That definitely helps.
I added torque values also from the 2000 FSM.

Made the changes and added the height. Thanks for extra information.



Thanks to both of you.

Hey Sportsterpedia people, don't know if this is the right area to ask this but (I'm gonna) is there a call to list all the various year models along with all their known faults/things to watch out for?
This would be really useful for people buying preloved bikes so they can quickly check the sporsterpedia for the year they are looking at and pay particular attention to those areas of the prospective new purchase.
Of course, this would assume it would be for standard (or stage one) bikes as modified bikes would bring a whole different range of issues.
If there is already a section like this, please smack my hand and point me there . . .

Cheers, Will

Not currently in the Sportsterpedia. But, we'll put in on the list.
I did a search of the forum and found some links that may be helpful depending on year model sought. Some of these also transpire to all models regardless of year model.

1. What to look for when buying an Ironhead: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ing+motorcycle
2. Tips For De-hibernating Your IronHead : a useful guide for ironheads which have been sitting neglected for a long time.
http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=69876
3. Question for when buying a new motorcycle: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ing+motorcycle
4. Rubbermount_EVO Buying Used: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ht=buying+tips
5. Buying a bike tips?: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ht=buying+tips
6. 883R BuyingTips?: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ht=buying+tips
7. I need some advice (first time bike buyer) : http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ht=buying+tips
8. Looking at a 1993 Sportster 883, any tips before buying? : http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ht=buying+tips
9. 1986-90 Evo Sportsters: What every owner should know but were afraid to ask: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ghlight=buying


edit: I created the page "Before Buying a New or Used Sportster" in the Reference section of the main Tech page under "Shop Notes, Tips and Tools". http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...used_sportster

I added these links there for the time being. If anybody has more info or links to add, I'll include them for when we get a chance to expand the subject fully. Links fixed

Thanks.
