The Vendor shall use the custom wiring specifications from the current model year Harley-Davidson set ups. One fully outfitted 2005 model is being decommissioned and may be used as a model for 2006 set up. 2. Attach custom tray, rear box, and custom electronics box to rear mount. Rear box should be attached to the rear of the motorcycle using no more than four mounting holes. The rear box shall be adjusted to the officer assigned to the motorcycle by moving it forward or to the rear and by using spacers to elevate the box for saddlebag lid clearance. 3. Install custom brackets for radio, radar/lidar, flashlight and rear box tray. Brackets from changed-out motorcycles can be used on the new motorcycles and vendor shall modify or reinforce to correct metal fatigue as necessary to maintain functionality. 4. Install all components in the rear electronic box to facilitate repairs and maximize available storage space. These components include power source for cell phone, two-way radio, opticom power supply and auxiliary fuse panel. 5. Set handlebars, hand controls and position of rear tour pack to proper height and alignment for assigned rider. 6. A 5-sided box (base and 4 sides) metal frame is included in 2004 models and will be re fabricated into a 3- sided box (base and 2 sides) and painted black by the Vendor to match existing 2005 models. This arrangement shall allow for a full-size closed-face “Syncrotec” helmet to be stored in the rear tour pack in addition to mounted specialized equipment.

If hydraulic, check fluid level and correct if necessary (DOT 4 fluid only). Engine: Check and correct the engine oil level. Fuel system: Check fuel tank, carburetor, fuel valve and all hoses for leaks. Throttle system: Check for correct throttle cable routing. Throttle operates smoothly and self-returns to idle from all handlebar positions. Wheels/tires: Check wheels, tires and valve stem for damage, etc. Check and adjust tire pressures. 11 Suspension: Check for smooth suspension operation. Lubricate all grease points using correct specification grease. Check for correct suspension adjustments. Inspect fork and shock seals for leaks. Steering: Check for smooth steering operation and handlebar bearings for proper adjustments. Electrical Systems: Check for correct function of all side, headlight (high/low beam) and taillights, turn indicators, brake lights, warning lights and instrument illumination. Check for correct horn operation. Check harnesses for correct routing. Check for correct function of starter lockout system. Check for correct engine stop switch operation. Check for correct function of the low oil warning light. (2 stroke only) Emission Systems: Check connections and hoses for routing and kinks.
12 Fastening hardware: Check front and rear axle nut and bolt torque. Check torque of drain plug and oil filter bolt. Check torque of all brake system nuts and bolts.

cause: Gears are not correctly and fully engaged. The edges of the shift dogs and shift gears are rounded. Solution: Beginning with the 1997 model year, a modified set of gears has been introduced in production. Service Remedy: Installation of tolerance-optimized gears and shift forks is now possible. Parts: The installation of the optimized parts is to be done in accordance with the listing on the next page, based on the individual gearbox type and nature of complaint . We also recommend installation of the new “clean bearings” where applicable as noted. Clean Bearings: BMW has introduced deep-groove ball bearings which are sealed, therefore the bearings operate in their own lubricant rather than the gearbox lubricant. Clean bearings provide longer life expectancy and on some models provide the opportunity to extend gearbox lubrication intervals without reducing bearing life expectancy. Note: On a gearbox before the introduction of clean bearings, the layshaft roller bearing cannot be replaced with a ball bearing, since the ball bearing’s outer diameter is larger and the layshaft is longer. On the input shaft, we recommend always using the new ball bearing instead of the tapered roller bearing. Caution: New Shimming Procedure!
