What do these plugs go to?

Post by Roughridercog »



Before I go mad and start taking things apart searching through mt 1989 Wing (Old Ugly), could you help a guy out. They're on the left side of the fairing.

They look like the AM/FM radio connectors. Have you had it apart lately? Does everything work?

Those look like the factory radio plugs.

If your Panasonic factory radio does not work it is because those connectors are not plugged into it.

They are the radio plugs and radio is a no go. Thanks for your help. At least they're not dangling leaving me wonder.

Great. Plugged them back in and now reverse doesn't want to work.

Perhaps that was why they were unplugged?
There is a reverse wire going to the radio that mutes the sound when you engage reverse.
