Can i put regular transmission fluid in my 08 harley


You should only be running Harleys transmission fluid in that transmission. According to the factory actually the only acceptable substitute is Bel Ray 85-140 Hypoid Gear Oil and actually it is what I prefer to run as it is red and if ever you have a transmission leak you will know it as it is red and that will automatically ID your leak. Good luck thanks for using Fixya.com

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.

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.

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.

Grinding noise when transmission is in neutral


That noise may be coming from your primary, not the tranny. Try adjusting the clutch, and (of course) make sure you have the correct amount of chaincase fluid in your primary. If that doesnt do it Change the trans fluid and see if that helps

Engine is poping (backfiring) when I let up throttle.


Most common cause of backfiring would be a vacuum leak....most common areas that develope leaks would be the manifold seals. I'd check there. To troubleshoot...warm up your engine and with it idling...spray some starter fluid on it and see if the engine speeds up. If it does... theres u're problem. While u're lookin around, check all your hoses for good connections and good rubber. If that doesnt do it...check your pipes for tight connection

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.

Transmission/clutch


It would be extremely helpful if I had the year and model, the clutches differ through the years and models, but I'll give it a go. There are going to be a couple of thing that can cause this. You will need to yank the primary to get to the clutch.
1- the ramp that works the push-rod clutch release is bad or the push-rod has punched through it. On the Sportsters this is a different type of mechanism and is located all on the primary side with the clutch. It will be easy to see if there is a problem with it. On the big twins the ramp is located on the tranny side, so you will have to remove the tranny cover to inspect the ramp and bearings. You can remove the push-rod through the center of the clutch hub, by removing the c-clip that hold the center adjustment for the clutch release. Inspect the push-rod for discoloration due to overheating on the ramp end or bad wear on either end due to being overtightened.
2- the clutch is gone, frictions are the main thing that go, but don't rule out having to replace the steels until you get it apart.To remove the clutch assembly, you will need to remove the primary chain. To do this you will need to slide the crank hub and the clutch assembly off at the same time, the chain will not allow you to slide one off with out the other, if it does then your primary chain has stretched and needs replaced. *IMPORTANT NOTE* The nut holding the clutch assembly is reverse thread, so do remember this when removing, otherwise you can damage or break the tranny shaft. Once you get the clutch assembly off, there is a special depression tool for getting the clutch plates out of the clutch hub. The hub is aluminum, so if you don't use the tool you can break an ear off and will have to get a new hub.

I know this sounds difficult, and it will be if it's you're first time, but don't let it scare you off of doing it yourself. I'm a firm believer in working on your own bike, I also believe HD is over priced (used to work for a dealership), along with most other shops. Working on your own bike is a tradition that most riders today have gotten away from. If you haven't worked on your own bikes before, start, you'll find that it gets easier with time, it's not that hard, and you'll enjoy having that sense of accomplishment. If you need anything else feel free to ask, and let me know what you find.
