I can’t figure out where the plug location is for my throttle position sensor my bike didn’t have one when I bought it so now I’m trying to put one on but can’t find the other end of the plug
THE TPS wiring is continuous from the TPS to the connector under the false tank:

Re: Fuel light comes on sometimes

Do you have a picture of the RR, make and model? The tilt switch as you call it, shuts off the fuel pump and engine when the bike decides to nap (bike is laid on its side or dropped) for whatever reason. It is a safety item so I would not bypass. These fuel injected models are not like the carb mode...

Re: Fuel light comes on sometimes

You mention the fuel light will flash on. There are two fuel lights. Is it the fuel light or the fuel system light? The difference between the two is that the fuel system light is similar to the check engine light in a car, it indicates that there is an electrical fault in the CFI system. If it is t...

Re: I would like some Advice on my 1980 GL1100I

First item to get is an OEM manual if you haven't got one, second item is timing belts, then the rest. Everything you have mentioned except the clutch and carb issues is normal maintenance/baseline the bike for use. Put together a schedule of what you want to do and pick away at it with a goal to ha...

Re: Anyone pulled a trailer?

When I got back into riding decided I'd never tow a trailer. Fast forward some 5 years and a trip to the Yukon and back, bought and towed a trailer. My pillion mentioned we didn't need one, but after the trip admitted it was very convenient having the trailer. Towed with my 1500. It's an N-Line sing...

Re: Feedback Re-Oil Consumption

Bit much on the consumption, but if you're not seeing smoke and such I'd live with it. The bike is some 41 years old and it is loosing more fluids from age, just like we all do. You've got a beautiful bike, until you stop at a gas station and check the fuel and fill up the oil - something like the o...

There is an RR check in the service manual. Could be like a coil, when cool works fine, heats up and fails.

Re: 85 Goldwing

The ECU is under the trunk. This unit controls the whole CFI system, is integrated with the travel computer that sends signals to the dash for various readouts. The spark igniters are just forward of the air filter under the PB sensors. These are the rectangular grey units, about 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch.

Re: Bike just died like fuel pump quit 1985 Limited.

First - you need to get a copy of the Service manual supplement. Without it you are flying blind so to speak. The electrical troubleshooting manual is a must as well. The ECU has 5 indicator lights and are read from back to front. From front to back the indicator lights are: 3-2-1-0 W. The W indicat...

Re: Cornering Lights Yes another question.

There is a procedure in the electrical troubleshooting service manual. There is a brown 6 pin connector left side forward that you need to access to troubleshoot. Best way to get at this is to remove the front fairing, otherwise a real PITA and you cannot get at one side of the connector.

Agree with the Ghostt. An RR upgrade is a good idea, a new shunt RR using MOSFET internal components is good, but an upgrade to a series RR versus a shunt RR is the best idea. MOSFET is just an electronic internal component replacing the older style SCR and such. It has been around for a long time, ...
