Default 07 relays

I need to replace the relays in my 07 883C one of them is broken open, probably from when the battery cover tried to fly off. Any cheap auto parts numbers out there for replacement? I drive past a dozen auto parts stores on my way home from work, my Harley dealer is a 50 mile round trip and I can't get there during the week. It is not so much a money thing as it is a convenience thing. Thanks in advance

Someone has the cross-over numbers for the relays in their signature. I don't have them handy, but I'm sure someone will post the info for you.

Here you go.

The water-logged OEM starter/system relay on 2007-2009 Sportsters is a OMRON G8H-UA-007401, but this can be crossed over to some automotive apps: Borg Warner R3154, Gp Sorenson 41-5154, Niehoff RL 35381 are examples. (snagged from DG Sportster's signature)

Clean the relay bases and coat them with dielectric grease.

Well I think one of mine needs a little more than that. I am old and easily confused. I have read that both relays are the same. This is what I found in mine. I have read here that a 07 will use a BWD R134 from Auto Zone for 6.99. My local Auto zone can't find it. Any suggestions? Are they both the same?
The cheapest one I have found is $10 AND THEY ONLY HAVE ONE IN STOCK.

Both relays are the same, as a matter of fact you can try to troubleshoot by switching the relays and seeing if the problem moves.

It's a pretty common relay in automotive apps, so there are probably plenty of other brands as well...

Thanks. Someone must have replaced one of mine with something else, the one on the left is different, than the one on the right.

The one on the right matches the stock part number and seems to have a resistor shown in the diagram, the one on the left seems to operate the same but does not have the resistor. I am not sure what happened to it, I bought the bike used and that is the condition that I found it.

Default Relay FI Sportster FYI

I had a bad relay. It had become damaged the top was broken off and would stick "on" causing the fuel pump to run when it shouldn't. After much research and trying to buy the relays already listed here as a replacement, I had no luck. My local Auto parts stores didn't have them at an economical price. I found a Toyota/Lexus relay for under $7 on Amazon with free shipping due to my prime membership. I had a hard time looking up the pin print outs but they seemed to match my old one. I bought 2 of them delivered to my door for less than $14. They came in a Beck/Arnley box with no pin out information. Bare Bones. It is Relay 12V 90987-02012 156700-0870. I replaced my damaged relay with this one and all my error codes went away and my bike runs perfect. The way it was acting I thought I had a fuel pump pressure problem and I bought the kit to fix it but did not yet install it. The relay seems to have fixed it. This relay is very well sealed and seems to weigh just a tad more than the origional. Thanks to all who have helped me with information. The number on top of the Beck/Arnley box is 203-0133. I hope this is helpful to someone. I am old school, points/condenser and dwell angle kind of guy but I try to learn.

Oh and I just returned from a little 20 mile ride on my 07 883C. I love that bike.
