Question 82 Sportster. First rebuild. Limited mechanical knowledge.

Hey guys. First timer here. Bought my uncle's 82 XLH1000 Anniversary Edition after it sat in a shed for 23 years. Alot of blood, sweat, tears, dollars, and time, we got her running. New clutch, primary cover, battery, generator rebuild, she was moving. End of summer comes, I got some miles on her, learned her personality if you will. Now I'm stripping her down to completely clean everything, paint, install brand new gaskets from front to back, and completely rewire. Here's where I need help. Am looking for a simplified wiring diagram. Im chopping it up a bit and am looking for that old school skinny look. Any wiring diagram would be great but the simpler the better. Have the Haynes manual but that only goes so far. Thanks!

Welcome from France!

It's yours to do what you want, but there can't be that many that year/model around.
Sacrilege to me!

Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum from Iowa!

What all are you planning to chop off? There's really not too much other than the turn signals (front and back) that you can get rid of, wiring-wise. You'll still need the starting circuits, the ignition circuits, and the headlight and taillight/brake light circuits. The '82 came with factory electronic ignition. If somebody's replaced that with points, maybe that will simplify the wiring a little bit, but not much.

I suppose you could get rid of the "genny" light and the "oil" light, but I kept both of those on my bare-bones '69 short chop when I wired it up from scratch. I think it's wise to keep both of those, but again, it's your bike.

I'm not familiar with the Haynes manuals, but the official Factory Service Manual (FSM) has complete wiring diagrams in them.

Good luck in getting your bike the way you want it to be!
