    Yes. But you'll have a hole looking in on your stem. At least that's my experience on my 650.

    any ideas on how to get one of the bolts off on the primary chain view hole on a 95 1200. Sure it's the same on all of them. WITHOUT stripping the thing. I've tried an impact driver but again afraid to strip it.

    @JohnM

    You can use a banjo bolt brake switch right at the front brake cylinder. That's what I did. Lowbrow sells them.

    So I'm getting a 99 sportster to do a Crazy Orange type thing with and its my first bike. I'm trying to figure out what this bracket is and how to cut it off without F-ing up the frame.

    I assume youre talking about the neck gusset. Short answer is yes you ca cut it off. I just hope you have a lot of cut off wheels and grind discs. What a nightmare.

    look at this

    Question,
    I've got a Led Sled Oil tank with the fittings that they sell for it as well. The feed, return, and vent fittings are all the same size. Issue is The vent hose is too small, and the return and feed hoses are too large. So would it be wrong to swap out the fittings on the pump and the one for the vent for ones that match the fittings I already have on my tank? What it boils down to is running smaller line for feed/return, and a slightly bigger vent line. I don't have the measurements right now but the difference is 1/6 for the ID

I have found ONE ! company that sell this part http://www.buellsterparts.com/product.sc?productId=1316 but they do not ship to sweden and they donīt even return mail questions, i really need those to put my buell back together and was wondering if some one could do me a favour and get a set of them and ship to sweden ? or if someone knows about some other store that might still have a set for sale and would be able to ship in my direction ?

    Will this work also for putting pre 2003 seats on a 2005? I've been having the hardest time finding seats I like. Are front mount bracket adapters available?

I don't even really know how to check my ignition system other than if wires are disco'd. Tips tricks and pointers?
    This exact thing happened to me. Its your ground wire to your ignition. There is a black wire under the tank that spilts sometimes and that is it hah.

    It would be much easier to just get different fittings for the oil tank itself. I had this same problem on my 04 chopper I'm building. The threads for the tank is 1/4" NPT, it was really hard to find the sizes around town.. but online solved that problem. Two of them are 3/8" and one is 1/4" (obviously all with 1/4" NPT threads Not sure if I'm too late but hopefully this helps.

    Im sure someone has asked this already but I couldn't find it.

    Can someone explain to me the easiest way to be able to put a 180 rear tire on my 2001 custom sportster.

    got these wheels because I think they where a good deal... not even sure what ill have to do to make these fit on my 10' sportster. Could anyone tell me what id have to do? Front is a 21in off a wide glide, rear is off a knucklehead.

    **Looks like this has been asked a thousand times, and no, a 21in wideglide wont fit on my sportster forks.. I suck.

    would I be able to replace the hub on the front rim and use it?

    Will sportster 39mm forks bolt straight up with 1991 FXRS-CONV sliders? Are they interchangeable as long as they are 39mm?

    turk33 it would probably be cheaper just to sell the wideglide set up and pick up a 21inch for your front end. I picked up mine with a floating rotor and brand new tire 100 bucks.
