handle bar electrics

Post by rufus26 »



Hi
I'm new to this forum,
I am in the middle of a gold wing build, I have a 79 gl1100. I have managed to put a yamaha R1 03 front end on the bike with usd forks (it looks great, and pretty easy to do). I am now doing the electrics. Trying to minimise the handlebar controls. But the wiring diagram does not seem to relate to the diagrams on this forum, I am doing the throttle side first. Any help please

I believe they are original switches but I am putting after market ones on. I am dealing with the headlight switch first. There are two yellow wires, a black wire and a brown and red. I think the black is the feed from the ingintion and the brown red is side lights. Any ideas on the 2 yellow.

First there is no 79 1100..79's are 1000's 1100 starter in 1980 so which is it??? But in a 79 left switch..Blue = hi beam, w= low, horn is LG, left signal = o, rt = LB, bk/y fuse for hd, br/w turn signals relay rear??, g =ground, LG = horn.
