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.how to change drive belt on harley sportster 883 - wd4ity_1.gif

SOURCE: Not just changing oil, but is there gear oil to

Yes, there is oil in primary and transmission of your Sporty. To drain the oil, look for the drain plug on bottom of rear section of the primary area, back near the large round section of the primary. Drain the oil here and replace the plug. Add the oil at the top primary chain inspection port, large plug with a large "screwdriver" slot or two small bolts in it. Add 32-36 ounces of H-D "primary lubricant for Sportsters".

Hi Bobby, the neutral light switch is located behind the behind the front pulley sprocket. To access you need to remove the rear exhaust pipe, the rear master cylinder and sprocket cover.

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