Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds like you did not get the float adjustment set correctly. It is very particular and it is critical for proper running etc etc. Carb has to be set on the throat and then tilted between 15 to 20 degrees to set the float level or it will be wrong. Greater than 20 degrees will collapse thew pin return spring, less than 15 will not set float properly on needle. Then setting must be 0.413 to 0.453 inches.

SOURCE: hard start, trouble idleing
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install new stock spark plugs. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. This process should get you back on the road.
