shammy520 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 883r! 3rd time's the charm!

What up!

Picked up an 02 XL883R a week ago. I started shopping for a sporty to build as a desert sled or a chopper. I ride dirt bikes and adventure bikes, my main squeeze is a Honda Africa Twin. I am excited for the build but i am not excited for the slow 883 motor. I will have a 1275 kit from Hammer in the works more towards spring time. Going to focus on getting a more comfortable riding position first and see what we end up with!

My first Harley was a 07 Soft tail. wasnt my style.

Second Harley was a 94 Dyna that basically was an overall nightmare as soon as I bought it.

Really hoping this one works out for me. So far ive been enjoying it, excited for the build process!

This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute and please put at least your state/country 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 - whether building, modding or totally stock... 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 (including how-to post pictures) here:
http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16

The XLForum Sportsterpedia has a lot of technical info to review:
