Check about the 8th post down posted by a dealer. :roll: He mentions the different harnesses. Nobody knows why but American Honda. LOL...Jim Henthorn said:I would expect that they are using the same harness for at least 2 out of the 4 - cheaper to fabricate one harness with a few extra connectors than to make up 4 different harnesses for for a GL1800.
Actually, I wasn't planning on adding ABS to my bike - was asking because I get interested in finding these things out. I have my answer now. Strange to think that its cheaper to have 4 different wiring harnesses than to make 2 or three.IBTrike said:I know Honda. I am involved in supplying them machines and tooling to make parts for their cars.
Trust me. If they make a different wiring harness or any other component for a different model, they do it for a very good reason. They didn't get to where they are by being stupid.
As for adding ABS to your non-ABS bike....forget it.
Like Red says, trade it in on an ABS model if you want ABS that badly.
