SOURCE: replace handle bars

Mine had wiring inside the bars as well. Basically I removed the controls from the bars, and removed the 2 bolts holding the handle bars on. I removed the RIGHT side gas tank after draining it. I intended on cutting the wires to the connectors, pulling the wires out of the old handle bars, and pulling them back through the new bars. Note: Mark the black wires very carefully, since there were 5 black wires in the two connectors and they are all unique wires. The colored wires were easy, just match them back up. Several tricks I found on line. Use a string and a bolt to fish a pull line down through the new bars then pull the wire bundle through. This worked great on both left and right wire bundles. I then bolted the new handle bars in place and remounted the controls. I then replaced the shrink tubing up the bundles that hid the actual wires as they came out of the handle bars down to where I cut the connector wires, behind the right side tank. Next I stripped and tinned all the wires I cut (twist and get a little solder to stick on the wires) and stuck little pieces of shrink tubing up or down the wire so after I resoldered the wire I could shrink the insulation back over the splice. I picked up the shrink tubing and some extra wire a home depot. I had a soldering iron, and heat gun so away I went connecting the dots again. Litte tedious but hey. It saved me somewhere between $500 -$700 bucks which is what the harley shop quoted before I started. I tested each function, then reinstalled the gas tank and tightened up all the stuff. Below is the pin out in case you do loose a wire marker, like I did. Good Luck.

SOURCE: installing handlegrips

Instructions Difficulty: Easy Things You’ll Need:

  • Razor blade OR Air compressor
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Glue cleaner
  • Soft cotton towel or cloth
  • Warm water
  • Pro taper grip glue
Step1 Decide which method you want to use to remove your old motorcycle grips. There are three methods in which you can use. The quickest would be with a razor blade. However, if you fear scratching the chrome or wires are underneath the grips, this may not be the best choice. An air compressor can help slide the motorcycle grips off with ease. However, if they are attached with adhesive, you may need to loosen the glue. A flat-head screwdriver may be your best bet with wires and glue. You can ease the screwdriver between the grip and the bar and pry it up gently without cutting wires or damaging the chrome. Step2 Pop off the bar end of the motorcycle handle. With a flat-head screwdriver, this should be simple. Be careful not to damage these pieces. The threads must be in tack to put them back on. If they become damaged, you will need to replace them. Step3 Using the desired method in step 1, remove the old motorcycle grips. Step4 Clean the old glue from the handle. This can be accomplished with any type of glue cleaner and a little elbow grease. When the glue has been removed, dry the handlebar completely with a soft cloth towel. Step5 Soak your new motorcycle grips in warm water to loosen them up a little bit. This will make it easier to install the grips quickly. Step6 Use your grip glue. You will want to add this around your handlebar where the grip will be placed. You will want to do this one side at a time. There are several methods that are recommended for this task. However, Pro Taper Glue seems to be the most recommended. Step7 Slide the motorcycle grips on each side. When they were soaked in warm water, it will be simpler to slide them on. Again, do one side first, then the other. Step8 Remove the excess glue and water with your cotton towel. This will clean up any mess left behind and give your motorcycle a pristine look. Step9 Let the glue dry for at least a couple of hours. The recommend time can be found on the glue of your choice. Step10 Replace the bar end gently. Be sure to screw it in until it cannot pop off again.

SOURCE: Oil change directions, 2003 Road King

The drain plug is on the left side of the oil reservoir pointing towards the front of the bike. The motor should be warm when you dump the oil and the o-ring should be replaced as an extra precaution (don't want to waste that new oil if you have a drip). When replacing the oil filter use a piece of tin foil to divert the oil to your waste pan.

The filters should be the same.
Make sure you have a new o-ring for the oil plug.
Make sure you properly ID the oil plug, there are two under there, one is oil, other is trans.
Don't overfill oil.
Don't over-tighten oil plug on re-installation, the aluminum threads are notorious for pulling out. Oil ring does the seal, snugly tight, don't put all you have into it.

How many ft. lbs to tighten handle bar bolts on the risers of 2004 FHLRCI ?


I've never seen a specific torque value listed for a riser bolt, neither the large bolt on the bottom or the smaller bolts at the top. Simply tighten them to within reason, not too loose but don't strip the threads either. The large lower bolt or nut should be quite tight. The smaller 3/8" bolts at the top should be just tight enough to prevent the handlebars from slipping. I'd use Loctite 242 medium blue on all the bolts.

Good Luck

How do you adjust the handle bars?


On the older FL models, there was chrome cover that covers the handlebar risers. It was held on by two bolts, one on each side of the cover right in the middle of the handlebars. Remove the cover and you can get to the riser. Loosen the top bolts of the riser and adjust the bars. Unless they've changed something, this should work.

Good Luck

How do i get to the clamps on a harley davidson road king handle bars?


The tops of the clamps are under a cover on top of the headlight nachelle. On the earlier, there were two screws that you had to take out and the handlebar clamps were right under the chrome cover. Now if you wish to get to the bushings on the "risers", most people call them clamps, you must remove the entire nachelle in most cases. This requires the removal of the windshield, headlight, turn signal bracket, and possibly other things. The bolts or nuts for the clamps are on the bottom side of the upper triple tree.

How to tighten handlebars on a harley davidson 1997 road king?


If it is the clamp that is loose, remove the riser cover and tighen the 4 allem head screws. If it is the riser base that is loose, turn your bars to the left, look under the triple tree and you will see a large bolt head, one one each side, use a socket and tighten, swing the bars to the right, and repeat on the other side.
Happy riding!

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
