I have a 2005 Sportster 883, Always used shop to change oil & xmission fluid. Any problem using a standard 20w50 oil and 80w90 xmission fluid and do the work myself?


Hi Ron, I have no trouble with you doing your own oil changes but why would you want to use someone elses oil that was not designed for your Sportster to save a few pennies? If you needed a blood transfusion would you want it from a family member or some stranger? For more information about your question please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice day.

I have a 2001 sportster 883. The battery keeps getting drained and wont charge while driving. i already put a new battery in it and was wondering if there was a common trend with this.


If you are not charging, I suggest you look at one of two things: (1) is the rectifier not working (changes AC from your alternator into "rectified" DC) or (2) the alternator is not producing power for some reason.

Alternators cannot make power unless you first put power into the device, BTW.

Before you purchase another battery and/or get stranded, please have your motorcycle looked at by a professional at your local HD Repair Shop.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com
