing straight up.

To check the primary, you must remvove the derby cover. The oil level should be no higher than the lower part of the clutch spring. You should be able to see the oil in the primary.

As for the value of the bike, it's worth whatever you're willing to pay for it. But, to get a better idea, call either your local Harley dealer or a bank that finances motorcycles and ask for the "Average Retail Value" of the bike. Also for the "Loan Value" of the bike. The "Loan Value" is how much the bank will finance on the bike. Don't pay over the ARV and try to get it for as close to the LV as possible unless the bike is exceptional in some way.

How do i change the front fork oil in my 06 dyna wideglide

their is a Philip screw on the bottom of your fork remove it...and baby its in tight! some times its just easier to fit some vise grips on it. Will mar the screw head. But you can buy another one at HD..then unscrew the top of the fork. It takes a special tool or use a 1 inch wrench..Not common is average joe toolbox. Then you need to put 30 weight fork oil in ur bike. I dont have the amount off the top of my head i always look in service manual.

Battery not charging on95 dyna wideglide

Alternator or Regulator is bad. Pull the cover on the nosecone, and also see if any water, dirt, sludge, is in there. The gasket for the cover shrinks with age, and allows debris inside. This = Not good.

More than likely, though, the alternator has just seen the last of it's days, on the old girl.
