Where on the 1986 GL1200A fairing does the blue pin harness plug into

Post by grape » Sat Sep 22, 2018 10:35 am



Hi all. Was riding on some extremely rough Michigan roads when my dash started going crazy. Got to my destination and later went to restart and the bike was totally dead. I was able to track down the blown 30 amp main fuse that previous owner had replaced the dogbone with. I replaced it and the bike started right up. Rode it home with no issues. Next morning totally dead again but the fuse was fine. Today I pulled the poorly installed aftermarket radio to see if there was a connection issue. Yep. The blue pin connector was disconnected. I am no mechanic and my wife says I'm blind but I just can't find where it plugs into. Do I need to open up the fairing? Can someone post a pic of where it goes? Thanks!

Are you speaking of the blue connector about 3" long? Made like an edge connection? It might be the factory radio connector.

That would be the one! Sadly in other words that doesn't fix the no electrical power issue. The battery is good, the dogbone replacement fuse is good. I don't believe it would be the stator but what else would it be?

Maybe the ignition switch is dirty? Maybe a loose power or ground connection?
