Hi everyone, got myself a forty eight few weeks ago, curious about the cleaning and polishing regime esp in sg condition. Any tips from the pros .. dos and don't.

kepbin you fixed the intiminator and progressive drop in springs on your bike already?

 

Haha yes I put e intiminator n progressive springs in Liao n been riding wif them for about 2mths now.e frontend is stiffer than stock,but not like ur -2inch springs. now Doing corners the bike won't bounce Liao n goes in well. Over potholes n humps,can feel e bike goes down as a whole,nOt like last time e front dips in. I feel e intiminator will work better wif stock springs,as recommended by ricor.

 

My rear shocks I feel have to stiffen up a notch.maybe I do soon.

 

But wif e frontend stiff,my screws on e frontend r coming loose more often.haha

your progressive springs is it the drop-in lowering kit? i also find the front end too stiff.. and a bit too low for my liking. was wondering if the intiminator will increase the height. Anyway, I will most likely just live with it for the time being. Looking at true track now. reviews from hdforums not bad. you have any experience with it?

My springs r same as urs.but I use stock length.the PVC spacers i use for e springs r abt an inch shorter than stock,putting in e intiminator compensate another maybe half inch or so.so rite now my front end is juz maybe less than half a inch shorter fr stock.

 

I can't put truetrack as e location to fix it on is taken up by my oil cooler liao.

Icic... haha... think i need to put move pvc to extend the front. Can't wait to go back and do up the bike. Anyway, for my 1 year old battery that is dead, do you think there is any chance that it will work again after i recharge it?

greetings HD bros,

 

I intend to swap out my 2012 softail's exhausts for a set of full aftermarket ones. however, I realized the back pipe is equipped with an exhaust flap and its servo motor. simply unplugging the servo could throw a code. was wondering how you guys with aftermarket full systems go around this.

 

do you:

(1) connect a resistor in place of the servo motor's plug to trick the electronics; or

(2) have the 'active exhaust flap' disabled at HDS.

 

thanks in advance!

I personally feel that it is underpowered. 1200cc would be a nicer ride. Of course there would be ppl who find 883 more than enough for spore road. That's just my personal opinion. If you are used to class 2 jap street/sports bike, I don't think you would like 883... :)

 

anyone riding a 883 sportster know how it rides ? is it underpowered at 42 HP ?

883 can upgrade to 1200 ? how to ? engine swap ?

 

now im riding a VFR 800 , i feel that it has no torque ....and not really suited to my kind of riding....42HP is like a super 4 right ? but how about the torque ?need to keep downshifting ?

It depends on what you are up too. For me it's good enough for Sgp rd, when I need to overtake, the torque is there to help me achieve that. When I buy my iron, my intention was to cruise the bike not cheong like a race bike.. So the 883 fits all my expectation..

I'm very certain that the 883 will not be your cup of tea coming from a VFR800.

Personally I had a 2000 883, super4s all had me for breakfast at pick up.i upgraded to mikuni 42mm carbs,hypercharger,python 3 full system,SE ignition module,SE ignition coil,SE high cams. Wif all these,yes I beat super4 in pick up,haha but my FC dropped fr 23km/L to 17km/L.

 

Yes u can do a 1200 conversion,but most cases that my frens did, because of e high compression,the cylinders leak. Best to do is get a 1200 instead to do a conversion, 883 is really underpowered.

Like what kepbin mentioned, there are a number of things you can do to improve the 883 or even upgrade to 1200 ( at a significant cost)... so with all that trouble, just get a 1200. Anyway, buying Harley is one of the bike purchase which you don't have to worry about whether you will like the feel or not. Just go for a test ride. Try both 883 and 1200. Feel for yourself and you will know the answer soon enough :thumb:
