I recently purchased a set of switches for my bike. I received them today, and to my horror they are different. I never thought about the different years and the self cancelling turn signals on my 85.
The new switch don't have the self cancelling setup on it.
My wiring has 2 connectors from the left switch that has 9 wires on one pigtail, and 6 wires on the other. I believe the 6 pin connector is for the self cancelling setup.
The new switch has 2 connectors, main is 9 pin, and the other has only 3 pins.
Can the new one be modified to work? I really don't care if it has the self cancel or not. It don't work anyhow. I make it a habit to turn them off after about a half a block.
I looked on the forum, but couldn't find any posts concerning it.
does anyone know how to do the mod? Or do I just leave the 6 pin connector unplugged? Or will that affect them? I tried looking at the diagrams in the online manual, but couldn't make out anything on there.
I'm going to use an Ohm meter tomorrow to chase the wiring down on my switch to see if I can just go with the 3 wires and intergrate them into the harness.
