Eagles Head Wiring on GL1200I

Postby timberwolf58 » Sat Sep 10, 2016 4:18 pm



Where should the wire run down by the fender? It was broken off and shorted, so I don't know whether it goes into the head on top of the fender or comes up from underneath. '87 GL1200I
Thanks,
Mike

Head ? i'm guessing this is some aftermarket thing? The stock front fender has no light, the interstate has no speed sensor, so I am left thinking you have an aftermarket light on your front fender, if so run it where you think it looks best. Sorry can't help more

Yup, it's aftermarket. So just run it where you think is best, and fasten it securely so that it can't rub against the wheel, steering, or anything else. Don't forget to consider the wheel turning, the steering turning, the suspension compressing and expanding, and a combination of all of the above.

Thanks guys. I think I'll run it on top of the fender, this way it can't get caught on the tire. Also has anybody tried "Slime" in their motorcycle tires, just in case of a puncture? If so, does it have any effect on the wobble that come up sometimes?

I would stay away from the slim or other stuff like that. It just makes a big mess on inside of wheel and all over your cloths when removing. :o just use plugs for tubeless tires. Replace tire when necessary. Ah just my .02

Yea it's awful crap. And a lot of shops won't fix a tire with slime type of stuff them.
