Harley Davidson 1990 Softail,electrical problem

I have serviced my starter motor and now I have fixed it back on the bike.I had removed the oil tank to allow for easy access to get at the starter motor.The oil tank had what looks like a circuit breaker fixed underneath .I did not bother to label any wires as I thought one black and red to the copper stud and the other plain stud had two brown wires.I accidentally attached the black wire which came from the regulator to the copper stud.when ignition was switched on the neutral,oil,and headlights started to glow bright then dim and kept making a click noise intermittently.Then smoke appeared up in the starter switch housing on right hand side of handlebars.Since then I have been trying to track down the correct wiring plan.CAN YOU HELP,,PPPLLLLEEASE

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.

How do you remove starter on a 1992 harley davidson heritage softail


you really need to get a book to refer to as you do this cause its not just unbolt the starter and throw in a new one your outer primary has to come off to remove drive gear and you need to pay close attention to parts positioning so a book with pictures like clymer is worth getting.are you sure its the starter kind of a big job if it was a weak battery

Changing fluids


Trans plug is under the Primary cover ( Left side ) and the Oil line is under the frame on the left side. Look for a oil line with a plug attatched to it. Run the bike up to operating temp. Primary and trans are the same thing ( Sport Trans fluid ) 1Qt in the primary ( fill throught the little cover on the side of the primary, and fill the oil through the oil tank. Put a little oil in the filter too, before installing, this will give the motor a little bit of oil until the rest of it makes it way through. You'll also need 1 p/n 11105 for the drain plug on the primary.

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.

I have a 2000 Softail "Fatboy". The problem is overheating/starting. On several occasions after riding in high heat on several trips say in the 75 to 400 mile range the bike will not restart...


This is going to be a problem with the starter. When a starter is getting a bit on the worn side, high temps will cause the electric motor not to engage creating the same clicking sound as if the battery was dead or had a bad contact.
