What is this connector.

Post by IanUK »



Hello All,

Only had my Wing for a couple of weeks, so I am still finding my way around it. It is becoming a bit of a winter project now that weather here in the UK has taken a turn for the worst.

Anyway, to the point. What is the left/smaller connector on the radio (see picture)


I don't have the CB on my Wing and wondered if is connected to that system.

Cheers.

Both connectors are required for the radio to function. The power, audio, control and LCD connections are spread across both of those connectors.

Then why do I have a working radio/cassette but don't have that connector? Strange.

Hi - Ian - Saw your post there fella !! - Two -Things here fella !! - First could you please post some pics of your problem their fella !! - A picture speaks a thousand words there Ian plus you get a better response to on here if you do so - Without pics your tying to solve a problem working blind Ian - You cannot do that when work on a Goldwing fella - it will come back and bite you on the arse Ian .

Second - Ian - If you go look on the manual section you can download the radio manual for free Ian and the external wiring manual as well at the same time - That will at least show you what should be there Ian - Yes ?? :D :D .

Lastly !! -

From - what you have said Ian - And bear in mind here - I am working blind Ian - it sounds to me that someone may have tried to add a new radio unit or has been playing around in there Ian - I would strongly recommend that you download those radio manuals and have a gander to see what's there wiring wise !! and " What's missing too - Ian ..

Hope this helps too !! - Best regards - Jon - P.m me too - Ian :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

The wiring may have been hacked or it maybe a different make of radio - Honda had two makers make them for them look on this link /Docs/Honda%20G ... -DDF6B.pdf this is for the 1989 model Ian .. :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks for that buddy. I will take some pictures next time I have the radio housing off the bike. I will also download the radio manual as you suggest.

Many thanks.

Oh - yes too - Ian the CB - Audio system is run though the Radio audio system Ian - That OME- radio unit does more than just play songs there fella - upgrade the speakers - Yes - rip the bugger out no !! - IMHO on that one Ian - If you are thinking of adding a CB - PRETTY DEAD NOW IN THE UK !! - you can look on the web for a wiring diagram fella - I know there is one on the web somewhere !! :D :D :D :D

Cheers wingdings, no real interest in the CB. Like you say, it's dead and buried in the UK unless you are a truck driver. Thanks for the info mate.
