    i was about to order a Clymer shop manual, for my bike. i found the right year, but it doesn't specify for which size. i know it sounds like kind of a stupid question, but i just wanted to make sure before i spend $35 on a book :( the manual is the same for both the 1200 and the 883, right?

    thanx

    Injunwil, yes the XL Sportster *2004-2006 manual does cover XL883 and XL1200 (last of the carb models). It is the one I carry on long trips (it combines the "best" of the 3 HD Factory Manuals: Service, Parts , and Electrical Diagnostics manuals on the road (Ziplock bag). When at home however, I use the HD Factory Service, and Parts Manuals...a lot of money to be sure, but provides the most information on all three subjects...I save that $63 everytime I do my own service regarding the related subject matter.
