Are you getting spark? I know this seems obvious but check the kill switch if this particular model has one.

SOURCE: need to know what fuse runs the turnsignal flasher

The 1997 Sporty did not use a turn signal flasher unit. It uses a turn signal control module instead. This module controls all turn signals and four way flasher. It also performs the "cancelling" function once the time limit has run out on the flashing process. It's a "black box" about 1 1/2 inch wide by 3 inches long by about a 1/2 inch thick. It gets it's power from the Lights fuse 10 amps. If you contact me directly, I can scan you a wiring diagram and e-mail it to you.

I have a 1993 883 Sportster. Had trouble starting it one day and found it ran ok when I removed the air cleaner. Just had bike serviced and the air cleaner is almost brand new. Any suggestions

It ran good at idle with it off or it ran 100 mph good with it off the latter means you way to rich and need more airflow to balance . If it only idles with it off or very slow speed is smooth it could be the timing. Stock it shouldn't even idle with it off it thins out so much if you touch the throttle it should die with the air cleaner off I run a very tuned sportie chopper started 883 and now it's a 1300 stroker with a velocity stack and it takes a **** load of fuel to idle let alone do 135 mph in 3rd it took a long time to figure out how to even start it below say 55 degrees when I first put the stack on . Hope I helped u see the point I was trying to make its late I'm tired ...

Turn signals will work some times if motor is not

low voltage can make them stop flashing. If the battery is good, a new flasher can may be needed, A wrong wattage or blown bulb can cause the same problem.

When my 883 warms up it fouls out the spark plugs, as if it is getting to much gas, when I go to accelorate it backfires and bogs down. At idle it runs fine.

Is your 883 fouling plugs AS if warms up or AFTER it warms up? The enricher circuit is designed to be extremely rich in order to start a cold engine. If you allow you engine to "warm up" with the enricher on the entire time during warm up, plug fouling is typical. You should use the enricher to start the engine but disengage it as soon as you can keep the engine running with the throttle. Use the enricher just as little as possible.

If your plugs are fouling AFTER warmup and while riding, your carburator is jetted too rich or your air filter is in need of servicing.

Won't start?

With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness
