I had a 94 flhtc traded to a 1999 fltri. When i did the bikes running temp is almost un beleivable. The 94 with the 80 inch motor was much cooler is this normal? I have friends that have traded And went to 88 inch engines all with the same complant. I put synthic oil no change in temp. I added a true dual set of headers cooled down some. Is there a heat sheild avalible or is the 88 engine. A hot running motor and the new motors on all the harleys to hot for southern states in the summer.


some punk kid stole my bike, now that I got it back Im trying to find out what wires go where on the ignition swicth because they rip the wires to hot wire it. On the back of the swicth there are numbers. Does anyone know what color wires goes to what number, or how do I obtain a wiring diagram for the swicth Thank you

OK ... I need help. I need to replace the stock between fuel tanks ignition - light switch on my FXSTS. That rotary unit with brass rod thing is not reliable. Seems that EVERY time I'm on a distance ride & needing to get somewhere, it messes up. Seems this is becoming an every month occurance. Anyway, ... I can't find a replacement in Custom Chrome or any other site I've tried. Anyone know who makes & where I can get a switch that is sealed (similar to that on my Sporty) that will fit & one that will not sacrifice the cover & looks of the original setting? Thanks. I appreciate your help. Braveheart; vertigo91198@hotmail.com


I have a 77 sporster with some sort of problem I cannot figure out. I am sending this out in order to find someone who might be able to help. I have tried so much to fix it I am at my wits end. So here goes. I have had the valves redone and since have not been able to ride at a steady rpm above 2500 since. I can ride around town just fine but the minute I hold a steady rpm above 2500 It will start to pop and spit as though it were running out of gas. I let it idle down and it recovers and is just fine for about another quarter mile at a steady rpm. I have rebuilt the carb, replaced the coil, new plugs and wires, condenser and points, the gas cap is vented, said a few choice words, and probably a few other things I can't think of right now. Has anyone had this happen?


I have a 1999 Road King Classic and the speedometer works for about the first 30 miles of every trip but then starts jumping and then finally quits all together. Any ideas why and how to fix this?

Just put in new battery and when I hit the switch, all I get is a clicking sound. Someone told me it might be the carburator. Do you have a schematic on how to remove and clean the carburator? Thanks

I replaced a ignition switch on a 1989 springer softtail. When disconnecting one of the wires from the switch itself I saw/heard a spark and the same when replacing it. Everything worked (lights, horn, dashlights)except the starter wouldn't when I pressed the start button. Did those sparks blow a fuse that might keep that button from working the starter? If so, where would that fuse be at so I could replace it? Thx for your time.


I have a 2006 road king, I am not happy w/the sound of the pipes, how can I make them louder? If I modify does that void my warranty?

Can anyone tell me if a 2001 Harley 883 Sportster is a good Bike for two.


The battery is strong (even with a jump). My 1982 XLH sportster will not start up. I can get it started if I run (or get it push) and pop the clutch.

My manual is too old to make any sense. I do hear a click in a small black box attached on the backside of the oil tank. Could this be a relay switch that needs to be replaced? Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

I have a 2004 Vulcan 2000 with 600 miles. I can start it (in nuetral with greeen light on) no problem. When it runs for 5 minutes, the temp light goes on like it is overheating. At that time, I can not shift it into nuetral, and if I shut it off, it will not start until the engine has had sufficient time to cool down. Then it allows me to shift back into nuetral with ease, and start up, until it warms up. Is there a safety precaution that prevents the shift lever from going into nuetral and stops the bike from starting until the engine cools??? Hekp? Thanks in advance.

When I start my 1996 Ultra the oil pressure guage goes all the way to the right but sometimes after I get it real hot, the guage works for a while. The oil sending unit has two wires coming off it and I was wondering if that is bad or if there is something else that is less obvious that could be bad. Thanks for the help!!


I am confused....where does the 3 quarts of oil go in the 79 sportster? I know the oil pan below the seat does not hold that much. Does it go into the main gear/clutch housing? If so then it seems that I would want to use something different than 20-50 weight. The manual confuses me as it says something about 1.5 pints for transmission and 4 quarts total oil for engine..but I don't see any seperation between engine and transmission. Thanks for any reply.

The L.E.D.S. in the turn signals are dim and the rear turn signals are bright. The bike has a badlander but I am only reading 10.5 volts to the front mirror turn signals.

Hi, just bought a Yamaha Majesty scooter second-hand for a very reasonable price.

Thanks for all your help!


carb keeps getting fouled, do I need to have gas tank cleaned out? Also, should I put an inline fuel filter on to keep trash out of carb?


The fuel gauge float is stuck on full on my 04 softail night train. I am currently in east France with only a basic tool kit,and alone. Its a pain trying to judge how much fuel I have whilst trying to cover long distances,and contend with the alpine winter conditions. Is it easy to fix with only basic tools and how to do it,called my dealer but got a lecture about the warranty,nice as they serviced the bike prior to departure.

Any help before I leave this house and net connection?

Thanx Midge


got a new 06 love it!!! hooker slipons, power copmmander. 2 questions for you experts out there. 1) seems to make valve noise (some) Maybe thats because i had a softail before and the fairing keeps all the extra noise in ? Just curious. 2) whats the best map for my configuration. my current map is m807-214. Runs like a raped ape just want to know if anybody else has this combo, If there is a better one? Fuel milage -performance is the goal. only had it on for a couple of weeks rode 3 times. GREAT !!!

Hello everyone,

I just bought a used 99 ninja from a friend of mine. I rode it for about a wekk and it would not start again. I changed the battery, spark plugs and everything still not starting. Finally we broke down the fuel system and had the parts tested. All parts are in order. We are about to replace the fuel system relay, but I can't find it. Where is it located and is there anything else that we should check? I am a new rider and I am not very familiar with the working in's and out's of the cycle.

Thanks, Nemesis


1996 1200 sportster - I recently filled up and when I parked my bike I noticed a bunch of fuel leaking from the overflow hose infront of the engine. I had to shut off the fuel line to stop it from leaking. It is a lot of fuel and it doesn't stop for anything. Any tips on where to start? Thanks!


2000 dyna superglide FXD. Hit a large pothole and my engine light in the speedo came on. Runs great, no leaks fluid levels fine. I must have jolted a sensor to failure or somthing.

Bought the bike at a Harley shop 250 miles away and they told me then and still tell me they can put a electronic cruise control on it. When I ask the Harely dealers closer to me they say they have never heard of being able to do it on 2001 and older bikes. Has anyone ever done this? If so could you email me and let me know how you did it and what part #'s you may have used to do it. Thanks

To Wally with the 06 Ultra. I have one myself with all of 138 miles on it. Down for winter for new exhaust, seat, detachable tour pak, backrest, lighting, heated grips, etc. Be prepared to spend LOTS on HD parts at the dealer for the detachable rack for the tour pak ($129) 2 different kits for docking hardware ($45 for one $53 for the other) then between $200-$400 for detachable backrest/pad, then $35 for lock for rack, and $35 for lock for backrest. That doesn't begin to describe the large amount of time/labor for all the dismantling of the electrical/speaker wires, antenna, and if you have the tour pak off, you have to get an antenna relocation kit ($79) to use your radio. I did all that with my 99 Ultra, and it's a hassle unless you plan to ride a LOT of time with the tour pak off. Instead of getting a PT job to pay for all of this, do as we do, scour ebay for the parts. Lots of people, myself included, buy our parts there at 1/3 to 1/2 HD prices. Be careful who you buy from, and make sure their "feedback" indicates they are reputable. Got any more questions, or want more info, contact me any time.


just got 06 ultra and would like to be able to make tour pack detachable any tips

I have a '94 Dyna Glide and the foot lever (brake) is so high that my foot has to really curl up uncomfortably to stay covering the brake. Is there a way to lower it down some? I see the bolt that is easy enough to get off, but it seems things aren't really adjustible because you still have to put the cotter pin the same place as before. Am I wrong? I'll be the first to admit I'm one of the least mechanically inclined people I know, but I'm hoping that this is something someone can walk me through. Thanks for any sincere advice or help with this problem.

Is there anyone who can tell me if I could fit a 160 rear tire on a 1999 Harley FXSTC without major changes? I had a 150/18 on it and now I want to go 160/18.

My primary crankcase is leaking. My guess is that the outer seal needs replacing. How do I get written instructions/diagram on how to do this repair myself?


Could any tell where I can download a repair manual for the above, I'm from the country-side in Australia and am finding it very difficult to find a hard copy. Thanks

I had problems with the starter not cranking and traced it to the digital dash sending a signal to the relay saying that it was running(over the preset rpm). This happens intermittenly, If it won't crank, if I turn the key off then back on, it will reset then maybe will crank again. Is there any fix for this? I disconnected the wire leading to the relay for now, but I like the safty of it just in case I use the wrong thumb when I use the horn.


I got this bike from my dad who let it sit for a while (only 8500 miles). He said he cranked it a few months ago. I have read the manual and tried repeatedly to get it cranked. It turns over but does not fire up. To make it jealous I fired up my 1100 V-Star but that did not work either. Any suggestions?

Thanks,Mike

Just purchased a new 1200 Sporster Roadster. The bike runs great with no problems. I'm thinking of adding some different slip-on mufflers just to get a slightly louder/deeper sound quality. Not interested in any extra performance or power and definitely not interested in drap pipes. I've heard a Sportster with some Screamin Eagle II pipes and I think that is too loud also.

My questions: Anyone used the Harley Davidson slip-ons in the screamin Eagle section of the big book on a 2006 yet? If so, how much difference were they. I've been told they should work fine with probably no need for change in the jetting or anything else and would sound better but not super loud. I was told by the HD shop that these are not as open as the Screamin Eagle mufflers so they do not generally need any jet changes-but might.

Any other suggestions or opinions out there on this.

Main thing I want is a better slightly louder sound quality with no need to change jetting or tuning.

thanks Daryl

1997 fxdwg, the lower pushrod seal are leaking. As far as I know, bike is still stock except for the cam... do I need to remove the cyclinder in order to change the seals? If so, what else should I consider doing if I break it down that far, just buying the bike right now and it has 44k on it.


Itchy you might check the oil presure switch wire might be lose. also have you ever cleaned the oil presure screen. Just a few things to look at. Good luck ZIP.


I belive you should check the intake most likely its sucking air and causing it not to fire because of lack of fuel. try removing the intake and spraying fuel from a squrit or spray bottle and see if they both fire then.Might be that when the motor warms up the metal expands causing the intake to seal better causing the vacume to increase. Just a thought good luck ZIP.

After 50,000 miles, my 99 Fatboy's oil light began flickering on a few days ago as I was running the highway. I changed the oil and filter, but the light now stays on.

could anyone tell me why my turn signal works if the bike is standing and the wheel is turned , but as soon as it is upright and i am ready to go it doesn't work at all. There are no signals at for turning or flashers.


I have charging problems with my 84 Ironhead. One day while riding it wouldn't start. After we pushed it to get it started, it ran about 2 miles down the road and everything went dead. No lights, no horn, no signals, nothing. After sitting a short time it appeard to regain some juice so we pushed it again and I got about another 2 miles down the road. I took it home and did some tests which led me to replace the voltage regulator. Now all I get is about 11.2 volts at the battery with the bike running @ 2000 rpms. I pulled the generator apart and it looks pretty black. It also had black dust come out of it. The main amrature looks like it may have some bad spots but when field tested the generator seemed to be putting out 10 amps to the amp gauge. Can anyone shed some light on what might be going on? I can charge the battery full and ride it for a few hours but then the horn gets weak and the right hand signal gets slow and then pretty soon it won't start and then dead! Please help! Thanks!

I just purchased a 2001 Deuce from a friend and I finally figured out how to set the code so I can disarm the alarm via the blinker switches.

Does anyone know where the siron is physically located. I am hoping that the 9v battery is shorted or a wire came off.

Just wondering what kind of oil and how much I need for the transmision of my 1995 sportster 1200. thanx


THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS YOU CAN DO. SPORTSTERS ARE KNOWN FOR THIS. CHANGING THE OIL WILL HELP, AND LOWERING THE OIL LEVEL JUST A LITTLE BIT. ALSO THE BIKE MAY BE BROAK IN ALL OF THE WAY. SO, CHANGE THE OIL (WHEN IT'S HOT), AND THE OIL LEVEL SHOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE, BETWEEN "ADD AND FILL". THAN TAKE IT OUT AND RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT FOR ABOUT 20 MILES. ALSO IF YOU LET THE BIKE SIT FOR TO LONG ALL OF THE OIL MAY GO INTO THE CRANK CASE, SO WHEN YOU START THE BIKE IT WILL BARFF OUT THE AIR CLEANER. (REAL MESY). THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO TO YOUR BIKE IS LET IT SIT. IF YOU DO LET IT SIT, MAKE SURE THE GAS TANK IS FULL, HOOK A BATTERY TENDER TO IT. (STARTING THE BIKE ONCE AND AWILE WILL DRAIN YOUR BATTERY. THE RPM'S HAVE TO BE AROUND 1500 OR SOMETHING TO GET THE CHARGING SYSTEM TO WORK CORRECTLY.) ONE LAST THING, WHEN STARTING A SPORTSTER, GET IT RUNNING WITH THE CHOAK OUT. ONCE IT GETS GOING, GET OFF THE CHOAK AND USE THE THROTTLE LOCK AT A HIGHER IDLE TO WARM UP THE BIKE. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS LET THE BIKE WARM UP BEFORE YOU GET GOING.

I really want my bike to sound loud, low and rumbly. I know NOTHING about pipes and don't want to be sold something that I'm not happy with at the dealer. Can anyone give me some advice? Thank you!

My 03 Electra Glide Ulra had the circuit breaker recall completed last year. I have had 2 complete power failures while driving since. Bike will restart after cooling for 10 minutes. Dealer hasn't/can't fix the problem. Has anyone had this issue and found a soultion to fix?

  • The front brake caliper(s) make an irritating rubbing sound
  • Mike     
  • harleybike@cox.net
  • 07/26/2005

Well HD has not yet fix that irritating rubbing sound because I have it on my 05 Softale Deluxe, both front and rear what i was told to try is replace the rotors & pads not a cheap fix but what can you do,I am not sure about your scooter but mine have the cheapest rotors HD could find. Beside the irritating sound they rust up in a fog then you have to brake out the metal polish and spend a hour or more rubbing off the rust.


i bought this bike wrecked and have been rebuilding it, and i got it running went through almost the whole bike. i had been riding it for about two months everyday to work. everything was fine and it ran great! well until last sunday,i went on a long ride and at the end of the ride i was losing power. by the time i got home there was gas running out of the air box and it wouldnt start. so i took it apart replaced the spark plugs and then i ran fine. i rode it for a couple days and then it did it again. i dont understand,i had a dealer go through the carbs and i went through the rest. I NEED HELP! i dont know alot about bikes yet and im tired of shooting in the dark.


My wife's Sportster's brake light stays on. Anybody have that problem and how to fix, please?


The front brake caliper(s) make an irritating rubbing sound with each revolution of the wheel. Dealer has cleaned rotor etc 2 or 3 times & says most 2004 Harleys have this defect & there is no solution from Harley's Tech Dept. Bike has 5000 miles and has done this from first mile. Any solution?


Does anyone know what will cause a clutch cable to push oil out of the adjuster?

I am having a problem with my 97' fuel injected Road King. I will be driving down the road and all of a sudden the bike will start to buck or cut out all together. Sometimes it will start again right away and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I can go for miles without a problem and sometimes it happens right away, so it doesn't matter if the bike is hot or cold. Has anyone ever heard of this problem and if you have what was the fix? This is very annoying because the bike is very unreliable. Has anyone ever heard of a computer going on a Harley? Email asap to get her back out on the road. Thanks L

I'm looking for a rear lowering kit for a 2002 Road King (FLHRI) with hard bags, but would like the option to switch to Leather Bags if I want to. The White Bros. kit sets the angle back on the shocks, as I understand it. Not sure about Burly, but, have been told they are either similar to, or the same as White Bros. From what I understand, these will not allow me to use the Leather Bag. A friend has told me to check a company by the name of TJ Products, which dropped the shocks straight down on his 1997 Road King. I've not been able to find them anywhere, on the internet or otherwise. Would appreciate some recommendations. Does anyone know the best way to do this, without changing shocks ???? Thanks a bunch. Ron


Bonnie you might try taking the light out of the picture and useing a light tester ground the tester lead to the fram and poke the tip of the tester in the wire from the switch left or right if it blinks on either side. I would guess it is probably the light haveing a grounding problum. Also I would look at the flasher itself it might be shot and need to be replaced. Good luck Zip. P.S. if all else fails when sitting on the motorcycle if you put your left arm straight out to your left it means left turn and if you bend it up at a 90 degree it means right turn and 90 dagree down means stop its all legal and works in a pinch. Have a great day.


What is the proper gap setting for the points. Thanks

Have a weird problem with the right turnsignal on my 96 Sporty, have to push the switch 10 or 15 times to get it to come on. The weird part is: then for a minute or two it will work with one push of the switch. After that, it's back to 10-15 times. Replaced the switch, does the same thing. Crossed the plugs under the seat, right to left, left to right, does the same thing. Left signal works fine. Anyone have any ideas on this? Zip?

Dealers all fully booked and sun is here. Been told that the procedure is in the manual by a service manager. Can anyone help please???????

I have an 04' 1200C Sporster. I added dual discs brakes and I cannot build up pressure in the lines. I have checked the lines and connections. Everything appears to be assembled correctly. Everyone I talked to says to just keep bleeding the brakes. I have been doing this for 2 days. Any help would be appreciated.


The running lights (headlight and tail lights) are out on my bike. My rear brake light works when I hit the brake and I know the bulb in my front headlight works, I am not getting any power to the headlight though. I think I blew a fuse. I can not find the fuses on my bike. Does any one know where the fuses are on my bike, or is there some type of relay switch for the headlight?


How can i repair the linkage without taking off the inner primary? This is the linkage from my heel toe shifter to the tranny. It is a splined shaft (steel)which is connected to alumiun link. Due to vibration the alum piece has lost most of its splines. If they were the same metal I could spot weld them. I do not want to take my bike down for this .


I need a Clarion Radio for Kawasaki Voyager.

I have a 1980 yamaha 1100 special I am trying to restore. However, I got a throttle control from ebay to replace one that was missing a start button. But when I combined them, the replacement only had three wires while the original one had FOUR. Two wires for the kill switch, one for the starter button and another loose one... is the loose one a ground wire? It is black and has a screwhole hook on the end... also the replacement throttle with one three wires had the outer rubber sleeve removed and was wrapped up with black electrical tape, thats why I assume one of the wires was removed... could you clarify? did I get the correct year part to match? or was the three wire different year than the four wire? thanks.

Hello bill On some of the old ironhead starters being that they have been around awhile they get wore out. Its time to replace it or rebuild it. When they begain to drag they could over heat causing them to burn up. Kinda like using a drill with a dull bit and forceing to over work untill its stops. You might check with the HOG PEN in nice california they stock alot of old harley parts and might just have what you need to fix your old one or replace it. Just some ideas to get you going again. Good luck ZIP.

Bob just a thought the problem might be in the radio controls in the handelbar switches they might of shorted and thats why the radio doesn't come on.

Zip like you i am in my earl 50s and also I dont normally rely on anyone or any one thing, I was thinking on your terms and feel that i can trouble shoot with just a single test wire and DVOM, I appr4eciate all your avdvice and once again Thank you Keith


I own a 2003 Heritage Softail (FLSTCI). I know this seems like a dumb question, but how do I find out the size of the tail light bulb? I would like to replace it with an LED bulb. Apparently, HD changed these bulbs mid year of 2003. I have removed the original bulb, and it is not marked anywhere. It could be an 1156 or an 1157. Thanks for any help, I appreciate it. Mike


Keith I would think that if Harley makes a tool for checking a system on your motorcycle it would be to your advantage to own one but for the average home taught machanic its more of a trial and error. If you dont own these tools I would suggest trying to take the item out of the system and check it independently such as running a direct wire from the sending unit to the tach if it works then Id say its in the wiring somewhere if it does not id then check either the sending unit by replacing it or the tach.I myself am an oldschool home taught there isnt any old harley I could not fix. some of the new electric stuff will stump me for a while but with a little determanation i will over come the problem.I've been riding since I was 15yrs old im now 56yrs old I've never taken a bike to the shop. My answers to some of the questions on this site are to try to help other people like me figure it out for there self instead of paying a shop labor price and not knowing anything about the motorcycle they ride.Now back to your question if there is a tool to check out your problem buy it and make the job easy but i always believe there is always another way to solve the problem it might take a little longer but it can be done. I hope that this might help you good luck. Zip.


 

Thank you for the information.I traced back all my wires and found a direct short under the bike near the break switch. Thank you very much. I am now back up and running the roads again.


ZIP- Got your info on 2002 sportster,but when trouble shooting electrical do I need a scanalizer and break out boxes as noted in the Harley manual?Seems to me like I could use a DVOM??I guess I am asking does a person trouble shooting need all the fancey tools that Harley says you should use??Any and all suggestions would be appreciated Keith


CAN ANYONE TELL ME THE LOCATION OF THE 15AMP FUSE THAT SEVES THE FUEL PUMP ON MY 02 ROADKING?


What would be the best brake pads for a 05 Roadking Classic?


Hey Ken I would recomend getting rid of the zenith and replacing it with a bendix with a ajustable main they seem to work better and you can rejet it to what ever you like. On a 1000 i would belive it would work just fine for your needs as stock without much hassle. You could contac the Hog pen in NICE California Im sure he could sell you a good used one at a very good price. Just an idea. as for the spring on the float looking at the side of the float bowl with the hinge for the float the spring under the float then around the needle then just before you put the bowl all the way up you need to push the other end of the spring down inside the bowl as you put it up to tighten the bowl in place.the tab on the float should push the needle up to seat just about when the float is about 1/32 below the brim of the bowl. But if the needle isnt seating properly it will flood and fill up the crank case causing the oil to become deluited and not work as intended. Good luck . Zip.


TatKat if its starts klicking when you turn on the key its shot maybe! or it is to small of a relay or curcuit breaker or you have a direct short and its causing the curcuit breaker to work like its is suppose to preventing the wire from burning up or what ever it is connected to.For example if you have a wire that needs 12 amps running through it and you have a 10 amp curcuit breaker in line it will click it will require a 12 amp curcuit breaker to maintain the amperage needed.You could take a peice of 16 ga. wire with a fuse in line and replace the wire with the curcuit breaker and see if it blows the fuse if it does then Id say you have a short somewhere if it does not then Id look at the curcuit breaker. Just some Ideas to check out good luck . Zip.


please help me!!! I have my neighbors 83 sporster XLX 1000 with a zenith fixed jet carb. she wants me to get it running so she can sell it.

Hello Guy What is a pancake tranny or did you mean a panhead tranny? Just in case it was the later I would say One Qt. but a pancake tranny Im not sure what your talking about unless its a Volks tranny on a trike. Just trying to help. have a great day . Zip.


Keith You might try to find the speed sensor it might be going out I would look in the electronic ignition area or some where near the crank. It has to be a sensor that counts RPM Iv. heard of them being magnetic and some times loseing there strenth to pick up RPM or get some debre on them causing them to lose their strength. Just a thought If i had a shop manuel I could tell you for sure but dont have one sorry. good luck .Zip.

Check with CORBIN seat manufacturing they might just make a after market that would just fit your needs. If not it could be custom made to your needs if i had a picture of kinda what you needed or wanted.Or you could leave the stock solo and add a pinion pad for the passenger. just some ideas.


Does anyone know what kind of two seaters would fit on my brand new 2005 sportster 883 low. What years from bikes can I get them from and the sizes of bikes? Example:WIll a 1200c fit my bike or something of that nature.


while running new oil lines on my '77 sportster, i must have crossed one, idiot light stays on and pressure guage reads zero. there are 3 nipples coming out of the oil tank and i have an external cooler. can anybody tell me the proper routing? thanks and ride safe.


Does anyone know the fluid capacity of an 84 4 speed pancake tranny? I think it's somewhere around a pint and a half but don't want to over/under fill. Thanks in advance.

Good riding to you.


Stacey If it worked for two days then nothing I would look for a lose wire or ckeck to see if there is a relay or curcuit breaker in line from the pos. side of the ignition to the starter. Just some Ideas good luck. If it cranks but no fire look at the coil it might be on its way out.or a lose or bad wire to the points. Again good luck.


I can bypass ignition and hot start right to the starter from the battery but I cannot get the ignition to work. Took it all apart found this out put it back together it started for 2 days now back to square one. Any ideas?

Stacey


Aileen You can try a shop called THE Hog Pen located in a town called NICE in california they stock alot of old and hard to find parts. Good luck.


Leroy maccoy lets see if we can brake this down to simply doing it easy. Look at this as two systems one for starting and running and the other for lights. From battery ground to ground. Positive to key switch from there to coil does not matter which side opposit side of ciol to points turn key on start bike. Now you have it running RIGHT! now for the lights all you need is a hot from the keyed on point unless you want the light to work when the bikes not running to a light switch from that piont two wires to the head light one for the low beam and one for the high beam and ground the light scocket to the light housing .that should take care of the front of the bike now for the rear two wires from the same location on the keyed switch to the rear one directly to the tail light and one to a brake light switch then to the brake light wire.I hope this helped if not ask and I will try to explane what you dont understand good luck Zip. P.S. you didnt mention if it was electric start or a kicker. If its electric from the keyed switch in the on position to the push botton then to the starter.


Tara I would recomend buying a new pair of shocks from harley it would be the safest way or depending on your weight you could have the springs cut on your stock shocks as long as you didnt bottom out after they were cut but if you picked up the bike then the springs would be lose untill in was sat back down. the second method would lower the biks but you might lose handling abilty.Have you thought of buying a pair of boots with heels? That way you wouldn't mess with all the enginering put into building it right. and it would handle the way it was desigend to.


I have a new sportster 883 low. Due to my height, the bike is still about 2 inches too high. I can reach the ground by only the balls of my feet. I want to get both feet firmly on the ground for comfort and safety. Should I get lowering shocks and would that work? Or, should I get lowering brackets? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated by myself and my husband.

I have an 81 goldwing that turns over very slowly regardless or battery comdition. (even does it when I bypass the solenoid and use my car battery) I have two starters, so I tried both of them in my brother's Goldwind and they both work fine in his bike. What could be binding in there?

Thanks, Matt


Look under the seat or side panels . But if im not mistakin there are circut brakers no fuses.


If its not droping below 12 volts i wouldn't worrie. But you might check the voltage regulator it might be on its way out.


my wife has a 91 sportster and it wont charge al the time sometimes it hit 14 volts and go to 12 thats in the batter and ever thing is tight and clean please help me shes want to ride it i dont get it


I'm looking for the fuse case location on a 1982 XLS. Anybody know where this is?


Time to replace the regulator DJ.


Hey george just get some steel plugwires and tie them togeather run two wires out of each coil hole. that way you only need one coil. It will work trust me.


Hey charles try running a ground wire from the light housing to the neg. side of the battery. sounds like there is no ground once you mount the light. just a thought .


Hello Jim if you have the light mounted with no rubber mounts its like this . Take the groung wire and ground it inside the light housing with a screw or rivit then run the high and low wires togeather to the switch it must be a three position switch put the low wire to one poll and the high wire to another poll now run a hot wire to the middle poll of the switch and your set power to each side high and low. the light will work if you use a direct full time hot wire if not you can run a hot wire from the keyd on positon of the key switch. I hope this helps and good luck.


Hey Ken if your battery is very low in charge or has a bad cell your charging system will not! charge the battery because of this when you start the bike and turn the lights on the bike dies. You will have to charge the battery first and then check the charging system by having the RPM at about 2500 and hold it steady there and disconnect the pos. side of the battery it should keep running if it dont the generator is bad and should be looked at another way would be to temp. install a amp guage between the neg. and the pos. terminal and check the output of the gen. just some things to try.
