SOURCE: new handgrips on 2008 road king

check any service manual, they are all about the same system. I think I know what you are saying though.Take the switch housing off the right side, twist the throttle one way then the other to dis connect cables( there is 2). Old grip should slip right off. Is ther manual cruise on it? If so, that will need to be dis assembled as well (in the switch housing) It is not easy to do if you have big mitts.

SOURCE: How do you set the cruise control on my 2008 Road

You should have a cruise on and off switch on your dash unit, turn this on. a Red cruise indicator should come on on the tach or speedo. On the right hand set of controls you should have a set/resume rocker switch, Get the bike to the desired speed and push to the set, if you have done this correctly the small cruise indicator should come up Green on your tach or speedo. If you apply the brakes cruise will come off and the indicator will become red again. Get the bike up to speed and hit resume to return to desired speed.
To alter speed while underway, the set / resume button also double as the accelerate / coast button. if you wist to increase your cruise speed move the button to the ACC position until the desired speed is acheived, same for reducing cruising speed, hold to the coast position until desired speed is met then release button.

I don't believe the cruise will lock in if you are below 60kmph or 35mph, as it is meant for highway use.

SOURCE: clutch adjustment

There are to different adjustments you can make. The most common adjustment made is on the clutch cable under the rubber boot real easy to figure out once you slide the boot off. The second is at your ramp and ball. I don't ride a RK so I don't know the exact method, but if you stop by your local library they might have a manuel that explains it in detail. My library does.

SOURCE: where is the oil dipstick on an 03 road king

The oil dipstick is located on the right side of bike almost directly under the football cover for the air cleaner. It's a round knob that pulls directly out (Kind of wiggle as you pull on it). Just check like a regular car dipstick pull, wipe and reinsert and then look at dipstick.

2008 road king classic I have a tick sound on left side?

Does it sound like a chain noise, coming from the primary case?

In 2007, Harley changed the primary chain tension adjuster to an "automatic", spring loaded one, that doesn't work very well.

You can bolt in an older manual adjuster, BUT the area that USED to be an inspection/access cover on the outer primary cover is now a solid area, so you'd have to remove the outer primary cover everytime you adjust the primary chain.

There are some aftermarket "automatic" adjusters out on the market.

I purchased a chrome motor bolt set for a 2005 Road King Police Special and never used it. I sold the Road King and bought a 2008 FLHTP/Electra Glide Police Special. Can I use the bolt set? If yes, what...

Hi Eljefalalo, 4 out of 5 Harley Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side contact your local dealers service/parts department for confirmation and your torque specifications are:
1. 1/4" bolts 10 ft lbs.
2. 5/16" bolts 20 ft lbs.
3. 3/8" bolts 35 ft lbs.
4. 7/16" bolts 55 ft lbs.
5. 1/2" bolts 75 ft lbs.
Good luck and have nice day.

How do I adjust the steering head bearing from a 2008 HD road king classic

Jack bike so front wheel is off the ground.
Push handlebar to left until front end starts to continue turn by itself.
When it hits the fork stop (rubber bumper), it should bounce to the right, fall back to the left, then bounce right one more time before stopping, somewhere around the center position.

Remove headlight nacelle.
Remove steering stem nut (on top of top triple clamp).

Under the top triple clamp is a star adjuster ring.
Tighten to decrease swing (tightening bearings).
Loosen to increase swing (loosening bearings).

Reinstall steering stem nut (60-80 ft/lbs).
Reinstall headlight nacelle.

How do you change the brakes on a 2008 road king classic

There are two long bolts (Torqx type bolts) that hold the rear caliper into it's bracket, Remove the two bolts and lift the caliper off the rear caliper bracket. Notice how the pads and the "anti-rattle clips" are positioned in the caliper bracket. Replace the pads and anti-rattle clips with new ones.

Now you'll need to get the piston pressed back into the caliper. Use a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to do this with. Use a rag or something to keep from scratching your paint or scoring the piston. Once the piston is all the way back in it's bore, replace the caliper in it's bracket being careful not to disturn the pads. Pump the rear brake pedal a few times slowly until you build up pressure. Test the brakes before riding the bike. An improperly performed brake job can cause serious injury or death. Make sure everything is right before riding the bike.

Remove the nut lift the spline. then remove the nacelle one side at a time. Once you remove the nacelle the 1/4 allen bolts are right there to tighten. Make sure you tighten them evenly.
