Hi and welcome to FixYa,
If the starter relay in your version uses blue / white and red / white wires, then to my understanding, connection would be:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Its a bad earth between battery and chassis or starter and chassis

Testimonial: "bournetoride: Your suggestion on earth was excellent. Turns out battery could not pass a load test. No prior indication of failure. "
It actually should have a lot more stuff such as headlight, taillight, brake light, turn signals, etc. What is is that you want to know? If you want a stock wiring diagram, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I think I have one here somewhere.

SOURCE: connecting wire from regulator
The large wire from the voltage regulator goes to the Positive side of the battery. As an alternative, you can also connect it to the starter where the large cable comes from the battery positive terminal to the starter. I think that's where most Softail models have the regulator wire connected.
If you connect it to the starter, all this does it make it a bit easier to connect since the battery is inside the horseshoe type oil tank. Basically, you are using the battery cable as an extension cord to the battery to keep from having to fish the wire up to the battery.

SOURCE: i replaced the starter relay
When you push the start button and the relay clicks the lead from the relay to the starter should have 12volts. If it doesnt you either the relay is bad or the cable(lead) is bad from the relay to the starter.Hope this helps.
