Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
1999 Harley Sportster 1200XLH. My SM manual does not show the routing of the hoses off the carb and I want to make sure I have everything routed properly. Where can I find a routing diagram to make sure everything is proper? Thank you.
Generally the hoses will be moulded in a certain way to ensure they have the correct clearances to prevent chafing or rubbing on other parts. If the hoses refit without having to force them on or stretch them and they don't hang down, I would think they would be in the correct position. My HD book doesn't show hose routing either.

Testimonial: "Thanks Steve. I think I have everything correct, but since I replaced all the lines with the non molded alternatives I just wasn't sure."

Not positive but on two stroke bikes all but one of your hoses are breather and over flow hoses and are smaller than the fuel line that should come from the front left of the carb and go up to the fuel tank. the rest should come from the carb and have holders attached to the carb feed the line closest to the holder and fit it on the breather hole coming from the carb pertruding outward from the carb. there should be three or four lines and one fuel line.

Little tip -The only time the oil cooler will cool is when the bike is moving and when the bike is moving you don't need the oil cooler. This is from a factory harley tech.
