Jagg and Ultra-Cool make fan assisted cooler kits, not sure if one could just get their fan kit and add-on to a factory cooler

General / Re: Low Fuel Level Light Staying on
« Last post by billbuilds on Today at 04:32:30 AM »
I just went through this with 2005 FLHTCI. Pulled fuel level sender from tank and checked it. I could get lfl light to go out while moving float. Level sender is not same voltage as fuel pump. The low level light is controled  in speedo.

     Well now I'm a bit confused. You say that you could get you low fuel level light to go out by moving the float then you say that the low fuel light is controlled in the speedo. Where does the LFL get its signal from? Coyote says that both the fuel gauge (mounted in false left side gas cap) and the low fuel level light in the speedo get their signal from the same source: I would assume that to be the fuel level sending unit in the tank. I see that the earlier RK models had a low fuel level light relay, don't see one for my 2011.

General / Re: Rear Axle Adjustment Cam
« Last post by PoorUB on Yesterday at 08:37:38 PM »
I had an '05, '10 and a '16 with the cam adjustment. I disregarded the factory procedure for torquing the axle and did this, Set the belt tension a bit too loose. Push the tire forward against the cams. Tighten the axle to 75 ftlbs. The higher initial torque helps keep the axle from moving around while doing the belt tension and the final torque. Then adjust the belt tension by turning the axle. Put a backup wrench on the axle to keep it from spinning and torque the axle to 125 ftlbs.

Both cams will be against the stops. I never noticed any problems doing it this way. The higher torque keep he axle from moving.

Pan Head / Re: New top-end...
« Last post by CraigArizona85248 on Yesterday at 07:26:36 PM »
Oh boy. This top-end refresh is fighting me. I installed the jugs and heads. The I was installing the pushrods. I got the adjusted and I was rotating the motor over by hand when I heard a slight "ting" sound. It's the valves on the front head touching ever so slightly during the overlap at the end of the exhaust stroke. If I was running a stock cam, this wouldn't happen. But I'm running a Crane 296A and it has more overlap than a stock cam. The rear head doesn't seem to be an issue but its bound to still be too close to run it. I'm going to take the heads to a local guy who has worked on pan heads and have him do a little work to get the clearance I need. So the heads will come off again. What's acouple more hours in the garage, right.  :hyst:

     If the fuel level sending unit is good, which it appears to be as the fuel gauge is working and apparently the LFL light also gets its signal from the fuel level sending unit would it be safe to assume that there is a problem with the speedo?  It looks like a black ground wire and pink power wire from fuel level sending unit to gas cap fuel gauge. I'm having touble figuring which wire carries the signal to the LFL light via the speedo.

I once threw away a good speedo from a 2002 FLHTP and later found it was the wiring by the frame neck.  Have seen it a couple of other times since.

The fuel level and low fuel indicators are completely separate indicators. They both receive the same signal though. The speedo determines when to light the low fuel lamp.

General / Low Fuel Level Light Staying on
« Last post by billbuilds on Yesterday at 03:25:52 PM »
      The tank fuel gauge in my 2011 Road King reads just over half full though there appears to be close to 4 gallons in the tank. The thing is the low fuel level indicator light on the speedo is on. This is a real recent issue, it has always come on when down to about 1.5 gallons. Any idea on why it might be staying on?

Twin Cam / Re: Reaching out again. Dyna TB
« Last post by 04 SE Deuce on Yesterday at 02:10:50 PM »
Anyone else miss the Kury 57mm.  They flat out worked and where inexpensive.

Mike's stuff never came into favor like "lifter/cam of the month" with the crowd.  People argued and wouldn't even accept when he explained that a larger TB wasn't same/same as a too big carb. Look at what is common now.  Would have been nice to see what he could have developed over time had he gotten some support versus the "don't knows" dissing solid performance.
