    I have an '85 Softail I replaced the tranny in. I got in a hurry and did not label the wires when I took it apart. I've looked at several wiring diagrams and get lost QUICK! I am hoping someone can tell me what connects to what, Thanks!

    SOLENOID

    RELAY

    STARTER

    Thanks Jack, but like I said, I've looked at diagrams and for me they don't help. What I need is something like this:

    Negative battery to ground
    Positive battery to ...
    Long post on solenoid to ...
    Starter to ...

    I get looking at all that (edit) in a schematic and get looking at the bike and forget it. I guess I should have mentioned the idiot I bought the bike from had the whole (EDIT)
    bike (EDIT)
    up, wires clipped out of the bars for the turn signals, emergency stop, brakes, etc. put the clutch hub in without the key in right and broke it, oil lines run wrong, ... And all that was wrong with it when I bought it - it needed a new battery :bigsmiley31:

    Please read this...

    LOL the word C-R-A-P is against the rules here?

    Let's see, this word is heard daily on the Disney TV channel
    There is a Brand of sunglasses that goes by this name

    As there is no one here any smarter than myself at solving this problem, several of which cannot even read, I don't think I'll be back!

    Always, too bad some cant behave especially when we are trying to help, That kind of frustrates me
