The engine received dual-plug heads, an increase in compression (a 10.0:1 ratio up from the standard 1200’s 9.0:1), more aggressive cam profiles and a freer flowing exhaust. On suspension side of things, the Sport had three-way fully adjustable shocks where you could easily set your preload, compression and rebound damping, unlike regular Sportsters. Finally, the Sport had two disc brakes up front slowing it down instead of just one. This model was a great improvement on an already solid platform.
