Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

Harley Transmission After rebuilding the transmission, 1500 miles later, 4th gear came loose. It put a hole in the casing the size of a 50 cent piece. All gears are brand new & the work was done by a harley mechanic. Can you tell me what could have happened? Part of the gear was chewed off & the main shaft was bent.

    What year and model? The post said this is a telephone. Why did the trans need repair in the first place? Why do you say 4th gear is the problem?

Can i put regular transmission fluid in my 08 harley


You should only be running Harleys transmission fluid in that transmission. According to the factory actually the only acceptable substitute is Bel Ray 85-140 Hypoid Gear Oil and actually it is what I prefer to run as it is red and if ever you have a transmission leak you will know it as it is red and that will automatically ID your leak. Good luck thanks for using Fixya.com

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

Dry bearing noise


I just had a mystery sqeak that took two different shops to find. Same symptoms, but mine turned out to be a bent piece of the part that indexes the brake pad on my front end. it was dragging on the rotor. The wrenchers at our local HD shop had no luck after 13 days, but the extreme sport jockies found it inside thirty minutes. Might not be your problem at all, but it could be.

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.

Do new 1450cc harley davidson engines use same oils in engine and transmission ?


If you use Harley oil from the dealer, you use 20-50w oil for the engine and they use special formulated lube that you use in both the transmission and primary,Some people do use the same oil in the engine,tranny and primary, I would not recommend it

High oil pressure


miles don't mean a thing in this instance. miles only tell us a small bit about the wear on the machine cuz' as you know not all miles are the same. I know that my miles are like dog years when it comes to puts. I ride hard and fast and wear out pegs as fast as tires man! but thats another story. where is the pressure guage? think about that, but also think about this, your partners machine is sending mixed signals. the oil light means LOW pressure cuz it usually goes out when the mill starts spinnin at idle right? but then the guage is readin high. what kinda guage?where is it tapped in? if its on the gear case and thats high and the light sensor is in the pump then somethin in between aint right? need more info and i will look at the plumbing on the evo I'm a little rusty there
