The trigger wire for the tach probably connects to the coil or the ignition box. As long as you can get to the connections on the coil, you shouldn't have to remove the tank. However, removing the tank on a Sporty is not a problem. Drain the gas, disconnect the hose, remove three bolts and lift the tank off.

2010 Sportster acts like its running out of gas after 2nd gear.


it could be there is a screen filter in the tank that might need cleaned its part of the petcock (shut off valve) in order to clean it you need to drain the fuel tank and remove it from the bottom of the tank use caution removing it so you can reuse the gasket and that you don't break it off they stick up into the tank a couple of inches (you might have to remove the tank from the bike to get it out) time to get dirty and have fun

Oil change xl 1200


Warm engine up to operating temp. Remove plug in bottom of oil tank. Be ready the oil comes out fast and is difficult to catch. Allow to drip into catch container while you remove
oil filter and install new one. Reinstall tank drain plug and fill with oil. Start but do not tach up allow oil pressure to come up. Shut it down and check oil again.
Good Luck and Ride Safe O yes do check for leaks

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle


The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

My electric system has gone haywire. The tach


SOME GAS CAPS CAN BE VERY HARD TO REMOVE , IF YOU TRY WITH A PAIR OF LONG PLIERS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE. THE TACH PROBLEM SOUNDS LIKE THE SPEED SENSOR MAY BE BAD
