Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

1 Answer

I have a 2006 harley 1200 sportster. I bought this bike brand new and had the first time service a while back. My problem is the bike won't run unless the choke is half open. I had the problem when I took it back for service and what ever they did helped a little but the problem is it's out of warrenty now. I'm finding that I'm not the only one having this problen. Any sugestions? Richard

Out of curiosity, have you done a re-jet ? Those main/pilot jet sizes are what my manual has listed as stock. I think that the pilot jet, in conjunction with idle screw, would cause nearly everything you have described. Try going up one size on both to a 45 pilot and 175 main. Seems that for sportsters, the screw needs to be about 2.5 turns out for almost any stage 1, maybe slightly less or more depending on your particular engine. Not sure of the your needle, but most people I know don't bother changing their needle as the sportster needle is pretty darn good at what it does, particularly for 1200 models.

hope this helps

    To add to John's comment, I am about to try what many others have recommended, in changing the needle to that of a 1988 Sportster 1200s, part# 27094-88.

2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom PN Code number


Hi, Michael PN is not a fault code they usually show up at the end of a diagnostic search for generated error codes that are active or non-active that have been resolved but not cleared. They are part numbers that identify electrical components that are currently installed on the bike. 68920-01 is the turn signal security alarm module. 67436-04 is the speedometer.

2001 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 C cranks but won't start. Doesn't seem to be getting spark to plug


Check your pick-up sensor located inside the timing cover,behind the adjustor plate. If the filament is not intact you will have no spark.
A defective coil, cam position sensor, or stator will also cause a no spark condition.

Good luck, i hope this will FixYa and get your bike back on the road.

We have a 93 harley xlh sportster 1200 that was rebuilt into a 1340 and dont know any thing about it can you help us figure out our first bike? We bought the bike and its our first bike ever. We know...


Are you sure it is a 1340 and not a 1200? Most Sporties that have the displacement bumped up started life as a 883 and were bumped to a 1200. That involved new pistons and cylinders, and related gaskets and tuning, that's about it.
