Not stupid...only because you asked!

Welcome...I'm gonna watch this one myself....I have an '02 as well.....

There are guys here who know how to confirm this better than I, but I have to believe it will....

As for instructions...do you own a manual?

The 32632-96 is an 8-pin module. I'm pretty sure your bike uses a nose cone module, they switched to nose cone modules in '98. If I'm right, installing it would require using a standard pick-up unit, finding a place to mount the module, and a bunch of rewiring. Personally I wouldn't mess with it, but it can be done.

Do you mean the diff. between the ignition modules that have both black and white connectors (mounted on the frame) and those in the gearcase with wire attached??

By doing a search for 32632-96 http://www.surdyke.com site, it says that it fits '96-'97 XL 883 models. According to H-D's site - 32979-98A fits '98-'03 XL 883 models, and lists for $119.95.

An 8-pin module looks like this:



They typically mount under the seat.

Some of these modules will have an extra couple wires that don't go through the 8-pin Deutsch connector. If the module supports single fire (this one doesn't), it needs more wires because it has to provide a separate primary signal for the other coil as well as a tach signal (since each primary outputs are each running at half frequency in a single fire arrangement).

A nose cone module looks like this:



These things integrate the ignition module and the pickup unit into one handy package that goes in the nose cone of the gearcase.

HD went to nose cone modules in Sportsters beginning in '98. Retrofitting an 8-pin module, or it's predecessor the 7-pin module, is doable but a hassle. Gotta put in an old style pickup unit and wire in an 8-pin connector and figure out how to mount the thing.

The color codes on the wires are pretty standard, though. From memory, 8 pin modules look like this:

red, green, & black go to the pickup unit
pink is the primary signal (to one side of the coil)
white is the power (generally leads to the other side of the coil, where a wire from the handlebar switch meets it and provides power).
purple is the VOES switch input (grounded = high vacuum)
and there's a ground in there somewhere.
Only 7 pins of the 8-pin connector are used.

Wouldn't be surprised if the factory nose cone modules have similar color codes.

In '04 of course they eliminated the nose cone module and went to the TC88 style module that works off a crank trigger.

So am I right in thinking the my 2003xlh 1200 has a "SINGLE FIRE" module in the nose cone. And if i want to replace it, then I would get a single fire module?

thanks...Tom

No... '03's are still Dual Fire, nosecone or not. If you do get a Single Fire Module you have get Single Fire Coils as well.

I had to ask the same thing 2 weeks ago outlaw, and now I have two ignition modules. The exact Dyna in the pic and a screaming Eagle selectable for the nose cone. I hope you asked before you baught instead of having to buy two of them like I did.
Oops, I just read the rest of your post, guess we are in the same boat. I baught both of mine off ebay so I have two for the price of one pretty much.
