Looking For a 2015 F6B Sub Harness

Post by Shadow_Rider_06 »



I am buying a new Bushtec trailer with a 6 pin connection. They currently cannot find a sub harness for an F6B.

Does anyone know where I might find one? I've already tried Rivco, JP Cycles, and the most usual spots. Bushtec says the guy that makes their brand is unable to get the plugin to complete making one for me.

Here is a link showing what is required - https://bushtec.com/products/sub-harnes ... 8f8c&_ss=r

Any help is appreciated.

You might try electrical connection. They supply much of that stuff too Bushtec.

I build trailer harnesses for the standard Goldwings, but I have no knowledge of the F6B, I do not know if it shares parts like electrical harnesses with the standard or not. Do you have access to the wiring diagrams for the F6B? I may be able to help but I will need schematics and photos of the connectors.
PM me and we can exchange email addresses.

Looking into this a bit more, I am not able to find a free download of the F6B lighting schematic, but I did find that Kuryakyn makes a rear lighting adapter wiring harness, PN 3234 https://www.kuryakyn.com/azureFiles/kur ... _72DPI.jpg, this could be used to send signals to a standard trailer isolator or converter that would power the trailer lights. I have built something similar to that break out for my 2013 Audio Comfort wing to power up a custom light bar I built. With a little help to identify exactly which connector those black ones are and what the pin out is, I could probably build a system for powering trailers from a F6B.

Thanks.

I've ordered the manual from Helm a few days ago so I'll have a schematic soon.

Excellent, once I can identify the best place to put in a breakout harness I will need some photos.

The folks at Bushtec came through for me and they have sub harness on the way.

Sorry I didn't follow up but I've been to busy to tear into things for the photos you requested.

Ok, are you planning on using an isolator or just wiring straight to the bike?

They found an isolator and everything they needed.
