76 GL1000 front blinker wiring

Post by Johnie »



Hello...new here and did a search in the DIY and found no answer. I got a 76 GL1000 a couple weeks ago and it had no front blinkers. I sourced the blinkers and the mounting studs for the bottom of the fork ear, but can't figure out how to get those wires safely into the bucket through the stud which exits at the fork. I don't want chaffing on the wire from fork movement. Thanks for the help...

There were originally some small rubber boots. You might have to substitute some heatshrink tube.

I actually have 2 of the #8 grommets partzilla shows, but it really doesn't show how that wire snakes around the fork. I would guess through the back and up. The bottom of the fork is sharp so I think it's a good idea like you said to put some shrink tubing on there. Thanks for the reply. If anyone has a pic of that area it would really be appreciated.

Your post was from April so it may be too late but here are some pics of the wiring. The pics also show which way to place the rubber grommets. The grommets fit into a notch on the inside face of the chrome. Hope it helps somebody.
