GL1200A - Electrical

Postby scmoon » Sat Jun 14, 2014 4:15 pm



I was rewiring my trailer plug and checking my 5 wires on my hitch harness receptacle and obviously blew a fuse as everything went out. I replaced my 10 amp ignition fuse in the box inside the fake tank and everything came back on except the following...

Radio / cassette player (1085 original) - it was not on at the time...although the clock is running fine....as well as my 4-way flashers even though my turn signals are working.

Is there any set of fuses somewhere I should be looking at?

Appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

The 20 amp fuse inside the left fairing compartment was blown...both radio/cassette and 4-way flashers are again operational.

Thanks for your guidance, Hal.....much appreciated!

You might want to look into wiring a trailer isolator into your bike, to prevent this sort of thing from happening in the future. That way, a short or wiring fault in your trailer wiring or trailer connector won't take out the electrical system on your bike: it will just blow the one fuse in the isolator.
