Drive Belt broke on my 2005 1200XLC Sportster


A Sportster is not too difficult to change. You will have to remove the rear wheel, the right shock absorber and the front drive sprocket cover to change the belt. I think you can get the belt on without pulling the front drive sprocket. I always pull it but I don't think it's really necessary. You can work the belt over the edge of the sprocket.

When you put the new belt on, put the right leg of the swingarm through the belt so that when you get the belt over the front drive sprocket, the other end of the belt is INSIDE the swingarm. Take care and do not bend the belt into a radius smaller than about 4". Bending it any smaller than that will break the fibers in the belt and shorten the life. They ain't cheap either. There should be a note in the box about this. If you must take the front drive pulley off, an air wrench will usually do the trick.

The BIG TWINS are the ones that are a real PITA.

Good Luck
Steve

Replace drive belt on 1200 harley


To change the final drive belt on a Sportster is much simpler than doing the same job on a Big Twin Harley.

Support the bike so that you can remove the rear wheel, right rear shock absorber, the belt guard, and the front pulley cover. Take the old belt off and install the new one. Put the bike back together and adjust the belt to have about a 1/2" up and down movement in the middle of the belt with 10 pounds of force applied. Make sure your rear brakes work properly before you ride the bike.

While installing the belt, do not bend the belt in a radius any smaller than 4". Bending the belt too tightly will damage the cords inside the belt and may cause premature failure of the belt.

2005 Harley Davidson XLC. There was a pop from


Check the front wheel. The speedo drive normally resides on the front wheel hub. Take a look at that and see if it looks normal, I'm thinking your cable broke inside the speedo drive which made the "pop" sound. There is a possibility the drive could also have cratered but this will have to be determined when the speedo drive is removed from the front axle and inspected for damage and function.
