Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster:
- The fuel economy (fuel consumption) shows either how much fuel the motorcycle is consuming per 100 kilometers or haw many miles you can ride it with a single gallon of fuel. In the average case Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster will burn 5.60 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 42 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 14.0 liters (or 3.7 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster can run 250 kilometers or 155 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine displacement of 883 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. Bigger displacement volume usually means more powerful motorcycle engine and less miles per gallon. It is usually measured in cc (cubic centimeters) or l (liters) and according to the specifications above Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster has an engine displacement of 883 cubic centimeters.
- 150 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of XL 883 Sportster measured in millimeters or inches. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster bore and stroke explaination
- 76.2x96.8 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 883 Sportster its bore is 76.2 mm and the stroke is 96.8 mm. If the bore is shorter than the stroke as it is with this Harley Davidson engine then we say that XL 883 Sportster has a long-stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 8.8:1. Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
- 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 883 Sportster is belt.
motorcycle with belt driveBelts are a feasible final drive option which last longer than a chain, require less maintenance and does not need constant lubricating, therefore no chain lube messing around. On the other hand, compared to the shaft drives they are much cheaper and lighter option, not to mention their economical efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel.
- Air cooling: the constant cooling of the motorcycle engine is mandatory for its efficiency and durability. Air cooling is generally used in twin-cylinder engines with lower horsepower usually found in cruisers and dirt bikes.Turn signals of Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
- You can easily find out how to replace the Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster turn signals and quickly do it yourself. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. It could be as simple as disconnecting both the male and female ends if box connection is used. There should not be any confusion connecting the new Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster turn signals after they are placed since the wires have been properly marked.Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster protective cover
Motorcycle covers come in different sizes and their sizing chart will help you choose the correct one using the given dimensions of the Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. A larger cover will be needed if the motorcycle has an additional backrest, sissy bar or panniers fitted.
