The dealerships usually have them on computerized microfiche. The trick is getting one of the parts guys to pull yours up and print it off. What you get isn't much...I got an 8.5X11 sheet that I had to use a magnifying glass for when I built my 77.

When you took the fairing off, the wires to the headlight should of had a three-prong plastic plug on it, did you remove that?

If not, just wind the excess wire up into the headlight shell and snap the headlight rim and headlight back in the shell.

But if you went at the whole deal with a pair of wire cutters, good luck.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Your best bet is to find someone with a manual. The FXR shared manuals with the FLHTs back then. So, you can hit up folks for the same (or near) year Dresser manuals, too.

I don't remember if my 1988 manual had the Police bike in it, though.

no quick way to do it, I'd connect the headlight and turn signals, horn, HI/LOW beams etc then trace each wire out that's left and see if you need it. I did the same thing with my 1980 FLHP. It just take time to trace and eliminate everything extra.
