    On these systems, oil is filtered on the return side, like I told you earlier. That of course means the oil tank and lines must be kept clean, clean, clean because that oil is going directly into the...

    They have a round thrust washer with no ears, about the same diameter as the one with ears.

    The difference in width of the front ends is in the trees, fork tubes are about 3/8" closer together on Heritage and Fat Boy. I don't know about the rest of the models.

    You should adjust the left spacer to center the rim and tire in the fork. That done, if the brake rotor is in the wrong place, you have the wrong hub for the front end. Heritage and Fat Boy front...

    If you have eliminated the carb/intake and the ignition to your own satisfaction, I would say you have a valve sticking. Or, you may have a tappet roller that is very bad, and the roller worn to the...

    All these old brake systems usually need rebuilding, not only the hydraulics but often the mounting system for the calipers. Attention to detail is important. Bleeding these systems can often be...

    No problem whatsoever. That little wear mark in the case is often there. Your diagnosis is correct, not enough end play.
    Forget the manual, set it up for .010 plus or minus .003 and you will be...

    Yes, that can be done. A friend even swapped in an Ultima 6 speed, although that necessitated some grinding on the case.

    It was a ball thrust bearing I liberated from work. More like the wafer release bearing. Ran good. It was in the transmission when I sold the bike.

    Well, you don't grease caliper pistons. You want to keep petroleum products away from brake components, even when you are cleaning them up or rebuilding. Use brake cleaner, alcohol, and brake fluid...

    WOW! WOW!

    That is BAD! Who would install such a thing?

    (I don't ask who would sell such junk, because I know the Chinks just do not care.)

    Oil feed, or supply, can be to the bottom of the pump cover as in your picture, so that's OK.

    Return should be to a filter, and then to the oil tank.

    Vent line from the case just above the oil...

    If it has been sitting, the motor may just be wet sumped. The problem will probably go away once you put the bike into regular service. Most H-D motors will wet sump after sitting for a long time, ...

    Oil pump is not scavenging oil at a rate great enough to keep the cam chest empty? Do you have an oil filter on the return side of the system, or some other obstruction? It should not be puking oil...

    I don't understand your neutral lamp or turn indicator lamp wiring. In your diagram neither makes any sense.

    I don't think that is gonna fly. I believe the pivot mounting of the swingarm was changed between those years, and there is no interchange possible.

    You will note on those XLs that the battery negative cable fastens to the top left rear motor mount bolt. So, that takes care of motor and frame ground at the same time.

    I prefer to wire 30 directly to the main breaker rather than have that circuit go through the ignition switch. If the start button is switched 12V, it is a safe way to do it, and you get full batt...

    I don't warm up vehicles before operation, just run them easy until warmed up. I think that is the modern approach to the issue.

    H-D style external cable throttle controls include a friction spring and screw that can be used to set a fast idle when the motor is cold. I also like that feature for hiway running as it allows me...
