Extra/Loose Wire for Flasher Relay?

Post by Mikexdillon »



Hey guys,
Im trying to get my flashers working on my '80 GL1100 and i found a loose wire in the same harness that goes to my flasher relay, and I dont see where it is supposed to go. The wire is solid green, and there is a white/green and a grey wire connected to the relay. Any direction as to what this wire is for would be helpful. Thanks!

The solid green wire is only used on European models. Not connected on US/UK models.

All solid green wires on the bike are ground.

Some flashers require a ground wire in order to operate (i.e. some electronic flashers). That's what this wire is for.
