Wiring HELP Please

Postby nickhuff » Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:15 pm



I recently acquired a 1983 Goldwing Aspencade in need of some repairs. I am in the process of attempting to figure out the wiring. I found this group of wires coming out of what appears to be the block and have no idea where they are to go or even what they are for. The picture is of what i have hanging out. They were like this when i got it. I am not a motorcycle mechanic nor do I play one on TV so im just trying to get this baby running again and any help figuring out where they go would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Nick, looks like the wires that should be going to your instruments, they tell the digital dash what gear you're in I think. Not 100% sure as mine is a 1980 and I don't have fancy modern stuff like that:). Are they coming from a round plug looking thing in the block, just behind an engine mount?

That's definitely what it is. The gear position switch is in the block, and those wires go up to the digital dash so that it can display what gear you're in, and light the neutral light when you're in neutral.
