I should be able to hit the 7000-7200 and still be in the power.
BTW my times with just the 7500 module and S&S Super E are 13.56@98.2 mph best and avg 13.77 @ 96

I killed my speedo that way(I suppose). It would read either 30mph under or the needle would just bounce. I replaced it with a Dakota Digital MCL3200. I had to solder a bunch of wire together. Although the line to the Speedo sensor was plug and play.

I dont need a speedo just a tach.Time slips tell me the rest.But my 1200S is mainly a drag bike.Only reason I have plates and ins on it is to be half ass legal to run it out the road to tune the carb.

I wish I would've taken mine to the track to see how it runs before the bike started having a bunch of issues. I'm thinking of doing some upgrades for the winter since I'm having battery and starter issues and need to figure that out anyway. Need to do some cam research.

I also run the Super E, thunderheader and I believe in the early 2000s the cylinders were bored .001 which probably just means it was rebuilt?

How do you like the dakota? I was planning on doing a build with this bike a while ago, so started buying some nice stuff. Grimeca brake and clutch, motogadget guage, custom braided lines, etc. etc.. Then I decided since the engine hit 50k miles that it was time to sell it. But no one wanted it for what I was asking so now I'm back to possibly building it up a bit.

It leaks oil from multiple places, so likely will have to tear down the motor and then I might as well do some upgrades. Just need to figure out what I can afford. Unfortunately not many great shops in Vegas that can reliably do this kind of work. Not that I know of anyway.

I like it quite a bit. It is an all in one deal. Rach, speedo, two trip meters, a clock and other functions that I haven't used. 350 USD vs the 400 for a stock speedo. The stock tach was on it's way out too and would have been another 300 USD or so.

Phew! Finally finished all 189 pages.

Picked up a 1999 1200S about 3 weeks ago. 11,000 miles, two seats, soft saddle bags (old), forward controls, different handlebars, small windshield, S&S carb-air cleaner-intake, and V&H straightshots.

Had issues with it idling. Took the carb off, full of crud. So I pulled the tank also. Still would only idle with the enrichner pulled up about 1/4 of the way. Pulled the carb again and noted the intermediate and main jet sizes. Also found the intake gaskets were leaking, not installed properly like a few other things I've come across. Carb was jetted for an 883. Ordered up a larger intermediate and a few mains, idles great now.

It's my first Harley. First bike was a 2008 Suzuki S40, than a 1995 Virago 1100.

Welcome from southern Nevada.

My 2002, riding from close to sea level to 8,000 feet elevation,
liked a 45 (0.45 mm) pilot jet, N65C needle and a ~200 main (2.0 mm).

If not going to run for a while, since the Sport has no bowl drain, you may want to shut off fuel and let it idle until it stops.

Just finished heads,pistons,cams and 2-1 exhaust on my 1998 1200S.Got the initial start up process over and first run down the road and the oil changed out.
It needs rejetted but since it is my drag bike I need to get the baffles out of a DanMoto Highwayman silencer.Anyone ever took them out? Cant drive them out there is no lip to hit on.

Got the baffle out!Had to take it to a buddies shop and use a big vise with a rag around the end cap.Knocked it out with a dead blow hammer on the mounting tab.No way was it going to drive out.
