SOURCE: 1995 FLSTC Right Rear running light doesn't...

The only "mystery box" that I can think of is the turn signal cancelling unit. It controls most of the lighting on your bike. The box is about an inch and a half wide by about three inches long, little over half an inch thick.
Disconnect the plug on the end of the box and check the pins to make sure they're clean. Also check for any sign of a short between the box and the light. I've seen people buy the box, and they ain't cheap, only to find out that they had a short somewhere in the wire. If you do have a short, the only thing you'll see is that the light won't work. It will not blow a fuse or anything like that. As far as I know, there is not way to test the output unless you've got a special plug made up to do so with. If you know someone that has one, swap the box out with a known good one. Last time I bought one of these boxes, it cost $150 and that was several years ago. 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.

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.

The rear directional light on my 2003 sporster was moved back for the saddle bags. now, it is loose, how do I tighten it up ? Thanks


It seems to me that the nut that holds the turn signal on is on the backside of the fender strut between it and the fender. You'll have to take the fender strut off to tighten the nut.

Need installation instructions for oem vstar 1100 saddlebags and mounts.


Two bolts on the rear fender will need to be removed.
Also remove the passenger Pillion(Seat). Normally one bolt in the back and the pillion slides into the driver seat. Pulling back on the pillion after removal of the hold down bolt usually releases it.

The brackets to hold the saddlebags straight and away from the rear tire/ brake disc. Mounts with shims to the two bolt holes on either side of the bike. (remember those bolts removed earlier?) Center the saddle bags by eye. Sometimes it is best to have someone hold the bike straight and center from the rear. If the bike is on the kick stand, it will not be easy to center the saddle bags.

Next put the passenger pillion back in place.
Check the bracket clearance and make sure no part of the saddle bags are touching any moving part. You can bend the brackets to adjust but usually not necessary. Just be careful with the chrome fender flares.
Those curved chrome rear fender shiny things. :)
You can scratch the paint very easily while working with them.
Use a cloth/towel where you can to prevent marring of the paint.
Really simple to do with minimal tools. Some of the saddle bag bracket kits come with longer bolts. Use them!

My 1100 Vstar I used the twist rods from a set of Shoe Stretchers.
Screwed directly into a kuryakyn foot peg adapter. Black with a triangular tip worked great. Heck of a lot cheaper too!
Nice thing about this arrangement, only had to remove the foot peg bolts. Then the rear passenger seat. Easy to adjust the angle of the bracket by loosening the foot peg either side. Pull up, push down or bend out to get proper position.

Good luck!
Hope this helps!

Looking for sportster hard saddle bag installation instructions


nstructions Difficulty: Moderate Things You’ll Need: Step1 Determine what type of saddlebags you will be installing on your motorcycle. Saddlebags come in hard and soft styles, with each installed in basically the same manner. Hard bags tend to offer more security for your items but are a bit on the bulky side, while soft bags offering a little more flexibility. Step2 Check to make sure that your fender bolt area is clean and prepped for installation of your saddlebags. Both hard and soft saddlebags on Harley Davidsons are installed over the fender bolt area on the rear of the motorcycle, so clearing this area of debris and grime will keep it free of scratches and blemishes. Step3 Install any spacers or lifting brackets before you try and place your bags on your Harley Davidson. These spacers will keep you bags from resting against your exhaust pipes and will avoid damage to your motorcycle and to the bags themselves. Make sure they are installed tightly and spaced properly before mounting your bags. Step4 Open the saddle bag packaging and lay out the included hardware. The hardware will be necessary to properly mount your saddlebags to your fenders, so be sure that you do not misplace it. If your saddle bag comes with a fender mounting bracket, install it along the fender before proceeding. This bracket will be used to hold and stabilize your saddlebags, so it is essential that it is properly tightened and installed. Step5 Hold your saddle bag up to the fender and align the bolt holes in the saddle bag with the bolt area on the fender. Your saddle bag will have mounting holes in the side of the bag that will align with the mounting bracket. Place one of the bolts in the hole and tighten to hold it on. Put the remaining bolt in place and tighten them both securely once they are aligned correctly. Step6 Repeat this process with the remaining saddle bag. The bags should align evenly and be attached straight to avoid any imbalances or shifting while the motorcycle is in motion. Try and wiggle or move the bags to be sure your bolts are tight enough to prevent movement. Step7 Take your Harley Davidson for a short ride. Stop and check the fitting on your saddlebags and look at your bolts. Make sure nothing has moved during your ride and that all of your fittings remain tight. With just a bit of effort, your new saddlebags will make your Harley Davidson the envy of the neighborhood.
