More than likely, dampness has caused corrosion to form between the turn signal BULBS and the turn signal bulb SOCKETS. FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE: Remove turn signal bulb from its socket, spray the socket with ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER, wipe off bulb terminal end with a cloth that has been sprayed with Electrical Contact Cleaner, put a little DIELECTRIC GREASE on the terminal end of the bulb, Reinstall the bulb into its socket, Remove any fingerprints from bulb with a soft cloth. Be sure to note that the Bulbs do not have broken filaments, Replace the Bulb if it does. That SHOULD take care of your Turn Signal Problem. IF NOT, then further diagnoses of the FLASHER UNIT is required, and I can help you further with that if needed. AS FOR THE TACH PROBLEM, Disconnect any wire lead within the TACH unit that you can find that are easily dissconnectable, and with the same procedure described earlier, spray out with Electrical Contact Cleaner, and reconnect the plugs. That SHOULD solve your problem. If not, contact me further. GOOD LUCK. -Dr.Mark

if you still havent started the bike yet from sitting.then i dont think the choke has anything to do with your problem.but ether way take the plugs out.I think your piston rings are frozen from sitting.did u winterrize it?with the plugs out pour a little auto trans fluid in each cylinder.very little.now crank the bike over to coat the cylinders. becareful it could be messy now let the bike sit overnight.the next day crank bike over again.but this time for a few tries.then install fresh plugs.and try to start it.p.s there will be white smoke from the transmission fluid. that will go away in a couple of minutes.then all should be good.

The voltage regulator is starting to fail. The headlight is flickering with the pulsing of the alternator when the motor is running. If you have had your Harley long enough, you are familiar with the "potato potato" sound when idling. That sound is the result of the 45 degree angle of the cylinders and the flywheel surging, which is absolutely normal. So, when the engine is idling and the alternator is surging in time with the motor, the voltage is surging as well; the voltage regulator is what steadies the power so the bike puts out steady light.
So now we are back to beginning of my answer to you; the voltage regulator is failing and that is what is causing your lights to flicker.
The voltage regulator is mounted on the bottom front outside part of the frame. An easy way to locate it is to get down there and find the oil filter, there is a box there with fins (heat sinks) right there. Change that and you will not have a flickering problem.

1. Headlamps Always On
2. Headlamps Inoperative From Switch
3. Unable To Turn OFF Automatic Headlamps
4. Park Lamps Inoperative From Switch
5. Park Lamps Always On
When the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, the body control module (BCM) receives a ground signal through the headlamp switch OFF circuit and an open signal on the park lamp ON circuit and headlamps ON circuit. When the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, the BCM receives an open signal through the headlamp switch OFF circuit and a ground signal through the park lamp ON circuit or headlamp ON circuit.

The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
The normal headlamps are turned OFF.
The BCM activates the system by grounding CKT 592. This action energizes the DRL relay. This condition allows a reduced voltage to flow to the headlamps. When the headlamp switch is turned to ON, the headlamps operate normally.
The parking brake provides an input to the BCM. When the parking brake is engaged, the DRL remain disabled until the parking brake is disengaged.

The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
