What are these for?

Post by Corkster52 »



As I am working on taking out an old OP auxiliary horn button, I took the bottom of the left-hand handlebar riser cover to remove the wire from the button and found 4 empty connectors. They are orange, green, white and gray (see attached photo). Anyone know right off hand what they are for? Thanks!

Those four wires came from the CB radio switch.

Since the Aspencade did not come standard with a CB, so they either included them for both the SE and the Aspencade or they are for something else.

Grey Green Orange White at Connector #20 for CB handle bar transceiver switch option. Just looked on wire chart.

Including it in the harness made sale & install of CB option on the Aspencade a easier deal.
