I posted this question and my response to start a comments feed for everyone to let us know how to make Fix My Hog better.
We have over 65 hours of Harley how-to on the site and that breaks down to over 350 videos.
We cover Big Twin models from 1984(first year Evolution Engines) through today’s Twin Cams. We cover the Sportster from 1986 through today.
We categorized by topic in the Videos tab, like Maintenance and then by model, Touring, Softail/Dyna, Sportster.
We also have two video indexes.
Here are a few questions to think about as you read this post.
How do you look for videos on our site?
Suggestions on how we should organize our videos.
Suggestions for new videos for our site.
Since 2004 our goal has been to make wrenching easier for the at home wrench. We want riders to enjoy this lifestyle even more by turning a wrench and getting to know their Harley.
Anything we can do to make this experience better, we are all ears.
We look forward to your comments here and check back for my feedback.
Together we will continue to provide the best Harley how-to videos on the web.
Q: I went thru and looked at the videos AGAIN just making double sure that I had not missed something and I found no real tips that can help me with my bike. There are earlier mods than mine with carburetion fuel system and there are the newer fully electronic (cable-less) fuel injection systems but not one did I find with the fuel injection as mine has and fuel systems is something I am very interested in. My older bike I re-built from a wreck in 2000 and had to learn as I went due to lack of finances but I now know quite a bit about evo Sportsters. I know not much about this fuel injection system, I have fears of messing my newer bike(2007 Road King) up. It came with V & H dual with fish tips etc and a fuel pack but I did not attempt to cahnge anything about the way the bike sounded ( the way I wanted to ) until I had full knowledge of what to reset my fuel pack to. I would also be interested in aftermarket cams but I am quite a do – it myself `er and that is something I surely don’t want to muck up. My other bikes I had installed hi performance ignition system but again I know not about the proper way to go about that either. If there are no videos that can help me learn these things for my 07`twin cam road king ( flhr ) then I dont want to waste anymore of either of our time, I purchased the touring videos already when I 1st got my new scooter and they are the same as on the site. NO HELP FOR ME & MINE not trying to be rude just becoming frustrated.thank you
A: Hi Harley Rider,
I started Fix My Hog over 10 years ago to help guys like you and I. I apologize for the emails(back and forth) and maybe even for the lack of a defined index of videos on the site. I’m working on a new index.
You are correct we do not have a 2007 Road King on all the Touring videos.
Yes, many of the maintenance videos on the site are on the Touring Edition Part 1&2 DVDs.
You will follow these steps to maintain your 2007 Road King:http://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/touring-maintenance/
And an index:http://www.fixmyhog.com/harley-maintenance-schedule-touring-index/
To learn about advanced maintenance like rear belt R&R, caliper / master cylinder rebuilds, fuel filter and more check out these videos:http://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/touring-advanced-maintenance/
To learn about installing exhausts, air intakes, efi mapping systems follow these videos:http://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/touring-performance/
“V & H dual with fish tips etc and a fuel pack but i did not attempt to change any thing about the way the bike sounded ( the way i wanted to ) until i had full knowledge of what to reset my fuel pack to”
Follow these videos and make sure to check out the videos in the Style & Performance Upgrades section – Softail/Dyna and Sportster for more upgrades:
“i would also be interested in after market cams but i am quite a do – it myself `er and that is something i surely don’t want to muck up”
This class is the closest we have to a cam swap. When we updated the cam chain tensioners, we swapped the stock for Andrews.http://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/cam-chain-tensioner-shoe/
“my other bikes i had installed hi performance ignition system but again i know not about the proper way to go about that either .”
We do not have exact video on this for your model but many in the Electrical Class:http://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/electrical/
“NO HELP FOR ME & MINE not trying to be rude just becoming frustrated.thank you”
No worries and once again I hope the videos we do have help you out. Even though your exact model is not on each video the procedures are similar and with a service manual as a resource the differences should be clear.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
The one thing I do not want is a member that is not happy. We are trying to make wrenching easier for the at home wrench and we do not want riders smashing their computers saying we only frustrated them.
