    Default 92 sportster simple wiring

    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 and lights work but the thing isnít starting
    Any ideas? Thanks guys

    Go to the sporster section Help is right near the top. Frankly, hacking into a stock wiring system is not the way I would go. If possible, try to make your own. Regardless, help is in the sporty section: Its a good write up

    I’ve all but figured out these 3 wires, small black one coming from the same group as others coming off the starter relay, a green one (I think it’s the oil pump?) and a thick black wire coming from underneath (not sure if that’s the voltage regulator and where that should go to)

    Black wires are usually ground wires, oil pump does not have a wire since it's 100% mechanical. Post some pictures, your explanations aren't really helping us help you. Black wire from underneath, if it really is from the voltage regulator, goes to the main breaker.

    Use a meter or a test light and battery to continuity test unknown wires and you'll find where they go in a few minutes.

    Honestly ordering the sportster treatment wiring kit from ape_knuckles_harnesses is the best route, super easy install, only goes one way, no soldering, splicing or anything, pure plug and play, and for $200 bucks it’s probably close to to what you spend on tools, wiring connectors etc.

    I know it’s not great advice, but it something.

    I rewired a buddy's Sportster from the ground up, cost $140. All new wires, deutsch connectors, main breaker, and fuse box. Took like 8 hours total. The Ape Knuckles (or Gremlin wiring now?) harness is so simple and easy, wish I would have gone that route but my buddy wanted blinkers. Having hacked into the wiring a lot on my sporty to clean it up, I can say it was way easier to just build one from the ground up.

    sincerelyscott, holler at me if you need a wiring diagram, I have the PDF and can PM it to you if you need it. Green wire off the starter is the signal wire for the starter. Wire from the oil pump area I'm guessing is one of the stator wires. In black wires on the stock harness are all grounds, I'd guess you got something backwards in there. Post pics of what you're trying to ID.
