Your nipple button under your hand grip is not disengageing when you release brake grip. The switch is staying in instead of popping back out. Spray some wd-40 in their. Its between the brake perch and the brake lever.
The harley heated handgrips are notorious for failing. Some people have reported finding a loose connection on the ground wire, like they did not crimp the terminal on the end of the wire at the factory. If they are wired externally of the bars (almost impossible to wire those any other way) then it should be easy to follow the wire down to inside the headlight bucket or in the nacelle or dash, (depending on what model bike) and check the connections. If both grips quit at the same time then it's probably wiring. If one quit first, then it may be the grip itself.
If you need to replace them, I would highly recommend not buying the HD brand anymore, and instead choose Polly grip heaters. They are made for snowmobiles and have a long list of benefits over the HD type:
- fits internally in the bar end, so you can use any grips you want
- cost $35!! compared to $250 for HD
- easy to install
I have installed over 7 sets in my friends bikes and not one single failure.
Theres only 2 things that can go "wrong" with a windscreen. It can vibrate loose or it can change its position. Try torquing all the fittings first. If that doesnt do it, reposition it (a litttle more upright, I'd guess)
As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.
check fuel level and petcock.getting fuel? next check for spark ground spark to cylinder fins and crank motor, no spark check cam postion sensor for voltage while cranking (if fuel injected check crank positoin sensor for voltage) if you get voltage replace coil
