    Default 95' Sporty Build

    Well hello Gents and Gals,

    Recently found a 1995 Sportster 1200XL off craigslist for $3,000. I looked into it and found it had 8,400 miles on it. Not a bad deal right? I'm thinking of keeping the soft tail for a bit and just simply making it my own. Want to change the handle bars to H bars, new seat and chop chop chop that rear fender. Also gonna relocate the tail light and license plate to a shock or axle mount. And here we go.

    Default Day 2 of Build.

    First things first drained all the oils, brake fluid and all. Noticed the brake line were those stock copper style with rubber cover and saw one had been pinched. So i ordered some Goodridge stainless steel ones. Then it was onto the handle bar swap. Purchased some Biltwell H-Bars really easy bolted right onto the triple tree screws.




    Then took off that stock air filter system and replaced it with a Arlen Ness Big Sucker Kit. Added 21% more horespower.



    Next i moved onto wiring up my license plate mount and tail light onto the shock mount. Looked a lot better, now jus to chop that rear fender and fender struts. Also took it for a quick ride today ran great.

    Yeah thats pretty much the plan Bernie. I'm not to great with wiring schematics and living in NY you need everything turn signals, mirrors but i feel like I have too much stuff on my bars, want to reduce it all somehow.

    Search the forum for "sporty rewire".

    There is a very kick ass, very detailed thread with wiring schematics that makes it super simple based on what you want to run. What I did and the same way they do it in the thread is to get the stock wiring diagram from the factory manual and just highlight the shit you need and cut the rest. I'm in the middle of a rewire myself and once I got it all apart and matched it up to the wiring diagram it was cake figuring out what I needed to remove and what I needed to keep.

    Not everyone has the welder/drill press/ lathe ect. But as long as you enjoy what you're doing its cool.
    Mild mods/bolt on stuff is actually good this time of year becaus the bike is never apart, you can ride the same day you work on it as opposed to an actual "build" where the bike has to come apart.

    Dk Customs Care package came in today. 3in Tank lift, Coil relocation kit, horn relocation kit, and ignition relocation. Took me about 2 hours to do everything along with a wire tuck that really gave me some space.
