Bob and Mark show us an all-in-one kit for performance slip-on exhaust, mapping and air intake. The remove the stock mufflers and install the new slip-on exhaust with a new torca clap. They move up to remove the stock air cleaner and backing plate. They unplug the throttle position sensor and the intake air temperature sensor and install FI control harness. They wire in the FI control harness into the ECM harness. Their next move is to the install the custom air intake, re-install the fuel tank and dash. They calibrate the FI control before the motorcycle is started.
Bob and Mark demonstrate the best way to empty Harley fork oil from your Sportster’s front fork sliders and replace it with new oil. It can be a two-man job, so try to complete the service with a friend. Newer bikes mostly use 39-millimeter forks, but most bikes are preset with varying levels of spring in the sliders, so consult your manual before you begin this service. Like any other service, you should clean all of the parts that you remove with parts cleaner to ensure that your bike operates smoothly between services.Watch Now >>
Bob demonstrates the proper technique for checking, servicing and replacing Harley brakes on the rear wheel caliper of your Harley Sportster. He shows how to loosen the caliper, remove the brake pads and install a new set. Once they are in place, he pumps the rear brakes to make sure the caliper is making solid contact with the wheel and checks the fluid reservoir. If the fluid level is low, you should either bleed the brakes or replace the fluid. More Maintenance Videos are listed here.Watch Now >>
In this quick demonstration of the Harley Sportster battery removal, you’ll learn how to remove your bike’s seat and side cover so you can check on the condition of your battery and its operating components. It is strongly recommended that you remove the negative cable of the battery first and replace it last when servicing your bike. If you remove the positive cable first, you risk causing a dangerous spark if the battery comes in contact with your bike’s frame. Bob has been dealing with these batteries for years and removes the neg from the battery. If this is your first time, we highly suggest removing neg from ground stud on the crankcase boss(see images)with wobble extension.Watch Now >>
