Default 2001 Electrical wiring

I am currently rebuilding my 2001C from the ground up. I have done alot of work on the electrial in the past getting rid of blinkers and removing fender tail light and things like that. Though that experience I have learned one thing....HARLEY WIRING IS A CLUSTER !!!!! My question is does anyone know where I can find a bare bones electrical schematic or someone who can create one for a 2001C. By bare bones I mean just what I need to power headlight, battery, horn, starter things like that. No harnesess, blinkers and misc. wiring that Harley seems to put on their bikes. ANY help would be good help. Thanks in advance guys!

I doubt you'll find a bare bones wiring schematic. My recommendation would be to get your hands on a repair manual (H-D, Clymer, etc.), scan the diagram into your computer, and just use something like Paint to edit out the wires you don't want. Then print it, and there you are. That way you can ensure the accuracy of the diagram, you have the exact components you want, and nothing else (plus, if you keep the original scan, you can always go back and redo it if you decide you want to add other electrical components later).

I know it's probably not the answer you were looking for, but I'd be a little skeptical of taking any homemade wiring diagrams from strangers as gospel, and (I'm sure for legal reasons) no corporately published manual is going to eliminate things like turn signals from their diagrams.

That's just my 2¢.

I have an '03 HD manual. If you have a fax# I can make diagram copies and fax them.
PM me if you have a fax#.

This is the entire harness for a 2003 (2001 is identicle), but all of the
unecessary stuff is shaded out in green... When I drew this up the guy that
asked for it was not going to run the engine switch on the handle bar, thus the
note in the middle about tieing the gray and white/black wires together. If you
are going to have an engine switch then don't tie them put the switch between
them instead. The diagram still looks comples, but if you concentrate on the
stuff not shaded in green you'll see that there really isn't too much wiring left
over.

I was just looking at that more and you could also ditch the
starter relay if you went with a high amperage momentary
toggle switch or better yet one of the push button switches
that mount to the end of the solenoid (J&P has then for $40).

Gary, You rock man. Actually I was wanting to go with a push button or toggle switch. This is what I was looking for. Thanks for taking the time to scan that schematic. Nice to know there are brothers out there willing to help out!

No problem... just for clarification though, that diagram is not
a scan I drew it myself in Protel CAD, so it's not burdened by
factory copyrights.
