I picked up a 1999 mostly rebuilt sporty 883c custom that had some aftermarket stuff done, I have been weeding though some issues.
I have fixed most of them, but I wanted to get some knowledge before cutting into the taillight wiring...

The bike has the two bullet style lights on the side. They light and work for running lights and brake lights, but not turn signals.
As far as I can see the new lights have a couple wires going to brown blue and violet tucked above the tire. I cannot find a wiring schematic
online that matches what I am seeing, then he has black and orange/white going to the license plate light.
Can I just take the right or left blinker and splice it to the brake wire going to each lights positive and leave the ground as is.
has anyone dealt with this issue??

You can get the wire diagram here:

If you splice the brake and signal wire together... How do you expect it to blink?
Thanks 1/2 Ton, all the googling I did, I didnt go straight to harley.
I guess I cant splice it, in my mind it was LED so there was a module causing it to blink, I guess it wasn't always LED and they arnt going to blink.
Is there an aftermarket inline module that could make them blink?

This doesn't make them blink rather, it slows the blinking down so you can see it blink:
It's called a "Load Equalizer" It's plug n play from Custom Dynamics. There are different variations but, I have had fantastic results with CD's products and i know many others here on the forum have all had positive results with them. And they stand behind their products! I run CD front signals on my Ultra and plan on switching out all the incondessents to CD LED's on the Sporty.

Go to this website and fill in the info requested for your bike. You won't be disappointed. I am not in anyway affiliated with them just, a happy customer.


Edit: That HD SIP is not a easy to find webpage! That one i only found from being on this forum and others sharing it with us!
