Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883
Being on 03, it does not have the feature on 04-up models of on-board
diagnostics readable from the speedo... You are seriously best off
to take it to an HD dealer an have them plug it into Digital Technician
(HD's proprietary computer diagnostic system), they can tell you with 15
minutes what is wrong.
Newer Delphi Injected bikes must use a "spark tester adapter" installed between the plug and wire to check for spark... the plugs must be installed, if the bike has no compression from the plugs being out, it will not fire, giving a false no-spark reading.
This is not easy for the average person to diagnose. On a carbed bike, the three most common things would be the crank position sensor, coil/harness connector and the ignition module. On injected, the crank sensor, coil/harness connector or ECM. As I said, these are the most common, but the problem could be anywhere in the ignition/injection system.
Honestly, you will be better off letting a dealer diagnose and repair than to just start thowing on parts without knowing where to start. Tell us news.
