xxPossible Votage Regulator Issue

I recently picked up a relatively stock FXR that needed some TLC. Got the carb sorted out and it starts and runs. The one issue I've noticed is that the headlight dims down very low at idle and the bike seems to be struggling to hold idle. Looks like the coil was replaced with a Screaming Eagle after-market deal. If I rev it up a bit the light regains its brightness and the motor is much happier, but after a minute or so the idle drops along with the headlight. I do have the idle up around 1,000 rpm to keep it running. Thinking it could be related to a bad voltage regulator, but not sure how to check this. This bike also has the VOES for advance. Any help would be appreciated!

My husband and I have been riding Harleys since 2009. He actually was a rider back in high school and college, riding a little Honda. I never rode my own until 2009 when I took the basic rider course. A week later I got a brand new Heritage. My husband had gotten a new Ultra Classic 2 1/2 months earlier. He got a 2011 barely used chromed out Fat Boy in 2011 and then in 2013, I got a new Street Glide. I did sadly sell the Heritage after I had gotten it tastefully chromed out. We have enjoyed riding locally as well as some super fantastic trips in the southeast and a trip to Sturgis in 2013.

Go ahead hammer on me, but I can't hold it and actually I am mad with Harley designing group. :mad:

Yesterday, I stopped by my local dealer, and I had a chance to look over several 2014 touring models on the showroom.
I personally don't like the new design at all. The round and smooth corners and angles of the new bikes have totally turned me off; they are so ugly to me. ;D
If I am not a Harley rider, I'm probably mistaken it is a Jap bike.  There is no strong angle and straight line to show the "macho" of an American bike in 2014 touring models.
f**K that, I will keep my air cooled bike as long as I can.  Unless the design will be different later.
That's it! I feel better now.

This turn out an easy task, even though, it is time consuming.  At least to the first timer like me.
I still like to record the process for those who don't have mechanical knowledge like me.  I guess, thinking of the money that I have to pay to the stealer have pushed me to do this.

The result:  I am very happy that I now have a better reach, and more comfortable on my arms.

So here is the process.

Required Tools
  • A motorcycle/ATV lift.  It doesn't what type, you need one, because you will work on your bike for many more projects.  I prefer ATV lift, because it usually has a greater lift load.  Buy a set of frame protectors (orange color) from HD, so you don't damage your beautiful bike frame, and prevent corrosion from scratches.
  • Torx wrenches
  • Allen Wrenches
  • One (1) large towel, and two (2) long socks
  • Service manual.  Even though, you may not not need it in this task.
Step by Step.  Here we go!

  • Put the bike and balance on the lift.  You only need to lift the front wheel barely off the ground, and that's it!
  • Remove the left saddle bag, then the left cover, so you can disconnect the main fuse (big red fuse.  you can not miss it). If you have a HD add-on security system, and the siren may go off as soon as you disconnect the main fuse.  In this case, turn the ignition knob to "Ignition", wait for a few seconds, then remove the main fuse.  You now can turn ignition knob to "off" position.  Remember to have the FOB with you all the time, during the process.
  • Cover the front fender with the large towel, and the two parsing lamps with the two (2) long socks.

  • Remove two (2) torx screws, which are located just slightly low right of the speaker, at both sides.  Com'on you can find it  You don't need to remove any wind deflectors, and/or any lower fairing.  Take your time.
      Click image to enlarge
  • Remove the two (2) torx screws, which are located, kinda hidden, behind the forks.  Turn the handle bar all the way left to see one, and all the way right to see the other.  They are there alone, so you cannot be mistaken.


    Click image to enlarge
  • There are three (3) torx screws that hold the windshield.  Of course, you can see it without a manual. :) Remove the two (2) outside first, then loosen the middle screw, and you will be able to remove the windshield straight up. Put the windshield in a safe place, and remove the middle screw.
  • Don't worry that the fairing will drop down on the fender.  No way that will happen as many guys have been threatening you. :)
  • Disconnect the headlight connector to free fairing from the bike.

xxTouring and saddle bag insert liner bags

SOLD

Brand new OEM 3 pieces of liner bags (1 tour bag and 2 saddle bag liners) and a carrying shoulder trap that came with my 2010 ultra limited.
 I don't know what other models they will fit, but I believe they should fit all the touring models up to 2013, as I don't see any difference in terms of shape and size of the tour and saddle bags from 2010 - 2013. Of course, I am not sure.
 
 I've never installed or used and I don't need them, so here is the sale, $120 OBO plus shipping (~$25 ship with USPS std postage in continental states).
 Thanks for reading
 Nick
