Hey everyone, I have a problem, and I hope that perhaps someone may have some insight as to what I need to do here. I recently swapped my evo motor for a 88ci motor from a 05 fatboy. The engine was originally fuel injected but I am converting it to carburetion. The bike is all together and now I am needing to set up the electrical. I talked to dynatek and explained my setup to them and they figured out which ignition and coils I need. Now I am trying to have a harness made for just the ignition, but everyone I talk to seems to thing my new motor should be using a 12 pin connector. It doesn't. It has a 6 pin connector. What am I missing here?

Thanks, and I really appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Ignition issues on a evo to twincam conversion.

Accidentally deleted this all the last time I posted. Lol.

Ok so in recently swapped my evo motor for a 88ci twincam motor from an 05 fatboy. The new motor was originally fuel injected but I am switching it to a carbureted setup. I spoke with the folks at dynatek and explained what I had and they pieced together what I need for an ignition and coils. Now I am trying to get a harness made to run just the ignition components. The problem is everyone I talk to seems to think that my new twincam should be using a 12 pin connector for the ignition. It doesn't. It has a 6 pin connector. What am I missing here?

Thanks, and any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well first of all you're changing the ignition from dual fire to single fire which means more wires to make it work. The 6 pin connector won't accommodate the amount of wires needed for the single fire ignition system.
I suggest buying yourself a '99 - '00 Fatboy electrical service manual. You can follow the wiring schematics and trouble shooting flow charts to get your wiring harness assembled. OR just buy a '99 Softail wiring harness and splice it in. The manual is your friend !
