Question about Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883 Motorcycles
The bolts are hollow
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, try hitting the head of the bolts a couple of times with a hammer, then just give the wrench a good smack with the hammer if it breaks the bolt you gave it your best shot. I have never broken one and i have run across some tuffy's in my past. Good luck

SOURCE: Oil on breather tubes.
Not sure how many miles you have but oil on breather tubes (depending on how much) is normal the problem is when you have excessive blowby and high oil consumption. When was the top end done last... If never, it's due....

The old Ironhead Sportster were notorious for breaking the shifter shaft. It's got a ball on the end of a lever like piece and it's bad about breaking. But, there are other things that could be wrong. You could have a broken shifter pawl spring as well. In this case, it usually shifts all the way one way then won't go the other way. You'll just have to pull the transmission out to find out for sure. To get the transmission out, you must take the engine sprocket, primary chain, and clutch assembly off. Then remove the front final drive chain sprocket. Take the four bolts out of the transmission "trapdoor" and pry it off. The transmission comes out with the door. This a not a real difficult job but I would suggest the purchase of a service manual for the bike. There is a lot of information that you'll need, much too much for me to type in here. Also, the old saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" applies in this case.
