Motor Trike Fog Lights Disconnect

Post by jimmybarton »



I have a 2002 Honda GL1800a with a Motor Trike installation (2010). Everything about my bike is Great except my fog lights which seem to have been disconnected and the wiring left hanging when the trike was installed. Check out my pics and you'll see what I'm talking about. The fog light wiring is suppost to go to the hazard light switch panel on the left side of the bike. But as you can see there isn't even a switch in that box as there is suppose to be. Not only is there not a switch but the panel doesn't even have a spare plug wire for the fog light switch to go to if I got a switch and put it in there. You follow :roll:
So, if anybody knows anything about Motor Trikes or maybe its just a goldwing installation problem I don't know but I would be very grateful for any suggestions.

You can buy a fog light switch from cyclemax or wingstuff. The wiring and connection's go through a relay under the left hand pocket and behind the emergency flasher panel.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

You have been asking about these lights for a few posts but no one has said this. These lights were not standard and did not come from the factory. Nor did they come from the trike manufacture. A previous owner would have installed them. Honda and other company's did make the kits as accessories. They would have come with their own wire harness. Without the switch, I would suspect they hooked them up to the headlights or a circuit off the key switch. Not sure why Motor Trike would unplug them. Like Keith said, you can get a switch from the company's he listed. You are just going to have to take some more plastic off the bike and start searching the wires out.

Yeah, I agree. Thats next on my to do list. Your right about the aftermarket lights and all and I already know where to get a stock switch that goes in the hazard light sw. panel. I just need to find the spare circuit to plug them into.
