No, the early Ironheads were originally wired with circuit breakers. Most of the time, they were located on the rear fender under the seat. They are metallic "boxes" about one inch long by half inch wide with two studs, one silver, one copper.

When the circuit breaker senses an overload, it will trip just like a circuit breaker in your home "breaker box" but after a short time, it will reset itself. If the overload still exist, it'll simply trip again. This will continue until you either remove the power from the circuit or repair the overload.

Good Luck

Taking off the speedo?

The older Harley speedos are driven by a cable and can easily be replaced by any type of cable driven speedo. I assume your Sporster has the tank mounted dash (my 72 is this way), it's fairly simple too unbolt the dash and remove the speedo. If you're wanting to replace yours with a newer (electronic pick-up) that could be quite a project. Hope this helps
