Man its been awhile since i saw one of those. i wish hd still made rebuildable front ends instead of throw away *** units. run your finger to the bottom of bushing to see if there is a lip on the bottom, if so, go to harbor freight and buy a blind bearing removal set if it will go to the size you need. if not, they also sell a slide hammer tool with claws that will work if it will go into the hole. if all else fails, take a hack saw blade and carefully cut the bushing almost through on opposing sides, try not to scar tube. you can then use a small screw driver and work the bushing out at one of the slits, once the tension is gone, it will pick out. other than that, find an old hd shop. as an after thought, there are expanding pipe ez outs which should clamp to the bushing allowing you to pull it out but do not over expand so damage to the tube will not occur.

Starter removal


It's quite a process to remove a starter on a sportster. I changed one for my friend on his 03 sportster. You have to take alot of stuff off to get to the bolts that hold it on. Can I suggest getting a service manual for the bike. Trust me it's worth its weight in gold. I've done alot of work on my sportster and my friends sportster and would never attempt anything without the book. As far as the starter, From what I remember, I had to remove the exhaust pipes then the primary cover, and I'm sure there were more parts, but you need to know what gaskets you will need to replace. Good Luck. And go get the book. I got mine at Barnes and Noble. and my friend got his at the Harley dealer. Have fun.

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.

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.

Drive belt


You have to drop the swingarm, the belt wraps the arm, so you have to take it loose from the frame in order to get the belt in place. I would recommend a service manual for your bike, for all the torque specs of the components you will need to remove, ie... brake caliper, shocks, swing arm pivot bolt, etc.., and for the rear wheel and belt alignment, and the belt tension. The belt tension is crucial, if it not tight enough you will wear the belt out faster or it will slip, and if it's too tight you can break the belt or spin the splines out of the front drive pulley. I know this from experience, overtightened the belt on mine earlier this summer, was fine with my wieght, but spun the pulley at a ralley with a passenger. If you need any further assistance or have any questions, feel free to ask.
