Sporties run on one cylinder when the battery is stuffed or half flat. I dunno what other possible causes it could be? anyway it could be worth trying a known good battery.
what year is it? there is a 'factory fault' on the early fuel injected models, but i dont remember the details off hand.

I finished putting Sara's Sporty back together last night so we can trade it for a Bonnie. Prick thing only ran on one cylinder. Got depressed and haven't looked at it since.

did you have the carb off? a gap or a rag in the intake, wire off on the ignition module, hose on the VOES, spark plug there? is the lead attached, did you fill the tank full to supply both cyls, is there 2 cyls there, someone diddnt borrow one the other day... hey what do i know.. sorry bud, cana help.

Wasn't keen before but I like the spikey exhaust things now. They suit those pipes.

The Sporty is an 04 with the carb off the 97. I'm waiting to get the original carb back as the VOES setup is different on the 97. It should work in theory. I'll pull the plugs and check it all out at the weekend. Definitely no gaps and no fuel injection. Its just being a dick!!

i ran with this battery un-tested but was told it "should" work, id seen one on a drag bike but it wasnt starting or running much, a few sleepless nights before i started it up.. good old sporty, started 1st bang...

so i'd say its a good buy, i do get asked where the battery is.. it is standing up in the box!

anyway, here are the specs...

ODYSSEY PC310 Drycell Battery.
PC 310 Specs: 310 cranking amps for 5 seconds, 250 cranking amps for 10 seconds, CCA 100...
Length 5.43" x Width 3.39" x Height 3.98" SMALL!

cheers

This is for the geeks out there (& me) Shocked

Went for a skid yesterday... nice day out in to Miranda and north Waikato
Testing out just how far I can go on a tank...
190Km and used 9.6 litres of fuel (1 stop) heaps of gear changes and hills for 1st 92Km and SHW1 back home 98Km, tried to get a good mix to average it out...90- 100- 110KmHr

So that’s 5.05L/100K
Filled and drained my tank empty standing up right (it has no reserve) 7.8 Litres
So riding hard I’m probably down to 120Km, easy riding not stopping and pulling away all the time could get out to 165Km

The 98Km SHW1/motorway ride home @ 100KM/Hr worked out at 4.69L/100Km... Real good.

Factory says XL1200 Sportster (1986 - 2003) - Fuel Economy Range: 43 to 51 mpg - 18 to 22 km per litre - 5.5 to 4.6 litres per 100 km

So I seem bang on even though I’ve modded intake, Pipes & removed Voes... chain conversion gearing must be good too.

Not as bad as I thought, glad I had a tune up...

cheers
