Hi All,

Slowly getting there, have yesterday replaced the fork springs with progressive and found that the guy who had put the cap in previously had stripped the thread so awiat a new one.

On inspection of the wiring I found that the turn signal cancelling unit has not been connected. It is a brown 6 terminal connector block and, as far as I know, it is not an item left off the Interstate.

Can anybody tell me where this brown block should be connected.

Thanks again

On the Asp and Se the 6p brown plugs into a 6p white in the steering head. Is yours an Interstate? If so the Interstate doesn't have self cancellers.

Thanks Jason,

I'm a little confused as to what the wiring is for then. It goes down the steering head stem and underneath there is a the switch (I think). Strange that Honda would go to the trouble of fitting it for nothing. Also the handbook makes no differential between the models when it says the indicators will turn off once turn has been completed or you can manually cancel by pushing the indicator directional switch:?

Sorry,

reread your post. The cable goes into the steering head and is connected. A brown connector block is at the other end (exposed)

Steve, you still don't say what model GL1500 you own. I can't really help on this unless you let me know as the wiring diagrams are different and take time to work through. I'll only waste time going through the wrong one if I don't know what model I should be looking at.

Sorry Jason,

It is the Interstate with the radio/instrument panel converted to Aspencade

Sorry Steve, I'd forgotten about the thread with the radio conversion. Apologies for that. I tend to lose track with all the posts I make (still nowhere near Redwings totals though). I'm sitting looking at the Honda ws manual and I have the diagrams for the all the models laid on the table, just before I head out for a few drinkies. There is a wiring diagram specifically for the self cancelling unit and I'm afraid it's not listed for the Interstate, only SE & Aspencade. The SC unit is on the back of the instruments anyway so your new dash will have it, but you won't have the sender in the front wheel, so that's what the head unit connector would normally plug into. The 6p brown sitting in the steering tube is probably the one that the wheel sensor (SE & Asp) would plug into.

Thanks Jason,

Pondering this, I still don't understand why Honda would go to the trouble of installing the device in the steering stem unless it was required. I am assuming that my analysis of what it is for is correct although I may be mistaken. Also it may just be that Honda have built all the chassis with basic electrical equipment the same for those to build up to spec required for retail.

Thanks

Steve

Steve, you will find lots of connector blocks on your Interstate that go nowhere. Just lift the saddle or take out the fairing pockets and you will see loads of them for such things as foglights, CB etc that are fitted as standard to the SE. Theres qute a few under the saddle that are serving no purpose as well, just one of those things. If you want the cancellers to work you will need the wheel sender from an A or SE model. Also I do believe it wires into a tilt sensor as well, so it's not just plug & play.

Hey, I just noticed there is Guru tag in my profile where it used to say Member! When did that happen? Well I'm chuffed to bits anyway, I'll have to buy a biger hat to accomodate my swelled head. Thanks to whoever did this!

Thanks Ted,

I understand that there will be additional connector plugs as in cars the manufacturers leave openings for accessories that they supply. If this were just a connector off of the harness I would understand it, but why put a self cancelling unit (which by all accounts aren't cheap) on something that is not going to use use it.

There is one currently listed on Ebay at the moment if confusion is being caused as to what I am talking about

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=4505346318&category=35594

So what else is required to complete the circuit? Seems a shame to have not to utilise what mr Honda has provided.

Thanks

Steve
