I added this also to help explain the confusion in the books:


The Parts Catalog and FSM are a bit confusing regarding how many umbrellas are used and where. The information is there but it's just not clear.

The parts catalog only shows an exploded diagram of one rocker box assembly on the Rocker Arms, Covers and Pushrods page.
Yet, the description shows that 2 umbrellas are required. It's the same for all of the parts on that page (1 pushrod, tube ,lifter and related parts).
This is the norm mostly throughout the catalog with multiple (same) parts.
It's assumed this was done to save money on printing the catalogs (replicated information deleted).


The FSM displays the same exploded diagram as the parts catalog in the front of the Cylinder Head section.
It's only at the end of the Installation article does it say to install new gaskets on the middle rocker box (with the breather valve on the intake side).
There is no dedicated section on the rocker box or umbrella valves.

The new info and pictures you added should clear up any misunderstandings. Thanks!

I added a sub-document to the EVO - Electrical System - Switches, Instruments, Lights, Turn Signals - Section

It is the excellent commentary from 'jbee' regarding the repair of water damage to the Indicator Lights on 2014-later models.

Indicator / Warning Lights Not Working - Repair

I've added a page in the Ref section for cam and sprocket cover mods.
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...:ref:engmech03

Currently includes:
Ignition Cover Mods and Aftermarket Covers (aftermarket not started yet.)
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ref:engmech03a

Pics of Cam / Gearcase Cover Mods
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ase_cover_mods

Pics of Sprocket Cover Mods
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ket_cover_mods

Chopping the Cam / Gearcase Cover
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...gearcase_cover

This one is not finished and I need extra input on "How To" go about chopping the cover.
I've got the basics I believe but I'd like to add more on finishing the aluminum.
Any input would be appreciated.

I'm riding the fence on chopping the covers.
I like the factory covers.

But I also love when people experiment on their own bikes on whatever part thereof.
There are some great looking results posted. I'll add more if I can find more variations.

Under the EVO, Body Parts section, I've added info about Throttle/Idle cables (since I had to replace mine recently):

Thanks to SportyTrace & Batousaii for posting pictures to the XLForum to help others...
