Tools, tools and more tools. Bob gives us a great overview on some of the basic tools we need to service our Harley-Davidson from oil-change to custom part install. They are readily available and you might have most of them in your garage already. Bob shows us that tools are only part of what we need to gather. He shows us that the factory service manual for our year and model Harley-Davidson is a must along with Loctite, fluids, air cleaners, oil filters, spark plugs and more. We should have all these in place before we start any service or upgrade on our motorcycles.
Bob and Mark show you how to remove and replace the Harley front wheel on your Sportster. They teach you the proper way to take off the brake caliper and wheel axle so you can do whatever you need to do to the front tire. Once the wheel is off you can replace the tire, retrue the spokes or check the rotor.Watch Now >>
Bob and Mark demonstrate the process for lubricating your Harley’s steering head bearings and adjusting the fall-away. As always, Bob stresses the importance of adequately prepping all bolts, consulting your user manual to be sure everything is done correctly, covering any painted areas on the bike and, if possible, working with two sets of hands.Watch Now >>
