For the 12V system regarding the internal combustion engine; if we leave the stock fuse and wiring harness untouched, can we assume that it has the proper wiring and fusing?

Do we need to tear apart the stock wring harness and make sure that all the wire in it comply with FH rules?

If you utilize the stock wiring harness for your engine, in the manner in which it was designed to be used it should be OK. (I assume you are talking about ignition/ecu, and battery charging.)

You should still check the fuses against the original schematic, since they could have been replaced with incorrect parts by a previous owner.

If you use portions of the harness to conduct current to or from components that were not part of the original (motorcycle?) design, there could be a problem.

Also, if you find yourself removing portions of the harness that are not relevant to your vehicle, then you are moving into uncharted territory. In this case you would be well advised to open up the harness and "take ownership" of it by creating your own schematic and assuring compliance with FH 4.4.1 and 4.4.2.
