I have a 98 road glide and I just lost the running lights in the rear. the turn signals still work but the running lights don't. is this a bulb issue? I checked the fuses and no wire brakes that I can see.
Pull a bulb and see how many elements it has. If it looks like the bulb below... it's turn signal only, and no running lights. The part number is 68572-64b. In a pinch, you can use an automotive 1156. But since your turn signals work, it's not necessary.
Then it's not a stock setup if you had running lights. The part number of the bulb I gave in my previous post is the OEM part number for your rear turn signal bulb. And it should only have one element.
Turn signal bulbs are 1156.
Running light/brake light bulb is a 1157.
On your 98 the brake lights should only work in the tail light on the fender and you should have no running lights in the turn signals, that is the OEM setup.
There is a exception to this and that is if the previous owner put in the run/turn/stop module which turns the stock turn signals into running and brake lights as well as turn signals.
Even if you have the run/turn/brake module in the bike the turn signals bulb will be the 1156 bulb and it is not interchangeable with the 1157 bulb.
If your bike has the run/turn brake module and the running lights do not work it would be a good place to start looking. Remove the module and plug in the rear light harness without the module and see if the tail light has a running light if it does then the module is bad and the module should be eliminated or replaced.
If there is still no running lights check the wire harness under the fender it may have sagged down and rubbed on the tire breaking the wires. Then check the ground wires and your positive wire with a multimeter for power.
Ironmark hit the nail on the head. If you have a Run Turn Brake module it will be a small black box under the seat set up inline with the rear light connector.
Make sure you take the time to let the bike warm up before getting on it hard. The base gaskets will tend to start leaking. That is a bit of a project to do, and the replacement gaskets should last the life of the bike. Other than that keep it lubricated. The Evolution motor is a great motor, and damn near bulletproof.
This one has me stumped. 2005 Harley Road Glide, with hydraulic actuated clutch. Start the bike cold, ride out, no problems. 20-30 minutes later, roll on the throttle and rpms climb, like the clutch lever is being pulled in. Gets to the point where anything over idle just revs the engine, no...
My 2018 CVO RG radio presets are mixed up, on any screen there are Sirius, AM, FM and even WB stations showing??
HD came back with "probably" due to the CB radio I had installed which was not when the issue started. I had been told not to install the CB for no particular reason?? ...
Not really sure how to describe it, other than it sort of sounds like a belt on a car engine. I hear it once it warms up and it's only when the bike is moving. It starts once I begin to engage the clutch and continues after I have engaged the clutch completely. I'm not sure if it continues...
I had some bad sticking pistons on all 3 calipers on my bike, so I bought the Cycle Pro seal kit from J&P and rebuilt my calipers. It was very straightforward and an easy process, except for the bleeding. I started out with a vacuum pump to pull fluid through and fill the calipers and then I was...
