brown wire from airshock pump in false tank

Postby newomij » Sat Jan 09, 2016 8:41 pm



Sometime ago, a long time ago, I removed the air pump to completely remove the false tank. Having replaced everything, I looking at the brown wire and I can't remember where it goes. Does it hook to the hot lead on the fuse panel?

It will no doubt help i you tell what year and model your bike is.
Is there any particular item on your bike that will not currently operate correctly that could be attributed to the "brown wire"?

I have the wiring diagram for my 1983 pasted on my workshop wall.
If your bike has the same wiring diagram I may be of some help.
I cannot see any plain brown wires associated with the air pump.
Right now I think the brown wire in question may be the wire from the ignition switch to the fuse box.
Do you have a wiring diagram?

I do have a wiring diagram from Clymer but it doesn't show the air pump. The brown wire in question comes from the wiring harness for the air pump and after further examination, that wire seems to be the only possible source for electricity to get to the motor driving the pump. I'm hesitating putting it to the hot source for fear of burning up a part that will likely be very hard to replace. By the way, I ride an 1982 Aspencade.

MY genuine Honda manual includes a wiring diagram for a 1982 Aspencade which I have checked.
The two wires going to the air pump are a Green and a Light Green/Black
I have photocopied that section of the wiring diagram so check the attachment wh
ich you may need to get blown up
