Some people think carb is more reliable because if your bike breaks down in the middle of nowhere, if you have some skills, still can troubleshoot. For EFI, it is relatively trouble-free but if the bike breaks down in the middle of no where, then gone case, because you won't be able to mess with the ecu to troubleshoot on your own. Just go for EFI lah. Technology so advance these days, unless you really into heavy engine mods, if not EFI should run fine with proper scheduled maintenance. :thumb:

 

Ok, thanks for your input. But from those links, I read that carb gives a lot more trouble, and to be honest I'm not exactly mechanically savvy. Is this true for you guys too?

Hi brothers and sisters. Seems like a new thread have emerged for Sportsters!

 

Anyway I posted the below in the main Harley thread. See if I can get some help from here as well:

 

Had a stupid accident when trying to push start my Iron. Too much throttle and clutch :slapforehead: Well maybe it's time to do a little mod. It has remained totally stock for almost 3 years ;)

 

Well here's the damage:

 

:deal:

1. The matte black peanut tank on my 2010 Iron got dented on the right by the handlebar :(

2. Handlebar became crooked but still ride-able. Just that the left is higher than the right :lol:

3. Front signal light lens broken, but bulb still blinking like a charm :p

4. Clutch and brake levers a little bent but still functional.

5. Mirrors scratched.

6. Rubber grips a little torn up (small issue).

 

How much (estimated) do I have to fork out to a minimal repair?

 

Not sure where to go to get a quick fix before my inspection in early October. Thinking of Sun Burst but Ah Yee is always short-handed. Not sure whether I can pass inspection with crooked handlebar and signal light with no lens.

 

I'm also worried about the matte black finish on the tank. Is there a place that can do a good job that can match the stock paint?

 

Thanks in advance. Have a great day!

Hi Boner, is your handlebar black, power coated? If yes, and if you wanna sell it, I might buy them from you. Mine is crooked.

Hi, thinking of getting a fuel gauge for my xr1200 (have had a few close encounters, almost running our of petrol). Anyone knows if it's cheaper to order online or go to HD Singapore for the fuel gauge?

 

Also any fuel management tips would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Anyone did a tank lift ? 1.5 or 2 inch is suitable for 883L with the 4.3 gallon of tank ?

I thinking of changing to drag bar also.

 

had my 2000 883 XLH wif a tank lift of abt 1.5inch. No prob wif e bars clearing e tank. As long as e riser pullback is not to much, it will clear.

Sweet ! is that your bike ?

I am thinking to install the Kuryakyn Hypercharger Air Cleaner however now days Joker Air Cleaner are more popular.

Is there a performance different item of the different air clearner ?

 

I am thinking of changing a straight handlebar but not sure if it is comfortable.

Thanks :)

Yes Dave,that was my bike in 2008,now it's somebody else's. Sorry for e small pic,didn't know it would turn out that a small.if u see properly,there r 2 holes inne bracket that I did e tank lift.1 hole is for 1 1/2 inch lift,e other is for 2inch.

Haha tell u truth,hypercharger juz for show only lah.i got it coz it was e cheapest.

Performance wise btw e aftermarket air filters should be about e same.most uses K&N high flow air filters.unless u wanna go velocity stack.haha

Kit looks good! Guessing they need to drill the tank to stick the sensor in?
