    Hi Everyone!

    This is my first post on here, so first off greetings from across the pond!

    I'm an extreme newbie to Harleys, & Bikes in general.

    Recently i removed the turn signals from my 2006 XL883C, and the handlebar switches stopped working all except the Hi/Low, Run, & start.

    After i realized that they would not work without turn signals plugged in i put them back on, but still nothing! The turn signals are the originals & there is power going to them as when i set the alarm they flash.

    Thanks in advanced for any help!

    Welcome aboard!

    This maybe obvious, but, if they worked prior to you removing them, then you messed up something in the wiring and or fuses.
    I would check the wiring for chaffing or cuts etc., and check the fuses for any that are blown. Good luck!

    Welcome from So. Texas. As Gator508 stated, that's where I would start. Make sure the wire loom is in the dimple of the handle bar near the switches.
