    I can't believe no old timers or harley techs knows the answer to my problem about how to hook up the ignition module and coil into the wiring system with a push button starter.?

    I myself was amazed how many changes are made from year to year and model to model with HD Scooters. Unless I had an original wiring diagram for your exact model and year, I would not know where to begin. I like others could tell you what you need to know but without a schematic it would only be a guess and worse case could possibly give you wrong info which would lead to letting the smoke out of a good component. I am sure that is not what you want.

    On a stock 1980 FLH

    To Coil
    Battery through circuit breaker, to Igniton Key switch, to ignition relay, to kill switch, to plus side of coil.

    Basics Needed;

    With no kill switch, no circuit breaker, no fuse, ect. You could run directly from the battery through on/off switch to + side of coil.

    Not responsible for fires, burnt harness, etc.

    Both plus and minus side of the coil go to the stock Electronic Module. Guessing aftermarket would be similiar.

    Push Button starter. Your talking on the handle bars right? You did say the starter was wire directly to the battery, but I am guessing there is a starter soliniod in the picture somewhere. If not you will need one.

    12 volt HEAVY wire from the + side of the battery to starter soliniod. Another HEAVY wire from other large terminal on starter soliniod to starter.
    (Not responsible for fire, wrong gauge of wire here will make one )

    Then if your bypassing relays and everthing else. You will need a momentary switch that send 12 volts to the small terminal on the starter soliniod. (This will activate the soliniod and connect the two large wires(Battery to Starter).

    You could pick this 12 volts up from the same switch used for the coil. But you still need the momentary switch to turn the starter.

    I would consider fuse or circuit breakers.
