2008 Harley-Davidson Sportster® 1200 Custom
Too many issues with too much nonsenseBy (I am an Owner) on Dec 07, 2009
I own this bike and honestly, it's turing into a money pit, even when I bought it brand new.
First, a mount that holds on the exhaust cracked and made a terrible noise for awhile.
Then, the rear brake makes a terrible sqeak and low speed braking.
Add on ... to that now the egine starts up funnyu half the time by starting up at full rpms for a few seconds before calming down.
Lastly, the cover for the oil tank is prone to the occasional fall off.
That said, rides great, runs mostly smooth and is pretty comfortable.
Mileage is at 6,900 and haven't run into any really serious issues but I get the feeling their coming soon. overall, this bike gets a 2.5 from me.
Harley Sportster 1200 C reviewBy (I am an Owner) on Jan 02, 2009
Ride: Very comfortable. Very smooth with the rubber mountings. Adjustable rear shocks are great to adjust when you ride one-up or double.
Engine: Has great power. Throttles smooth in all gears. Stage 1 upgrade added even more power for better speed and torque.
Looks: ... Anybody looks good on this bike. It has just the right amount of chrome.
I would buy it again
