any1 rewired the whole bike???!!!!!

well my wiring harness is totally trashed so i need to know how to rewire the whole bike. i dont have 2 much bc i dont have turn signals, license plate light, on/off switch, no tach, no speedo, no horns, no temp gauge, and no gas gauge.

i just need to know how to make the engine run the simplest way.

Well I haven't had to rewire the vulcan but a few bikes ago I had to rewire my old honda due to mice. From experience, the best place to start is getting a good shematic and trace what may be left of the old wires and checking against the diagram. then repair/replace one wire at a time to avoid confusion. Start at the fuse panel and battery and work out. When you start to go crosseyed take a break, then return when sight returns to normal lol. Paperclips and masking tape work good to mark identified wires. Any problems shoot me a line... I'm not too far away from you and one of my strong points as a mechanic is wiring.

Piromedic had to rewire most of his bike about a year ago - not sure if he just got a wiring harness off of eBay or did it all on his own. But you may want to drop him a pm.

My self, Id vote for a new harness. Rather than physically rewire. It would be just a simpler task, but still alot of work. Good luck!

They sell very basic generic wiring harnesses for custom built choppers. You might try finding one of those. I can't recall where I saw them - and don't have time to do a search right now!
