Just go for a ride so your oil is warmed up and drain, refill. Unless I'm missing something I think most people don't bother with flushes.

Sure if you want, I see no need to flush unless it was sitting for years.

Also your Lucas primary oil is not made for sportsters.
It's a primary only type of oil, for big twins that have a separate primary and transmission oils.

I use either Bel-Ray Sportster Transmission/Chaincase Oil ($13)
or the HD Formula Plus ($9). Twin Power also makes it at $7.

I am not saying it will damage anything, I am only saying it was never designed or tested for our bikes.

I put Lucas specific for our bikes in mine once before reading about it. Drained it all and refilled with Mobil 1 synthetic. Expensive endeavor but cheaper than a rebuild if one were to believe some of the internet reading. I like to run just a little bit of the Lucas in my primary with the Mobil 1.

Ignition timing with SE 7500 rpm module.

I just check the timing for the first time since the bike was new. Factory settings as per the FSM is 15* BTDC with stock module. My timing is at 20* BTDC. I have ridden the bike since new. At some point I installed the module (maybe 2004 or 2005) and have had no perceived issues with timing. In 2009 I installed the SE coil. Ridden with no perceived issues related to timing. I wonder if the SE 7500 rpm module has the 20* built into it.
But 20* is for a single plug dual fire with stock module.

I thought about setting as per FSM. However, the bike seems to have run well all these years. Given that, I think it best to leave it alone. Just curious about what's in the 7500 module.
Anyone have any information or insight?

I posted a bunch of info on my question. Basically FSM states timing is 15* BTDC. Mine is set a 20* BTDC from the factory. It runs great. Is there any advantage to setting timing to 15* BTDC? If not I am going to leave it be.

Hey guys wondering if you can help me with some OEM info. I am going to a chain conversion on my 2000 1200S. does anyone know what the stock ratio is? I have two different kits I am looking at. One is 48 tooth rear and 23 tooth front. the other is 48 tooth rear and 24 tooth from. I am attracted to the better highway rpm but will 24 in the front kill my low end?

Stock for 1200s is 29T and 61T

http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...o:transfinal03

I know a 23T will fit under the cover but you may want to check on the 24T
It may need some clearance work.
