83 GL1100 clarion typeII intercome wiring harness

Postby bcibob670 » Fri Jul 29, 2011 8:25 am



Just got off the phone with sierra and they dont have it so I will ask ya'll. I am looking for the 6 plug adapter harness (or the wiring color code for it) for the the clarion type II intercom system that replaces the standard 8 plug harness. specifically, the white 4 wire plug that has power and ground but I don't know the other two wires connection or purpose or if they are spliced into the power/ground.

It was suggested by sierra that if there was a generous soul out there that has the intercom for my make model year radio that they might find time to take off their left front directional and look in the wiring there to find the 6 plug adapter harness and strip the black tape junction at the middle of the harness and find out what wire is connected to what under the splice.

Background: I have a fully functional am/fm radio / I bought all the components required for the am/fm /cb / intercom (w/o cassette). the ebay seller sent an eight plug harness not the required 6plug harnes.

I might be able to help you out, but I need a bit better description of what you're looking for, and where it is located.

The intercom harness wire adapter connects to the component terminal, voltage gauge, amplifier etc. it is usually located in a bundle of wires behind the left side directional inside the fairing housing and in front of the pocket and component terminal.

the wire bundle to look for has two square plugs with two terminals each on one side and four square plugs consisting of 3 plugs with two terminals each and one plug (white) with 4 terminals.

The two plugs side has one white (to the volt gauge) and one black (to the fairing wiring (threefuses bundled). The four plug side has white plug (2terminal) that plugs to the fairing wiring, black plug that plugs to the volt gauge and red that plugs to the the radio controller and finally another white but with 4 terminals that connects to the component terminal.

If you don't want to find the splices visually you could check all the plugs for continuity and find out which terminals are connected.

thanks for any help.
