1992 gl1500SE foot heater cables

Postby rmet » Mon Dec 12, 2011 1:09 am



Ok I searched the forum and found nothing about foot heater cable routing on the 1992 gl1500SE - does anyone have pictures or a drawing that shows the proper routing of these cables - previous owner cut everything out.

I found very little information about this. The service manual only shows the left side coming out at the bottom. The parts manual shows the basic routing position, but doesn't give any information on where the cable goes relative to anything else.

Thanks for the pics and reply - it's a lot more than I had before. Now if wingstuff/cyclegiant would only send a good part instead of the one I got from them that fell apart when I opened the package, I would try to put it back together again.

Update: Wingstuff made good on the cable and sent a RMA# -- as luck would have it I was able to make a small tool and put the assembly back together properly about 20 minutes before I recieved wingstuff's reply. Cudus to wingstuff!! [/u]Now if anyone has a sketch or pic of the routing of this cable I can put this machine back together as the rest of my parts have now come in.

Thanks Bill , it sure would help me out of a tight spot - I need to get this trike back together as soon as I can, I'm getting company in and I know they will want to ride - am trying not to dissappoint anyone.

I know it's a little while since you asked this question, but I just know have my bike apart and identified these cables - I remember you asked about them, so I took some pictures to help you out. I'll start from the bottom and work upward. Keep in mind that my bike is more apart than you'll see because I'm in the process of doing my timing belts. The cables go directly in front of the timing belt cover, so just pretend that you see the timing belt cover instead of the timing belts and sprockets. Click any of the pictures for enlarged versions.

The right side cable comes from a metal 90 degree bend and goes toward the center of the bike, in front of the timing belt cover.

From there, it bends almost 180 degrees to point up to the upper right.

The left side cable also comes from an identical 90 degree bend, going toward the center of the bike.

Here I am pointing out the routing of the left side cable, where it joins alongside the right side cable.

The cables go behind this frame member, and wrap around to the side as shown.

Here the cables join together before going up into the fairing.

Hopefully this is of some help to you!

WOW -- What a set of pics , thank you so much. I will tear it back down and do it right this time. I have to pull it apart again anyway to see what is going on with the aux. air pressrue switch, the rest of the switches work -- ie. pick up the relay but the aux. air hose which is now in the top trunk won't put out so it's tear apart time again!! I guess when you buy an older bike it's gonna be like this until a lot of things get replaced. Again thank you very much for all the help from yourself and all the other members.

Thanks Bill , I was able to get everything set up from the above photos. I quickly figured out about putting the 'L' shaped end all the way into the lower cover so I had enough room to adjust in the middle of the cable. Other than that it went real smooth thanks to all the help I got here.
