I want a fuel injected solid mount r. With buell bottom end and better balanced pistons. I like how Harley rubber mounts their bikes rather than build a more balanced motor. Once my sporty motor was done it was about as smooth as my rubber mounted dyna was.

A bit different on the name, a Scrambled Sportster.

After the suspension bit I will work on how to mount a REAL Triumph Scrambler stock bench seat on the bike; it came off my 08 Scrambler. After that bit, a set of high side pipes and then it is ride and grin time.

Had an R come up locally for sale. It was lowered, owner had switched out the wheels for spoked and got rid of one of the front brake discs. Why the hell didn't he just by the custom originally.

Small Milestone

So, just reached a small milestone on my 1200R...



Still using the original shocks and seat! Feeling the itch, I've test ridden a couple other bikes recently... but the Sportster still seems to put the smile on my face, and has been reliable and cheap to maintain to boot.

There are some great motorcycles here and I'm really liking this thread. Can anyone tell me what year the Sportsters received the belt in place of the chain ?
Thanks.

Try Sportster.org also for a ton of info. The prior pic of the grey 883R was amazing would love one of those for city blasting and scaring grandmas.

There's an orange 05 883R for sale locally. It's beautiful. 19500 miles. Has After market shocks, black Vance & Hines short shot pipes, and Hi-Flo kit. Dealer price is $6995.
What's the general concesus? I always read the 883 was a dog power wise but that was in regards to the "Iron".

Looks like itd actually hamdle well, and man, is it good looking....

Can't give any insight into the displacement thing, but that sounds an awful lot.
Bought my '06 1200R at a dealer, SEII shit all around with 3,000 miles for less than $6k.
FWIW.

Way too expensive for my area, but you live in LA which has an economy all its own.

Too much. My '06 883 (not an R) cost less than that when it was new.

As for the power... Yes, it's slower than most bikes. It's also still faster than most cars. The pipes and air cleaner really open up the engine, assuming it was jetted appropriately as well. If you just want to cruise around town, it's fine. If you spend a lot of time on the highway, or are used to 70+hp, then maybe look at a 1200 or a Dyna.
