It has a two way bulb. Try replacing the bulb first. If this doesnt fix it, you may have a corroded wire inside the light bezel. I had a similar problem on a Sporty and had to take the light apart and clean the connections with a small wire brush. But its usually just the bulb.

SOURCE: harley davidson sportster iron 2009 how many miles 833 cc

Like they say, mileage may vary depending on conditions and how you choose to drive. But ..if you were trying to see how far you could go on a gallon..you might be surprised to find out that you could probably get close to 55 miles a gallon. With my 1987 1100CC Sportster, I got 55 MPG. Then I put on Screaming Eagle Carb and pipes and the MPG dropped to 45MPG. Typically you can beat the MPG numbers that the Manufacturer gives you if you go easy on the throttle and don't exceed the speed limit, and drive smoothly. Good luck!

The trans lube is the same as the primary lube. As long as the primary fluid is touching the bottom of the clutch basket with the bike sitting upright, you are good. You will have to remove the clutch (derby) cover on the primary cover to check the oil level.

What wire do I hook my tach up to on my 2009 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200XLC


Sounds like you are capable of working on your own machine. Get the Harley Service Manual for your machine. Best $30 investment you can make. Else, with all engines I've worked on, if you connect your instrument to the "wrong" coil terminal the worst that happens is you get no RPM reading; go to the other terminal.

Hi Rich, 1992 and later touring models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, everything else will be behind the left side panel. Good luck.

The tachometer on my 2001 Sportster 1200 suddenly stopped working - is there a sensor that went bad or could it simply be the tachometer itself ? How can I determine the problem ?


Check the wires going to your coil. There may be a pink wire going to one side of the coil. If that wire is loose, your tach may not work. Also check the power wire, usually orange.

Good Luck
Steve

Hi Kmccarty, 4 out of 5 Harley Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side contact your local dealers parts department for confirmation. Good luck
