DISCONNECTING WIRE HARNESS PLUG 2010 GOLDWING

Postby Marco V » Mon Jan 03, 2011 8:21 pm



I am presently installing Kuryakyn Bar risers on the above bike. One of the steps require to disconnect the wire harness plug and speaker wires to remove the instrument dash. I am stuck on the wire harness plug. Can anyone advise me on how to disconnect that plug?? I know it is probably a simple step.
THANKS

Marco,

I've never done that, but Fred Harmon's DVD set on Goldwing maintenance has a video that shows how to disconnect that. He sells it through Direct Line Parts. I think he also has a youtube video out on it, or posted on one of the other GW boards.

the plugs are spring loaded and keyed---you'll need to remove a rubber cover from the back of the speaker where the wire comes in, then you'll find the keyed plug. The plug on the meter panel is also spring loaded.

Marco,

The link below I've think is fantastic as it provides step by step instructions on how to repair and/or install accessories on my 1800 GW. Some of the topics have just pictures and instructions while others also contain video's with voice.
