Default Sportster engine wt.

What is weight of engine approx.?

Can you lift it out by holding at the bottom of the jugs (using a winch and a helper)?

Sure after you strip a bunch down. What is your purpose? Complete engine swap? Most just get all the top end stuff off to clear the frame, wiring harnesses etc before pulling the lower. Plus it makes it lighter and less clumsy as you work down.

Purpose: take to the shop.
I unfortunately broke off a critical part... no details until I recover mentally.

So, do you know the weight of this beast?
200? 250? 300? Just trying to get an idea.
I'd rather not mess with the top end.

I've not done it, but it is suggested to lay the frame/engine on the side & unbolt the frame from the engine (properly supported, of course)...

haven't done the evo but the iron is not that hard and i can handle the weight myself. one tip: make sure you wash it as an oily surface will make a laughing stock out of you especially if it hits your foot.
you are looking around 180 at the most, probably a tad less. to get it out the frame, i use an over head chain foil for more control. that way you can angle the engine and or frame.
if you are doing an iron with the spur oil pump, bird in hand, mod the frame so the pump can be services without unbolting the engine.

Figure on approximately 200 pounds. If my memory is correct a kickstart ironhead complete with generator is about that. An evo with the aluminum top end may be less?

When Hammer built my 90", I tore the engine down to remove, but it was completely built, except for the primary on assembly. If I remember correctly, I used a strap and winch to get it close, then muscled it into final place. A second set of hands would have helped.

I would guess in the ~200 lb category, but really no idea.

Evo Sportster engines pre-2016?, the 1200cc weighs 12 lbs less than the 883cc. 2016? on, they started casting 1200cc cyl. separate instead of boring the 883 cyl. so they can use less material on the 883. That's all I know. Engine weight varies due to chrome or non-chrome, but 180-200 lbs is the consensus. The more parts you take off the lighter it will be....

Think of picking up an average male human that is still alive.
The dead are right out.
