1981 GL1100i aftermarket signals, 2 wires for a 3 ping plug????

Post by ApplecoreR6 » Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:51 pm



Hi there, second post today, but I purchased some turn signals for my 1981 Gl1100I, I wanted to go naked so I received these turn signals and they only have the two wires, in the description of the item it tells me that there are two wires, but neither are for daytime running. But my Goldwing has a 3 ping connector to the left and right turn signal. How in the world do I connect a 2 wire(green and black) to a 3 ping (green, orange/white, and a solid orange)

I tried to connect them, I connected the green and orange and left the center orange/white alone and got the light to activate but would not blink. My issue is the blinking, how do I get this to work?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

What you have in the picture is a rear flasher, they have only two wires for flasher. The front flasher have 3 wires, ground, parking and flasher. The one's you bought are only flashers no parking. If you want it to flash connect the green and orange/white.
