If you have chain Tensioners then you have a Twin cam. This is NOT a job for an amature. Its necessary to take out Push rods which means remove heads or cut your pushrods and reinstall adjustables. You need to take out your cam plate,re align oil pump..Its not a simple job for a novice. If you have noise they have already exploded or are about to. Do not ride your bike..those plastic pieces can get sucked into the oil pump and do major damage. I told that to a customer that was going on a trip he did not heed warning. He got 75 miles they exploded and he bought a new motor.

Is your bike STOCK?? Have the Cams been changed? Do you have Stock Cam CHAINS & TENSIONERS, or is it updated to GEAR DRIVEN Cams? Either way, you have a Cam and or Lifter Problem, and if you are not a Harley Mechanic with access to Shop type tools and Equipment, then I suggest you take you Harley to a reputable repair shop for diagnosis and repair. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RIDE WITH THIS PROBLEM, IT WILL NOT FIX ITSELF and will only cause you MORE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE. Good Luck! -Dr.Mark

My 2000 fat boy is back firing real bad when you give it the gas, really loud and blue flames. I pulled the plugs and cleaned them and its worse.I also replaced the gas with 91 octane.


check your coil connections it sounds like a coil misfire ignition module or its connector would be my next stop also if your bike still has the cam sensor behind the point cover not sure what year they changed that but if youll pull that cover and its not just an empty hole then your looking at the pickup coil or camsensor call it what you will but its a very likely culprit

Gear Box oil change How do i do it??


Trans fluid and primary fluid are the same oil , The drain plug is under the laft side primary cover. 1 qt of oil goes in the inspection cover on the top side of the primary cover. The oil drain is a hose under the left side by the frame rail. Look for a oil line with a plug. fill with approx 3 qts through the oil tank. Make sure you get the bike up to operating temp before dropping the fluid.

Grinding noise when transmission is in neutral


That noise may be coming from your primary, not the tranny. Try adjusting the clutch, and (of course) make sure you have the correct amount of chaincase fluid in your primary. If that doesnt do it Change the trans fluid and see if that helps
