2003 Sportster tip over switch
« on: September 23, 2017, 10:12:15 AM »
Got home today to find a friends Sporty on my drive, he phoned to say it just cut out . I'm leaning towards the tip over switch, I'm told it can be shorted out or bypassed . There are three wires , two small and a thick black in the middle. Anyone know if you just join the two smaller wires ?

Problem is the ign module in the nose cone . This is bolted to the side of the battery tray, has a plug with three wires . Take it off and shake it, has a ball bearing in it .

Thanks for that , Iíll try and remember in case I ever need it. Finally got the module ( none in Europe ) last Saturday , only took an hour to change it .
