alternator may have burned out not causing the charge or it could be the regulator not sending the current around properly can take of the alternator for a look for any burn scarring is noticeable can the check the voltage of the battery when running if dying is a sign of alternator not working is an easy enough job just be careful with the seal dont break it as may result in oil leak also when removing case if a bit tight a tip with a mallet will loosen it enough may be some oil loss but wont be much hope it can help lol also alternator is located left side of the bike middle fairing will need to come off and cover for the small sprocket also will be behind the casing

2003 Fatboy while winterizing drained the oil very little came out however there was oil in filter..New filter,filled with oil started sounds like usual then the oil shot out of the cap where you insert...


On the softail model Harley Davidson's the oil tank is external and sits up higher than the engine crank case and oil pump. when these bikes sit for an amount of time the oil gravitates from the tank to the crank case. starting may seem sightly harder and seem like the battery is going dead. the bike should be started in knowing that you had oil in it to start with and no giant leak puddle underneath of it. warm up the engine and then drain the oil out of the tank. the reason why your filler cap popped off is because you had probably 2 1/2 to 3 quarts to much engine oil in the bike. so drain the oil from the tank at the drain pug at the bottom of the hose on the high (right side ) of the bike where the swing arm meets the frame (it is a 5/8 socket) put the drain plug back in run the bike for about 5 minutes inspecting with a flashlight continuously that oil is circulating back into the tank. then dran it again and replace with new oil.

Oil comes out the crank case breather tube engine runs good no exaust smoke oil is on full mark whats my problem?


IS THIS A 4 STROKE ENGINE? DID THE BIKE FALL OVER ON ITS SIDE FOR A LONG TIME? A PLUGED UP FILTER IN THE AIR FILTER BOX,OR A POSITIVE CRANKCASE VALVE PLUGGED UP? THE CRANKCASE VENTING,VAPORS NEED TO GO INTO THE AIR INTAKE AND BURNED IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER CYLINDER.

I over reved my 84 500 interceptor and now I beleive I have a problem with an exaust valve. How do I replace it?


are you sure you think its exhaust valves because i owned an 85 and i thought i had a valve problem too! if you've been abusing the bike and going past Redline i'm afraid i have some bad news for you..ten years after i had to get rid of my interceptor, i read an article by Honda admitting that they made defective cranks for their 500 interceptors, so now i know why my bike seized up on me going 60 mph on the highway..i quickly pulled in the clutch and coasted to a stop and then had to push it two miles home. what makes you think its an exhaust valve by the way? do you have a lot of smoke coming out, because that would just mean your burning a lot of oil that is getting through worn piston rings!

Water in oil


it will come out eventually it is condensation the only other way I have been able to remove it in the past is to drain the oil and take a heat gun or a blow dryer and use it to dry the condensation

KX60 2001,losing oil from crank casing and won't start.


Hi!

Well, first of all, YES it will start without any oil at all, but in a few minits it will be damaged badly inside the engine. The oils has nothing to do if it starts or not.
Now to that crack youve got under the bike, well its damn expenisve to buy a new casing, BUT you dont need to buy one:) the crack can be WELD:) thats something you cant do yourself. Take the bike to someone good at welding and he will fix it for you in notime:) and its cheap to do it. DO NOT drive the bike before you fill it up with new oil, dont even start it up again without any oil in it, that can be very expensive to do that if you are unlucky.

Good luck
