Does anybody know where it is or where i could find some very technical information that may have this information? It is not in the owners manual and I am not having much luck looking online. Thanks!!

There is no spec available for this. The closest answer anyone can give, would be the engine itself. The Sportster uses a complete engine/primary drive/transmission unit, all integral into one case, similar to most imports bikes. Given the fact that the engine its the heaviest part of the entire bike (weighing in at aprroximately 250-275 lbs) and is located, bottm/center of the frame, the center of mass would be located there.
