The book says 3.3 gal. with a .08 gal reserve, the custom holds 4.5 gals. I don't know if they want you to add the 3.3 to the .08 and get the total or the .08 comes out of the 3.3??? I guess you won't know till you fill it up. Hope this helps.

The vent between the tanks is located under the tank panel. The fuel vent is in the right side gas cap. Did you check to make sure fuel was flowing out of the right tank while you had the crossover hose off?

There is a round plate on the right side of your engine. This is the timer cavity. It has the sensor inside it and it provides the pulses for your tachometer as well.

WHATS THE AVERAGE MILEAGE ON GAS


Fuel mileage depends a lot on the way you ride. Believe it or not, the Sportster and the Big Twins get just about the same mileage. I get 42-45 mpg. on my '94 FXDWG.

make sure you fuel tank float isn't becoming saturated with gasoline. If the gauge reads full when it is indeed full, you probably don't have a short in the wire that goes to your fuel float sending unit. If that wire is bare and shorts out it will say you tank is empty since it works on resistance open or unplugged the gauge would read full, closed is or going to ground the gauge will read empty. I would think the float might be bad or the float arm got stuck down when you turned a sharp corner. I had one of these cars but I don't remember exactly where the fuel level sending unit is located and if you need to remove the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit. I hope this helps you

I have gas dripping from my air cleaner. 2002 883R has been sitting for 1.5 years.


If your bike has been sitting for that long with gasoline in the fuel tank and carb, you can be sure that you need to have the carb disassembled, cleaned, and put back together. Pay particular attention to the accelerator pump diaghragm.

I'd also take the tank off and empty any old gas that was left in there as well. Inspect it for rust on the inside. If everything looks pretty decent, reinstall the tank and fill with fuel. Remove the petcock and clean the strainer on the inside of the tank.
