Re: Wiring Harness gone naked advice. ASAP

NO, what are you going to cut out??? Taking the fairing off doesn't eliminate anything except..depending on your GL radio, clock, altimeter, etc. all that is on the fairing harness which unplugs by itself..

Re: First Goldwing - 1981 GL1100

Re: Replacing coils on 83 goldwing
