Clutch repair 96 harley

I have a 96 harley and I got a new clutch from the dealership. They assured me it will fit. I took off the necessary parts to mount it and it goes on the post but the threads clearly wont be exposed enough to put the nut on. The guy told me they don't make the clutch assembly like they did in 96 and have updated it with the new clutch. I put the chain on for another test and the compensator spocket is far to short to make it to the post. I really need some help here and I'm 99.9 % Sure they gave me the wrong clutch. 
thank you

Well, you can be 100% sure that this is the wrong clutch. Set the two side by side and you should be able to notice the difference. Take your old assembly with you, and have them match it up. 95-96 were somewhat transition years, especially the 95. However, depending on the model, the 94-99 clutch assembly should work. If you want to get back to me with the your model, and the exact parts you need, I'll see if I can get the exact part numbers for you.

I replaced the clutch in a 1996 pontiac grand am gt now the clutch petal goes allthe way to the floor and wont retract itself


Find out if this is a hydraulic clutch. Being a 2005, it most likely is and sounds like your slave cylinder went out. I'm not sure where this is on your car, however it is usually mounted on the driver side firewall below the brake mastercylinder (brake fluid resevoir).
If it is not located here (call an auto parts dealer for location, and a repair manual) then you may have an internal slave cylinder which is located in the transmission with the throwout bearing. You will need to pull the passenger side drive axle, seperate the transmission from the engine (if front wheel drive) to replace.
Inquire with your local auto parts dealer or dealership for further details and repair options, and if this is actually the issue. If it's internal, look for a puddle directly below the engine. If the slave cylinder went out, then you'll have a puddle under the engine.
Also, if the slave cylinder (if hydraulic) is mounted to the firewall, either it is bad and needs replaced; needs to be bled (like brakes) or you may not have put the throwout bearing on correctly and it came loose.
Again, inquire with the dealership or an auto parts dealer for details (or a certified mechanic for repairs).
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How do i change my clutch and plates on a 1996 harley davidson roadking


On your '96 model, you need a special tool to disassemble the clutch pack. The tool is # HD-38515A clutch spring compression tool. Jim's and several other manufacturers make this tool. JP Cycle has a Jim's Part Number: 620-198 for $50.

Disconnect the battery and drain the primary. Remove any floorboards and other thing necessary to get the outer primary cover off. Using the above mentioned tool, compress the clutch spring and remove the lock ring that holds the spring in. Take note that there is a lock ring seat on top of the spring. This part is like a solid ring that goes behind the lock ring. It is "L" shaped so pay particular attention to the way it is positioned. Once you get the lock ring off, release the tension on the tool and allow the spring to come out of the clutch outer drum. Start taking the old disc out and laying them aside. Notice where the "sping plate" goes in the clutch stack. Replace it in the same position. Soak your new plates in oil overnight and then install them into the clutch drum exactly like the old ones came out. Install the spring and use the compression tool to install the lock ring and seat.

Adjust the clutch according to service manual directions and replace the outer primary cover. Add oil and reconnect the battery.

Ride Safe

2002 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy how to install the starter


Hi, Devanejr there is a term in the manufacturing industry called " A Stack Up Of Tolerances" basically what this means is any part that is made or machined has very specific measurements, and can be as finite as 1 ten thousandths of an inch or 0.0001" that being said all measurements have a plus or minus number that is acceptable to fit other parts. Example an engine cylinder may have a finished measurement of 3.750" plus or minus 0.002" and the piston has a finished measurement of 3.748" plus or minus 0.002" now if you try to install a 3.748" plus 0.002" tolerance = 3.750 piston in a 3.750" minus 0.002" tolerance = 3.748" cylinder it won't fit because the piston is bigger than the cylinder. This is an extreme hypothetical example but I have seen it happen a couple of times in my 40 years of turning wrenches on motorcycles.
In your case, the starter mating surface could be off angle or the mounting holes are at the minus tolerance and the ring gear is in the plus tolerance. I would start with a 0.005" shim a the top of the starter motor to offset the negative angle to the ring gear, keeping an eye on the wear pattern, adjust the shim thickness as necessary.

Noise clutch at idle and I have the bike in neutral


the noise you are hearing is trans gear roll over clatter and is normal on this cycle, make sure the the crankcase is full and also make sure the engine is at the correct idle speed, slow idle can make this much louder.
