Turn the engine off and try to get it into neutral. If you can, then it means your clutch needs adjusting. It's dragging. To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjust sleeve in the middle of the cable. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster sleeve inwards to get as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then, remove the derby cover from the primary cover. There is a spring and a lock nut under the derby cover. Take these out and you'll see an adjuster screw in the hole. Turn the screw counterclockwise until it stops. Then, turn the clutch 1/4 turn clockwise. Reinstall the lock nut, spring, and the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the sleeve back out until you have 1/8 inch free travel at the lever.

Good Luck
Steve

Why only left turning signal not blinking only when headlights on? green arrow pointing left seen but not blinking. When headlights off, both turning signals work perfectly,


It sounds as though you have a wiring problem around that particular light/signal.

Check the black earth leads to the light and the signal - it may be nothing more than a 'bad earth' due to corrosion where the earth wire connects to metal.

Check the main power wires, too. It should be an easy fix .. make sure the wires are clean and secure

Problem with turn signal when headlight is on


this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first

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.

Your bike came with front running lights (black wire) and turn signals. The wire color for the turn signals are gray wires. The grey turn signal wires have small rubber bands on them to indicate which side they are for. A brown tag indicates right turn signals and a violet tag indicates left turn signals. If you need a schematic, I have one but I cannot send it via this forum. This forum only allows for a 150Kb picture and the schematic is larger than that. I'll be glad to scan the schematic and send it to you if you'll contact me directly at [email protected] Remind me that you need a schematic for a 1986 Sporty.

Good Luck

Wire loose


The blue wire is the wire to supply voltage to your "running" lamp filament in the buld. Take your bulb out and look at the back side of it. It should have two round connectors on it. One is for the turn signal and one is for the running light. The "running light" should be on when you start the bike. When you turn the turn signal on on that side, the turn signsl filament should light up along with the running light filament.

With the bike running and headlight on, all four turn signals should lit as "running lights". Earlier models did not have the "running lights' on them. Now, when you turn the turn signals on either side the bulbs should blink much brighter. If you press and hold both the right and left turn signal switches, you're four way flasher signal should come on. If you still can't figure it out, Drop me a line at [email protected] and I will scan a wiring diagram in for you and send it to you. Good Luck Steve

Lights not working


not likely, the flasher relay doesnt control headlamp.Check ALL fuses,and ALL the bulbs .Make sure head lamp works if you give it power using seporate wires to test it,if it does and using high and low beam make no difference check headlamp ground wire.Cool?
