You are right about the 12v on the relay all the time but if you think about it many of the relays have power to them all the time.

Thanks for the feed back.

I think this is a great fix. On the 2012 you cannot adjust the headlights or the preload while moving. Is there a fix for this "safety" feature ?

There is but I don't use it. do a search on gl1800riders it is there. Please read the precautions if you do the mod.
I haven't read about it in a long time but there maybe some mechanical issues if you do the mod.

I'm not judging or criticizing the mod I just have no interest in it.

Does anyone have the wiring diagram for this mod? I have the relay but the instructions on what wire goes where is vague.

I just finished this, and it works perfectly! I followed the first procedure, didn't see the second until just now.

A couple of notes: W/Bl is for White/Black (not White/Blue).

The hardest part of the whole thing, believe it or not, is getting the damned seat back on so that the handles can be screwed in. Those holes just don't want to line up.

Thank you for the tip. Much happier biker now.

I just finished this mod, but I did a few things differently than other suggested here. For starters, I put my relay in the trunk GPS case and got the ground for the relay from the ground at the Nav module. This meant I only needed to run one extra wire into that trunk (the trigger wire for the relay).

Since I felt more confident in the solution having the relay wired as N.C., I went about looking for the yellow / white in connector C18 under the right speaker. It’s buried pretty well so I looked at the wiring diagram and found a better way. The same wire runs to the cruise / reverse module (black connector, not the blue one) above the air box on the 2012+. I tapped my wire there for the relay trigger.

Here are some pics that should help explain what I did.
