Default Have gotten a lot of tips and thought it was time...

.. To register. I have a question that I will find the appropriate place.

I have a 2011 XR1200 that had a blown piston that did a number of the cases and was easy to buy a new motor. So I recently put an xl1200 in there and have started piecing it back together. It has been a headache. But is do-able. Not everything lines up-intake manifold-some guards and oil lines. it is getting there slowly though. Minor adjustments to things and tweaking some stuff. Thanks, for all the help with previous forums and post! Awesome feedback!
My names Ben R. From Colorado Springs, Co.
Thanks again!

This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute, right now, 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... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts)...

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

The Sportsterpedia has a lot of technical info on the XL models to review:
