Wiring Help

Postby gypsysmokey » Sun Jan 11, 2015 9:18 pm



Hello, maybe someone can help me. A rat got into my bike and chewed up some wires on the right hand side. I would like to know how to remove this connector so I can repair it. It is a 2012 Gl1800a. Thanks

On a 2012???? If it were me, if the bike's still under warranty, I'd start with a phone call to the insurance agent and have the dealer fix it, 'cause if there are other warranty claims or problems down the road with something else, you would have a leg to stand on. If you take on the repair yourself, you're on your own.

I think you should take Steve's advise. In this day & age, dealerships use any excuse to void warranties. You won't win if they say no and then you get a big bill. Just sayin'.

Honda dealer doesn't warranty this problem. They want to charge $120.00 hour to work on the bike. No thanks.

The dealer wouldn't warranty this problem but, call your insurance company and see if they will help. Perhaps even your home owners insurance. At least you'll only be responsible for the deductible. Then you could have the dealer make the repair so any future warranty problems won't be an issue. Meaning that you won't hear "I'm sorry this repair isn't covered because someone was messing around with the wire harness".

Yes! Call your insurance, have an authorized HONDA dealer do the repairs.

1-unplug connector
2-use a paperclip or small jewelers scrdr and release tab where the wire enters the connector and pull wire with terminal attatched. Go to electricalconnections.com and match the terminal.
3-Google auto connector repairs and you will find you tube videos showing step by step

HOPE THIS HELPS
