SOURCE: 77 harley sportster is spitting oil out of the cam cover breather

because it is breathing too heavy.
The reason into fixing that is to run a hose from the breather to a tin with a lid and run another hose from the tin the the air filter.

1996 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom no electrical power


Hi, Anonymous the positive battery cable goes to the starter from the starter post a black wire goes to the copper stud on a 50 amp circuit breaker from the silver post of the circuit breaker a red wire goes to the ignition switch, what you need is a wiring diagram that is in the back of your service manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

My 1998 Harley sportster won't start but the speedometer get's power


Different fuse. Check the fuse block located just behind your battery. Just pull the cover off and slide out the main fuse block, the very bottom one is blown if the starter wont turn over.

2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold


Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below and good luck.
