Remove the rear wheel and then remove the primary chain, the clutch, the engine compensating sprocket, and the chain adjuster as an assembly and then remove the primary chaincase housing. Support the bike under the rear fork and engine and then remove the pivot shaft and the spacer THEN slip the belt off the transmission sprocket and then install a new drive belt over the transmission sprocket and proceed to reinstall the pivot shaft and spacer after which you can remove the support holding the engine and rear fork and install the primary chaincase housing, the primary chain assembly and the primary chaincase cover and fill the primary chaincase with lubricant up to the bottom of the clutch diaphragm spring.

How to change drive belt on harley sportster 883

Changing the drive belt on a Sporty is a snap compared to a big twin. First you'll have to remove the rear brake master cylinder and pedal or at least take the bolts out and move it out of the way. Remove the front pulley cover. Remove the rear wheel and the shock on the right hand side. You should be able to work the belt off the front pulley and get the new back on.

When you put the new belt on and tension it, make sure you keep the adjuster bolts of either side of the swingarm about the same length. This ensures that the rear wheel is aligned with the swingarm.wd4ity_1.gif

After reinstalling rear wheel assy on a 1988 harley sportster 883, it seems to close on one side

Look at the final drive belt. Sight along the belt as you sight a rifle. Does it look straight? If not, have you got any and all spacers in the correct location?

Go to this site,, for a drawing of the rear wheel and spacers for your bike. Search under OEM parts if this is not the correct picture.

Good luck

Valve adjustment for 2004 HD sportster XL 883

You have the same model & year as mine - which has Hydraulic lifters as standard. My advice is a) leave 'em alone until b) You've bought a Haynes manual for the Sportster series - which tells you everything you need to know about this bike.
