Question about 2001 Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883
I cannot remove the right footpeg post from the side engine cover even though I have removed the cotter pin. It looks like the post should pull right out of the side cover now but won't. I don't see any nut on the back side of this footpeg post. Can anyone help me with this.
Hi Bkocher, this is a moderately easy fix but you are going to need a service manual for torque specifications and clarification please visit website below for $6.50 download.
1. Remove exhaust system.
2. Remove the screw and clip to free the brake line from the sproket cover.
3. Remove the two socket head screws and lock washers to free the rear brake master cylinder from the sproket cover.
4. Loosen the locknut and turn the brake push rod at the flats untill it is free of the rod end.
5. Remove the three sproket cover screws and washers. As a single assembly, remove the sprocket cover, footrest mount, rear brake pedal, and master cylinder stiffner.
6. Remove cotter pin and nut from footrest mount. Use blue Lock Tite on threads and torque footrest mounting nut to 40 ft lbs. replace cotter pin and assemble in reverse order. Good luck and have nice day.

Harley has made a few changes but basically the removal of the battery is pretty much the same as it has been for a long time.
Remove the seat first, one bolt at the rear, lift and pull to the rear. Next, there's a strap that holds the battery top cover on. Take the strap loose and remove the top and side covers. Now, on some later models, there is another strap that holds the battery in. Remove it as well. Disconnect the cables from the terminals. The negative should be disconnected first. Sometimes it's not the easiest to get to but with the proper tools it can be done. Remove the positive cable last when taking the battery out. When reinstalling the battery, always connect the postive first, negative last. Safety first. Good Luck.

Remove the carb soak in carb cleaner, **** out small bleed holes with a wire from a wire brush etc. One of the passageways is still clogged, or the float is sticking.

The difference between the 883 and the hugger were very small. the hugger came stock with buck horn handlebars and a shorter suspension. the differences are still noticeable today between a standard 883 and and 883 low.

I can help you with your schematic request. However, this forum will only allow me to send files up to 150kb, too small for a schematic without losing the clarity off it. If you will contact me directly at email@example.com , I will e-mail the schematic to you as a scanned jpeg file at no charge. Please remind me of what you need in your e-mail. I handle many request in this manner and I cannot remember who wants what.
