Default wiring diagram

I want to re-wire the bike to get rid of all the unnecessary crap, so, does anybody have or know a link/place where I can get a copy of the electrical/wiring diagram?

This a generic wiring diagram I attached to a thread some months ago. It is in the fourth post of this thread;

http://www.xlforum.net/vbportal/foru...d.php?t=230142

I checked and the thread is still active. I hope it gets you started.

Cheers;

Cool

If you have a look thru my earlier posts, you'll find one from a 88 which covers 86 - 90. All the same...

Sorry, there is only 91. Attached zip of 86 - 90...

They should be reasonably close to the same... Not sure. Maybe go to H-D dealership and ask if they might photocopy the wiring page for you...

There are many differences between a 1986 to 1990, a 1991 to 1995, a 1996 to 1997 wiring diagram and a 1998 to 2003 diagram. The fuses and ignition system are really different after 1998...

Here is the 1998 wiring diagrams :






and the 2003 wiring diagram :





Sorry for the poor quality of the scanned pics......

The 2003 diagram is exactly what I need.

I'm no electrical genius, so what is the purpose of so many damn connectors when they can be wired directly without the connectors??

For ease of assembly/disassembly and for component replacement/repair.
You also have to remember the assembly line.
When you rewire yours you might want to remember that too.
