1983 Aspencade ignition switch wiring

Post by Baitweller » Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:17 pm



Hello all, very new "Newbie" here with my first Goldwing. Its an '83 Aspencade with many needs to bring back to life. The previous owner cut the ignition wires at the switch and installed a simple toggle switch. I bought a good used switch with a key on Ebay ($10 plus shipping). The switch has 6 tabs but no wiring harness. The bike has all cut wires taped-off except the two that go to the toggle. Question: can someone please provide what color wire goes on which tab? Since I don't have the harness on either end I was hoping to use blade-type connectors and short wires to make the new key switch operable. Any thoughts or ideas are welcomed
PS- I actually bought a 1982 Interstate for $500 but after some thought it's just too far gone so I'll use it for spare parts or maybe a Naked bike project as the motor runs strong but everything else is too far gone.
Thank you in advance for all your help. I will be researching this site often as it has everything I would need!
