Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHTC Electra Glide Classic

How do you add air to the rear suspension of 1993 Harley Davidson FHLTC

I am trying to find the valve to add air to my 1993 HD FLHTC Electra Glide Classic. Purchased used 2 months ago and it is starting to bottom out when I am two up with my wife. I found what I believe is the valve for the front suspension on the lower right directly below the riders seat. I was told by the dealership (not an HD dealer) that the valve for the rear was between the rear fender and one of the saddle bags. But I can't see it. Do I have to take one of the bags off to get at it?

    I found the solution myself by sending an email to HOG. They relayed it to my local HD dealer. I know what the pressure should be. I can't find the valves to put the air in. I did find one, left side below the drivers seat. Did not know it was the front or the rear. Was told the rear was between the right saddle bag and the rear fender. Not there. The one below the seat is the one for the rear suspension. The one for the front is on the end of the left hand grip. You don't see it unless you look for it there. I was looking near the shocks and on the fairing. And the response for torque...where do you get torque from a question asking how to add air to rear suspension system? Thank for the useless answers.

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

SOURCE: 2001 electra glide classic rear shock length

Harley usually uses a 12.5" shock but that could change from model to model and they don't list "shock length" in their specs. The best thing you could do it go to a dealer or find someone that has a stock bike and measure the front end height and rear shock length. Sorry but that's all I got.

Good Luck

SOURCE: how to ofill the primary case on a2003

Stand the bike straight up, Remove the derby cover. Fill the primary up with oil until the oil barely touches the lower edge of the clutch spring. The clutch spring is a flat dark colored piece of metal inside the bright aluminum clutch outer shell. Do Not overfill. If you do, your clutch will drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck
