2003 Fatboy while winterizing drained the oil very little came out however there was oil in filter..New filter,filled with oil started sounds like usual then the oil shot out of the cap where you insert...

On the softail model Harley Davidson's the oil tank is external and sits up higher than the engine crank case and oil pump. when these bikes sit for an amount of time the oil gravitates from the tank to the crank case. starting may seem sightly harder and seem like the battery is going dead. the bike should be started in knowing that you had oil in it to start with and no giant leak puddle underneath of it. warm up the engine and then drain the oil out of the tank. the reason why your filler cap popped off is because you had probably 2 1/2 to 3 quarts to much engine oil in the bike. so drain the oil from the tank at the drain pug at the bottom of the hose on the high (right side ) of the bike where the swing arm meets the frame (it is a 5/8 socket) put the drain plug back in run the bike for about 5 minutes inspecting with a flashlight continuously that oil is circulating back into the tank. then dran it again and replace with new oil.

Microphone on the house phone

chances are that the wire for the microphone has broken from the circuit board. you will have to open the phone(probably by removing battery cover and a couple of screws and re solder the broken wire.its not really a difficult job,but you may lose any stored numbers if the battery is removed for too long. good luck

Caramel (coffee) colored oil

It's trans fluid. It came out of the vent tube just above the primary cover on the top cover of the trans. If you look at the tube, the inside will be wet. Run the bike up to operating temp. Check upright and level.

1 qt oil every 1000 miles

kev, check you have the right level on your dip stick, oil must be on upper mark when donk cold.also ensure you are running the correct oil weight for your donk.
engine may be running hot; which means one way oil can go missing is its being burnt.
also check your primary drive,clutch oil level ,not sure as i have 80cube evo, but you may find your oil in there due to bad oil seal internally. im no expert but these may be of help.

KX60 2001,losing oil from crank casing and won't start.

it could start without oil..... but the amount of damage you would likely do to it makes it very unwise. if all the oil leaked out there was oil in it when it was started before. if i'm not mistaken that case is aluminum. if you can find someone that does tig welding (i think it's tig for aluminum).... they could probably weld that crack without taking the motor apart..... just a thought.

please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

1991 fatboy harley

theres a rubber boot on your clutch cable, under it is your cable adjuster. free up the jam nut then turn your adjuster , you should be able to see it tighten at the hand control. If you wanna do the whole job, you'll need to remove your derby cover on the primary. You'll be lookin at the clutch. In the center is a jam nut. Loosen it and then u can turn the adjusting screw clockwise till it stops. Then back it out 1/2-1 full turn. Tighten the jam nut.... take up the slack in the cable..... replace the boot,,,,TA DA!

My '94 FLHTC no longer holds air in the front shocks.

Air shocks are done when they no longer hold air, they'll need replaced. They can be rebuilt, (not sure why), but almost all places won't because it's cheaper to buy new ones, and not worth their time. You can also get a rebuild kit, but again, with the kit, specialty tools required, and the extreme pain in the arse that is involved, new ones are cheaper. So, with this said, buy new shocks, it's going to be cheaper and safer than rebuilding these.

My transmission/clutch

The tranny on these are bullet proof. So, this is most likely going to be the clutch. I say most likely, because I thought my clutch had gone out here recently on my Softtail, but when I got the clutch assembly off, it turned out to be the front drive belt pulley. They're aluminum, and spun the splines out., so keep this in mind if the clutch is good. Since this is an 883 that makes it easier to inspect the clutch. You'll need to pull the primary cover, check the clutch cable mechanism inside the cover, and check the friction plates on the clutch. You should be able to see if the frictions have any pad left, and the cable mechanism will be easy to tell if there's anything wrong with it. Use new primary fluid, and get a new primary gasket, do not reuse the old, especially the gasket. Although it may look good, even the smallest separation in the gasket will cause a leak. Good luck, and let me know how it turns out.
