Question about 2004 Harley Davidson XL 883C Sportster Custom
The wiring connections are as follows:--
Purple/black = Left TS.(turn signal).
Brown = Right TS.(turn signal). Black = Ground for everything.(in the main harness). Blue = Running Lamp.(the tail light) Red/Yellow = Brake. Note, in some models the wiring for both left and right Turn Signals is Purple, but the Purple wire from the main harness only goes to the left side while the Brown goes to the right. In most of the cases it works.But in some cases it has been noticed that there is a short circuit in the connections due to no ground connected.So in that case the ground has to be connected.The ground lead onto the bulb socket.But i suggest you connect ground lead because,in case if it shorts due to no ground then the tail light may also get short.So dont take risk just get ground connected.But take care you dont touch any live wire to the ground.insulate it properly while soldering and connecting. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

On the Harley the black=ground, red with yellow strip= brake light, blue=tail light. On your taillight i don't know since it's a custom part but the wires are easy to identify: Take out the bulb and locate which is the plot for the stop (it will have the lower resistance of the 2) then locate which is the wire connected to the clamp corresponding to that plot. After that all you have to do is to join the wires.
