Hi,

Is it running and idling OK?

You should not have a totally clean front plug. It should be tan, like a paper bag.

Do a quick/free check - It is possible that your front cylinder is running too lean due to an air leak. You can diagnose an air leak by running propane or spraying WD-40 around the intake while running. If you hear a change in engine speed, you have a leak. Tighten everything up, ride for a bit and check your plugs again.

If that's not it, the rear cylinder is not completely burning - not enough spark energy. If you have not replaced your plug wires in awhile, it's probably time to do so. Replace the spark plugs of course, and inspect the coil terminals for corrosion.

Good luck!

What would cause insufficient flow to my egr valve? (i just replaced it)

my bark test works.
i remove the EGR valve see 2 ports there. (twin holes)
one is vacuum side, (intake) the other is exh. side.
i plug the vacuum side, and start engine

I have a 1992 sportster 1200 xlh and need to know how the connecting rods are suppose to set in the flywheel. also need to know which side the spline on the flywheel should be


The connecting rods are known as "knife and fork" rods in that one rod sits inside the other at the crankpin. The "knife" rod goes to the front cylinder. The "spline" shaft you're talking about is called the "sprocket shaft" and goes to the left (primary drive) side of the engine. Try this site.

I would go back to scratch. Disassemble the clutch basket and reassemble it making sure you have it set in proper order. Then reassemble every thing. Also double check the clutches you bought are the proper ones for your bike.
