Default Breaker wiring

My new solid state regulator came in and wired it up, and still have no turns or stop light. Anyone having the breakers I’d like to know how they are wired up because between the battery side and negative there’s something wrong with wiring to those 3. They are new and previously all lights were working so it’s the wiring to them that is causing the issues I’m having. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you have a wiring diagram for your bike?
I saw your post of the regulator, what did you do exactly?

Yes I have the diagram but with the diagram it shows two harness connectors that not on the bike so wiring was ran to breakers then out to rear stop switch,(orange/red) etc..

Look at the 1986-90 wiring diagram for the Turn Signals here:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ring_-_general

That is the way HD wired most of the Ironhead models as well. It uses a simply TS thermal flasher before the signal goes thru the handlebar switches and out to the lights. The lights are grounded thru the frame at their mounting locations.

I have the wiring diagram but if I knew from it which side Of the breakers(BATT/AUX)the wires are suppose to connect I would be able to decider the issue and the correct pole to connect to. It is not specified which pole in the breakers these wires are supposed to connect. I hope I’m clear on that! Also in the diagram there are two 6 pin end plugs that do not exist now so the wiring has been diverted to the breakers directly! And as I mentioned previously that before changing out to new breakers everything was working perfectly so I know I’m off by a few wires in there placement. If someone can verify if BATT/AUX makes a difference I can fix the damn thing lol!

Still do not have 12V at coil, turn signals or stop light switch but I have 12V at all three breakers. So because there are no harness plug ends all the wiring is routed to the breakers then back out to switches. I have switch controls for turns and run/off switch so I’m wondering if the switches for turns and kill switch are bad even though new. They were working but now I get nothing. Is it “I” on the ign switch I can use Power the coil from switched on?!

The breakers have no polarity. One side (any side) is wired to the ignition switch and the other side to the circuitry, like lights and all.

although a bi-metal circuit breaker can work both ways does not mean it is correct. the proper flow is source>bi-metal>contact>load.
they usually have two color poles being the copper the source side.
there is a reason just like there are seasons.

Lol just as I suspected but hey we figured out the issue being a brand new universal ignition switch was the culprit! I found that if I wiggles it or side to side motion would give the system power to everything as it should, so my wiring was all good! Started a return and ordered another type 3 position switch.
