wiring harness

I have an 07 speedmaster dealer put in a new wiring harness but its not the same as the one they took out it has another safety device on it. With the kick stand down you can't rev it up its like you hit the rev limiter since then the charging system doesn't work. any Ideals

That's just odd. Something isn't right in your story, or your bike.

What occurred with your 07 bike to require a wiring harness? Did the shop discuss the particulars of this different harness with you and, as importantly, provide you with a corrected schematic for your bike? Your descriptions of the bike being unable to rev up with the kickstand down does not make operational sense; neither does any situation where the engine would be running with the charging system inoperative - either of theise by themselves indicate an error. I agree with Balto that the request for ideas requires better information.

That's wierd - I don't think that's a safety feature - I think that is the result of some problem. Maybe linked to the charging system not working. The charging system fault may be related to whatever caused the need for the wiring harness to be replaced - but I am at a loss as to what to suggest I'm afraid.

Well, everything seems to be in order then.

OK they replaced the harness because every time i turn on the right turn blinker the fuss would blow. Now they told me they found a bad spot in the harness where it Y off to the key switch. Then when I picked the bike up I started it and let it warm up for a few minutes then turn the throttle a little bit and it sounded like it was hitting the rev limiter they came out and sad thats goofy must be some new thing they came out with for 09. The part number was different but the old part number crossed over to the part number on the new harness.

Unless there was some sort of recall on the original harness, the dealer should have installed an identical one. There is no good reason for them to install a different (newer/older/modified) wiring harness on a fairly new bike, especially one where the correct parts can easily be ordered.
