The latest schematic I have is a 1999 model. On it, the Black wire is the Tail Light, the Red & Yellow wire is the Stop Light, and the Orange & White wire is the power wire. Hope this helps.

2004 Harley sportster, I was gone for three weeks and came back to start my bike but just heard a clicking. All the lights and blinkers are working properly, could it still be the battery? or is there...

yes, it could be the battery. Your turn signals don't take anymore than about 5 amps to run. To start your bike, it takes about 200 amps. Take your battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. This is usually free and it'll tell you the condition of your battery. Odds are, that's your problem.

Good Luck

Cant find the tach sensor on a 2000 1200 sportster

The tachometer is an electronic tach and gets it's "pulses" from the ignition coil. The older bikes had a pink wire that went to "negative" side of the coil. The negative side of the coil is the side the electronic sensor plate in the ignition cavity on the right side of the engine connects to.

I need a wiring diagram for a 2002 883 harley sportser

If you are going to install a new ignition unit, all you basically need to know is which wire is the "HOT" wire. Disconnect all the wires to the coil, turn the ignition switch on and use a test light to find the "power" wire. Once you know which wire this is, you'll need the wiring schematic for the particular type of ignition unit you're installing on your bike. Usually, if you got the website for the manufacturer, they'll have "installation instructions" under their "Technical" section. Usually, with a dual fire ignition system, there are only three wires to hook up. Good Luck!

The left rear running doesn't illuminate. the

If you have rear running lights, the bike has an accessory (Harley OR aftermarket) running light module. If the module wiring is connected securely, it's possible the module has failed. If this is the case= no fix except to replace the module.
