If you're talking about dieing at an idle, you can increase the idle slightly to keep this from happening. Do not increase it too much, Harley's are not designed for high idle.

I can hear a lot of valve train noise, carried it back at 1000 miles. HD said bike sounded good, but sure they would. 09 evo 1200.


Hi Anonymous, find a friend who also has a fairly late model XL 1200 and swap bikes and go for a ride for an hour or so, then you will know for sure and so will the guy/gal riding your bike. Also you can try running SYN 3 Harley oil it runs cooler than non-syn also run an oil cooler. Engine oil temp should be around 180 to 220. The cooler the engine the quieter the moving parts to a point. Good luck

Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry but I loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Have a nice day.

I have a 2005XL 1200. After riding about 15miles, the bike bogs down after I stop and try to accelerate. At 70mph and up it's ok. At the low end it wants to die. I have to keep it accelerating


Hi Francisco, if you have a carburator the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system (gas cap).
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Vacuum piston malfunction.
4. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
5. Plugged bowl vent.
6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.
9. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
10. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.
Good luck

Recently purchased a sportster 1200 xl low rider 06 plate. Which is great in every way apart from town use, I find that once the engine has got warm I am having to continually blip the throttle to stop it...


Regrettably, it is a "norm" for an H-D Sportster but it's fixable. The engine is jetted very lean in order to meet EPA emission standards. The lean mixture is what causes the spitting back through the carburetor and poor idle qualities of the engine. You can improve the low speed and idling characteristics of your engine by going up one size on the low speed jet and readjusting the idle mixture. If you can do this work yourself, let me know and I'll give you the instructions on how to do it. If not, take your bike to a performance oriented shop and talk to them about it. If they have a dynometer and an exhaust gas analyzer, they can fine tune your bike to where it runs like it should.

Good Luck & Ride Safe

You don't mention any other symptoms so I will assume the electronics, ie speedometer, tach, and such, did't start acting weird? If that is the case check your grounds these old rigid mount sportsters are known for vibrating the grounds loose.

How much oil does my 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom? I was told by tech at Harley dealer (and he sold me 3 qt) that it took all most 3 qts, but when I changed it new filter and all, it...


Maybe it wasn't flushed and there was still some old oil in it.
Do these things have a level indication?
If the level is right, start the bike and run it for a minute or so, watch the oil light. Then stop it, leave it a few mions to let the oil settle in the sump and check it again.
What I mean by flushing out, have a look at how it's done on a different type of bike -
