Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy

1 Answer

How or where do I unplug and then remove the rear turn signal from an '03 Fatboy?

When backing up my bike, I clipped the left rear turn signal and broke the 'directional relocation' chrome stem that supports the wiring to the bullet turn signal. I am needing to unplug the turn signal wiring under the seat or fender (...?) and pull the wiring through, replace the 'directional relocation' (chrome stem between actual turn signal and fender - wires pass through the middle of this) that snapped, replace the directional relocation kit and then weave the wiring back through this piece to reconnect.

The wire connection should plug into the taillight. Remove the lens and you will see what I'm talking about. You will need to remove the black connector after you unplug it and probably cut the silver plug off to get the wire through the standoff. If you're good at soldering, just cut wires about 2 inches from the black connector and solder them back together and coverr the splice with heat shrink when finished. Good luck!

I have not removed the turn signals from a model this late. There may be a nut between the fender and the fender strut. You may have to remove the fender to get the turn signals off.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Harley Sportster and I had the LH

The unit must be grounded to the bikes frame. Connect it back up to the bike this time without pinching the wires. You should have a blue wire, a violet/brown wire and a black wire if you have the three wire unit, minus the black with the two wire unit. The blue wire is for the running light, the violet/brown wire is for the turn signal and the black wire is ground. If you don't have a ground wire, the metal part of the signal light itself is the ground.

Good Luck

How do i remove the rear fender on 2012 nightster


Secure the motorcycle upright on a suitable lift and then remove the main fuse and the seat. Lift the motorcycle just sufficiently to remove pressure on the shock absorber bolts and remove the lower ones and then lift the motorcycle higher to increase clearance between the tire and the fender.THEN unplug license plate lamp connector and the right rear lighting harness connector which has a brown band on the harness near the connector and then also unplug left rear harness connector and carefully pull both rear lighting harnesses and the license plate lamp harness through the holes in the fender and free all of the harnesses from the fender harness clips and remove rear turn signal stalk nuts from under the fender on both sides. THEN loosen and remove the front fender support screw and washer and nut and then the rear fender support screw with washer and washer and nut plates if present and remove the screw and washer attaching the rear fender brace. If necessary remove license plate lamp module harness from the upper harness clips on the left side of the inner and separate the license plate bracket from the rear fender brace. THEN remove the rear fender strut covers and the attached turn signal assemblies from the fender struts and pull the turn signal harnesses through the fender holes and struts as the strut covers are taken off. THEN put suitable materials between each fender strut and fender to protect the paint. It might be best to have someone assist and hold the fender at appropriate times. THEN you can remove the seat post with its washer and screw.

Romoving fuel tank from hd 1200x


To remove a 2011 XL fuel tank FIRST purge the fuel supply line of high pressure gasoline by removing the left side cover, removing the fuel pump connector from the ECM caddy cover (2), unplugging the fuel pump connector, starting the engine and allowing it to run until it quits and then operating the starter for another 3 seconds, turning the ignition switch to OFF, releasing/disconnecting the fuel tank quick-connect fitting, removing the main fuse, removing the seat and draining the fuel tank, (If inserting a tube into the fuel tank to remove fuel do so only on the right side to avoid damage to the fuel pump assembly on the left side of the tank interior.)THEN remove the vent hose, cable clip securing the fuel pump wiring harness, unplug the unplug the fuel pump connector, remove the bolt thread protective caps, lock nuts, screws and washers from the front and rear of the fuel tank, put a clean soft cloth or towel over the front of the fuel tank protect it from damaging contact with the top fork clamp, lift the rear of the fuel tank up, remove the fuel pump harness from the clip on the frame backbone tube and remove the fuel tank from the bike to a workbench area. Where the fuel pump assembly can be removed if necessary and where the tank can be cleaned if necessary.

To install a 2011 XL fuel tank FIRST install the fuel pump into the fuel tank with a new gasket, THEN place the fuel tank onto the bike over the frame backbone tube ensuring that the front fuel tank brackets go on outboard of the ignition coil bracket, put the washer on the long bolt and insert if from the left side into the front fuel tank bracket, the ignition coil bracket, the frame and the right side fuel tank bracket, put the second washer over the bolt threaded end and start the locknut. THEN put a clean soft cloth or towel over the front of the fuel tank to protect it from damaging contact with the top fork clamp, lift up the rear end of the fuel tank and put the fuel pump wiring harness into its clip on the frame backbone tube ensuring that the harness forms a loop between the clip and the fuel pump module to keep from pinching the harness between the fuel tank and the frame backbone, route the fuel pump wiring harness down along the left side of the H-bracket, secure it with a cable clip, push the clip into its hole in the H-bracket mounting boss, lower the rear of the fuel tank into place, put the washer on the short boltandfrom the right side push it into place through the rear fuel tank bracket and frame, put the second washer over the threaded end of the bolt, and start the locknut onto the bolt threads. And then tighten both the front and rear fuel tank mounting nuts and bolts to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.4-27.1 Nm), install the protective caps over the bolt threaded ends, install the vent hose, connect the fuel tank quick connect fitting and ensure that it is locked into place, fill the tank with fuel, carefully inspect for leaks , install the main fuse, turn the ignition switch ON and verify fuel pump operation, again inspect for fuel leaks, turn the ignition switch OFF, close the side cover and install the seat.

Handle will not turn water off


single cartridge? pull old one, flush some water through empty valve then install new cartridge. once installed, make sure the horseshoe clip is properly inserted to keep the stem in. once the clip is in right, there is a chrome tube with a ridge that slides over the barrel and the clip. the ridge acts as the stop for the handle. also make sure there are stops inside back of handle to hit the ridge on the chrome tube. the plastic inside the handle may break off allowing the handle to spin. the stem unit/cart may also be installed 180 degrees out of place. pull the lock clip and use the remover tool that came with new cart to rotate it 180 degrees with water supply turned off.

My turn signals won't blink or work


1) Blown bulbs sometimes cause this.

2) Check the fuse & blinker relay. Some bikes have different fuses for marker & blinking, even though they're in the same lamp.

3) It could be a wiring fault; these symptoms will happen when anything stops the rear signals from working. Try hooking them up to a battery, without the switch in the circuit, and through the chassis, then fix ground issues first. Work your back on the positive side until you get to the switch. It is definitely not the switch, because the switch is switching, so it's from the switch back to the lights somewhere. It's actually not that hard to trac, if you have a wiring diagram.

How to remove rear fender?


Remove the seat. Unplug the connector for the taillight and rear turn signals. Stabiliize the bike and remove the upper shock bolts. The job is also easier if you remove the rear tire. Remove the bolts from the fender struts on both sides. Be sure to hold the fender or clamp it place when removing the bolts so the fender doesn't slip out of place and get scratched. Unplug the turn signals from the taillight housing. Pull the wires and connectors through the holes in the struts. Lift the fender out.

Turn signal lights not working. turn on emergency flashers and the right signal flashes and bath back lights and the front right flash but the left front don't. any idea's


The 2 filament on the LH Front turn signal is most likely burned out, ...........or the ground to it, & the entire socket needs replaced. Caution lights, send signals to ALL FRONT & REAR lights. All turn signal lights must be in working order, as it is a "pulsating" currect surge sent to the bulbs, LH or RH, depending which direction you wisk to turn. If 1 filament is broken, the circuit is incomplete, & no flash will occur. Usually you will get one light that stays on, & the front or rear missing lighting, is the one whichis the culpret.

Wiring problems on 2000 Harley 883 Sportster Motorcycle. Bike was dropped busting right rear turn signal assembly. I replaced that turn signal, but it does not work. Wiring seems totally wierd as what...


If you have two wires that go to the turn signal and they don't work one way. You could try them switched around.
This is for a turn signal that is NOT also a running light. (Yellow Lens to Rear)
Use a test light and turn on the turn signal test both wires with the test light clipped to the ground or chassis of the bike. The wire that causes the light to blink will be the positive or hot side. That wire should attach to the bottom of the bulb.
The other wire is the Ground or common and that should attach to the side of the bulb holder.
