Brake Wire location 2008 HPNA

Post by Goldwinger55 »



I'm hoping someone will chime in. I'm just returning from a 2500 mile trip and no answers from other forum before I lest. I have an 2008 HPNA VIIA manufacture date of 06/08. I'm attempting to connect a backoff xp to the brake circuit after returning from my trip. I did call signal dynamics and they didn't offer much specifics.

My 2006-2009 GL1800A service manual indicates connector C31 has the grn/red wire but C31 is not on my 2008. C31 is listed in the ETM location on page ETM 15-7. C31 is not in the location the photo connector on ETM page 22-15 pict 84 indicates. What appears to be C21 is on the bike and page 1-70 for the 06-08 year doesn't list C31. (See Pict with connectors) I see other connectors for the NAV, etc but not C31. I did take a probe to C21 at the Grn/Red wire and it lite up when I pressed either brake but not with the XP connected. I do have all LEDs for the brake/turn signal with LED flasher.

Any ideas and which is the connector for the pin brake circuit?

Makes no sense.... BTW.. I did set the pics in order with the correct orientation but I don't know why they didn't..

I did locate the C21 connector deep under the frame and covered over with many other cables. The connector was housed w/in its rubber boot but covered in grime. My Electrical Cleaner paid dividends for all the connectors. Now one to wiring my BackOff XP Brake Flasher before my next 2500 mile trip...!
