SOURCE: 2003 rear brake caliper lock up on a harley sportster

Check your pads to make sure they are in the right position and haven't started to wear too thin and move.
Check the operation of the pads is real smooth when you apply pressure on the lever (might need someone else to operate it while you look ).
Witth the rear wheel raised off the ground and the bike not running turn the wheel slowly and check to see if it warped. (I used to do this on my sportster by using a couple of car axle stands under the footpeg brackets and raising the bike up on an old hydraulic car jack - might not be the best way but it worked enough for me to get the rear wheel off to change tyres without spending a fortune-an extra pair of hands is really handy(!) here).
Look down the rear caliper and check that no **** from the road has got stuck in there anywhere.
check your wheel alignment - have you adjusted the belt lately or latered the set-up?
Hope something here helps!

"Backfiring" is a pretty broad term depending on where you live. Some people refer to backfiring as popping from the exhaust while others refer to it as the engine spitting through the carburetor.

I'll assume that you're talking about popping out the exhaust pipe. If it does this after you rev the engine and it backfires on the way back down to idle, this is typical of an exhaust system sucking air. The mixture is extremely rich under these circumstances and will not ignite. But, if your exhaust system is sucking air, it combines with the fuel air mixture already there and bring it to an explosive mixture thus the backfire.

You can check you valves but I've always found that if the valves on an Ironhead are too tight, it's extremely difficult to get it started due to the low compression on that cylinder.

Check you ignition timing and points setting. Also, what kind of condition is your mechanical advance in the distributor in? I'm assuming this is an XLH model and not the magneto equipped XLCH.

What type of carburetor is on the engine? Hopefully not the original Tillotson that it came with. If it's an S&S, the low jet should be a 28 and the main jet a 66 to 70.

If you are talking about the front foot peg. Take the screw that holds the peg to the mount out. Inside the mount you will see an allen that tightens the mount to the shaft you will need to tighten this allen. Then put the peg back on and your done.

Trying to get right side foot peg case off foot peg seems to have a nut behind case not sure how to get off


Yes there is a nut on the backside of the stud that the peg mounts to. The stud is also the shaft for the rear brake pedal. To get to the nut, take the master cylinder loose and the snap ring that holds the rear brake pedal on or the remove the pin from the brake pedal. Now, take the large nut below the peg and brake pedal shaft off and the other two bolts that hold the front sprocket cover on. Remove the cover and you can get to the nut.

Good Luck

How to remove and replace 2007 Harley Sportster forward shifter and foot pegs? I have stock rubber pegs on my Sportster and they are all rubber, do I need to cut them off to replace them with custom pegs?


The stock pegs have a steel core and are removed by unscrewing, they are almost always damaged beyond reuse upon removal, because the tool (ViseGrips) needed for removal has to bite down to the metal core to unscrew them. Or you could do as you are thinking, cut off the rubber to get at the steel peg and put a ViseGrip on it to unscrew it. They can be tight BTW.

The 45° V-Twin engine is impossible to balance perfectly. For this reason, Harley has started building their Sportsters with rubber mounted engines. If you model is one of the newer rubber mounted versions and it vibrates this bad, the only thing that I can suggest to for you to inspect the engine mounts. Don't forget to take a look at any top engine mounts as well.

Good Luck

How do i install foot pegs on a 2005 sportster 1200 custom


Unless they've changed something that I don't know about, simply remove the pegs that are on the bike now and replace them with whatever type of pegs you want.

Now, if your bike is equipped with forward controls and you are wishing to install a set of mid mount foot pegs, you will need to purchase the foot peg mounting pieces. You need to go to a dealership, look at the parts manuals, and order the parts you need from them. Or, you could look around at a swap meet and possibly find the parts you need used. By doing this, you would have both mid mount and forward controls. Just make sure there is no interference with any linkage for the rear brakes or shifting. I have not done this particular job on a Sportster but have done it on a Dyna Wide Glide once. Turned out nice but the control linkage is different on a Sportster.
