    The stock '76 - '80 alternator is rated at 18 amps, I think, and is perfectly adequate for your bare bones system. The addition of the low output regulator from Cycle Electric as W. noted above may...

    If it is an H-D ball bearing wheel, the bearings for 3/4 and 1" axles will interchange in the wheel hub. See your dealership for the factory 3/4 bearings, and a center spacer for the 3/4 axle. This...

    It has to do with the location (depth) of the back of the clutch shell relative to the clutch hub. You need an extra steel to shim out the clutch pack to clear the Tamer parts.

    I personally favor...

    Once you do get them out, change them for 12 point screws. You may have to grind a little wrench clearance on the manifold. And you will need a GOOD box wrench (5/16, 12 point). I have done this so...

    And if it is a real '78 LowRider, it would be worth far more stock than it would ever be as a chopper. (But if you want to cut it up, go for it.)

    The preload method is in the manual. You will need a fish scale, analog preferred. You are going to shoot for a pound of preload measured at the axle. Read and understand the service manual on this,...

    I just ordered a set of #4 grind for a 1200 motor I am rebuilding. I have 10:1 pistons for it, but may dish them a little to make the motor more street-friendly. I think the #8 uses the same, or very...

    Most of that has to do with where the ports stall. If the port won't flow any more above, say, .500 lift, there is no need to lift the valve further. With roller cam profiles, you can max out the...

    I have built two 1200s with that 6 grind. At 10:1 or 10.5:1 (don't remember exactly) each made 90+ HP. You will need a decent cylinder head to get there, but this is a relatively easy combo to do,...

    Cylinder spigots are longer, because on the stroker motors for which the cylinders are made, the pistons go down further, as well as up further. (Something that some will overlook when planning a...

    If your cylinders clean up nice and round, and you have skirt clearance under .006, I think you will be fine with the standard pistons. Ring life may be a little less.

    You can use a 1200 XL piston as a guide. The only difference being bore size, there will need to be a cut on the front face of the rear piston for piston-to-piston clearance. Skirt length can be the...

    You got it. When adjusting any chain, it's best to find the tightest spot and adjust there. That is because too tight can cause more damage than too loose. That is chain maintenance 101.
