Default OEM Part numbers

If anyone has a parts book for a 1973 XLH/XLCH and would like to get rid of it or know where I can get a cheap one, let me know.

OR

If someone has one and wouldn't mind finding A part number for me I would be most appreciative. If so, just PM me.

Thanks!

Well it's probably best you find a good part book but until then consider this post an invite to give you some part numbers.

Thanks. I plan on getting a book, but I want to get my bike running before winter hits.

I'm looking for a starter relay and I've seen a couple of different part numbers. I'm just trying to determine which one is correct. From what I've seen I think it might be 71455-67. Can you tell me if that is the right number?

27 was the other number I have seen as being for a '73. At least now I know the right number. Thanks!

Unless you are doing a full restoration a modern cube-type 30 amp relay is your best choice. Get one that has the wire harness in the same package. At any auto supply.

Install it under the seat with the wires hanging down - to keep water out of it.

Thanks everyone for the info/advise. I have my parts book now so if anyone needs an OEM number for a '54-'78 XLH or XLCH feel free to ask.
