I set aside today to work on the Sporster. The left turn signal switch was broken and needed to be replaced and I planned to do a 10,000 mile service. Well, I got the switches replaced with new, shiny chrome ones. But in the process of doing that I had to remove the throttle cables, which meant that I had to take apart the air cleaner. This was a good thing because the air filter was shot and the air cleaner itself, a Dragtron II, was in pretty bad shape. I couldn’t find another filter and so I went up to American Eagle Harley Davidson to pick up the Screamin’ Eagle air cleaner that I’ve been putting my pennies away for. I also had to pick up a new enricher cable because the one that I had on there was broken.
So now the bike’s got a shiny new air cleaner and is running much better. I didn’t get to the fluid changes or the bath, so that’s the plan for Sunday.
