Making More Horsepower

  1. Full throttle only, on hot days, at low rpm. Carburetor is a bit lean in needle seat or main jet. Not too serious. We all have this problem sometimes.
  2. Full throttle only, on hot days, at mid or high rpm. Carburetor is a bit lean in needle seat or main jet. This is more serious. Get on this problem soon.
  3. Happens even while cruising at a constant speed. Carburetion is way too lean, or compression ratio is too high, or the gas you just bought is Tijuana special, cut with #2 diesel. Pull off the road, call for a trailer. This is big time serious.
Black smoke on full throttle acceleration.
Main jet is too rich.
Grey smoke on full throttle acceleration.
Bad valve guide seals, or bad rings. The engine was mis-assembled.
Grey smoke when you start the engine, particularly when cold.
Bad valve guide seals. The engine was mis-assembled.
Ticking sound which goes faster and slower as the engine does.
  1. Bad spark plug connection to ignition coil (pray this is it).
  2. Stuck lifter.
  3. Improper valve to valve clearance, or improper valve to piston clearance.
Engine misses at idle or full throttle acceleration.
Bad connection from ignition coils to spark plugs.
Truly crummy gas mileage, as in less than 40 when cruising, or less than 35 around town.
  1. Too much cam duration. You're blowing gas out your exhaust pipes.
  2. Carburetor is way too rich, especially in the midrange.
  3. Accelerator pump on carburetor is adjusted too aggressively.

SOURCE: remove the battery from a hugger 883 2003

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.

SOURCE: how do i take off my 2001 harley sportster 883

There is a strap that runs over the top of the battery box, the nut on the strap is either 7/16" or 1/2" six-point, just loosen the nut until it comes off the end of the threaded portion and then lift it out of the hole, the other end is a "J" clip, you'll need to push down to get it to disengage from the battery tray. After removing the strap, you can remove the battery box sides and top panel, then you can remove the cables and remove the battery. Be sure to keep the positive post away from the frame, or any bare metal when shifting the battery around to remove the cables. Be sure to save the nut and washer for reassembly. You may also want to consider adding a battery charger pigtail when reinstalling the battery. It'll allow you to use a Battery Tender/Float Charger to maintain voltage.

SOURCE: Wiring diagram for 1988

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 wd4ity@bellsouth.net , 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.

Ride Safe
