Ironheads seem to be very popular; when there are questions, research options include the xl forum, so I thought I would bring it over for easy reference:

Wes, idiggplants started this organized Sticky list. Thanks very much Wes for this!

Here is a collection of informative posts made by many of us here in the ironhead forum. If you have a question about your bike, or need to fix something, your probably not the first. To avoid common threads from popping up day after day, and to keep especially informative posts a few clicks away, this collection of threads has been organized for your use. After you've read them and still have a question, feel free to start a new thread. who knows, once you've solved your problem, you might just see it here. If you notice a thread listed here that has great information, but no pictures, why not take a few pics while your doing the repairs/inspection? It could make future reader's repairs a bit easier.
Many thanks go to all of the original thread starters, video makers, and problem solvers. This site wouldn't be what it is without them.

Includes hundreds of threads under these headings:

XLForum community of IronHead owners, our bikes, and how we feel
