Question about Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883 Motorcycles
All lights work except for signals
Posted by Anonymous on
Sorry but my expertise and knowledge does not go back that far, on newer bikes it could be the TSM/TSSM or HFSM. Please post the answer as a comment when you find it. Thanks

check the wiring under the rear tire. you probably tore the wires. if that's fine. do your flasher work? if they do then double check the bulbs. if they're fine them it could be the tsm ( turn signal module ) Only consider replacing that if the wiring is fine and the turn signals worked fine before

The two wire system is for a turn signal only unit. The three wire unit has a turn signal and a running light in it. Remove the turn signal lense and you'll probably see a dual filament bulb. The two wire system is shown as an "International" wired model according to my book. One wire is the "hot" wire (Brown) and the other is a ground or earth wire (black) on the bike. On the turn signal unit, probably all wires are black. You can use a VOM to determine which wire is the ground wire or you can just try hooking them up in different ways until you find one that works.

I can help you with the wiring diagram but it will be the complete diagram. I have never seen just a turn signal only type wiring diagram. But, there's nothing to a '74 model Ironhead turn signal system.
All the wires for the system were gray but had these little "colored rubber bands" on the ends of the wires near the signal lights. The violet bands were for the left side and the brown bands were for the right side turn signals
Now, I cannot send the wiring diagram through this forum as it will not allow for an attachment. If you will contact me directly, I'll send you a wiring diagram as a jpeg attachment via e-mail. My address is email@example.com.
