Had this same problem with my wife's 2004 XL1200C. Took it to the dealer and they discovered the batt cable was just a little loose. They tightened it and we've had no problems with that since...that was 2 yrs ago.

The brake lights get their power from the "lights" fuse.

Find the rear brake master cylinder. There's a metal line that comes out of the cylinder and goes towards the rear wheel. Follow this line and you'll come to a tee fitting with a pressure switch screwed into it. Check to make sure the wires are firmly attached to the switch. Use a test light and check for voltage to to the orange/white wire with the ignition switch in the ON position. If no voltage, you'll have to trace the wire back to it's source.

If you have voltage there, jumper across the switch with all the wires attached and see if the brake light shines. If not, you've got a problem with the wiring going back to the brake light

Good Luck

SOURCE: WILL A STOCK EXHAUST FROM A 2006 SPORTSTER FIT MY

The critical bits are the engine clamp positions for the angles. If they are the same and I believe as the engine is the same they are, it should fit nicely. The fixings under the silencer are on a slide and very tollerant of position.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: FILL UP REAR MASTER CYLINDER WITH BRAKE FLUID

If you don't have a leak somewhere, you have air in the system. When "pump up" the brakes, you use the brake fluid to compress the air in the system and the pedal feels good for a while. When the compressed air finally forces the brake fluid back into the master cylinder reservoir, the air is no longer compressed and the pedal feels soft. You need to bleed the brakes. Follow these instruction in exactly this manner. First, check the master cylinder reservoir to make sure it's full. Put the cover back on the reservoir so the brake fluid does not splash out. Depress and hold the rear brake pedal. Open the brake bleeder valve on the rear brake caliper and allow the air and fluid to flow out. Close the bleeder valve. Release the rear brake pedal and check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservior. Repeat as many times as necessary until the brake pedal is firm. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry during this process. By putting a short piece of clear plastic tubing on the brake bleeder valve you can direct the expelled fluid into a catch container and reduce the mess. Do not allow brake fluid to get on the painted surfaces of the bike and use only the type of brake fluid that is specified on top of the master cylinder reservoir or in the owner's manual. On your bike that would be DOT 5. Do not mix with any other type of fluid.

How to remove front belt cover on 06 1200c sportster


If switch requires replacement, the rear muffler and rear
exhaust pipe must be removed to remove the transmission
sprocket cover. The drive belt and transmission sprocket must
also be removed; there is not enough clearance to allow the
removal of the switch without first removing the transmission
sprocket.

Rear belt driver instalation


To remove and install a rear belt on your Sportster, first take the right foot peg and the brake lever off the bike. Disconnect the rear brake master cylinder and remove it. Take the front belt pulley cover off the engine. Raise the rear of the bike and support it in a safe manner. Remove the rear wheel. Remove the right rear shock absorber. Work the belt off the front pulley and over the right leg of the swingarm. Reassemble in the reverse order and adjust the tension on the new belt. Reinstall the rear brake master cylinder and bleed the brake.

The spark plug is only firing on the rear cylinder, I have replaced both plugs, both plug wires, and coil. all parts came from HD dealership and all parts are OEM replacement parts and still only fires on...


Swap the spark plug wires and see it the moves from the front cylinder to the rear cylinder. Your Sportster should have what is known as a "dual fire" ignition system. This means that both spark plugs fire every time the piston comes to top dead center whether the cylinder is on the compression stroke or the exhaust stroke. This causes what is known as a "wasted spark", the spark plug fires on the exhaust stroke. I don't have any experience with bikes made after year model 2000. Most of these bikes are equipped with electronic engine controls that I don't care to learn about. I work on bikes made in 1999 or earlier. I feel pretty confident that Harley still uses the "dual fire" ignition but I'm not sure if they have any other sensors on the bike that would cause the problem you have. Try what I suggested and it may give you a clue as to the problem. Other than that, I have no other suggestions. Sorry I couldn't do more.

Good luck

Its hard to start and when running its poping in the front cylinder


The Ironhead Sportsters have solid lifter in them and they must be adjusted correctly. To adjust the valves, remove the spark plugs and get the rear wheel off the ground. Shift the transmission into fourth gear and use the rear wheel to turn the engine over. Remove the push rod cover clips and collapse the push rod tubes.

Now, bring the front piston to top dead center on the compressin stroke. Use a common drinking straw inserted into the spark plug hole to tell where the piston is in the cylinder. Do not use anything else as if you use something that will break, it may do so and the then you'll have to pull the head to get it out of the cylinder. If you are on the compression stroke, the two tappets will be down. If one is up, you are not on the compression stroke.

Loosen the lock nut and adjust the adjuster upwards to make the tappet taller. Adjust it upwards just enough to make the pushrod tight to where you cannot turn it. Now, lower the adjuster until you can just spin the pushrod between your two fingers easily, Lock the lock nut and move to the next tappet on the front cylinder.

Now, do the same thing on the rear cylinder. It is better to have the pushrods just a bit loose rather than too tight. If the pushrod is tight, it will hold the valve open and make the bike hard to start. If you do get it started, it may pop on one or the other cylinder until the engine warms up and the cylinders expand. Make sure you have a good set of plugs in the engine as well.

When finished, shift the transmission back to neutral and lower the bike. Install the spark plugs.

Good Luck

The brake light stays and will not operate with front or rear lever


I'm assuming that you are saying that the brake light is staying on and neither the front nor rear brake lever makes any difference.

Check the postition of the front master cylinder and the throttle control switch housing. They must be positioned so that they are snug against each other. If there is too much distance between the switch housing and the master cylinder, the little brake light switch will be constantly in the outward postion turning on the brake light. Depressing either lever will have no effect.

If that's not the problem, go to the rear brake lever and check the adjustment of the rear brake lever. It must have some freeplay so that the rear master cylinder returns all the way when you let off the brake. If not, the rear brake will get tighter and tighter as you ride and use the brake.

How to adjust rear brake/2005 harley 883xl sportster


There is a pedal height adjustment on the right side of the bike. If your brakes are dragging or not applying properly, you have a caliper problem, blocked line, bad master cylinder or mis-adjusted master cylinder plunger.It does have the correct DOT 5 fluid at the recommended level, right?
