Aftermarket Wiring / Controller

Postby smshnick » Mon Sep 22, 2014 1:10 pm



I'd like to update the wiring on my GL1000 with something a bit more simple than the factory setup and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I've been looking at both the motogadget M-Controller as well as the Thunderheart Electronic Harness Controller, though I'm not sure if the Thunderheart works with Honda (their tech support isn't the greatest). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What do you mean update the wiring? Do you mean replace it?

I tend to avoid places with bad tech support but to each their own.

I looked at both of those, both look nice but sure are pricey,

Not even a exact fit so a lot of time and effort appears to be necessary.

Yes, I'd like to replace the antiquated factory wiring birds nest with something simpler and more efficient (no fuses, etc). The Thunderheart controller is at least made here whereas the Motogadget box is German made.. I just don't want to leave any stones unturned..

Germans make some pretty neat stuff tho.
