No, your forward controls should not be interferring with the controls to that extent. Something is wrong but without being able to see the setup, I can't help you. Sorry.

Oil leaking from air filter 2006 sportster

Hi Anonymous, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck

Ive got a 06 harley 1200 sportster when it warms up it starts to cough an sputter through the carb dosent do it all the time but on ocassion it runs fine just takes spells that it does it rebuilt the

Hi David, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator or induction module can be caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

I have a 2006 harley sportster custom and have been told my oil pump has gone out and am wondering where the oil pump is located.

Follow the hoses from your oil tank There are 3 ports on the bottom of the oil tank. The feed, vent and return. The feed hose routes oil from the feed port at the lower right front corner to a fitting on the oil pump. The return hose comes from the oil pump back to the return port on the tank. The vent hose vents out the bottom of the frame.

Rebuiling timing gears in a 2006 sportster 1200 xlc. Need a picture or reference for gear replacement and cam position

The cams are numbered 1 through 4 starting at the rear going towards the front. The new oil pumps do not have to be timed like the '76 and earlier models did. Install #1 cam, install #3 and #4 cams and time them with each other then install the #2 timing it with the pinion gear, the #1 and the #3 cam.

Good Luck

What type of oil does a 2004 Harley Davidon XL 1200 Sportster Custom take. Will Royal Purple Max Cycle 10W30 work?

No, but the Royal Purple Max Cycle 20W50 will if they offer that. All Sportsters and Big Twin Harley's use 20W50 oil.

I can't tell you for sure since I don't have a parts book. But, if you told the dealer exactly what model Sporty you have, he should have ordered the correct part. I'd take it back.

My 2006 1200c gets alot of oil in the air filter but im told there was no umbrella valves deigned in this model is this true

Since there is no "center section" to the rocker boxes, there is umbrella valve in there. There is a "breather" in there however. Now, whether or not it will cause excessive oil to get into the air filter, I don't know. I don't work on models as new as this. It's simple enough to put the front rocker box and check. Take a look here.

Good Luck
