2008 Harley-Davidson Nightster XL1200N
This is a short clip of me on my Harley-Davidson Nightster 1200. I bought
it brand new in May 2008. I got it customized with Screamin' Eagle Super
Tuner, Screamin' Eagle Intake, and Vance & Hines Side Shots exhuast. I got
it Dyno tuned in March
2010 and it made 81.12 rwhp, and 79 lbs/ft torque - it's definitely a
torquemonster. Also, the video does not do the Exhaust justice, it's louder in person. I will
try to upload some better riding videos, but I was just anxious to get a
quick video on a nice spring day.
One Nightster In Vegas ( BOBBED )
These are the most recent pics. Bike comes out the shop this week. I will
attempt to get this video out within a week.
There is a Fuel Pack that wasn't mentioned. The ECM was placed right in
fron of the rear fender behind the oil tank. The seat rides great. After I
didn't realize I had to much tension on the spring. The guy who made that
bracket weighed a lot more than me so when I turned down the dial to my
weight...oooohhh baby.. I love that adjustable shock. The coil was placed
between the two rockerboxes with the ignition mounted underneath. Sorry
the vid suck as it shows no justice on the paint job. Paint is still flat,
but textured and with peal. It looks awsome in the sunlight. The original
black denim is on hold as I am hoping to do another paint job this summer.
there are no risers on the bars.
The Exhaust does sound real raw when
you roll off the throttle, that's what you get when you remove the baffles
on vance and hines short shots.
the struts are 10" eye to eye
Great pics by clicking on the link below. It may answer several questions.
Here are some coil, speedo, seat, and headlight mounting pics that may help
some, along with other photos. Oh yeah and I noticed on ebay there's a guy
selling real good solid struts for about $39 and 10" long made out of cold
forged solid steel or something. Search "Sportster Struts"

'08 XL1200N Harley Davidson Nightster Pipes Intsall
More video of my Nightster before and after stage 1 modification. Vance and
Hines black Short Shots, Screamin' Eagle air cleaner, and Vance and Hines
Fuelpak. I also have my Progressive 412 rear shocks installed in the
'after' video. It was a really windy day the day I video taped the 'after'
video. That didn't help the sound, but you get some idea of the difference
in tone of the Vance and Hines. I don't think you can really hear just how
much louder they are. They're plenty loud though -- trust me.
2013 Harley Iron 883 Test Ride! | TestRides
I've been looking at, and thinking about, the Harley Iron 883 for some time
now. I've thought they were cool since they came out in 2009. After buying
a used XL1200L Sportster last year, it's really got me thinking about the
Iron again. Went up to Northwest Harley-Davidson in Lacy, Wa. yesterday
just to look, and was talked into taking one for a test ride. Well I almost
rode her home, but couldn't quite get to terms with the price. So I came
home to think this over before jumping right in and taking it...
I love the idea of this small, simple, rough & tough little bike. Very drab
looking, so it doesn't scream "Look at me!" or "Watch how fast I can go!"
It reminds me of the UJM's of the '70's & '80's. Love this bike... I will
absolutely get one of these Iron 883's!
As for the test ride, it was awesome! I really thought it was going to feel
under powered, but that was not the case at all. Even though I was given
very strict restrictions on how to treat the new motor, she performed very
well within those parameters. I still can't believe they have test rides
like this for customers - how cool!
