SOURCE: how do i set idle on 1990 1200 sporster

On the side of the carb is an idle adjustment screw. Turn clockwise to turn up idle and counter-clockwise to lower the idle.

SOURCE: I HAVE A HARLEY SPORSTER

Sounds like the shifter pawl is broken. This is common in Sportsters. You'll have to pull your primary drive to repair it.

Disconnect your battery, drain the primary, loosen the primary chain adjuster and remove the outer primary cover. Take the engine sprocket nut loose. Remove the snap ring in the clutch assemble and remove the throwout bearing. Remove the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on. This nut has LEFT HANDED threads. Lift the engine sprocket, primary chain, and the clutch assembly out of the primary case.

Now, you can get to the shifting mechanism and determine what the problem is.

Good luck
Steve

Getting this, to not be so jerky, may be as easy as adjusting the clutch. open up the derby cover and ..

1)Collapse the adjuster on the cable sleeve all the way.

2)Pull the lever against the bar and hold it there with slight force.

3)Turn the pushrod adjuster bolt in while holding the lever against the bar lightly until it starts to force the lever away for some distance. (Do this more than once to get the feel). While keeping light pressure on the lever back the adjuster bolt out just until the lever touches the bar again and then another little bit, about 1/2 turn , then lock it.

4)Adjust the cable freeplay at the lever for 1/16" free play.

You should be good to go .

Always adjust the clutch on a cold bike for best results.

**It's better to adjust the clutch so that it starts to grab at least an inch or more from the bar for complete disc separation, which translates into better/quieter shifting.Using this method, you can "feel" where the lever is going to grab with a little practice.

Buy yourself a cheap 11/16 deep well socket and weld a nut on top of it. This makes the perfect tool for the adjuster lock nut. You can then use an Allen wrench inside the socket and a wrench on the nut you have just welded on. Makes it a lot simpler.

You can also see "clutch adjustment by the book" in this same forum found-- HERE.. Hope this helps Fix Ya up..

Sounds like you have a bad hydraulic lifter. It's acting like a solid lifter with too much clearance until it pumps up with oil.

Hi Aubrey,
I use Dextron II in my FLHR Road King and its never missed a beat, however your local spares stockist should stock aftermarket oil NOT H.D. (Mortgage price) which does the same.
