1980 Indian Chief wiring diagram?

Ben Elsewhere /

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1980 Indian?

I just pulled the motor tranny assembly, because I thought it had seized. It hadn't (thank god!) and now that I have it pulled I see that it has a bundle of 3 wires coming out from the top. Ground, spark and accessory juice? That's my best guess. However, I would love a full diagram of the whole system so that I can rewire everything.

Also, are there any Massholes out there? I'm curious if I legally need turn signals, or if hand signals will satisfy John Law.

Thanks a lot!

hey dude, I'm not a masshole but I live in CT and I have an Indian as well. I think we're the same age. Anyways, do you have or know where I can get parts for one of these bad boys? My moped is flawless except for one cracked part. I don't have a wiring diagram but I'm getting a repair manual soon and if there is any info ill copy it for you.

Here is what your looking for(first message). This is out of the OEM Dealer service manual. I would like to post the whole manual and every thing I have on indian mopeds that I have. I already have this whole manual scaned in and on my computer. Tell me what you think.

Send it over to Moped Rider site to add to the repair list over there. Contact Pedman.

Hell yeah! Got the Indian running! There were in fact 2 problems:

Busted spark plug boot

Worn out points

Replaced the points, and jammed the plug into the end of the spark plug wire until I can get to the store to buy a new boot.

Also, FYI, the Indian mopeds will run fine with a burnt out taillight or headlight... I discovered that today.

Thanks to Ben Armstrong for the wiring diagram!

Ben, if you have the 1980 OEM manual scanned and on your computer, have you given any thought to loading these files as PDFs onto a thumb drive and offering them for sale? I for one would be interested.
