Yes there is a nut on the backside of the stud that the peg mounts to. The stud is also the shaft for the rear brake pedal. To get to the nut, take the master cylinder loose and the snap ring that holds the rear brake pedal on or the remove the pin from the brake pedal. Now, take the large nut below the peg and brake pedal shaft off and the other two bolts that hold the front sprocket cover on. Remove the cover and you can get to the nut.

Good Luck

I've tightened all the screws on my Kuryakyn


get a shorter shoulder bolt that allows it to tighten up. Be sure to get a new nut. Allow the difference to not tighten it up so much as to "seize" the foot peg so as not to fold up as the manufacture engineered it to.

Adjust clutch on 1998 timberwolf


On the right side of engine (just above the foot peg), you should see a nut threaded over a slotted bolt. You should see the words "increase" & "decrease" with arrows pointing in either direction. Loosen the nut around the bolt and turn the screw slightly maybe a 1/4 turn. (turn towards the increase direction to make the clutch engage sooner, turn towards the decrease direction to adjust the clutch to disengage sooner). Tighten the nut, and test your change. You will have to "play" with the adjustment until you get the clutch the way you want it.

I have a 75 flh with the passenger peg mounted to the primary inspection cover.is this stock. if not where do they mount


Yes, this is where the passenger foot peg on the left side of the bike goes. There is an arm that clamps onto the round stub on the inspection cover and is afjustable to almost any angle. The right side foot peg support bolts to the end of the transmission and also has an adfustable arm that clamps onto a stub on it. Then the pegs go on the end of the arms. Go to this site and take a look . http://www.bikebandit.com/1975-harley-davidson-flh-1200/o/m770#sch171752 I'm pretty sure they didn't move the peg brackets to the seat tubes of the frame until 1977. If your bike has two holes in a welded-on tab on the rear of the down tubes behind the primary and the transmission, you can use the later model peg brackets. But, if your bike has no holes in the frame or the swingarm for passenger peg brackets, this is the only style you can use and stay original. You could fabricate and weld on tabs to later model peg brackets or use clamp on brackets and pegs.


Good Luck

It is behind the engine cover on the left side of the bike.
Remove left driver foot peg or floorboard and shifter and the case is a few bolts to get off. No oil will leak when cover is removed.

Clutch cable broke at handle lever on 1979 harley davidson sporst


To change the clutch cable on you '79 Sporty, you'll have to take the outer primary cover off. To do this, you'll have to drain the oil from the primary, take the left side foot peg off, and loosen the primary chain adjuster on the bottom side of the primary. Loosen the locknut and use an allen wrench or hex key to screw the adjuster bolt downward.

If you need to know anything else, drop me a line at wd4ity@bellsouth.net

Then, remove the large "plug" towards the rear of the cover. Inside, you'll see something that looks like a nut but with no threads in it held in by a small spring. This the the lock nut, remove it. Below it is what looks like another nut with a slotted adjuster bolt sticking out. Remover the bolts from around the primary cover and break it loose from the engine. While turning the adjuster screw at the rear of the cover inward, remove the cover.

The cable connects to the cluch release mechanism. By turning the "link" downwards, you can disconnect it from the mechanism. Notice which way the "link" in attached to the release mechanism. Take the "link" off the end of the clutch cable.

Break the lock nut loose at the threaded cable adjuster on the outside of the case and screw the adjuster all the way out of the primary cover. Disconnect the cable at the handlebar lever and your cable is out.

Reinstall the new cable in the reverse order. When replacing the outer primary cover, make sure you use a new gasket on the cover as well as on the foot peg boss. The "foot peg boss gasket" is very important. You'll see an aluminum boss with a threaded rod sticking out of it that holds your left foot peg on. There is a round gasket that goes over this threaded rod and seals against the boss. If you leave this off, your bike will leak oil around this threaded rod when your foot peg goes on. Make sure you specifically ask for the "foot peg boss gasket" when you buy the new primary gasket. It's just a round gasket a bit larger than a quarter.

As you put the primary cover back on, there is a spring on the primary chain adjuster. Part of the spring is in the primary cover and the other part is in the engine. You'll see how it goes in. There is a large stud in that area that the outer primary cover slides up on. Adjust the tension on the primary chain by removing the "plug" at the top of the primary cover. You want 3/4" to 7/8" up and down play in the chain with the engine cold.

On the adjuster, as you're installing the outer cover, turn the ajuster screw back into the clutch release mechanism by turning the screw backwards. Once you have the outer primary cover completely installed, you must adjust the release mechanism. Adjust the screw inwards until you feel a resistance, then back the screw off about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn, insert the "lock nut" and spring, and install the "plug". Then, using the cable adjuster on the outside of the cover, adjust the cable. Add oil.
