Follow cHarley's link in his thread above. There is also a great thread in the Evo section that may help, see #2 in here.

Default 1975 iron head 1000

Hello everyone I have a few questions. I picked up a 75 iron head runs great well it did just rebuilt about 700 miles ago but my problem is that I filled up earlier this week it ran fine for a while now has a sputter when cruising at a steady speed still gets up and goes great and idles fine but just when cruising sputter and pops a little. Any ideas? I'm also looking into possibly trading it for a 1200 sport 1994 but the problem with that one is the guy says won't hold a charge new battery charges fine and will start but won't afterwards. I kno on my 75 I had to polorize the generator when I had this problem would it be the same on a 94 thanks for any replies

1975 xlch 1000
