87S is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 1987 XLH 1100 Wiring

I have been having issues getting the wiring on my bike fixed properly and most of it is a jumbled mess, now some things like the dash lights and rear break light are going out and not working. Anyone know where I can find a simple to read, just the basics wiring diagram? Looking to completely rewire my motorcycle in the next few weeks.

Find your Owner's Manual, Wiring Diagram and Parts List here :

https://serviceinfo.harley-davidson....cle/lookupForm
Enter your VIN OR
Use the search - enter year and model

==================================

Do you have a Factory Service Manual with a Proper Full Schematic?

Are you trashing the original wiring & starting over?
Or - Trying to get the original wiring straightened out?

Are you rewiring all original devices & connections?
Or - just wiring a minimal engine operation with deleted devices?

The pre-1993 Sportsters used local grounds for almost all devices - therefore, most electrical issues are a matter of making sure the devices are well ground thru their own housings to the frame and that the frame is well grounded to the battery...
