I am getting ready to service my '02 883 sportster for the first time. i guess I should say me servicing it for the first time, it was service just before I purchased it. I have ordered all my parts, and have received most of them, the rest should be in today.
Here is what's on the list to do:
-Change engine oil, and filter, use Amsoil 20 W 50
-While oil filter is off, install oil pressure gauge
-Install T, run line, fabricate bracket, Mount Gage
-Change primary/transmission oil, also 20w-50 amsoil
-While I'm in there, check and or adjust primary drive chain, Ajust clutch
-Replace front caliper brake line, due to rusty rubber to metal connections, Of course, bleed brakes, with DOT five brake fluid
-While I'm there, install new front brake pads, and install a 4 1/2 inch set of bar risers
-check belt tension
-check rear brake pads
-change rear brake fluid/bleed
-check air cleaner
-grease-lube misc
-add dipstick with oil temp gauge
-check bearings, front and rear wheels, headset
What am I missing?? What else do I need to check/ service??
I will be taking pics!
I hope to start tomorrow night!!
Oh, by the way, I don't have my own garage, long story, but my DW and I are full time RVers, I have access to campground garage.
Thanks
Tony

Might check to see if you need the cable extenders for that riser?

The cable should be ok, stock are 2 1/2" so only 2" higher, and I pulled the cable up the other day and it seemed ok
