Mystery part

Post by kolot »



Jus






t finished upgrading my shock on an 03 GL1800 with a new progressive spring, stainless braid line and a fluid top off. Those that have taken a shock out of these know what is entailed in getting to the shock. Top shelter, fuel tank , the works. Anyway at just about the time I was putting the top shelter back on I noticed this circuit breaker/ relay on the floor, for the life of me I don't think I dropped it but it came from somewhere, unless someone is playing a cruel joke on be. Could not find anywhere in the harnesses I may have disturbed where this would go, does anyone recognize the breaker or know if it does not belong on the Honda?

I should add that I have owned the bike for 3 yrs, purchased it used, it did not have many aftermarket items running to the wiring harness, I have added aux lights, but this is not part of that. Wondering if someone my have dropped this down into the fairing at some point and I managed to shake it loose. Bike has 35, 000 miles, I did start it and check the basic functions, horn, lights, turn signals, horn, cooling fan, brake lights, all work.

That’s not a Gl1800 part, probably not even a Honda part. There’s no circuit breakers on the 1800, only fuses. You should take it for a ride before you install the shelter just make sure everything works and you get no FI light. It’s easy to miss some of the sensor connections.

That is not an OEM Honda part. However, it could be circuit breaker for some accessory that was added on. Does your Wing have any aftermarket electrical accessories ??? If so is everything working ???
