Hiya BluePatato! I just joined the forum and immediately jumped on your thread about Sportster maintenance. Yeah, after 10 years a lot of the links may have been moved. It happens. Is there a more recent list. I hope so 'cuz you made a great list and I dig learning how to take care of my bike.
Peace and God bless!
- Hippie

Hi y'all I'm new to this. Just curious how accurate the very first post is for a '95. Is it basically the same or is there a significant change between the years. Thanks in advance

Good luck!
Any chance you still have this? Lol thanks!

Careful chaps and chappess! PDF files are all illegal and promoting them on HDF is agin the rules we all signed up to when joining. H-D doesn't issue digital copies of their service manuals.

Unfortunately any links to other websites are going to break down as and when the other website makes changes at their end. The older the message you read, the more likely it is that the link won't work. Man hasn't yet invented the self-healing link yet.....
