I'm hoping someone will chime in. I have an HPNA VIIA manufacture date of 06/08. I'm attempting to connect a backoff xp to the brake circuit after returning from my trip. My 2006-2009 GL1800A service manual indicates using connector C31 but C31 is not on my 2008. C31 is listed in the ETM location on page 15-7. C31 is not in the location the photo connector on ETM page 22-15 pict 84 indicates. C21 is on the bike and page 1-70 for the 06-08 year doesn't list C31. (See Pict) I see other connectors for the NAV, etc but not C31. I did take a probe to C21 at the Grn/Red wire and it lite up when I pressed either brake but not with the XP connected.
Any ideas and which is the connector for the pin brake circuit?
I did find the C21 connector deep under the frame and covered over with many other cables. The connector was housed w/in its rubber boot but covered in grime. My electrical cleaner paid dividends. Sometimes you must be tenacious when assistance not available.
Not sure of your status in doing your project at present but, my bike is also an '08 level II. I installed the Signal Dynamics Back-off Wig Wag years ago. It was so long ago that I can't quite remember how to tell you how to go about it but, if the pics come through, you'll see one of the main plugs under my seat, I don't know just which one it is but, it's a big one and, it goes to all the lighting and wiring at the back of the bike so, the brake light wiring is in it. And, that brake light wire is a green wire with a red stripe.
I wanted the ability to control which lights flashed and, at what time. So, what I did was this. I pulled that plug apart and, sent the one end, back under the trunk and, out the back of the bike. Then, I sat on a little stool and un-taped that whole harness. What I found was, that green wire with the red stripe, was split off, into other sections of green wire and red stripe. That is, one turns into two which, turns into four (for all the brake lights back there) I then separated all those green wires w/ red stripes. I kept track of which wire, went to which light.
Then, I soldered on extensions on to each of the four wires. I then ran those extensions along the original harness and taped them all together. Now, the plug (and extensions were stuffed back under the trunk and, back into position under the seat. Now, the extensions were attached to a junction block I mounted to the frame. And, the wires from the Wig Wag were attached to the opposite side of those brake light wires.
This is where it gets cool. By removing and re-installing those extensions on the junction block, I can alter which lights initially flash and what pattern I request. If at any time, I wish to change it, I simply remove those wires and install them in a different connection. I know, It might be hard to understand but, take a look at the pics below. I don't know if I've helped you or made things worse but, If I can help further, please ask.
P.S. I tried to upload a short video of how my lights work but, it came back and said the "file is too large for the server to process". Man that sucks 'cause I wanted you to see it.
Well, I finally got around to taking the Wing in for it's brake recall thing. After signing the paperwork for the work to be done, I took a walk around the showroom floor. I was gonna take a look at the new Wing just for grins. But, I never made it to it. I was stopped by one of the best...
Looking to replace my current helmet to the Neotec2 with SENA SRL Communication System.
What are peoples opinions?
I have used the Shoei 3/4 (RJ series I believe) and it fit me the best of all I have used.
I am considering the purchase of a shoei Neotec helmet with a Sena 10U headset. The seller says that the battery only lasts 4 hours. I was wondering if you're able to replace the battery in the headset to allow for more listening time? Anyone have experience with this?
I saw someone asking in another thread what he thought the average age of a Goldwing rider is. I checked and found a poll from 2011 but am curious if that has changed since the new Goldwings have come out the last couple of years. My guess is there is a younger group of people now enjoying the...
My wife and I ride a Honda Valkyrie, we mostly ride on long weekend trips and average about 12,000 miles each summer. Two years ago we had the opportunity to ride a 2004 Goldwing for a couple hours. I felt as though the Goldwing was by far the best handling, most comfortable bike I have ever...
