Harley Davidson Lands Phones - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I just had the same thing. The brake light actuarer in inside the brake lever on the bars. If the lever is worn, the actuator moves aside and the brake light stays on. Remove the brake lever and push the little black switch. If the brake light goes out replace the lever and actuator.

Its not a complcated procedure. You'll need to open your primary. You install the jackshaft into the starter after its mounted. Make sure you put plenty of ani seize into the bushing on the outer primary and watch out not to over torue the jackshaft bolt - the spec is 5 lbs.

heres a couple of links that will give you more info. One is for a spyke starter install, but all starters install the same. The other is for a belt drive install which talks some about the starter

I have a 1980's somthing 883 with a fucked up hand built wiring harness and for some strange reason when I hit the starter it just clicks. So I moved the relays and got shocked. Whats my problem???

Check all of the connections. The frame of the bike is the negative. I would think there is a short somewhere, either inside one of the lamp housings or the wiring harness has chafed and is touching the frame. You will have to check each wire. Check also inside the fuse housing. There may be a wire off or shorting in there.

Big tip 'o' the hat to harleyds96 for giving me the impetus to get after it and tear the lamp down and sort it out. You'll need a precision Phillips #1 screw driver to remove the 8 screws. You'll have to pry the 4 little rubber pads off that double as screw hiders
Once you've carefully separated the bottom plate from the rest of the pedestal, you'll see that you need an extra set of hands to hold the plate, amber glow ring, and the main lamp body with, while you fight with the little fuse box in the center of the lamp.
They all have to be held, because the speaker wire runs through the amber ring to the bottom pad, and can't be unplugged, 'cuz it's soldered. No spade connectors, nah, that'd be too easy - and complicated. They'd like to make it so much easier to toss out another $80 for a replacement, 'cuz you stupidly lost the receipt!
So now that you've got everything separated, you discover that there's another two screws holding the ends of the fuse box to the main body of the lamp. Yes, they must be taken out too, so's you can properly fight with the four little clasps holding the fuse box together!
If you can get it popped open without ripping wires from their solder connection, you're a neurosurgeon! I lucked out, 'cuz I did the operation whilst sitting at the computer desk, so the bottom two pieces could rest on it, without ripping the speaker wires off of the speaker, while at the same time, the main body of the lamp was resting in my lap.
Now that you've succeeded in getting the box open, you'll see that you have that little fuse there, that the Harley lady mentioned above found. It's stamped - 1A/250 V, which, I suppose, would mean it could be plugged in down undah, where they use 240 volts.
So I'm going to see if I can find a 2A/250V fuse somewhere, and if that's too hot for it - TOUGH! I'll have a Harley Davidson plastic patty melt! vonster.vaughn

I would need some more description of the sound and like where it is coming from.

D08 means over-voltage. You bike is over charging and will cook your battery. You regulator will have to be checked as well as your stator. If you have to drive to a dealership, keep your revs down as low as possible, at least not above 2000 revs. Do not drive more than a few miles or battery may get damaged. The letters simply mean set. So you have D08SEt which means D08 set.

Best to use Harley plugs

If the plugs require cleaning between tune-ups, proceed by degreasing the firing end of spark plug using ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER and then dry plug with compressed air. THEN using a thin file flatten the spark plug electrodes because a spark plug with sharp edges on its electrodes requires 25-40% less firing voltage than one with rounded edges. If the plugs cannot be cleaned, replace with them with 6R12 spark plugs. Check the electrode gap with a wire-type feeler gauge and bend the outside of the electrode so only a slight drag on the gauge is felt when passing it between the electrodes. Proper gap measurement is 0.038-0.043 in. (0.97-1.09 mm). Check the condition of the cylinder head and plug threads and if necessary remove deposits by applying penetrating oil and clean them out with a thread chaser. Apply a good sensor safe ANTI-SEIZE to the plugs and then install and tighten them to 12-18 ft-lbs (16.3-24.4 Nm).
