Trunk and saddlebag lighting.

Postby florida_ump » Tue Jun 21, 2011 10:02 pm



Hello all. OK. I am a new 83 Aspy owner. The gentleman that the gentleman I bought the bike from had taken the trunk section off the bike. The problem is that when he removed the trunk, he CUT wires, instead of doing the practical thing and unplugging the connector under the seat. Fast forward to today. I have the tail/brake light and the turn signals working, but I haven't even attempted to hook up all of the marker lights that are available. I am curious where the extra lights even tie into, seeing as the connector I have only had 6 wires: brake, tail turn sig left and right power, and two grounds. H E L P!!!

If you go over to the DIY section find the post about taking the bags on/off...that should show where the wires are located...

The manual section also has a color schematic you can look at...

I am going to take a guess that these are all aftermarket lights, since the '83 GL1100 did not come from the factory with more than the Tail/Brake light assembely and the turn signals in each saddle bag.

Point...I apologize for the incorrect information.
