Thanks for the comments everyone. I took the photos using a point and shoot Sony that my ex-wife has. I brought my D40 home from work, but the battery was dead.

Awesome!

I couldn't see the pics the first time I viewed the thread. Logged out and then back in. Pics showed fine.

Used Windows Media Player to see the vid.

...and I'm one of them. Excellent write up Lan , rates a sticky .
One question...when you say rotate the engine counter clockwise that is while viewing it from the clutch side of the bike, right?

'05 Vulcan 1600 Classic
'03 Volusia ( '07 to '10)

Fantastic write up, great pics, and video too? Dosn't get any better than that.

That's great too, I would not ask my ex-wife for anything that even sounded like "point and shoot". (she actually did that once, lousy aim)

When I want to read a really good Harley thread, I just turn to VolusiaRiders.com

Great work man, it's on my to do list, and you have made the job a whole lot easier. Good stuff.

Blessed with a gorgeous wife and seven children, a Delica and a 2001 Volusia.

just adjusted the valve by following the "valves 101" thank you very much for the post, my clymer manual was telling me to rotate the engine clockwise, but i rotated counter-clockwise, only mistake i made was i thought i had to remove all of the chrome engine covers,but when i removed the long bolt i relized that i should not have touch this cover and put the bolt back. i purchased my 06 c50 with 600 miles and was not sure if the valves where ever done, after removing the tank i found that the clamp that attaches the air intake boot to the carb was completely loose, only one valve was slightly light, but glad i got that clamp tightened up, thanks again.

Thank you for the great write up, does the bike have to be off the ground? I do not have a jack, thank you for a reply, MJ

Now ride a, 2006 Vulcan, Had a 03 Volusia, with Harley fairing, on MS Windshield, VA lowers, HD Floor boards, Risers, Mustang Seats, Hard Trunk and Saddlebags, Hamling Drive, Drilled baffles, re-jetted, chrome pieces here and there. The Volusia was one of the best bikes I ever had! Hope my new to me Vulcan is has great. Best bike you can have: Paid for, runs good, modifying done, and you make time to ride it!
