SOURCE: HOW DO I REMOVE IGNITION SWITCH/FORK LOCK?

Look under the switch knob for a small square pin sticking down.  You need to push this pin up while turning the key to the left, and pushing this pin in will allow the lock cylinder to turn which releases the tab that holds the entire ignition knob into the bike.  I usually push this tab with one of those small pocket screwdrivers.  re-Installing the switch can be a real pain unless you make sure not to move anything while it is out, and even then the first time will be rather frustrating.  Let me know if you need more help re-installing it.

SOURCE: replace harley fork lock

I would check with your local dealer to see if your lock is covered under the recall. Look to see if your lock has white on it. If it does then there's a good chance you can get it replaced for free. Other than that you need specialty tools to re align the internals of the lock to remove the top section. But to remove the top lock section you turn the lock all the way to the right. Push the pin ( under the top section ) in with a little flat head screwdriver, the while holding it in turn the ignition all the way to the left. It will pop up due to spring pressure.You can use a medium flathead screwdriver to turn the ignition off at that time

Remove the top yoke/ fork clamp nut and clamp bolts, then the handle bar clamps, remove circlips from fork tops if it has any (remove fork caps if their diameter is larger the that of the fork tubes leave if thay are the same) slide the top yoke off past steering lock unclip switch wiring coupler.

I am having trouble changing the fork lock on my 2000 heritage soft tail.My ignition switch went bad so I bought a kit from my HD dealer. The kit came with switch, plastic plug, and fork lock. I changed...


Ok, this is what the service manual says.

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.
2. Loosen fork stem bolt. Let fork stem drop approx. 5 inches. (127mm)

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug.
4. Unscrew set screw
5. Insert key in lock and turn partially
6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.
7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.

Good Luck

How to remove 2004 softail fork lock


I don't have the instructions for the Softail but I do for the Dyna series bikes. I'm pretty sure it'll be the same.

Loosen the upper triple tree clamp pinch bolts and remove the upper triple tree and handlebars.

Raise the front end off the ground and loosen the fork stem bolt and allow the front fork assembly to drop down approximately 5 inches.

On the left side of the steering stem thare is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into to steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

Now, there is a set screw that holds the lock into the frame steering head. The set screw screws upward into a recess in the lock mechanism. The set screw is covered by a lead plug so that it is not easily seen or gotten to. The book says to use a scribe to remove the lead plug.

Unscrew set screw.

Insert a key into the lock and turn slightly

Wiggle and pull the lock assembly until you get it worked out far enough to get hold of the lock with a pair of pliers or something.

Rotate the steering stem slightly until the lock comes out.


Good Luck
Steve

You have to loosen the upper triple clamp pinch bolts and remove the upper triple tree and handlebars. Loosen the fork stem bolt and let the fork stem drop down approx. 5 inches. Then your lock will come out.

Note: On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

Replace damaged front fork lock on a 1996 harley davidson FXDS-CONV.


Ok, this is how you replace the lock on the front end.

1.Loosen upper triple tree clamp pinch bolts. Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.

2.Loosen fork stem bolt and let fork stem drop down approx. 5 inches.

Note: On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Use a scribe and remove lead plug. (there is a flat looking place below the key lock. The lead plug is underneath this and it hides a set screw. Dig the lead plug out to get to the set screw)

4.Unscrew the set screw

5.Insert key in lock and turn partially.

6.Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.

7.Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on lock until lock is removed.

INSTALLATION

General
There is an internal boss in the left side of the steering head opposite the external boss. The end of the lock fits into this internal boss.

There is a hole in the bottom of the lock into which the set screw fits. This hole must be at the bottom when the lock is installed.

When the lock is correctly installed, a forward-facing flat on the lock will fit against a flat inside the external lock boss and the face of the lock will be flush with the face of the external boss.

1.Steering stem should be in above position. See steps 1 and 2 above.

2.Grease the end of the lock (the part that goes into the internal boss) and slide lock into external boss.

Note: Steering stem must be in locked fork position.

3. Move steering stem into locked fork postition. Rotate steering stem sligtly, while fully installing lock.

4.use Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and install set screw

5.Use key in the lock and tighen set scrw until lock begins to bind; then back set screw out 1/2 turn.

6.Pound in lead plug (or use a good quality sealant)

7. Install fork stem, upper triple clamp and handlebars.

Right out of the book. Hope it helps. Good Luck.

Replace harley fork lock


The fork lock is part of the ignition switch assembly. You have to remove the swich (tricky little button under the switch with the switch in accessory position I think) after which you remove that lower inner fairing schroud that has your rear speaker, cruise, accessory, and passing lamp switches. then remove the lock. The lock has a harness that needs to be unplugged. I'm uncertian if the outer fairing needs to be removed to unplug. you will know when you go to unplug it.
