Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC - FLSTCI Heritage Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have 2005 softail as listed,was bought used,someone replaced front forks due to being in accident.the only thing not working is front running and turn signal lights. Passing lights work,headlight works. Indicators work.All other lights work.When turning on high beam passing lights go out(should they go out when high beam is on?) I`m going by an 2002 wire diagram but don`t know if it is same as 05. Could the TSM cause this? Thanks-

    Thanks Steve that part of the high beam and pass lights makes sense to me I can agree or understand that, but the first part of my question was that only the front turn signals are not working and would the TSM cause that problem. Thanks -Jerry-

No, the TSM does not have this function in it. It controls nothing but the turn signals. Whoever wired the passing lights in used the wire for the high beam light as a power wire for the passing lights. This was probably done so that they would not overload the charging system. If you have the high beam light and the passing lights on, it's a tremendous draw on the charging system and it may have caused a fuse to blow. So, they probably wired the passing lights to operate without the high beam light. I think the wire is white for the high beam.

Good Luck

    Thanks Steve I can see or understand the part of the high beam that makes sense to me, but on the first part of my question or problem was that only the front turn signals are not working and could the TSM cause only the front not to work when the back one ans indicators work and they do turn off automatically like they are suppose to. I haven`t found anything wrong with wiring yet.-Thanks--Jerry--

    Opps, sorry about that. I got to thinking about the passing light thing and forgot about the first part. If you'll drop me a line directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net , I'll send you a pin out and a trouble shooting guide for the TSM. It has changed since the diagram that I've got but it'll probably only be wiring colors. The troubleshooting should be the same. Really, if either of the turn signals are not working, they shouldn't blink on that side. So if the front ones are not working, none of them should work. Now, the biggest problem with the older units was the ground would go bad and you'd have to trace it to the frame ground and clean that. I'm not sure about the newer units as I don't mess with anything made later than 1999 nor anything that is fuel injected. I'm an old school biker and I work on the older bikes that the dealer won't mess with anymore. Mostly Shovelheads and Ironhead Sportsters, Evos, and occasionally a Panhead. Contact me directly and I'll send you four pages of information. It might help. Otherwise, you're going to need a complete schematic and I don't have one of anything that late.

Triple tree removal


This really just depends on the crew involved and the equipment used. Without a little more information, it's a little hard to tell how the pricing will turn out. I would suggest calling local contractors who do free estimates.

In changing 2005 Harley Heritage Model FLSTCI fork oil, how many ounces of fork oil should I use? What does wet or dry mean?


I'm sorry but I don't have the specs on the quantity and type of fork oil for your year and model bike. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer service. But, I can describe the difference between the "wet" and "dry" conditions of the fork assembly. If you take the front forks apart, clean them out, and put them back together with no oil in them, they are considered "dry". For a simple drain and refill type oil change on them where you don't get all the oil out of them, they are considered "wet". I hope this helps, You can call you local dealer's service department and they should tell you the quantity and viscosity of the oil that goes in the front forks on your machine. They'll tell you something like 6 ounces of "Type E" oil, for example. Harley-Davidson uses these types of specs to describe their oils. If you go to a website for fork oil, like PJ1, they may give a cross reference or equivalency chart for converting H-D "Type E" to their oil. I think that would be their 30 weight oil. If the front end seems too "stiff" with 30 weight, you can drop down to 20 weight. I think Honda makes a 25 weight but not sure. Your Harley won't mind the Honda oil. BG.

Good Luck

I am putting chrome lowers and the and chrome fork covers on my wifes 2005 deluxe, my first fork work, what is the nachelle, do I need to remove the forks, will that access the attaching hardware on the...


The nachelle is the polished or chromed cover around the headlight and the triple trees of the front end. I think the "nostalgia" model has the early model "tins" like on a fatboy. This is considered the nachelle.

Now, if you installing "covers" which are thin chrome plated alumnium or steel overlays to the forks, I would think they would be made so you could install them without disassembly of the forks. But, if you're installing "chromed lower sliders", you'll have to remove and disassemble the fork tubes one at the time to swap out the slider on each tube.

Good Luck

I just bought chrome fork sliders how do i remove the old ones?


If you remove the front wheel, front brake caliper, and front fender and look on the very bottom of the slider where the axle came out, you'll see an 8mm socket head bolt. If you remove this bolt, the slider will come off.

But before you do that, I'd advise draining the oil from the fork leg and releasing the spring tension on the slider by removing the fork tube plug and removing the spring. To get to this plug, you'll probably have to remove the windshield, the nachelle, and the top cap. Then loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree and allow the fork to slide down and out of the triple trees.

When you refill the fork with oil. Use the same amount and viscosity as what was in there. Thicker viscosity and more oil has a tendency to "stiffen" the fork.

Good Luck

I am replacing my OEM lower fork sliders with Chrome ones. How much fork oil is required and do I need to replace the seals or anything else? My bike is a 2005 Softail Deluxe.


The best way to do this is to get a clean containe and carefully drain the fork oil into it and measure how much came out nad replace the same amount.
I use a measuring cup from an automotive paint store.
Your old seals should be good but give them a good visual check first.

Vibration in handlebars/forks??


Hi,
Front end vibration can be caused by front rim/tire out of balance, worn wheel bearing(s), bent front rim, or fork misalignment.
Since you recently had fork work done, I would first check the forks for proper alignment, then have the bike on a stand and spin the wheel to see if there is wobbling. To check for bearing wear, while the front is off the ground, try to rock the wheel from side to side. If you can feel or see movement, you will need new bearings.
Hope this helps
