If you want the original replacement from Harley Davidson it's part #65958-04 Besides the Harley replacement you can use a Yausa battery YTX14LBS Anything sized 14LBS should work but notice the dimensions of the battery before ordering. Dimensions should be no more than 6" long x 3 1/2" wide x 5 3/4" tall in order to fit. Make sure you look at 14 L-BS and NOT 14 BS as the 14BS will not fit your bike.

1997 sportster 883....intermittent gears not engaging

There could be several problems here. One problem could be the way you're shifting the gears. I've been riding for over 40 years and I still miss a gear every now and then due to sloppy shifiting.

If you don't think this might be the problem, you may want to check your clutch adjustment to make sure the clutch is disengaging. The easy way to tell this is to put the transmission in low gear, the start the bike with the lever held in. Does the bike lurch forward or have a strong tendency to "pull" the bike with the clutch completely pulled? If so, adjust the clutch mechanism.

Next, your shifter pawl may be getting ready to give up the ghost. These year model Sporty's are notorious for shifter pawl carrier failure. They are not difficult to replace for someone with a good basic mechanical ability.

Leaking stroker boxes on 2001 883 hugger

I think you are referring to "rocker boxes" on your Sporty. Replace the rubber gaskets between the lower plate and the upper plate. If the lower plate is leaking, you will have to remove the lower plate with the rocker arms and the push rods.
