I had to replace both fork assemblies on my 2007 fat boy. the manual says they should "slide" out and new ones slide in. Not so??

FIRST remove the front wheel and brake caliper.

SECOND remove the front fender

THIRD remove the slider tube cap, spacer and oil seal from the top of one fork side.

FOURTH loosen the pinch bolt and pull the fork side from the brackets.

FIFTH repeat Steps 3 and 4 for the other fork side.

Speedo drive unit need to put new one i need to take front forks off

No, the drive unit is on the axle and is simply "pinched" in between the lower fork slider and the wheel. When you put the new one on, make sure you get the drive tab on the unit in the hole in the wheel.

Good Luck

I need an exploded view or instruction so I can install the front wheel onto the forks of my 1991 HD Ultra Classic. Anyone? Thanks

There shouldn't be anything to putting the front wheel on your bike. On each side of the wheel, there is a seal and a "spacer" inside the seal. If this is spacer is in the seal on each side of your wheel, put the wheel between the forks and slide the axle in. The large end of the axle pulls all the way in against the "spacer" on that side and this pulls the "spacer" on the other side tight against the fork on the other side. Tighten the axle nut to 50-60 foot pounds and the clamp bolts to 25 foot pounds of torque. If you still want a diagram, the best I can do is to direct you to this site. Select OEM parts, then choose your bike and go to the drawing for wheels.

I need to know rear wheel spacer placement. also where to rreference to align the rear wheel. it seems i have un equal space between the wheel and fender. i have a total of three spacers two on the pulley...

The wheel not being equally spaced under the fender is typical of all Softail motorcycles. They have an "offset" wheel stance. I don't know exactly why but they are designed this way.

The three spacers you are talking about is actually one spacer and two seal races. The two seal races go into the wheel bearing seals on either side of the wheel. This provides a smooth finish for the wheel bearing seals to ride on. The other "spacer" is a bit larger and goes on the belt side of the wheel and the rear brake caliper bracket acts as the spacer on the other side. Anytime you take the wheels off your bike, always mark and make a drawing of the positions of the spacers.

Good Luck

How do i change the rear tire on 2003 harley fatboy

Get the bike up off the ground, just slightly at first. Then take the nut off the axle. If your axle is inserted into the swing arm from the left side, start to withdraw the axle. If it's inserted from the right side, you'll probably have to remove the muffler(s). As you pull the axle out, remove and mark any spacers that come out. Mark where they go and in what direction they were facing. If you have difficulty getting the axle out, you may have to loosen the wheel adjusters on either side of the swingarm.

Once you have the axle out and the wheel sitting on the ground, start raising the bike more. As you come up with it, work the drive belt off of the pulley. You may have to remove the lower belt guard to do this. Do not twist the belt or squeeze it in a radius sharper than 4 inches or you will damage the belt. When you get the bike raised enough so that the rotor is clear of the caliper, start leaning eh wheel over and working it out from under the bike.

Seems like there are three spacers on a Fat Boy. Two are very short and go into the bearing seals on either side of the wheel, and one is a longer spacer that goes on the belt side. The spacer on the other side is the brake caliper bracket. Make yourself a drawing. Invaribly, you'll look at a spacer and wonder "did it go here or here". Drawings never lie.

When you put the axle back in, insert it from the left side of the bike. That way, next time you won't have to take the exhaust system apart. To adjust the belt, first get both wheel adjusters to the same length. The turn them each the same amount at a time moving the wheel backwards in increments. Once you get the belt tensioned correctly, the two adjusters should be the same lenght. This gets the rear wheel aligned correctly in the swingarm.

Check the operation of your rear brakes before you ride the bike. If you start hearing a "chirp" when you shift gears on the bike, your rear belt is too loose.

Good Luck

How many spacers are with the front wheel

Not quite sure how to answer this because of your definition of spacer may not be the same as mine. If I'm not mistaken, there are two "spacers" that are actually part of the wheel bearing seal. The are both exactly alike and the sit in the wheel bearing seals. Then there is one spacer that goes on the axle. The axles is undercut on the other side.

Good luck

2001 harley davidson fat boy fork seals leak

Either the seals were not installed correctly or your tubes and sliders are excessively worn. Not changing the fork oil at recommended intervals will cause excessive wear. Overfilling the forks will cause leaks too.
