Speedometer & Passing Lights Flicker

Hi all,

I notice that when I accelerate or rev the engine on my 2005 Midnight Roadstar, the passing lights (OEM) and the speedometer light flicker/dim momentarily and then resume to proper illumination. The headlight is not impacted. The headlight maintains steady illumination. My guess is that there may be a loose wire or short somewhere. I am wondering if someone can lead me to where I can obtain the wiring diagram for the Roadstar.

Thank you.

I found an issue with my passing lamps as well, more than likely the wire in either the right or left lamp is in need of some attention.
