SOURCE: i need a wiring diagram for a 2002 883 harley sportser

If you are going to install a new ignition unit, all you basically need to know is which wire is the "HOT" wire. Disconnect all the wires to the coil, turn the ignition switch on and use a test light to find the "power" wire. Once you know which wire this is, you'll need the wiring schematic for the particular type of ignition unit you're installing on your bike. Usually, if you got the website for the manufacturer, they'll have "installation instructions" under their "Technical" section. Usually, with a dual fire ignition system, there are only three wires to hook up. 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 am replacing stock headlight

Use an ohm meter to verify that the black wire is indeed a ground (earth). Put the meter in R X 1 and touch either meter lead to the black wire and the other meter lead to ground. The meter should read less than one ohm.

Now, turn the ignition switch on and the headlight on low beam. Put your meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT or greater scale. Connect the meter's black lead to ground. Touch either the red or the white wire with the red lead and see if you have voltage. Which ever wire has voltage is the low beam power wire. Then switch the light switch to HIGH beam and again check the wires, the "hot" wire is the HIGH beam power wire.

On your new light, you should have a wiring diagram telling you which filament is the low beam and which is the high beam. If you don't, just wire it up and flip the "high/low" beam switch and see if it looks right. If it doesn't, switch the wiring. The new light should have a ground somewhere as well. Since I'm not familiar with this particular light, the ground may be a body ground that relies on physical contact when bolted on the bike.

Good Luck
Steve

I am switching from a barnet back to the stock clutch on my 06 sportster 1200. How do I assemble the plates?


http://www.bikebandit.com/2006-harley-davidson-sportster-1200-low-xl1200l/o/m18603#sch622966

You assemble the clutch plates alternating with fiber to metal. The "spring plate" goes in the middle of the clutch pac. Refer to the draw at the above site. I hope this helps.

My amp kx1200.1 works only 5 minutes and then getting real hot somebody have any idea


You need to swap your main battery for a high performance kinetic... and maybe even ad a small kinetic in the back as well (fused separately) and see how that works for you. Just one oversized kinetic battery replacing your stock battery may do that trick. Remember, its best to install two batteries of the same brand and size, its ok to use the same brand and two different sizes (a kinetic 2400 and a kinetic 600 for example, but with an isolator) but its easier and simpler to just put in a kinetic 1200 or something that will replace your stock power sucking ineffecient lead acid stuff.

I replace my front light,sporter harley 2007,now the light came with 3 wires, and the cycle have 4 , how I can connect,


What color are the wires from the light and from the wiring harness? If there are two white wires somewhere, one is probably for the "high beam indicator" light.

My latest wiring diagram shows.

Black as ground
Yellow as low beam
white as high beam and high beam indicator lamp.

Hope this helps.

Installing led 2 wire lights


I had the same problem with my 1997 marauder the only way i have found to make them work is to hook up the LED signal lights into the stock signal lights i know it sounds crazy but what i have figured out is that it uses the stock bulbs like a fuse. all you have to do is take the headlight out just like you did when you wired in the LED lights and wire in your stock bulbs along with the LED lights once you have done this put the stock bulbs in the headlight assembly and put the headlight back in this should fix your problem at least it worked for me let me know if it works for you as well good luck
