SOURCE: Electrical Problem

It sounds like your ingition switch has failed. This is fairly common if you have a key fop that flaps in the wind. Pretty eash to switch them out. A HD switch is about $60.00 I got an after market that was $20.00.

SOURCE: Replace coil on Harley Sportster 883R 2006/7

Replacing a coil is one of the simpliest jobs on a Harley. You've only got four connections. Two of them are spark plug wires and it makes no difference which wire goes to which cylinder as the Harley ignition system is a "dual fire" type system. Both spark plugs fire at the same time every time a piston comes to top dead center.

On the other two connects, the small primary connections, these make no difference either as the coil in a non-polarized type coil.

So, nothing to it, just make sure you are using the correct coil for the bike. The primary resistance of the coil should be about 3-4 ohms for your electronic ignition system. Simply unbolt the old coil and bolt in the new one.

There is a round plate on the right side of your engine. This is the timer cavity. It has the sensor inside it and it provides the pulses for your tachometer as well.

Speedo and rev counter dont work on my 2003 883r sposter


this may be the sensor problem.try changing the pick up sensor.
if the sensor is ok then it may be the cable which transmitts the signal may get damaged.check the cable for continuity.
if this also seems to be ok then the problem presists with the speedometer itself this may corrected by servicing the speedometer or changing the meter with new one.

The red light on the dashboard is always lit on my harley sportster why wont it go out ? i have charged up the battery and taken it for a run but the light is still on . i havnt taken it for a run in about...

It may be your "check engine" light or charging system light. You didn't go into any great detail, so I'm not sure. Check the charging system is by hookin up a volt meter set to 20v across the battery + and - terminals. Should read 12.5 or higher without the bike running. Start the bike and you should get 14.3. This is a BASIC test and even if the bike passes you can STILL have charging problems. The check engine light will have to be diagnosed by a dealer unless you or a friend has a scanner to pull the trouble codes from the computer.
