    i have an 05 1200xlc, recently it seems the bike starts up great, sounds good and has good throttle response until it gets warmed up,or hot whatever. at this point a slight roll of the throttle it will backfire,pop through the carb, sometimes smoke comes thru the air filter. now if i hold throttle at like half way open sometimes it will get thru that. and as long as i let the cluch out slowly,with throttle still 1/2 open i'll be down the road, until i have to start out again. again if i let sit awhile it will start and it's the same thing. what's up

Dry bearing noise

I just had a mystery sqeak that took two different shops to find. Same symptoms, but mine turned out to be a bent piece of the part that indexes the brake pad on my front end. it was dragging on the rotor. The wrenchers at our local HD shop had no luck after 13 days, but the extreme sport jockies found it inside thirty minutes. Might not be your problem at all, but it could be.

My harley idles at 600rpm instead of 1000rpm and it has a flat spot under acceleration.I bought some bad gas awhile ago but ran a few tanks through it since.What's the problem?

Check and clean the air filter first since it's going to be the easiest to get to. Then, if the bad gas had sediments in it, you may need to clean the fuel filter and the carb. It could also be that your carb is just seating and needs adjustment. Try adjusting the idle, if you have any fluctuation or it has a high idle from time to time, then set the idle back, and pull the carb and clean it, floats, jets, etc... This is, if it's a carburated model, if injected, then you will need to run an injection system cleaner through it and have the injection system calibrated.

Starting my bike

first off bro the 883 does not become a 1200 by boring the cylinder. there is absolutely no difference in the size of the cylinder of a stock 883 or 1200. to make the displacement bigger by 317 cc's the head dome is made larger. you can make any 883 a 1200 by carving out the inside of the head to increase the volume. to make this increase in displacement by boring the cylinder would require making the inside of the cylinders bigger than the outside which obviously can't be done. your starter is probably getting hot due to poor electrical connection. most likely in the ground pathway. if you dont have good continuity the amps go way high and the starter gets hot. you can have all the voltage in the world but if you can't carry the amps then the thing will click and and overheat. check your cables and make sure no corrosion also if you painted your bike then the paint on the frame needs to be scuffed off where the ground strap connects
