OEM pins

Post by MotoPhoto » Sun Feb 10, 2019 5:19 pm



Hi all, I am new to the group, but not to motorcycling, I just purchased a new 2017 GL1800.

My wife has decided after 43 years together that she would like to start riding with me; I am super excide for the adventures that we will be sharing together.

I am very picky when it comes to wiring and do not like just cutting into the OEM wiring to add power or increase lighting.

I want to de-pin the right/left turn signal and running/brake light. Cut the end off and re-pin with my added wire. This will then run to a power box that has right/left turn signal and running/brake light circuitry built in to is. I also has keyed and constant power.

Does anyone know where I can purchase OEM pins?

Thanks

Vintage connections may have something you can use. What is it you are adding?

I am adding a Electronic fuse block with accessory lighting, it will tie into the running/brake light and left/right turn signals so I can go to the box instead of cutting into the OEM wiring. Also be adding external GPS and Radar Detector that will tie back to the block so I do not tie everything back to the battery.

I have the Original Valentine One radar detector that kept me out of severe troubles back when I was running 500 miles per day on a company job, thru the wide open spaces of New Mexico..... it would pick up the "good guy" over 2 or 4 hilltops long before he could see me.

I won't admit to have many 10s of mph hour I was running back then, good thing the company always bought premium tires :lol:

I suppose it still works, it was the first on market with Laser detection...
found out that works "really good" as I saw him the same instant it went off.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

nice guy he was, advised me to keep my Pilot's License a bit deeper in my wallet, and put my landing gear back on the ground... and sent me on my way.

You might be looking for these.

https://www.kuryakyn.com/products/1335/adapter-plug

And here are various fuse boxes that many use. However, the last link has protected connection points and a generic built-in relay.

Awesome, I am coming off of a Triumph Sprint ST. She loved 120 and north, riding that fast I always had my landing lights on.
I will not be going any where that fast on the Goldwing.

Thanks for the Kuryakyn, I did check those out, they will not work for my application.
I have several fuzeblocks love then, they work great. I am trying Show Chrome Electronic Fuse Block Accessory Lighting.

in most of our land, speeds north of 120 will get some attention you might not want :D :o

I get the external fuse block. I added one from Electrical connection years ago and its great. (but since then they have redesigned it) But quite a few add-ons for goldwing turn signals are plug and play. I just added, as an example, LED turn and running light which secure just above my valve covers and they plug directly into the turn signal connector right behind the mirrors. Same goes for my new fog lamps which also have built in turn signals. Really cool! So no cutting splicing into the stock wiring just to run those function wires back to a dedicated fuse block. That way you save your new fuse block for gizmos that are not plug and play. I have also added hyperlights and a very bright red brake LED lamp and neither of them go to my extra fuse panel. Also check out posi-locks they may help you out as well..

My default supplier for pins and connectors is Cycle Terminals, http://cycleterminal.com/, has almost anything you would need to put together what you are talking about. Rather than depinning the OEM connector, I would opt to get the mating connectors and build a break out harness that goes where you want and then back to the lights or where ever.

Asphaltmaniac, thanks for the reply. I am new to this forum and the bike, just trying to keep things as new as possible. Wife says that I have a bit of OCD :lol:
I am just going on me experiences form the past, where I did all the extra wiring myself.
Hope I was not sounding like I know it all, trust me, I do not.
I will recheck into the options that you mentioned.
Thanks

Welcome to the wing family.
Good to hear your wife wants to ride with you.

Electrical Connection has a sub harness for the turn brake that is plug and play already. No need to repin you stock connectors.
Leave the stock pin out as is, so that someone doesn't have to figure out what you did later on. I've had a wing that someone did that and it isn't fun trying to decrypt wiring changes from the stock color code pin outs.

Sub harness here. You can get just the sub harness under the options button.
Or you can get a trailer relay powered isolator with it to protect the bike harness from power shorts.

https://electricalconnection.com/index. ... -isolator/

Then you just make your add ins to plug into the added sub harness with the correct connectors.
Again, please don't repin the stock harness connectors.
Thanks from possible later owners....

Newday777,

Thanks for the info, I have and will take another look at the isolators. They look like they will work fine, I just have never connected extra wiring this way before, not that I can't. The would be a hole lot easier to do my wiring.
When I say re-pin, I am not changing the order of the pin out. I de-din, add my new wire to the OEM wire, re-crimp and put back into the original pin out location. I then label the new wire that goes to the new fuse box. The fuse box would stay with the bike when ever it is sold.

I will take another look at the isolators and bring a set in for testing.

I will still need to run 3 wires from the fuse box to 1) constant power, 2) switched power & 3) ground. I like to leave my GPS on over breaks and stops, but I want my radar detector off over the same breaks and stops so that it is not going off while I am away from the bike.

Thanks again
