Question about Motorcycles
I have a 1993 Softail. It idols fine, but when I go to take off it lugs out and acts like it will die.
I would check to make the brakes are not locked up. Could also be bearings in the wheels as well.

If I am to understand you correctly, you're asking whether it would be more beneficial to get a workshop manual, which would generally cover a wider range of models and years, or the manual for a particular bike, and my advice is to get the factory service manual for your particular year and model. Or if you're just wondering where to get a manual, they're available from a local H.D. dealer or by mail from an out of town dealer if you don't happen to have a local shop.

Either the stator plate, or coil is not getting power. First thing I would check would be power from the coil with an ohmmeter.

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.
Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.
Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.
