    It shouldn't have one. Aren't they all fuel injected in 2007? Or is the 883 a carbie.

    Just for added Knowledge, ALL Harleys were FYI in 07 and up.. I got the last year of a Carb on my 06 1200 sport Roadster.:newsmile011:

    I knew that ALL 07's were going to fuel-injection but I wanted the OLD carb..... Now, after seeing How NICE FYI is,,,,,,,,,:newsmile08:

    Thanks Bubbie. That is good to know. I thought maybe the 883 was an exception.

    Yes, the module in front is the voltage regulator.
    The Ignition module is part of the main ECM. So the bike does crank, you have no spark but you DO have fuel. (plugs are wet).

    Don't know of any sensor actually mounted in rear head. There are some sensors NEAR the rear head mounted in the induction module (see attachment).
    Is it one of these?

    See if you have battery voltage on the yellow/green wire on the ignition coil while cranking.

    I would also run a WOW test (see attachment) to see if there are any DTC codes stored.

    That sensor sounds like the engine temp, but they are usually on the Front cylinder not the rear. If it is screwed into the cylinder (not head) and it is 2 wire, it just may be the engine temp sensor even though it's in the rear. (?)

    The heat sensor on that sportster is in the rear jug and it's in the top.
    It's not the front jug or in the backside of the head like the Dyna's.

    Sure as heck is. Interesting..That is really a better place for it.
    I went through the entire service manual and could not find the location of that sensor. Using the parts manual never came to mind...
