Damn motorcycles

Drives me nuts......Just got the "bagger" out of the shop. Had a new transmission installed. After 85,000
miles the tranny was toast. It ran really good....till a damn poltergiest got into the wiring somewhere.
Now, everytime I turn the handle bars all the way to the right....the damn motor dies and the lights go out.

Oh hell....all everyone says when I discuss the problem with them...."Don't make right turns..."
funny.......not........

So I have windshield, dash.....everything tore apart trying to find the gremlin.....and learn that the problem occurs when I plug the instrument panel back in and turn the bars right.....go figure....Don't need the tachometer, and gas gauge....fuggedaboutit.....the speedo is cable driven....and who needs dash lights at night on a motorcycle....or a neutral light for that matter....FN HARLEY....

yes....IT GETS BETTER......

The Superglide left my ass on the side of the road the other night. No fire to the plugs....wife comes out in the middle of night with truck and trailer to pick us up....

Replaced coil....no change....shit....this is gonna get expensive.....
Ordered new pickup/sensor and hope like hell it works....new ignition module cost more money than I wanna spend.....

Well.....the Sportster still runs.
