Hi, are the grips aftermarket or original equiptment? have actualy fitted these to a 125cc with no problems, as long as the battery is 12volts you should have no problems, they are controled by a switch, if the type you buy have 2 eylets for fixing to the battery you may want to consider removing the red 1 and fixing it to a fused, switched live which becomes -volts when key is turned off this will save you accidently leaving the grips turned on and discharging the battery.

Tachometer not working

Hi Anonymous, if you have a 2005 FLHT then there is no cable, the tachometer is electronic and is probably ok. The ECM may have gotten an unaceptable reading and is not letting the tach play with the other children. Go to the websites below for more info:

Why does wiring harness of the low beam headlight burns the socket and/or the wires

It is usually a combination of heat from the light itself being transferred to the wiring through the electrical-connection blades, and heat generated by a less-than-optimal electrical connection (loose grip, corrosion, etc.).

It can be very helpful to ensure that air from the front of the car flows over the wires and the connectors.

Additionally, manufacturers use the thinnest gauge that will do the job under optimal conditions.

If you mean to retrofit a better system, probably the best thing to do is get yourself some weather-proof relays, and run the relays with the existing wiring, using the relays to provide power to the lights through much thicker wires, with the power coming to the relays directly from the battery, with an inline fuse. This should additionally produce noticeably brighter illumination. (A little brighter, but still noticeable.)

Removal of throttle grip

The rubber grip on the throttle side of the handlebar usually is glued on and has to be cut off. Other than that, the throttle itself is held in place by the brake lever clamp. If you get into that area, be careful, you may break off the brake light plunger from it's actuator. I don't feel comfortable telling you to go any further than just removing the rubber sleeve.

Everyone has their favorite spark plugs and oil. As for spark plugs, I like NGK plugs because I've had less problems with them than any other plug I've ever run.

As for oil, it depends on whether you're talking petroleum based or synthetic. Aftermarket petroleum based, I like RevTech. Aftermarket synthetic Mobil V-Twin.

2001 flht standard not getting fire 2 plugs will fire when cold will not when gets hot bike has 84000 miles email need help

Sounds like the coil. Had the same problem with a Sportster, changed coil. As coil ages it breaks down, heat expands internal connections and coil fails. When cooled, coil contracts and the contacts come back together. This COULD be your problem, not sure. Do you have a buddy that will let you try his coil for a test?

each additional passenger pounds > 150 lbs add 1.5 lbs
each additional 10 lbs of laggage add 3.0 lbs
