SOURCE: 82 harley sportster brake light

try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it

SOURCE: harley sportster 883 2005. Both the tail light

Not sure I understand your question.The tail light filiment goes on with lights and brake light filiment goes on when brake is applied.The extra filiment makes the tail light go brighter.If both filiments are on when lights go on then applying the brake won't change the intensity.You might have bad brake light switch causeing brake light to stay on.Have to do some checking to see if it's front or rear switch.

SOURCE: my 1998 Harley sportster won't start but the speedometer get's power

Different fuse. Check the fuse block located just behind your battery. Just pull the cover off and slide out the main fuse block, the very bottom one is blown if the starter wont turn over.

Horn won't work on 1987 harley sportster


Hi Anonymous, first check the wire connections to the horn making sure they are clean and tight, there is power going to it and the ground wire is securely fastened. Then look behind the horn body for a small set screw sometimes with a jam nut. This screw puts tension on the horn diaphram to vibrate alot or vibrate a little. Have someone hold in the horn button while you adjust the screw in or out as necessary. Good luck.

I have a 883 harley davidson sporster, was riding the bike and road over a bump and bike shut down and won't start


I'd check the battery first. I've seen the post break loose from the batteries in many Sportsters and leave them dead on the road. I've only seen this happen once on a Big Twin. Why? I have no idea. If nothing on the bike works, this may be the problem. If everything else works but it just won't start, I need more information. Does the starter engage and the engine turn over?
