I know the missing photo. It is not of my bike. But I am certain that I have it. But I cannot find it.

It shows the inside of the gearcase cover, including the internal foofoo, and how it is open to both fittings.

More google and I learned that

Unfortunately no photo there, probably expired.

It was one of my photos, but they disappeared when this site was upgraded. Funny, I can still see it - it's just an exterior photo of the cam cover with both hoses coming out. Look at post #48 above and you can see the extra hose on that pic of my bike.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Nos mufflers from '94 Sportster and the actual difference in front muffler from '83. Not a big problem, but some annoyance.
