Is the a spark when you try to start, is the fuel any good, you need disconnect a fuel line to see if the bike is pump gas to the carburetor.
make sure your battery at least 11.2 volts DC. check this first if you need more help email me and i will get more information for you.

SOURCE: Clutch Adjustment 1200R Sportster 2004

Slide the rubber cover off the adjustment nut on the clutch cable, loosen the lock nut adjust the cable until you have about an 1/8" play in your clutch cable at the lever. To adjust the clutch itself remove the derby cover, then the spring and retainer. Turn the post until snug and then back off a quarter to half turn, reassemble the derby cover.

SOURCE: Adjusting timing on Harley Davidson 1976 sportster

The advance timing should be 35° before Top Dead Center. This is how you find out which mark this is.

Get the rear wheel of the bike off the ground, remove the spark plugs, shift the bike into fourth gear, and remove the timing plug from the left engine case.
Now, take an ordinary PLASTIC DRINKING STRAW and insert it into the front spark plug hole. Do not use anything else or you stand a chance of it breaking and then you'll have to pull the head to get it out. The plastic straw will bend but not break.
Bump the rear wheel in the direction that it turns while riding down the road until the piston pushes the straw all the way up and just barely starts going back down. Look into the timing hole. You should see a timing mark. This is the Top Dead Center mark. Now, bump the rear wheel BACKWARDS until you see another mark. This should be the ADVANCED TIMING MARK. The piston should 7/16" down from top dead center.

On this model Sportster the timing is advanced by a mechanical advance mechanism. These units are notorious for wearing out and not contolling the timing very well. You must remove the breaker plate to inspect this mechanism. Mark the position of the plate before you remove it. If the pins and holes in the flyweights are worn, replace the unit. Replace it with a good needle bearing unit. Replace the points and reset the gap at 0.018 - 0.020".

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!

N my 06 sportster Roadster tried to crank her up motor turned heard a pop then no lights ,it won't even turn over


There's a fuse panel either under the seat or behind the triangular plate on the left side of your bike. If you find a fuse blown or the main circuit breaker tripped, you'll have to figure out what caused it.

Good Luck
