SOURCE: starter not always turning motor

Possible solution. You probably know that harleys, unlike almost all the others used a bendix type to shove the starter motor's gears into engagement with the starter clutch. Since you replace the solenoid, the thing that pushes the gears into engagement; the battery, that would push the starter motor if the gears were in engaagement; and the starter motor, which would turn the ring gear if it was in engagement. So wht's left? Unfortunately it sound like it might be the teeth on either the ring gear or the bendix gear, probably the ring gear as it was notoriously weak on iron sportys. Not a problem you want to try to fix at home unless blessed with tools, room and time.

You just need to adjust your clutch cable.

SOURCE: my harley sportster the idle screw needs turning

You may have to take the breather off to get to the screw. Some of them can be difficult to get to. Standing on the right side of the bike looking down at the air filter, you can see the square looking top of the carb. On the right hand side of the carb near the top is the idle stop screw. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the idle speed.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: 1974 Harley Davidson SPORTSTER TURN SIGNAL WIRING

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 wd4ity@bellsouth.net.

Good luck
Steve

On my 2014 sportster 1200T after 5 minutes of idling, the left hand side contols, like horn,turn idicator and other functions, ceease working. until engine cools down.


Sounds like a cable has gotten too close to engine/exhaust and melted some but follow the left side controls cable to where it plugs . Maybe a bad connection where it plugs together.

Horn does not work


This is common with Harley's horns. There is a screw on the backside of the horn. Turn this screw in very small increments until the horn starts sounding again. If it never does, you need a new one. Make sure you check the ground on the horn.

883 wont start


The battery might just be done or warn out, if you get lights when you turn the key on, and can honk the horn and everything, then it should click, if you are able to honk the horn and lights etc. and they aren't real weak, when you hit the starter it should tick, if your lights are bright and horn is loud and brake light responds quickly, then I'd ask a Harley dealer about it.
