Turn Signal Flasher wiring question

Postby Ten4321 » Sat Oct 08, 2011 9:41 pm



I'm putting together a GL1000 that I bought in pieces. How does the Turn Signal Flasher connect to the wiring harness? The Flasher only has two wire inputs but there are three wires coming from the wiring harness. Also, what do the two wires below the black box connect to. Its not the left side horn those wires are lower.

I don't know if people noticed but my original post included a picture that shows what I'm talking about. I need to know how to wire the Turn Signal Flasher because it has two inputs but there are three wires coming from the wiring harness. If someone with a 79 Gl1000 could please look at their bike and tell me how to wire it I would be greatly appreciated. I have a digital copy of a factory service manual and the resolution on the wiring diagram isn't good enough to see the color code for each wire.

Thanks

I do not have a '79, but looking at the service manual, it shows three wires;

Dark Green, Gray, and Green/White

I suspect you have a relay from a 1975-1977, as those were two wire relays and the 1978 and 1979 were three wire.

The colors on the turn signal relay buzzer are different as well, on your 1979 they are Red/Brown, Gray, and Green/White.

I have no idea of the two mystery wires, let us know the color code and I will see if I can figure it out.
