SOURCE: I have a 1967 Harley XLH Sportster. I rebuilt the

"Backfiring" is a pretty broad term depending on where you live. Some people refer to backfiring as popping from the exhaust while others refer to it as the engine spitting through the carburetor.

I'll assume that you're talking about popping out the exhaust pipe. If it does this after you rev the engine and it backfires on the way back down to idle, this is typical of an exhaust system sucking air. The mixture is extremely rich under these circumstances and will not ignite. But, if your exhaust system is sucking air, it combines with the fuel air mixture already there and bring it to an explosive mixture thus the backfire.

You can check you valves but I've always found that if the valves on an Ironhead are too tight, it's extremely difficult to get it started due to the low compression on that cylinder.

Check you ignition timing and points setting. Also, what kind of condition is your mechanical advance in the distributor in? I'm assuming this is an XLH model and not the magneto equipped XLCH.

What type of carburetor is on the engine? Hopefully not the original Tillotson that it came with. If it's an S&S, the low jet should be a 28 and the main jet a 66 to 70.

SOURCE: hooking up a tach on a 89 harley sportster 883,

Most aftermarket tachometers will employ a 3 wire system. A "power" wire, a "signal" wire and a "ground" wire. On a stock Sportster's ignition coil there will be 2 terminals/posts. 1 post will have a set of white wire on it the other a blue or pink wire. White is switched 12VDC (vehicle power) and the blue/pink is the secondary side of the coil (signal). I'd really need more information to be most helpful.

SOURCE: where is the oil filter

I don't think the '79 model had an oil filter. The '80 & '81 model had a bracket that had a filter between the rear cylinder and the oil tank. The 78 and earlier models had the drop in filter in the tank. I think you can put one on if you change the front engine brackets to '82 to early '84 models.

Good Luck

Hi Bobby, the neutral light switch is located behind the behind the front pulley sprocket. To access you need to remove the rear exhaust pipe, the rear master cylinder and sprocket cover. Loosen the rear axle and adjusters and move the rear wheel forward to loosen the belt, remove front pulley and neutral light switch.

My neutral light do not come on 2003 883 sportster


It could be either the bulb, wiring, or the neutral indicator switch. The switch is located behind the front sprocket cover. Remove the cover and it's located just forward and down on the side of the case. Unplug the wire from the switch, turn the ignition on, and ground the connector to the engine. The indicator light should come on. If not, you have either a wiring problem or the bulb is bad. If the light does come on, the switch is bad and must be replaced. Hopefully, just the wire is off of the switch.

Good Luck
