SOURCE: battery not staying charged
The sportster does not have an alternator, it has a stator. Are you sure it is the stator? First check the stator and see if it is putting out any voltage, to do this you disconnect it from the regulator on the right front down tube at the bottom. Use a multimeter to read the voltage, I forget what the values are but they should climb with increased RPM. If you find the stator is the problem get a manuel, it is a pretty big job and I can't go thro all the steps here. You do have to remove the primary cover and clutch basket, the stator is attached to for wont of a better word the fly wheel. The suggestion that I can make that is not in the manuel is to attach a pull wire to the stator wire before you remove it to make pulling the new wire easier,

Nothing to fear. The shift forks ride on a long spiral grooved drum which has some inertia. If you stomp the gear, sometimes the inertia will carry the shift fork beyond it's intended destination. The various gears are constant mesh with it's mating gear, but are not coupled to it's shaft. The gear, when selected, carries a fixed 'dog' that couples to a sliding 'dog' which is controlled by the appropriate shift fork and is splined to the shaft the gear is riding on. These 'dogs' are like fingers which stick out on the sides of gears and sliders. The reason you have to rock the bike is because the 'dogs' are fairly coarse and don't instantly fit together except when the bike is in motion.
