Hello again, Still have the problem with my 1993 sportster 1200 turn signals...I have a friend who owns a local Harley shop and after looking at my bike and hearing about turn signal problems he is convinced the turn signal relay is going bad and needs to be replaced... He said the part is about $80.00 and is pretty hard to get to and replace and a lot of stuff has to come off to get to it to replace it and then has to all be replaced... I can not afford to pay for a couple hours of labor so if anybody can tell me exactly where this relay is located and how to get to it or access it and what I have to remove to get to it to replace it I would really appreciate the help or input on this... if there is a shortcut to get to it and by any chance does anybody possibly know the actual part number so I might could check ebay or other sites to find the part... any help or info would be greatly appreciated.... 1993 sportster 1200 XLH... thanks again... Chris


Hey Chris,
you can probably find a used owners manual for your bike on ebay or craigs list. The only way you are going to fix this problem yourself is get the manual and follow the instructions in it. I don't know the words to explain how to fix your bike and don't have the knowledge. The manual does. The manual will give you step by step instructions on how to find and replace the part.
I bought my bikes manual 2 weeks after I bought it - because I wanted to add an alarm system with 1 mile radius pager system. At the time this wasn't available anywhere so I had to do it myself - the manual told me the color of the wires I needed - showed me by illustration and photos what stuff looked like.
Get the manual - let us all know how it works out.


You can have it cheap.
You can have it fast.
You can have high quality.
PICK ANY 2....

They work most of the time... but at any given time they will stop working completely (even dry weather)... then 10 minutes later they might start working again... sometimes only the FRONT or the REAR will light up but not blink...(this turned out to be blown bulb) I can replace the bulb and they will start blinking again...

Cluld be anything. Bad bulb. Corroded connection. Start small go big when checking off possibilities


To expect to be perfect is unreasonable, to strive for perfection is reasonable.
