What color is the coil wire in a 1996 Fat Boy wiring harness?

I have a 1996 Fat Boy and want to fit a led timing. For this I need to splice into the coil wire from the ignition harness. The instructions say they are blue with orange trace (front) or yelow with blue trace (rear). I don't have any of these colors!

I have a pnlc1001ya can I get a replacement charging unit as the rabbit has chewed the cord


You want the AC adapter, not the charging unit. If there is sufficient undamaged cord, you can splice both the wires together and use the AC adapter.

Carefully identify the wires - one will have a raised rib or line printed on it. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation off each end of all wires. Matching the wire pairs, twist the stripped wires together. Fold the stripped wire back in line, and wrap the spliced wire connection with electrical tape. Do this for the other wire. Inspect you work to ensure the spliced wires are completely covered and do not touch each other. Wrap the entire spliced section in electrical tape and hook it up to the charging base.

Ebay has a selection of replacement ac chargers. Look on the back of the charging unit for the model number, and observe the voltage and current ratings.

2000 Fat boy starts sputtering and lights flash on and off


Check you battery terminal connections. Can't think of any other reason that the rear light should be fluttering. If battery is tight then trace through your circuit breakers with a test light.

if you have the old harness and the connectors are still in good condition that should be as easy as replacing each wire individually from connector to connector. remember to solder your wires one at a time matching color to color and wrap with heat shrink tape, then incase the new wires in a new plastic wire conduit to protect from road grime.

This is going to be a problem that will need to be tracked down because there are several things that could cause this. It's going to be in the electrical system, and any one or combination of the following can cause this, Faulty switch, especially the ignition switch, bad wiring which could be a bad connection, loose ground, bare wire, or broken wire, These are the two cheapest, but the hardest to find. Now, it can also be a bad or malfunctioning ignition module, coil, voltage regulator, and magneto assembly. You will have to test each of these. I recommend that you start at the spark plug end and work your way back since most of this is in line and work in conjunction with each other. Keep in mind that this being an intermittent problem, it may be extremely hard to find.
I also have a 95 Softail, and recently had a similar intermittent problem, turned out that there was a hairline crack in the regulator, and the problem would only occur if the regulator was warm enough for the crack to open a bit. I also traced the wiring harness, found and replaced several wires that were in bad shape, thinned, stretched, corroded, etc... You will be amazed at how much wear the wiring harness will have on a 13 year old bike.
Don't let this discourage you. In my opinion, the mid to late 90's models are the best HD ever built, and the Evo is by far the best engine. With the newer bike you have to worry about things like, crank and cam sensors, ECM's, fuel injection, and all the other electronic BS. It's to the point that the average rider can't work on his/her own bike, which is getting away from the HD tradition. That's a great bike you have, keep it for a long time. I may buy a newer bike someday, I don't know, but I do know that I will always keep my 95. Good luck with this and be safe.

You've got something that's pulling from the battery. It could be as simple as a loose connection or bare wire touching the frame, it could also be a bad relay, and this will generally show when testing for an open circuit. Check any added electrical devices. Also, keep in mind that the system on a Harley doesn't charge the battery, it only keeps it topped at where it's at. So, if you have a half charge on the battery, you can ride to Hawaii and back, and you'll still only have a half charged battery. This is where a battery tender comes in helpful for garage time. I'm afraid you're just going to have to start tracing wires, and checking relays.
