    I've four wires going to the solenoid.... a top the outer primary type .. so the big red goes to battery.. green small post..big black to starter... but the fourth is within the same wiring harness. has the green... and it links to the 30 amp breaker on rear fender... ( replaced that with a 40 amp .. takes a week to get a 30 amp ) ...processing a running starter issue.... all parts are new.. battery ( fully charged new...>>> solenoid, relay, starter, and battery ( + ) cable, all breakers...checked all wires... but.... i'm wounder about rehook up lost my mental notes...)

    breaker on rear fender...

    So the 2 tan mid size wires go to the so called 30 amp breaker along with the voltage regulator wire... (+) ... cause this breaker has two post one that is shine-ing and says bat on post... thought that the tan and regulator go there..... ... Confussed... well the 2 tan and regulator are on the other breaker post (that doesn't have a shine,stating bat on it )thats the way i remembered it.... then the small black wire.from this breaker..>>>.runs to the solenoid from this 30 amp breaker) that wire should go to the solenoid and big black >>> which goes to the starter... the red wire goes battery 2 top post....( on solenoid) green wire small post..{ big black bottom solenoid post 2 starter with the mid black wire} there's 4 wires (Right ?? and does running a 40amp er hurt just for awhile??? I realize some just have 3 ........

    In looking at a wiring diagram for '88FXR,FLHT,you should only have 4 wires on the solenoid.1 large blk. to battery + post with 1 more blk. to the copper colored stud of the main breaker. 1 wire,tan, to terminal 87 of the starter relay.
    1 wire,black, to the starter motor. In the manual it denotes the LONG Stud on solenoid is for the + Battery cable & black wire to the main breaker. I didn't have a manual for the FLST, but they should be the same. I dn't know how to download a pic here but I could e-mail you one if you PM me with your e-mail address. hope this helps.
