SOURCE: noticed the brake light was alwasy on where are

There is a switch on the handlebar brake lever and a pressure switch somewhere along the metal rear brake line. Since they change the location of this pressure switch from time to time and I don't know exactly where it is on your bike, just follow the metal brake line that comes out of the back of your rear brake master cylinder. You'll recognize it when you see it. It will have two or four wires connected to two spade plugs.

If I were a betting man, I'd bet that someone at some time has loosened the master cylinder on the handlebars to adjust something or taken the throttle switch housing loose. The front brake light switch in located inside the throttle switch housing. If the master cylinder and the switch housing are not firmly pushed against each other, the brake lever will not depress the front brake switch when your release the brake. This will cause the brake light to stay on all the time. Loosen the master cylinder clamp bolts and slide the master cylinder and brake lever snuggly against the face of the switch housing. This will probably fix your problem. If not, you'll need to do a little electrical troubleshooting to determine whether the front brake switch or the rear pressure switch is bad. For this, you'll need a Volt Ohm meter and a wiring diagram.
Try the switch first.

What Kind of oil do I use for my 2008 1200 custom sportster

Use a 20W50 weight synthetic or petroleum based oil that is rated for use in diesel engines. You can look on the container to find the API rating. It will have an "S" rating like "SH" or "SJ" and also a "C" rating like "CG" or "CF". The "C" rating is for use in diesel engines and has the high pressure additives in the oil that Harley recommends. As for the brand, there are many different brands on the market. Amsoil, Royal Purple, Redline, and Mobil V-Twin are a few. Any one of these oil or H-D brand oil are very good lubricants. The key to long engine life is clean oil. Make sure your change your oil at least on the recommended service intervals. And don't forget the primary and transmission oil changes.

Good Luck

Rebuiling timing gears in a 2006 sportster 1200 xlc. Need a picture or reference for gear replacement and cam position

The cams are numbered 1 through 4 starting at the rear going towards the front. The new oil pumps do not have to be timed like the '76 and earlier models did. Install #1 cam, install #3 and #4 cams and time them with each other then install the #2 timing it with the pinion gear, the #1 and the #3 cam.

Good Luck
