No Turn Signal front Back. no running lights back. Every thing else fine Horn brake tail lights

Hi Scott, is your speedometer functioning normally? The reason I ask is because the two are connected for proper function. Check the connection to your Turn Signal Module located behind the left side panel, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, if everything looks ok, replace the turn signal module. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at Good luck and have a nice day.

Why do I have no spark on 883 sportster?

There can be a multitude of reasons. If you can test the coil, primary and secondary and wires and plugs and etc yourself do so OR if you can understand or figure out the electrical and ignition systems you can track it down yourself but if not you need a shop to diagnose it and fix it. It could be simple or it could be complicated.

04 883 dies when run awhile. it then dies and won't start till it coold down.when it dies - no lights on instruments, no headlight, no turn signals, it's as if battry is dead

It sounds lie you may have an issue with the stator/charging system, I would reccomend puting a meter on the battery with the bike running and see what you are chargeing, Also see what the meter says when the bike dies. If it loses voltage or just dies. If the meter shows a drop in voltage then I would start with the basics or if neede take it to a local repair shop. Good luck
