    Hello everyone!

    My 2001 Roadstar caught fire and I decided to keep it and rebuild it again. My major hiccup going into this is the OEM wiring harness is discontinued. I decided to go aftermarket and re-wire the whole bike giving it a cleaner look. looking into this the ignition module would give me some problems as it has an aftermarket now and they don't have the specific one anymore and the only one I can find is this one https://www.denniskirk.com/dynatek/3...prd/200635.sku. I have not looked exactly how the old module is hooked up (if using the OEM plugs) but this Dynatek module will require OEM plugs. Should I search for an OEM wiring harness via eBay or other means or go the aftermarket wiring harness. Any advice and help much appreciated!

    Sounds like you've got a big task in front of you with either direction. For me personally, I'd lean towards getting a used harness. To me the benefits would be that you'll have OEM connectors and you can use a factory service manual for the schematics.

            Thank you all for the suggestions and help. I have decided to get an aftermarket harness. After buying a manual I have concluded the wires that burnt up are all accessories I can use the aftermarket to fix everything. Now taking my time cleaning and repairing everything.

            Have ran into a new problem though. I have aftermarket forks on this bike called looney has anyone heard or seen these anywhere? The handle bar bushings are completely different from what is stock. Hope to find new bushings. Posting pictures. As always thanks for the help all!

              That Looneys triple is Road Star gold for a raked front. Rare as hen’s teeth.

              I am feeling the effects of how rare they are. Haha I knew something was weird when I couldn't find anything on the net.
