To change the final drive belt on your Softail, you must drain the primary and pull the outer primary cover off. Then, you must take the engine sprocket, primary chain, and clutch assembly off. Then you must remove the starter and the inner primary. Then, raise the bike and remove the rear wheel and the swingarm. It's quite a job.

Good Luck

I have a 97 Harley Davidson with a springer front forks and I get a lot of vibration when I'm riding

Have the balance checked on the front tire, My heritage springer did the same thing and the front tire had slung the weight off of the front tire causing it to be unbalanced and bounce causing a vibration at speeds of 30mph on up.

Location of washers on front axle 2002 harley springer softtail

You need to be sure it is a washer and not a shim. The washer(s) will go on the nut side of the axel outside of the fork, shims will go inside the fork to center the tire.
