What color did Harley Davidson use before orange and black?

Orange and black have always been Harley's official colors (as used on the Bar & Shield logo that the Davidson brothers' Aunt Janet designed), but the first motorcycles were painted black, followed by Renault grey in 1906, followed by olive green in 1917. After 1922 color choices became more varied and paint colors offered changed each year, along with pinstripe options.

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1999 Fatboy Harley Davidson?

First loosen the cable adjuster to give as much slack as possible (basically you're shortening the cable sheath). Then remove the derby cover (large round dome-shaped cover on the chaincase). In the center of the clutch you'll see the adjuster screw with a locknut. Loosen the locknut with an 11/16 wrench and back the adjuster screw out a couple of turns using a 7/32" Allen wrench.

Now turn the adjuster screw inward (clockwise) until it bottoms out, but not real hard. Then back the screw out 1/2 to 3/4 turn and while holding the adjuster screw in that position with the Allen wrench, tighten the locknut securely. Put the derby cover back on.

Now adjust the cable so that there's 1/16" to 1/8" (less is better) inch of play between the ferrule (that's the cable's "collar" at the lever end) and the lever bracket. To get an accurate reading, use one hand to pull the sheath away from the lever bracket while working the lever back & forth with the other hand.

Many people like to adjust their clutch cable so that the clutch engages/disengages when the lever's very close to the grip (so they don't have to reach their fingers as far), but that can cause clunky shifting and difficulty finding neutral because the clutch needs as much travel as possible for the clutch plates to fully separate (disengage). You want the very minimum of free play in the lever, in other words the lever should move only a tiny amount before the clutch starts to disengage.

The only reason you need any free play at all is so there's no undue stress on the throwout bearing (located on the right end of the clutch pushrod).

Don't adjust your clutch for comfort, adjust it for performance. At least 80% of all Harley shifting problems are caused by clutch drag from improper adjustment.

Most stock Harleys will be 1 down; shifter all the way to the bottom, and then half up to neutral, then depending on the number of gears, 2-3-4-5 the rest are all up.

How many quarts of transmission oil in 1983 280zx?

Generally for an automatic 5 compleatly empty, but remember when you drain the pan the fluid from the torque converter doesnt come out so a normal change sould be more like 3.5 qts. On a manual drain the fluid into a bucket and measure how much came out, then replace the same amount with new fluid.

Where is speedometer drive located on a Harley 4 speed transmission?

The speedometer drive is not installed on all 4-speed transmissions. On models with the transmission drive installed, the speedometer cable attachment point is on the front left side of the transmission, about midpoint vertically on the case. There is a part mounted on the front that the speedometer cable screws on to. If you look down below the shifter linkage in the vicinity of the starter solenoid, you will be able to see the location of the speedometer drive below the neutral switch. On some models, the mounting boss has not been machined and is blocked off. This was typically done on FX models.

Car Batteries

Motorcycle battery overheating?

check voltage across battery and the crank motorcycle and run at high idle or ride aound the block and come back and check voltage across the battery again at high idle without shutting down the engine. this will stabilize the battery from the starting cycle. you really want to see around 13.8 to 14.2 volts, if not, could be a bad regulator. if your lights are brighter than normal it probably is. before you replace the regulator, remove the battery and have it tested. most auto parts stores will do this free of charge. if you have marginal cells, the battery will over heat.
