My latest little annoyance with vendor parts has to do with wiring harnesses. Working on a '52 Chief and bought a harness from Greers that was cataloged as model specific for the 52/53 models. I was disappointed. There was a red wire, a bluish gray wire, a black wire with red tracer marks and all the other wires were black. I traced all of the wires using my multi wire and put the harness on the bike. After I hooked up the two wires to the voltage regulator, I found that the red wire to the battery was way too short. Greers told me that the black wire with the red slash marks was for the horn, but one end came out about where the carb sits. I got out the harness I purchased years ago from Indian Supply and things were better. Green wire and a black wire with red tracer marks to the voltage reg, red battery wire was long enough to actually reach the battery and there was a black wire with red tracer marks that was tied to the battery (goes to stop light switch). No horn wire, which was not a big deal, as the harness was for '48 and later models, not specific to a '52. The main fault with this harness was that the eyelet terminals for the ignition switch were sized for a 10-32 screw, not a 6-32. This is the harness I will use after I change the eyelet terminals. Given the amount of time I spent sorting all of this out, I would have been just as well off starting from scratch and making my own harness as I went along.
