    Default 1992 Sportster 883 WIRING KEEP IT SIMPLE ST00P!D

    Hey guys so Iíve tried sifting through a few forums to find details on exactly what I need and I think Iím 90% there
    Been using the mutant wiring diagram as reference as well as some youtube videos (party on forever and lnspltbvld)
    I have a momentary key switch with 5 connectors, eliminated the handlebar controls (duh its a chopper), and replaced the front and rear lights and running only 2 breakers
    Keeping it super simplified no turn signals, no speedo, no nothiní
    Iíve got everything wired to what I guess is correct, I tried to not cut into the wiring thats coming up from the starter, and Iíve got some noise coming when the switch it cranked but no lights and the thing isnít starting
    Any ideas? Thanks guys

    Study and fully understand starter and ignition theory of operation, then verify with a meter or test light that power is applied where it should be at each switch position.

    BTW if you don't already have a pushbutton starter solenoid end cover get one. They're cheap and bypass all external starter controls. Inspect solenoid contacts (cheap to replace) when swapping covers.

    I’ve got some noise coming when the switch it cranked but no lights and the thing isn’t starting
    From what specific "switch"? Switches should not make noise. Always post with maximum clarity. You can connect one system at a time to your key switch to isolate problems. Do you have spark?
