There are no grease fittings on the swingarm bearing on your Softail. You must pull the swingarm to get to the bearings.

How do you check oil level in a 2004 xb12r

The oil is stored in the swingarm on the 2004 XB12R. Warm the bike up, then check the oil level on the dipstick which is located on the left side of the swingarm.

I have a 1993 vulcan that needs new tires. I have the front wheel off no problem, but I don't even know where to start taking the rear apart. Would appreciate any expert advice.

Easy as pie. Put bike on center stand or use swingarm stand. Remove nut from rear axle. Remove pinch bolt from rear axle, and pull axle out. Take spacer from between frame and rear brake. Remove brake strut, and brake caliper. Pull wheel out of final drive, and lower to floor. You might have to let the air out of the tire to get it out from between the final drive and swingarm. After changing the rear tire inflate it to seat the bead, deflate to get back in place, then reinflate. Put some grease on the splines in the final drive before reinstalling the wheel, this will make it easier for the next change.

Rear wheel assembly for flstc 1994 rear wheel is not centring,too far over to the left, drive belt is rubbing on wheel

Unless someone has changed a spacer or something , the rear wheel should be centered with the frame, not necessarily the swingarm. The rear brake caliper bracket acts as the spacer on the right side and there is a spacer on the left side. This spacer on the left side should be just short enough to get into the swingarm without a lot of excess space once installed. You should not be squeezing your swingarm more than 0.125 inch or so.

Now, there are other things that will cause the tire to rub the final drive belt. Too wide tire will do this. The '94 models used the old style wide belts unlike the narrower belt used by the later models. If you install a like is on a later model, it's too wide and will probably rub. The next reason for tire belt interference is the rear tire not being adjusted correctly and it is not under the bike straight. Adjust the rear wheel by measuring the length of the adjuster bolt relative to the axle. These measurements should be the same on both sides of the swingarm. If you can't do that, find something about six feet long that you can use as a straight edge to check the alignment of the rear wheel to the front wheel. Keep in mind that there is an offset designed into the front wheel. Just make sure that the rear wheel is as straight relative to the frame as you can get it.

Even with all this stuff correctly set, the final drive belt will be close to the side of the tire but it should not rub.

Im putting new bearings in my 05 crf230f suspension linkage, but cnt figure it all out, anby help???

where to start... i'm not sure where you are in the R&R of your bearing so lets start after the rear wheel is off. remove your lower shock bolt and linkage ( mark all parts while removing them so you'll know where they go ) now remove the swingarm bolt, you'll have spacers in there so WATCH where they come from. Now you have the swing arm in your hand. remove the seals, take you punch and start to knock out the bearings be carefull not to dug into the swing arm. do the same for the linkage. grease new bearing, install the new bearings a socket is a driver install seals, spacers, swingarm, linkage ect..

Striped transmission drain plug case

the only way to fix a striped thred is to fit a (hellycoial?) in it, its a kind of spring that winds its way into the old thred and gives you a new thred to screw into (but there realy not very strong) i have used them when i striped a spark plug thred out and it lasted for years,,,you could buy a kit or take it to the bike shop for them to fit one in for you its a lot cheeper than a new case,, and you can still use the same plug,after its been fitted

04 HD flstc shifter problem

Sounds like your return spring is broken. Unfortunately, you will have to disassemble part of the transmission to replace it.

Hi, having a problem with the suspension of my GT 250. When i ride it the rear suspension seems to go down and stick down then reluctantly come back up...any ideas please?

  1. Shock absorbers are shot
  2. Add spring pressure to shocks
  3. Swingarm needs to be greased
  4. All of the above
If the shocks are shot then you will need to find replacements. If I recall correctly, the bottom half of the shock had an adjustment ring that turned to add spring pressure. There were 4 settings indexed in the ring. The swing arm may need cleaning and grease. If stiff, it could be the problem. You may need to remove the wheel and the shocks to get the swingarm off for adding grease at the hinge point.
