Hello everyone! I’m new to this forum and new to owning a Harley. I’m 24, from California and I’ve been riding motorcycles since I was 11. Had a motorcycle liscence since 18 but never owned a street legal bike until 3 months ago. I bought my first Harley! It’s a 2006 converted 883 to 1200 xlh that had only 4400 original miles. It’s now at 6300 and counting! It has a wide glide front end with 39mm fork tubes with a 0.75” x 1.5” schedule 40 pvc spacers, forward controls, 16” x 1.25” black ape hangers, PBR exhaust, stage 1 air cleaner and 13” Dana glide shocks. Thank you very much for letting me become an official member to this forum. I have learned many things already as I changed those ape hangers out myself and also the clutch to a BDL clutch pack to get rid of the gernade ring.

This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute and please put at least your state in the LOCATION FIELD of your profile so we can better help you when you need it - Your climate, temps & altitude can make a difference to suggested fixes... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts so you need to use the LOCATION FIELD)...

CLICK HERE - then scroll down to 'Additional Information' and look for the field labeled 'LOCATION' - put your information in there - It will then show on each post you make... Look for this:


Post a PICTURE of your ride... Host the image on a photo website (but not photobucket.com), get the link with the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included & paste that directly into your posting (If you don't have the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included, then use the Image Insert icon along with the web address of the image)...

There are various sections to the XLForum - You can pick a section that is related to your problem/info, open that section and read the sticky threads on the first page - Then post your comment in an existing thread or create a new one to get information for your specific question... For new threads, make the title specific to your problem or info...

This is the index of sections: http://xlforum.net/forums/index.php
Be sure to read some/many of the FAQ/HowTo threads here:
http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16

The Sportsterpedia has a lot of technical info to review:
