1979 xls sportster. At about 3000 to 3500 bike begins to lose power and back fires. Not sure why. Any suggestions?


It sounds like ignition to me. Most likely coil or stater. I would start with the coil.

I have a 1973 harley davidson sportster xlh 1000 with drag pipes i just bought it, but it ran great it sat for 3 months now it pops and backfires and is have a oily mist from the air cleaner and i dont...


popping and backfiring sounds like a lean fuel mixture, caused by the wonderful gas we are getting these days. try draining fuel system, put in fresh fuel. the oily substance is coming from the crankcase vents located within the air filter cavity, a lot of bikes do that, ck. oil level not over full.

I have a 2006 road king classic and got samson 2 inch drag pipes slip ons with no baffles will it hurt the motor to run them with out the baffles


No it won't hurt anything as long as your pipes are long enough. If they're way too short, you'll burn your exhaust valves up. As long as the pipes reach at least the front of the rear wheel, you should be fine running it straight piped. It'll make her sound good too. You'll be pleased with the sound change

Have 07 xl1200c sportster how can i make exhaust louder have standard pipes on dont want it to loud just more of a deep thud money tight dont want to keep with original pipes for now


Screamin Eagle mufflers work well. I've been running a set on a Dyna Wide Glide for years. They're not as loud as straight pipes. They come with removable baffles, I think. It's been years since I've mess with them but they used to. Also, some pipe manufacturers made "slip on" muffler replacements. They're much better for performance too as they present the engine with a bit of backpressure that the drag pipes do not.

Good luck
Steve

Harley spits and sputters.


Unless an aftermarket device has been installed on your bike, you must take it to a dealer to get the fuel map reworked.

I put drag pipes on,now crank position sensor


There is no adjustment to the valves on your Evo Sportster. The tappets are self adjusting hydraulics unless someone has changed them. Take a look at you pushrod tubes, are they should be one-piece tubes.

Sorry but I cannot explain why your crank sensor keeps giving trouble. I know nothing of the electronics on the newer bikes. But I do know that the last Sportster that used solid tappets was the 1985 model Ironhead. All Sportsters since have hydraulic tappets and require no adjusting.

05 sportster jerking as if it were running out of gas


You need to finish the equation. There are 3 things that work together. intake, exhaust and ignition. The stage one kit has advanced the timing a bit and the pipes has let the gases flow freely.
You are in a pickle. How much money do you want to spend?
The pipes have let you get a little more top end end but now it has a hard time in transition. I personally would go 2 into 1 for the torque. !43 vs. 142 mph aint that much differnece.
You need more fuel and a bit more restricted exhaust.



Do you want to sound good out in the parking lot at idle or be in front on the road?

Stage 1 Low rpm backfire


If you are running straight pipes they might not give you the right back pressure. This can be reolved by either going back to riginal pipes or instaling a bolt into the pipes about 5 inches in to make back pressure. Another thing? Did you have the bike's electronic ignition reset after you messed with it?
