    Thanks for sharing! Was no good when took over the bike but after spending few $Ks, I feel much safer to ride now. Just went to tony couple of days back to replace gaskets and other stuff which end up another few hundreds. The next thing that worries me is the belt but somehow, think yours is a good idea. Get a spare belt from ebay.

    no problems mate...
    i oso spend quite alot on my 1200C when i got the bike, thanks to the HD Agent...
    Think I can do better mechanical work than them just that all my tool measurement are giving me a big headache...
    got to change ...omg

    Any way, the belt just get a new one on Ebay then change it out & keep the old one as spare...
    If crap happen, juz be struck without a bike for a day most....

    Fully agreed with you. HD agents are the 'best' mechanic! Same happen to me too! Spend some money and nothing done!

    btw, for battery is it advisable to use back harley battery or any other alternatives?

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up mate!!!
    U are right!!!...lol

    Well ori is always the best with regards to electrical stuff...
    now is to see the ohms on the "non stock battery"
    I still doing research on it though...lol

    but heard tat non stock battery will make the stator coil & rectificer lifespan shorter...

    As long as the specs are the same; ie: dimension, ohms etc....
    I be more than glad to use the non stock (ard 150 to 160)as it cost at least $100 cheaper than stock HD battery ($260+)
    just curious, yr head light diameter is hw much...?
    isit 18cm?
    any idea....?

    Cheers!!!

    Well shops that sell Harleys other than agent....

    Sunhog
    Sunbrust
    Sumsoon

    Try online it will be better...
    Fianancing can try Hitachi Capital or Bike Production
    Best rates Hitachi Capital...

    I have no qualms on 883 or 1200....
    883 can bore to a 1200 (similar in performance; of course a 1200 win hand down)
    pay a 883 insurance & roadtax...
    so more worth...

    Depends mate.....

    I on a 96 1200C
    so far ook lah...
    did many customising of my own...lol
    No regrets....

    Do u go touring often?
    Do U like to drag around with yr ride?
    Any previous cl2 riding experience?

    If answer is yes to all, pls get a 1200
    If answer is no to qns2 or 3, pls get a 883 as a stepping stone...

    Well if u are like me, confirm won't upgrade to a big twin, then get a 1200...

    Sportster are good customising base for any projects...

    Feel free to contact me on bike related stuff!!!

    We are all bikers...

    i'm new too HD but find it fairly easy to maintain...
    std wear & tear parts, just like the jap... although the life span of parts seems shorter...

    the real killer is actually the customize parts... those will cost u a bomb...
    and worst of all, it never ends...

    SORRY FOR DOUBLE POST...

    I'm more than willing to do a trade with any 96 onwards Sporty for the
    Chrome engine casings & Belt guard.

    I'm a matt & lazy guy....

    Anyone willing to trade with me?
    Stock matt grey or matt black (strongly pref though ...lol)

    Value of chrome engine casing only from HD agent is valued at $2.5k (gt a shock...lol)
    All my chrome are still good less the left side engine casing gt a small area which is tranish.... (above the big round Harley Davidson logo)

    Simple do a trade...

    Potential "buyer" pay the labours charges of est $80 to $120 per bike so total is $160 to $240 for both bikes

    Potential "buyer" buy the gaskets needed for the change $50 per bike from HD agent so total is $100 for both bikes

    Potential "buyer" will need to change his own oil & engine casing lubricantion
    est $45.30 (HD Mineral Oil) + $20 (HD Engine casing Lub)

    I will provide my own oils for my own ride to cut his cost. Labour to change oil, potential buyer will pay est $25 to $35

    It is quite a good deal I think unless someone beg to differ (total amount up to $325.30 to $405.30)

    Potential "Buyer" can buy from me....
    Chrome Rear Pulley Cover (like new) $50
    Chrome Meter Holder 91 to 03 Sporty (like new) $50

    Potential "Buyer" has to trade with me the Chrome battery cover for a stock black at just $25

    If potential "buyer" buy & trade all....
    total amount He or She need to fork out for both bikes will be from $450.30 to $530.30

    Anyone interested do call, sms or pm me...
    Steven @ 96284016
    We can further discuss again...

    Cheers!!!

    feel free go to the HD thread in SBF to view pics.... (pg 132)

    Just a quick question to harley owners, do your front brake reservoir's rubber seal constantly wet with hydraulic fluid?

    Coz mine seems to be leaking and when i sent back to HD, they cant find any fault and said normal.

    It cant be normal. That's a very irresponsible way of telling you!

    Hi mate,

    Thanks for the support ...
    Do feel free to get more bandanas from me....

    Till now not yet lube the belt was advised by a senior as stated to lube the belt as this will prolong the belt life....
    Sound logical to me but I will need to do more research on that mate....

    Hi all, I might be getting a HD soon. Have a few queries on my own. Firstly, is HD a bike suitable for the road conditions in Sg? Looking to get a sportster. And besides that, is there any shop that sells 2nd hand HDs that I can trade in my current bike for?

    singapore has one the best maintained road conditions in the world, almost no potholes and unpainted humps.
    for that reason, i only ride my hd around sg cause i only have 6cm clearance from the ground.
    out of sg, i have other bikes to serve that need

    Hmm, besides that point, how bout traffic? Is it comfortable to move around with local traffic conditions? I've read certain bike mags and the reviews are that HDs are difficult to ride unless at a minimal speed.

    One thing I've learnt over the years that whilst it's good to do some homework some of the time, you can't always believe what you read and more importantly, it will never be as good as finding out for yourself... for the simple reason that everyone's opinions differ. The best way to find out really, is to get on your bike and ride. I guess this applies to a lot of different aspects of life.

    Thank goodness you don't have to buy a H-D to find out. Just head down to the H-D dealership and sign up for a test ride on one of their demo bikes. Everything takes getting used to if you're doing it for the first time but a wise man once said that a journey of a million miles starts with but a single step... (or a flick of the Ignition button).

    Good luck.

    from your first post, you mentioned you are looking at sportster, think of it as a phantom but with a 1200cc engine...i ride a sportster too and it as nimble as a it can get.
    anyway it in the mind, i ridden goldwing, st11 and now, soon a gs12, now these are hard to squeeze in singapore traffic but i am not complaining, still able to manage, traffic here is not like in bangkok or kl city

    Simple, check the charging if U have voltmeter install....
    Stator coil brunt usually reflect undercharging or if Your bike take a darn long time to crank start it could be the stator coil or battery
    both ain't cheap....
    Just change my batt cost me close to $300 for pre 04
    04 onwards cheaper $260++

    Hi Steven, my name is Elvin. May I ask where did you buy the HD engine oil from? Is it from the Harley dealer or from eBay? I am contemplating if I should purchase the Harley service package at $988 from Harley dealer or DIY because my Fatbob is due for it's 32k km service which is a major service with more than 20 core components to be checked, serviced and replaced if necessary. I used to DIY my old bike on engine oil, oil filter but the Harley service manual maintenance schedule on 32k km service is so much more elaborate.

    I had one service done by a motor shop where I sold my old bike to and it cost about $140 for oil change, K&N oil filter change, spark plugs change, K&N air filter cleaning, brake fluid check, tire air pressure check and labor as it was then on a 24k km service maintenance.

    So far, I have done a few DIY to my Fatbob from ordering sissy bar, fender brackets and HD backrest pad from eBay with self installation. My latest DIY task was installing a self spray painted Hardstreet saddle bags ordered from on-line and it was so satisfying doing it DIY.

    But aside from accessories installation, I only managed to buy a Bridgestone front white wall tire and a pair of after-market rear brake pads all at $150 from our local spare parts supplier Ah Boy at Kelantan lane and got a motor shop to install both at $30. I consider so far very fortunate to have spent lesser than expected on this parts which I believe would have cost 2 to 3 folds more if done at Harley workshop.

    The reason why I am still considering Harley workshop to service my Fatbob is because I am hoping that they are as meticulous as what is expected as described on the service manual for every component service on the bike but then again I have no way to verify that unless they allow you to be present at the workshop which I understand otherwise.

    So, should I or shouldn't I? I would like to hear your opinion since I see you as quite a DIY rider yourself.

    even though I had a service package with the dealer which was thrown in when I bot the bike from them. I have my doubts bat their service level, coz I heard so much horror story or bad review on them. I am having some second thots of sending my bike in for service even though it's free.

    my suggestion is that since u can do most things dig,why not do those things u can do yourself and those compacted stuff leave it to Tony or twin or samsoon or anyone u familiar with rather than sent it to dealer and get kutok there.
    This may take more time and effort and possibily higher cost in the end but I think u get more peace of mind and u know than whatever need to be done is done rather than second guessing whether the mech go thru motion only or not.

    All HD engine have it's own signature, really depends what you want...HD has no technology or maybe outdated technology...if u looking for hi-tech, then HD is not for you. If you looking for heritage, this is one lifestyle bike that you will always be look upon when you are on the road...doesn't matter evo/tc or whatever...as long it's a harley, there is always someone out there admiring the bike because of it's history....
