Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster:
- Fuel consumption (economy) is usually presented in L/100km (shows how many liters of fuel it consumes per 100 kilometers) or in MPG (shows how many miles it can go with one gallon of fuel). In the average case Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster will burn 5.90 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 39.9 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. It can be calculated that Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster can cover a mileage of 179 miles with a tank full of fuel based on its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity - 17.0 liters.
- Engine displacement of 1199 cc - this refers to the volume described by the movement of a single piston in the cylinder multiplied by the number of the cylinders the engine has. In the common case the bigger the displacement volume the more powerful the engine and lesser fuel economy. The displacement is commonly specified in cc (cubic centimeters) or liters and based on the Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster specifications its engine displacement is 1199 cubic centimeters.
- 170 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of XL 1200S Sportster measured in millimeters or inches. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster bore and stroke diagram
- 88.8x96.1 bore and stroke - this is a term concerning the engine parameters describing the ratio between cylinder bore diameter and piston stroke. If bore and stroke have equal measures then the engine is called square. According to the technical specifications of Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster its bore is 88.8 mm and the stroke is 96.1 mm. If the bore is shorter than the stroke as it is with this Harley Davidson engine then we say that XL 1200S Sportster has a long-stroke engine.
- 9.7:1 compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Higher compression ratio means bigger pressure of the fuel/air mix in the combustion chamber and better efficiency achieved of its ignition.
- Belt final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. Manufacturers have used all of them over the year and each one has turned out to be a workable technology. The final drive of Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster is belt.
motorcycle with belt driveBelts are fantastic final drive option as they require less frequent care than chains and last relatively longer than them. Apart from that there is no messing with chain lube. Belt drives are more economically effective than the shaft drive in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel and smoother than chain drives.
- Air cooling system: motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled and they both have their advantages. Air cooling is generally used in twin-cylinder engines with lower horsepower usually found in cruisers and dirt bikes.How to replace the Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster turn signals
- Replacing the turn signals of Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster is not a difficult undertaking and usually turns out to be much simpler than expected. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). Connect the wires properly after the new Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster turn signals are placed in position.Bike cover for Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Harley Davidson XL 1200S Sportster are important when choosing one. The overall measures of the bike could be increased by some aftermarket accessories. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.
