Slide the rubber cover off the adjustment nut on the clutch cable, loosen the lock nut adjust the cable until you have about an 1/8" play in your clutch cable at the lever. To adjust the clutch itself remove the derby cover, then the spring and retainer. Turn the post until snug and then back off a quarter to half turn, reassemble the derby cover.

Your alarm is on. If it's a HD alarm one long click turns it on and 2 short clicks turn it off.

SOURCE: Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.

Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.

Right hand signal will not cancel.


Did you replace the stock turn signals with LEDs?

If so you probably need a "Load Equalizer"

I have a 1200 sportster i have no power to my odometer the lights on it dont work its not showing the milage and the fuses have been replaced what should i do?


It could be the vehicle speed sensor, the ECM or the TSM/TSSM.

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is powered and monitored
by the Electronic Control Module (ECM). The ECM processes
the vehicle speed signal and transmits this signal to the turn
signal module/turn signal security module (TSM/TSSM) and
speedometer through serial data.
NOTE
The vehicle speed sensor cannot be repaired. Replace the
unit if it fails.
