Default Fitment between 2005 & 2006

Its been a long time since I needed to concern myself about moving 04 or 06 parts onto my 05. But now I am in search of another sporty and I have forgotten the differences between the years. I am looking to get a 04-06 but want to make sure that the parts I already have will transfer over if I get an 04 or 06. So before I buy I need some help from those familiar with the models. I am not concerned about tank size, whatever I get will end up with the 4.2 gal tank.

IIRC:
The 05 has a larger axil than the 04, front and/or rear I cant remember. so wheel(s) won't transfer, but will tires?

One year had a wider rear tire, anyone remember what year that was?

Will the same seat fit all three years? 07 is when they changed the way the seat connected isn't it?

If you remember a difference between the 05 and an 04 or 06 will you please post it?

Was 2006 the first year for the 1200 low? Is that stock tank 4.2 gallons it doesn't look like its the same shape as the 4.2 gallons.

Thanks!

Cindy, as far as the wheels, it’s a simple operation to change the wheel bearings to fit different axle sizes.
The rear tires are same size.
Seats will interchange without issue.
Often just looking up a part will get you Year to year fitment.
The larger tanks, I believe debuted on the Custom models, are 4.5 gallons and will interchange.

I just saw your last message, let me know if you need any of my take off parts.

'04 has 3/4" rear axle/ with spring clip. '05-'06 has 1" rear axle/ with "e" clip. They went to a 25mm rear axle in '07 or '08.
All tires should be the same sizes thru those 3 years.
'04-'06 seats all interchange with the corresponding gas tank.
Fuel tanks were 3.3 gal or 4.5gal, depending on model.
My '06 Sportster owner's manual and FSM only lists an 883 Low.

Thank you for the responses. This helps a lot! The one that was told to me as a 2006 1200 low, has the same tank graphic as the 2007 1200 low, but it has a choke. I am nervous about getting a bike that someone has done the 1200 upgrade on. Looking for stock as much as possible.

HD did make a 2006 1200 low. I went to the HD website and looked up parts for it.

The 883 Lοw was new in 2005, with the 3.3 gal tank. The 1200 Lοw came in in 2006 with the 4.5 gal tank. Front tyres and wheels the same dimensions. Rear tyres and wheels the same on all models, except the (much later) ones (Sսperlows, current Rοadster) with rаdial tyres.

If you check the various subjects of interest in the Sportsterpedia, there are often indications of the difference between years... Such as axles, tires, tanks, etc.

This is good to know. I wonder why a 1200 Low isn't listed in my FSM, it has updated appendixes, but no mention of it.
Cotton1 has a pic posted of his '06 1200L http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2065388
According to Sportsterpedia.com, under History VIN & Specs, the '06 1200 L was a mid year entry.

Mid year introduction? The 1200 Low is listed in the 2006 parts catalogue (# 99451-06A).

I suppose "mid year" means it was released in Jan. or Feb. like they do with automobiles. I don't have a parts cat. but an '06 1200L does come up on the HD website.
