  • soonersrock Oct 11, 2008

    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

Replaced rearbrake press switch,now i dont have rear brakes,2004 harley davidson sportster 1200xl

if all you replaced was the switch.. back it out a couple turns and make sure it isn't blocking the port. I've seen aftermarket come with a longer thread that blocks ports. pedal should be stiff if blocked.
if the pedal is free than it must have gotten a gulp of air. sometimes takes forever to get it to moved

How to drain engine crankcase oil 2004 1200 sportster

Run the bike to get it to normal operating temperature. Put an thin oil pan on the ground under the center of the engine. Look for the little rubber hose coming from the bottom of the bike with a plastic plug in it and held in the hose with a clamp. Loosen the clamp and save to reuse if it is the screw type. Then pull the plug out and open up the oil fill cap on right side by the seat.

You can use one or the other. If you use regular oil, Harley 20w50 goes in the oil tank and Formula + goes in the primary. If you use synthetic (Harley Syn 3) the same oil goes in both oil tank and primary.
