SOURCE: fuel pump?

the fuel pump for your 2000 fuel injected road king is located in the fuel tank. you will have to remove the speedometer housing, by first removing the seat, then remove the one small screw near the seat that holds the speedometer housing in place, also remove the small screw at the front of the speedometer housing and lift the housing off the tank and disconnect the wiring that goes to the back of the speedometer. there is a large oval shaped gold in appearance plate on top of the fuel tank. this plate is what the fuel pump is mounted to.

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

SOURCE: 2009 Dyna Super Glide Custom starting problems:

Does the start quit turning or does it continue to sound like it's turning? If the starter quits turning, I'd suspect the battery. Take it out and have it tested. Usually no charge for this service at most any auto parts house.

If the starter sounds like it's still turning but the engine isn't, that's an indication that the "starter clutch" is bad inside the starter. This is the "one way bearing" unit that turns the engine to start it but then freewheels when the engine starts. I've seen many of them go bad. If the bike is still under warranty, take it back to the dealer before the warranty runs out. At least have a documented complaint of the problem within the warranty period. That way, if the warranty runs out you may can still get it fixed under the warranty.

SOURCE: 99 Harley FLHTCU EFI, engine occasionally dies, on

Sometimes there is adaquate pressure and we don't hear the pump, but it does pump while crank and running. A couple of things here, one is the fuel filter, etc. and battery. You did not say how many miles are on the bie, somethings like the fuel filter are usually replaced based on mileage; while depending whee you are 3 years on a battery is about all you can expect.
The reasons why the bike dies can be many, especially at low RPM or idle. Check your air filter, replace if needed. Change your plugs if they are questionable. Change your fuel filter if you have 40K miles on the bike. Unfortunately you could have a range of sensors that are "tired" or about to go bad if the problem persist. The easiest thing to do is take to your dealer if after changing plugs, fuel filter, and air cleaner doesn't help. The dealer will hace the specialty tools to test the sensors and other components that may be in question. Usually they can determine what needs to be done in less than an hour.
Hope this helps.

2007 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide fuel injectors loose fire after revving engine @

Hi, Anonymous fuel injectors fail either electronically due to faulty connection/internal electronic failure or mechanical malfunction pintle stuck due to dirt, grime, and or ethanol sludge. Since some injectors can run $100 or more so it's best to try and resolve the electrical or mechanical issue if possible. The first thing you need to do is check the fuses or the fuel injection system relay, for continuity then the injector connection with a test light by turning the ignition switch off and on if there is no continuity backtrack to the ignition switch until you find the bad connection, if ok remove the injector and check it with test leads off your battery for function by touching then removing one of the leads if the injector is functioning properly you will hear and feel the click. If there is no click the pintle could be stuck in the open position due to contamination. If you are on a budget I "HIGHLY" recommend the services of "InjectorRx" above any DIY method, they can repair your injector to optimum performance for only $18 and if it is not repairable there is no charge. There are DIY methods on youtube but there is no guarantee they will work or last any amount of time. Here is what Injector Rx can do for you:
1. The injectors are checked for resistance. If they fail the ohm test they will notify you that your injectors have failed and should be replaced.
2. The injectors are then checked for external cracks and or damage.
3. The injector is now externally cleaned and prepared for the flow test bench.
4. The Fuel injectors are flow tested and the results are recorded.
5. O-rings and filter baskets are removed if possible.
6. The fuel injectors are now placed in an ultrasonic cleaning bath where they are pulsed open and closed for 30 - 40 minutes.
7. The injectors are removed from the ultrasonic cleaning bath and then backflushed to remove any additional grime or dirt.
8. New O-rings and filter baskets are installed (if and when available).
9. The fuel injectors are now tested for spray pattern and atomization.
10. The injectors are once again flow tested, The results are recorded and compared to see if the injector flows properly.
11. If the injectors fail a second cleaning session will be attempted.
12. Once cleanings are finalized the fuel injectors are lubricated and placed in a sealed bag.
13. A flowsheet is prepared and shipped with the injector.
Since they do not sell fuel injectors you can be assured that they will do everything possible to get your motorcycles fuel injector to perform as it should. If they don't succeed they will not charge you for their time.
If you prefer the DIY method then I recommend the test wires to open the injector and spray carburetor cleaner with the straw nozzle inserted in the pressurized end, give it a good bath with 3-4 healthy squirts, then blow dry with compressed air, repeat this procedure as necessary depending on the severity of contamination. For future protection, I would recommend pouring in a bottle of Sea Foam Fuel System Cleaner in your fuel tank before your next fill-up and every 2,500 miles thereafter.
