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.

We have a business panasonic xdp system and are unable to change the greeting message. How do we access this initial contact message. We are able to change individual mail boxes on the system.

Assuming you dial 165 to get to the voice mail system (a TVS type box) you press #6 * 998. You better know the password if it asks and you need to know where the greeting was recorded. It sits either in a Custom Service box (1-100) or a Company Greeting (1-32).

I'd be hoping that someone left a TVS Installation and Programming manual with cheat notes lying around. If not, there's a way into the TVS via a terminal program and the DB-9 serial connector on the box. That will let you read the database.

Your Panasonic installer/dealer might have the passwords and setup in their records.

Rear rocker box

First off remove the spark plugs from both cylinders, this will make it easier to rotate the engine to the proper position for rocker box removal. Now drain and remove the fuel tanks. You will want to have a 3/16" ball allen wrench to remove the top cover from the rocker box. Next you need to be sure that both valves are closed on the rear cylinder. To do this put the bike in top gear(5th). With the rear wheel off the ground slightly rotate the rear tire slowly in the direction of normal rotation(like the bike was going down the road). Have a friend put their finger over the rear cylinder spark plug hole. When they feel their finger being pushed off the hole as your rotating the rear wheel, You will be close to TDC on the the compression stroke at this point both valves should be closed fully or very close to it. Now remove the top cover(it does fit very tight between the engine and frame). Once you can see the rocker arms rotate the rear wheel until you see the rocker arm closest to the center of the motor(intake) start to open and then close. At this point both valves are fully closed(this is crucial). If you dont have the valves closed when you remove the lower rocker box you will bend the valves and then your simple job becomes an expensive one. Now remove the 2 3/16" allen head screws from the left side of the lower rocker box. Then remove the 3 7/16" bolts from the inside of the rocker box. Now you can slowly remove the last 4 bolts these will be 1/2", back each one out about a full turn at a time, until all 4 bolts are completely out. The rear rocker box will now move around pretty freely on top of the cylinder head. You can now remove the covers from the pushrod tubes, use a flat blade screw driver and slip it into the little clip that is like a handle on the tube. Lift the lower part of the push rod tube and lift the pushrod until it clears the lifter block so you can remove it. Set each pushrod off to one side noting which one came from which cylinder. At this point you should be able to now push on the shaft that runs through the rear exhaust rocker arm this will allow the rocker arm its self to be removed. Now you can pull the lower rocker box from frame. Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly. Honestly I do reccomend that you buy a service manual from your local dealership before attempting this though. Also when you are putting everything back together make sure to start all of your bolts a few turns before tightening everything down. As you are tightening the bolts for the lower rocker box you will notice that the pushrods are holding the rocker box up. This is normal, but be sure to tighten the bolts only a turn each at a time(1/2") The hydraulic lifters will need to bleed down before you start the bike and it may even clatter pretty good when you first start it up. This is the lifters building oil back up into them. Take your time and go slow. Let me know how it goes and feel free to get back to me with any questions. Its better to ask if you dont understand then to rush through it. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Oil amount

It's going to hold approx 3 quarts. The dipstick is irrelevant, the level should be just bellow the bottom of the filler tube, about a half inch, so you should be able to see the oil when you remove the cap. I'm not sure why HD even puts the dipstick on the cap.

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.

New harely

Take it easy and keep the revs low - don't thrash the arse off it to start with. Easy gear changes and use the clutch well. Change the oils at first 1000 miles. If it is brand new then the dealer should be giving you your first service free under warranty?

No power to the wheels

ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it
