I just bought a 76 gl1000 GoldWing with a Vetter WindJammer III. It came with extra seat, front forks, front tire/rim, and tank/side panels. Upon taking it home after buying it I switch out the seat (to see if there is more comfort in the other one) and when doing so the wire crimps came loose for the tail light and turn signals. I tried to match up what would make sense to me and I can only get bright tail light and no change for brake light. Also the right turn signal light is the only one that I can get to work as the left turn signal light is either bright or dead.

So to keep it sweet and short I am in need of a wire diagram for 76 gl1000 specifically the tail/turn signals and the headlight/turn signal area. The only ones that I can find on the internet are grainy and can not read the wire colors and componants. Any idea where I can find a clean diagram on the internet? Or if any one has one available in PDF format that would be greatly appreciated.

Hoping to get it up and running again before the weekend of the 28th of April due to my MC is going on the first run of the year. I got to show off my vintage GoldWing

If you need any more information for diagnostics or something just let me know.

Thanks

I will get you one tomorow sometime if you have not found one by then. I will have to scan it in and my scanner is not hooked up right now.
I do recommend getting either the Clymer or Honda service manual if you have not already ordered one.

I also have it on two different books. If you don't get it from the latter - sorry, didn't see the name--I'll send it to you. I suspect the problem is in the weird way the grounds are configured in the vetter side saddles. Check each light in the back of the saddles. There is a ground return that comes off that light and comes back up to to a brad on the mounting side of the sidesaddle. The ground would be made by makeing contact with the medal mounting piece on the inside. Over the years, these wires will become loose and create all kinds of trouble.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

Well I got er done. What was messing me up was the turn signals on the saddlebags. The lights have 3 wires and the diagram only had 2 wires. I matched it up so that the signals only use 2 wires and followed the rest to specs from the diagram and it all works again.

Of course trying to work on the wiring near dusk and my wife will not allow me to bring the bike inside so that I can have more light. I just had to sit back look over the diagram and the wiring on the bike and figured it out. With the direction of the gounding as well (thanks 77Winger).

I know that I will be back to get/give help on GoldWings as I learn (since most experience is with yamaha). Now to work on the oil leak that I have at the tach housing and adjust the clutch for better shifting and fix the slippage.

Where is the cheapest/best place to get a Clymer or Honda service manual?

Thanks again

Every now and then you can catch a clymer manual on E-Bay. But if you use it to rebuild carburators, please read over advice on Radack's page before you do. There is some backwards info in the Clymer manual concerning the jets. Glad it is going. By the way, that dang oil leak may be coming from a failed gasket where the fuel pump housing meets up to the head. That is where mine was.

Be gentle on the web server, I pay for it out of my pocket.
