TomTom Rider 400. What a pain.

On my 2001 GL1800 Goldwing I fitted a Tom Tom rider 400. I also have a Sena 20s head set and an iPhone 6. The trouble is I can not get my Tom Tom to stay connected to my Sena 20s. On my iPhone in the bluetooth settings mode the Sena 20s and the Tom Tom are both connected. I can hear the Tom Tom givi...

Re: Blower Fuse Part Two ( Help )

Put it up on the center stand and simulate a moving bike (in gear side stand up wheel moving going through the gears) and see if the fuse will still blow. Since the dash indicators are involved different things are going on with wiring and switches on a moving as opposed to stationary scenario. A b...

Re: Blower Fuse Part Two ( Help )

Does your bike have the #2 relay (Stop lights relay)? Or is it like below? 20161231_110613.jpg20161231_104811.jpg The reason why I ask is, because there are some differences between US and Euro Spec bikes. This is for US spec bikes.image.png So when you say number 2 fuse, the components connected t...

Re: Blower Fuse Part Two ( Help )

Sounds like you might have pinched wire that is only shorted when there is someone on the bike. I would look under the seat and inspect the connectors there for any damage. I would also look a little closer at the turn signal canceling device since you might not see any problem with this while sitt...

Re: 2012 GL1800 Extra Fuse Block

Just a quick one kc10fe. Your turn signal and brake light wiring are all in your trunk lid.There is a Kuryakyn plug and play which you may be able to use , as I said because my Wing is a European model I had to make my own connections to fit my spoiler brake and turn signals. There is a lot of room ...

Re: 2012 GL1800 Extra Fuse Block

I mounted my extra fuse block in the compartment in the trunk where the CD player would go. I found it very easy to get at if there is a problem. Hope this helps.

Re: Blowen Fuses

You could start with checking the relays in the fuse/relay box on the left side of the bike. One of the relay might have a melted contact. Test the relays on the bench and inspect their pin holes and if necessary the wires behind the relay box. Many thanks Erdeniz for you help on this one. Will kee...
