Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

1 Answer

Trouble with wiring

I have a 1995 Sportster 1200 and the last time I rode it everything was fine, it sat for a week due to it raining and when I went to start it nothing happened. I did charge up the battery and I have blinkers, tial light, odometer lights, but there is no head light and it will not kick over. I have gone through everthing I can think of, I was on line looking for a skematic wiring diagram when I found this site. Is there any suggestions or help getting the diagram I want to ride!!

It sounds like the ignition switch might be bad. Test the ignition switch for power to the ignition side.

2001 1200 sportster cranks and backfires, carb and fuel good, could it be crank sensor?


Wasted spark system. If fuel and electrical is all good/correct it is often the case in these symptoms that motor cycle spark plugs that although looking good and firing outside of the engine are breaking down and will not fire under compression pressures on a power stroke but will fire unburned fuel on the unpressurized exhaust stroke when the plug again fires in a wasted spark ignition system and when so firing the result is a backfire, usually quite loud.

If your running the original battery the cold weather may have finished off your battery.
See if the head lights are operational. This will give you a clue to the battery voltage levels.
If you have a volt meter check the voltage.

If the bike is losing ALL power, I'm talking about dash lights, headlight, tail light, ALL lights, it's probably something tripping the main breaker. The breaker should be located either under the seat or behind the trianglular panel on the right side of the bike. I'd look for a frayed wire near the starter or around the rear cylinder due to the head in that area.

Good Luck

Remove the carb soak in carb cleaner, **** out small bleed holes with a wire from a wire brush etc. One of the passageways is still clogged, or the float is sticking.

Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.


Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.

U can go to any autozone, kragen or other chain auto parts stores and they will run the trouble code test for free, let me know what they find if anything, this also may be a fuel pressure problem
