My harley wont stay running when you letgo of start button


Hi Keith, make sure your battery ground cable has clean and tight connections at both ends. Try checking your fuel pump relay for integrity by switching it to the starter relay position after you remove the starter relay, if the bike turns over then your fuel pump relay is probably ok.

Harley Evo blowing oil through air filter. Isn't


Well, there is an "umbrella valve" in each of the center sections of the rocker box. These can and do get brittle from the repeated heating and cooling. They do a good job of keeping the bulk of oil out of the air filter but they can't get it all. As will all previous Harleys, they blow a bit of oil and those that relieve their crankcase pressure into the air filter do still make a mess that must be cleaned out occasionally. But, it shouldn't be excessive. Excessive blowby on the rings can exaggerate the problem.

To replace the "umbrella valves", simply take the bolts out of the rocker box cover and replace the gaskets and the valve. You will have to pull the fuel tanks to do this job.

Good Luck
Steve

Were is the fuel filter located on a harley davidson 1998 heritage softail very sluggish an hard to start wont idle properly an back fires at times


Filter is in the fuel tank attached to the fuel petcock. Check your intake gaskts for an air leak. Get the bike running and squirt some brake clean near the intake seals and see if the bike dies or idle increases, but dont squirt too much to get sucked in the air cleaner. Also check the vacuum lines going from the fuel petcock to the carb for dry rotted or loose connections.

2000 FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic: 2001 heritage is blowing oil through breather.why?...


All Harleys after the year 1992 will have some engine oil carry over visible in the air cleaner though there is a diffrence between excessive and normal although if you get on your bike and travel down the highway at a constant 80+ MPH you will find that you get more carry over to the air cleaner then you would normally riding at lower speeds and this is simply cause you are running the engine harder and therefore you will see more carry over at the air cleaner. Now to be sure, make sure your bike is sitting on level pavement and in the case of a Softtail model it should also be upright and level pull the dipstick from the oil tank and wipe it clean, reinsert fully into the oil tank and remove it again and look to see if your oil level is roughly halfway between the check marks on the dipstick. If so then yes your oil level is good. I would now remove the air cleaner cover and wash any excess oil out of it and if your running a stock air filter and you have had a oil carry over issue for awhile now, then replace the air filter, reinstall the air cleaner cover and go ride the bike for around 50 miles and by ride the bike I mean go ride it like in town and on the highway without being abusive to it or excessive speeds(70 mph). Then remove your air cleaner cover again after your test ride and look to see if you have any oil carry over in the air cleaner. if so let me know and we can go into further detail.

Where is my air/fuel mix on my 2001 Harley Davidson heritage classic softail classic?


It should be on the bottom of the carb. If it has never been adjusted before, there is a plug in the hole. You need to run a small self taping screw into the plug and then pull it out to access the mixture screw.
