Why wont my 2002 sportster start? Battery starter and pos battery cable fairly new

That little black box (about an 1" square by about 1 1/2" high) that's clicking is (probably) the "starter relay", and they do go out over time.

Luckily, it's only about a $10-15 part.

2002 harley sportster will not start when it is cold it acts like its not getting gas like the choke is not working.

Hi Larry, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below: Good luck

I just want to change the battery on my sportster ,1200, 2002 how do i get the seat off, or do i need to?

yes, you really need to remove the seat. Although I am not familiar with your particular model, most Sportster seats are held on by a single bolt screwed into the rear fender at the very back of the seat. Remove the bolt, lift the rear end of the seat slightly, and pull it to the rear. There is a tang on the front of the seat that slips under the frame. Once out, you should be able to see the battery and the strap that holds the top battery cover down. Loosen the nut and remove the hold down strap and battery top cover. Remove the rubber strap that holds the battery into the tray. Disconnect the negative cable first when removing the battery. When installing the battery connect the negative cable last.

Good Luck

I have changed my sprockets front and back on my 2002 sportster 883, and wondering if i can get around my speedo not being acurate now please?

The only way to do that is if you sprocket combination you changed to is offered as standard equipment on some Sportsters. For instance, if you changed from "domestic" gearing to "international" or "Australian" gearing, you may can purchase a speedometer that is calibrated for that gearing.

Or, you could convert to the older style front wheel drive type speedometer maybe. It depends on what parts are available. I have no idea as to what aftermarket parts are available for Sportsters. Try V-Twin manufacturing's website and see if they have anything.
