Harley Davidson Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


- the classic two stroke engine Vespas (since 1946 to ca. 1981) with gear shift at the handlebar have a direct drive to the rear wheel axle without any belt or chain.
- that is unique on scooters - but the newer models like ET4, LX, GTS etc. have now an automatic transmission with a variator belt.

Hi, Jeffrey the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee from $7 to $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download view and print.

Hi, Kenneth I'm sure there is a way but getting around your ABS light coming on all the time is going to be a problem and the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

That depends on load, and ambient air temperature.

Harley Davidson... | Answered on Nov 05, 2018


Hi, Bill and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Open-short-ground in the wiring between the alternator to the ignition module/CDI box to the ignition coil.
5. Faulty pins or sockets in the plug connectors.
6. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module/CDI box.
8. Faulty pulse coil.
9. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
10. Faulty ignition switch.
11. Faulty run/off switch
12. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
13. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

I don't know the answer to your question but it would be wise to obtain a wiring diagram so you can see the function of the wires you joined together and can have a more educated guess as to the source of the popping.

Hi, Anonymous sounds more like a wiring connection, before testing any electrical component in the Turn Signal Light Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, "AGM" batteries fall into this category more so than lead-acid types, also before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced your OEM lights with one or all LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer.
If no turn signals are working the cause could be a faulty turn signal module/flasher or the connector going to it, look for, corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion.
If your turn signal comes on but takes several seconds before it starts flashing you may have dirty contacts in the turn signal switch/button, the switch needs to be opened up and cleaned also the flasher may be starting to fail. It should be noted that cold weather will only exacerbate the situation especially when temperatures drop down below freezing and the location of the component, turn signal switches on the handlebar are at the mercy of the oncoming freezing 70 mph wind and makes it hard for the contacts to do their job covered in frozen grease/grime
If all four turn signals flash at the same time like hazard lights even though you only pressed one turn signal button then you have a LED light in the circuit and need a load equalizer that can be purchased from any motorcycle parts supplier.
If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function.
If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction.
If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first, for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire.
If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector.
If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Hi, Michael, I have seen this scenario many times it is unfortunate but technically the dealer is under no obligation for free repairs if you are out of warranty. You can, however, try playing the 50/50 card which most major motorcycle manufacturers will accept to keep up excellent public relations standings especially in these days and times of Facebook, Twitter, etc. The 50/50 card is you calling Harley Davidson customer service department 1 (800) 258-2464 and in a polite calm voice plead your case explaining how this part of your bike should have never failed due to the extremely low mileage, the tender loving care you give to your bike and the religious maintenance you have had done with valid documentation to confirm you are a responsible owner. At this point you have a 50/50 chance they will rule in your favor or either party can make a counter offer of 50% off on parts and labor or labor only or parts only or your next maintenance service is free depending on the scenario. There is a famous phrase "everything is negotiable" you may not get what you want but anything is better than nothing and the most important part of negotiation is calm polite leverage.
