Grey Green Orange White at Connector #20 for CB handle bar transceiver switch option. Just looked on wire chart.

Including it in the harness made sale & install of CB option on the Aspencade a easier deal.
Thanks!

Those four wires came from the CB radio switch.
Since the Aspencade did not come standard with a CB, so they either included them for both the SE and the Aspencade or they are for something else.

Re: replacing my horn

I temporarily hooked up my new Freeway Blaster (jumpers and wire nuts), gave it a quick toot and WOW...that sucker is loud. :o Woe is the driver I see creeping into my lane :twisted:

What are these for?

As I am working on taking out an old OP auxiliary horn button, I took the bottom of the left-hand handlebar riser cover to remove the wire from the button and found 4 empty connectors. They are orange, green, white and gray (see attached photo). Anyone know right off hand what they are for? Thanks! ...

I thought they all had a piece of clear like thick tape there, like 3M paint protector stuff.
I think you are right, but some of them seem to wear off over time.

Re: Engine guards bent?

So, on the heatshields, since the charred parts were on the bottom edges of each piece, I decided to try and repaint them. I had a heck of a time trying to get the paint to match the existing (after 3 coats) and decided to leave them as they are for now. I even tried a sample piece of ABS and put 2 ...

Re: Clear coating small area

I finally accepted that I was NEVER going to get where I hoped to be on this project a month ago. I found a trunk lid on Ebay that we reasonably priced and ordered it. It should be here on Thursday.

Re: Engine guards bent?

I, almost always, try to correct anything I find when I take things apart. Even though I didn't really have to, I took both of the heat shields off each side because they looked like there was some damage to the paint on the bottom edges. Boy was there :o On the front ones, basically, 3/4" of the bo...

Re: Engine guards bent?

That being the case, I guess I will just take one side off and if the dimensions are that far off I will return them. Well, the right side fit fine with no issues, but on the left side, I can't get any 2 holes out of the 3 to line up. Guess I'll have to either punch the holes out larger or do some ...

Trunk lid compatibility

After literally months of trying to repair the cracks properly on my 99 Aspencade, I have accepted defeat and want to see if I can find a decent used one out there. The one I have has a part number 81123-MN5-3000, but I found one on Ebay that is part number 81125-MAM-6707C and the chart that pops up...

Re: Engine guards bent?

I measured the gap between 1" bar and the valve covers. The right side was .235" and the left side was .416" measuring as far back as I could on each. The gap on the front of each was only a few thousandths different. I think I will just get a set of the old style from Amazon and if they won't work ...

Re: Clear coating small area

You should look at an air brush. Maybe some youtube videos on blending clearcoat. The more trial and error times I try to fix what I have, the more this makes sense. I did also try another thing that somewhat surprised me with the results. After I used MEK to take out the wrinkled paint, I put down...

You cannot hand brush 3 stage paints. And most 2 stage metals, pearls and micas. You should look at an air brush. Maybe some youtube videos on blending clearcoat. Also look into Assilex sanding products. When I do clear blends, I prep the blend area with their 1500 grit product, code named Peach. Y...
