Sportster keeps blowing headlight, tail light and turn signal fuses.


You've got either a short or grounding problem somewhere causing all that. Check the wiring, make sure none of it is worn through the protective jacket to the wire, which may be touching other metal on the bike and shorting out, just as it would in your home electrical wiring and fuse box. Blowing or tripping a fuse protects you and the rest of the electrical system from further damage. If you can't find anything, check with a local repair shop.

HAVE 2001 Sportster 883 SPORTSTER XLH, added a LED light to the sissy bar, rear turn signal a breaks really bright. Back lights quit working removed the LED. Still no rear brake light or turn signals,


Hi V-twin, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

Wiring problems on 2000 Harley 883 Sportster Motorcycle. Bike was dropped busting right rear turn signal assembly. I replaced that turn signal, but it does not work. Wiring seems totally wierd as what...


If you have two wires that go to the turn signal and they don't work one way. You could try them switched around.
This is for a turn signal that is NOT also a running light. (Yellow Lens to Rear)
Use a test light and turn on the turn signal test both wires with the test light clipped to the ground or chassis of the bike. The wire that causes the light to blink will be the positive or hot side. That wire should attach to the bottom of the bulb.
The other wire is the Ground or common and that should attach to the side of the bulb holder.

None of the lights work, headlight and turn signals. Dash lights


The circuit breakers on your bike are under the seat- if you have an ohm-meter handy, pull them out one at a time and check them for continuity. If they all check good (meaning reading as a short across the terminals) the problem is elsewhere, and will need to be traced out. If you find a bad breaker that will not reset on it's own, replace it and try your lights again. If they come on momentarily then go out again- or they don't turn on, and you find a tripped breaker again, the problem is almost for sure a hot wire touching the frame, and will turn into a weekend project. Please let me know if this helps!

While riding all lights started to flash engine run erratic bike died of death bike will not start


Start with charging and load testing the battery. Then test the stator, to test the stator on the bottom of the right down tube is the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. With a multi meter, read the voltage from the stator, I forget the exact values but as you rev the motor the voltage should climb if it dosn't your stator is bad. If the stator is good take a reading again with the motor running at the battery cables, again I forget the exact value but you should have a steady reading at the battery, if it isn't and fluctuates it is bad.
