I HAVE A NEW 2011 HERITAGE SOFTTAIL AND WISH TO ADJUST THE REAR SHOCK BUT CANNOT LOCATE THE ADJUSTER


The adjusters are on the shocks that are underneath the bike. There are two adjustments. One is a nut on the shock stem that adjusts the height of the bike and the other is end plate of the shock with the holes in it. This adjusts the preload of the shocks. You need a special tool to adjust the preload.

Good Luck

How do I get the rear tire off of my 1999 heritage softtail classic.


Jack the bike up off the ground. Remove the axle nut and the belt guards. You might want to loosen the belt tensioning bolts and allow the front wheel to move forwards just a bit. Drive the axle out. You may have to take your muffler off so the axle will come out. When you put the axle back in, start from the left side of the bike and have the nut behind the muffler. Make sure you mark and make a drawing of what spacer goes where. You should have three as best as I can remember. One is a long spacer and two short ones. The short ones go in the wheel bearings and the long one goes on the belt pulley side. Lower the wheel and allow it to roll forward a bit. Jack the bike up a bit higher and work the drive belt off the drive pulley. Tip the wheel over and jack the bike up until you can get the wheel out.

good Luck

Front end shakes


I have a 98 heritage springer. Took it to the dealer and said the front end shakes. Without looking at it, the shop manager asked how many miles I had. Just under 10k was the answer. He said "neck bearings, it's a known issue with springer front ends that the neck bearings go after 10k miles." Taking his word for it, I agreed to have the work done. Got the bike back, no change. He said, well it needs a new front tire then. Changed the tire, again, no change. Took it to another dealer. Explained my tale of woe and the manager actually got on it and rode it. Agreeing there was something wrong, they took it in, jacked it up and actually looked at it. Turned out the rim was bent. So after all the BS at the first shop, it turns out they replaced the neck bearings and installed a new front tire on A BENT RIM! Start with the simple stuff first. Check the front wheel balance and rim straightness before diving into bearings.

2000 FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic: 2001 heritage is blowing oil through breather.why?...


All Harleys after the year 1992 will have some engine oil carry over visible in the air cleaner though there is a diffrence between excessive and normal although if you get on your bike and travel down the highway at a constant 80+ MPH you will find that you get more carry over to the air cleaner then you would normally riding at lower speeds and this is simply cause you are running the engine harder and therefore you will see more carry over at the air cleaner. Now to be sure, make sure your bike is sitting on level pavement and in the case of a Softtail model it should also be upright and level pull the dipstick from the oil tank and wipe it clean, reinsert fully into the oil tank and remove it again and look to see if your oil level is roughly halfway between the check marks on the dipstick. If so then yes your oil level is good. I would now remove the air cleaner cover and wash any excess oil out of it and if your running a stock air filter and you have had a oil carry over issue for awhile now, then replace the air filter, reinstall the air cleaner cover and go ride the bike for around 50 miles and by ride the bike I mean go ride it like in town and on the highway without being abusive to it or excessive speeds(70 mph). Then remove your air cleaner cover again after your test ride and look to see if you have any oil carry over in the air cleaner. if so let me know and we can go into further detail.
