Looking for free online repair manual for 1976 harley ironhead sportster

I'm afraid that you're not going to be able to find the manual online for free. First off, for some reason the year models between 1974 and 1978 service manuals are very difficult to find. Secondly, Harley is very protective of their copyrighted materials. If someone post such a manual online, Harley turns their lawyers loose on them. They usually don't stay there long. If you just want a service manual, there are places that sell them. If you cannot find the one particular for your year model, just buy one that is closest that you can get. Ironheads didn't change that much after 1972.

Meanwhile, is there something in particular that I can help you with? Let me know.

Good Luck

1974 Harley Davidson SPORTSTER TURN SIGNAL WIRING diagram just the turn signal diagram please

I can help you with the wiring diagram but it will be the complete diagram. I have never seen just a turn signal only type wiring diagram. But, there's nothing to a '74 model Ironhead turn signal system.

All the wires for the system were gray but had these little "colored rubber bands" on the ends of the wires near the signal lights. The violet bands were for the left side and the brown bands were for the right side turn signals

Now, I cannot send the wiring diagram through this forum as it will not allow for an attachment. If you will contact me directly, I'll send you a wiring diagram as a jpeg attachment via e-mail. My address is [email protected].

Good luck

Need turn signal wiring diagram for 1982 harley ironhead sportster

Contact me directly and I'll try to scan you a copy of a wiring diagram for your 82 Ironhead. [email protected] The diagram I have is quite large and I'll have to send it to you in two .JPG format files. If that would be sufficient, let me know.
