Default Celebrating Sportsterpedia's Fourth Anniversary

Here we are again - Celebrating another year.



There are WAY TOO MANY CHANGES over this past year to list them all.

There are hundreds and hundreds of additions we've made all over the Sportsterpedia. In the normal maintenance of the existing SP pages, we have been adding more info garnered from both old and new discussions on the XLForum. Many new pages of specific information have been added in 2019.

You can take a quick check of last year's updates on the Progress Thread:
http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1949239

As always -

We are grateful to all who have and are, directly and indirectly, contributing to the Sportsterpedia. The XLForum discussions continue to provide a rich vein of technical information to be mined and smelted into the Sportsterpedia Golden Book of Sportster Knowledge.

I'll make a second post, pulling forward what Hippysmack posted last year - It's a great summary of where we are going and how you can help!

From previous Hippysmack post (with minor edits)

The thread Titled 'Send A Note To Sportsterpedia Admin' can be your way of submitting info - Or send us a PM.


EVERYONE can contribute to the info in the Sportsterpedia. The info does not need to be complete. Even if you have only a bit of the information it can be added. For example if you know a few of the Sportster models built in say 1975 but not all of them, then you can submit what you know. Maybe you know the original price of the 1983 Sportster but nothing else. You can submit that info.

If you don't know how to format content don't worry about it. We can resolve that.

Also if you see a mistake or something that needs more detail or clarification be sure to let us know.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are bound to keep the Sportsterpedia free of all copyright infringement, especially the MoCo' s drawings and literature.
For that reason, we can transcribe documents but not word for word and we have to show ownership through footnotes and links (if applicable) to the originals.
You've probably seen tons of footnotes but they are required.
If you write your own document, footnotes are still required to show it wasn't lifted (also to show authorship to others in the future)
Pictures must belong to you or that you have explicit permission to post them.
Pics posted on the XLF (that you know belong to the poster) are free to use in the wiki as per the agreement for using the XLF.
It's sometimes hard to distinguish if the poster used someone else's pics, use your own discretion there.


If you've been involved in an extended discussion on the forum, maybe you could put together all the most meaningful posts and pass those along to us as a document to start or update one of the SP pages.

If you'd like to take some pics of your bike and send them to us,
You can post them in the Send a Note to Sportsterpedia Admin thread
Or, you can PM Hippysmack or IXL2Relax.

We need pics of OEM parts.
It would be great to have a few pics to choose from and if you can provide the part numbers, that would be great.

Wheels, spacers, spokes, seats, handlebars, gauges, distinguishing frame shots, brakes, drums, starters, mags, generators,
Seats, ignition parts, fenders, alternators, cam gear stamped numbers,
Pics of any stamped part or assembly number,
We would like to show what factory parts looked like for all models.
Bolts, bolts and more bolts.
What size bolt fits X part. Lots of questions on the forum about this.
There are a few lists on the forum.
But the lists do not cover all models.
Post what size bolt (nominal size, threads and length) that you just took off and what year model you took it off of.
Eventually, there should be an article on every part of each bike. (Maybe in eternity)

Pics of aftermarket parts also.
There's likely to be a spot for any mods you may have done.


If you would like to edit in the wiki, talk to us...
We can certainly use some extra fingers on the keyboard.

Every bit of help is appreciated - do what you can - do as much or as little as you'd like.

If you already have a thread where you've posted pics and/or info,
please point those to us and we can bring them into the SP.

If you just want to send a note saying "add this there", that's helpful.

Getting the information there is the most important part as mentioned earlier.
It can be massaged, edited or moved a whole lot faster than originally written.
If you write-up a document and pass it to us or paste it in the contact thread, we can massage it from there.

The Sportsterpedia is here to help each of us with our bikes.
That includes using it to help other posters who may be having problems of their own.
If you want to post pictures from the Sportsterpedia into your posts to help someone else,
There is an article here on How To Link to Sportsterpedia Pages or Images

The Sportsterpedia is a compilation of hard work and help from ALL of us, Including YOU.

Thanks!

I'd like to add a thanks to all who have contributed to the Sportsterpedia.
It's a huge resource for our bikes and getting bigger every day.

Words help alot to deliver the information to the reader but pictures are also essential.
As IXL2Relax mentioned,
When you work on your bike, take some pics and either post them in the send a note thread or contact us and we'll work out transport to get them included.
If you have spare parts (which most of us do), take some pics and send them on.
Every part has a story.

We can't do it without you and others who have contributed pics and information in the past.
So thank you all for your continuing support and past and present contributions.
Collectively, we all have helped to make it.
And collectively, all we have to do now is make it bigger.
