The bolts are taken off with a hex key (allen wrench). The caps are pressed into the hex key opening. The corner of a razor blade or a tiny electrical screw driver slipped between the cap and the screw will allow you to pry it straight up. They can easily be reinstalled by pressing them in with your thumb.

Left handside of handlebar slips down when pushing it and feels very insecure-has something broken?


What type of motorcycle is it ? You will need to at least tell us what make and model of motorcycle it is. Most general brand motorcycles have either a full bar that acts as both handlebars. There are a few brands that have a "center cap" that when the bolts are tightened the cap squeezes down on each individual handle bar. If yours is like that then i would start with seeing if directly between your handlebars and right above your forks if there is a plate with bolts through it. If there is then check to make sure that those bolts are tight.

How do i change the clutch cable on 1987 fxlr


To change the clutch cable, find the clutch cable adjuster and slide the cover up or down so you can get to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get as much slack in the cable as possible. Disconnect the cable at the handlebar lever. Drain the oil out of the transmission. Remove the bolts that hold the chrome endcap, clutch release mechanism cover, from the transmission. Look inside the transmission end cover and disconnect the clutch cable from the release mechanism. Note how the "hook" is positioned holding the cable to the release mechanism. Unscrew the clutch cable end from the end cover. While you are in this area, replace the clutch throw out bearing and retainer clip. Take note of the routing of the cable from the handlebar to the transmission. Replace the cable along with a new O-ring on the transmission end of the cable and install a new gasket. Torque the bolts to 100 inch pounds. Adjust the cable adjuster until you have about an 1/8" freeplay at the handlebar grip.

Good Luck

How to replace head gasket


Hello and welcome to Fixya, First remove tank, remove spark plug cap and plug. Take the tappet covers off ( valve adjuster caps). Then remove the round timing covers on the side of the engine. Rotate the engine either by the kickstart, but recommend using a socket wrench on the flywheel. Rotate until you start to see the intake valves start to go down, as soon as they start coming back up. Use a flash light and continue to rotate slowly until you see a T mark, line it up with the case cover mark. Now you are on Top Dead Center. Remove all your valve cover bolts in a criss cross pattern a little at a time. Remove cover. Now on the rear side of the cylinder/head area there will be a cam chain tensioner, remove it. Now you can remove the cam sprocket, make sure to use a piece of wire or anything to tie up your cam chain to prevent it from falling down into motor or coming off lower gear, just make sure there's good tension on it when you tie it up, tie it up to the handlebar. Remove camshaft. Next remove your exhaust pipe, now remove all the fasteners holding your head down. Next remove your wire tied up at handlebar holding cam-chain, and slowly remove your head. Clean any carbon buildup, inspect cylinder for any abnormal wear (deep scratches ect..) Remove old gasket and clean both surfaces. Now as long as everything looks good just follow in reverse order, make sure when you install camshaft the lobes are facing down, and your camshaft gear marks are lined up with head and your still on the T mark. Check this a few times to make sure the engine didn't move some, if it does just put it back on the T mark. Once you get head, and valve cover back on check your valves to make sure there adjusted to spec. Also make sure you replace your exhaust gasket as well. If I can help you further please don't hesitate to ask, Thanks for your question. Good Luck :)

How do you adjust the handle bars?


On the older FL models, there was chrome cover that covers the handlebar risers. It was held on by two bolts, one on each side of the cover right in the middle of the handlebars. Remove the cover and you can get to the riser. Loosen the top bolts of the riser and adjust the bars. Unless they've changed something, this should work.

Good Luck

How do you remove the bolts to take the handlebars off


They are held on by hex socket bolts (allen). To get to the hex, you need to remove the plastic chrome caps. Generally, a sharp knife carefully wedged between the cap and the bolt will allow you to pop it out without damage. Also, loosen the rear bolts first. When putting the bars back on, tighten the front bolts first, then the rear.
