What is this deadend wire in headlight ?
« on: June 06, 2011, 05:35:36 PM »
There is a grey colored wire behind the headlight, in the nacelle of my G5 that went nowhere - just deadend.  What is this for ?

It may be a wire for a parking light.

Singh, did you check the wiring diagram in the owner's manual?

I'll bet it's for the little parking light that used to be in the headlamp, I wonder if the Indian domestic models still have it?

The other gray wires in the headlamp go to the pilot lights so the parking idea is probably correct

I think you are right. My C5 came with the 7" Minda headlight and the little parking light and this might be it..........

+1 for the parking light. UK bikes have 7" headlight with a little parking bulb in the side of the reflector.

You mean my G5 is missing a parking bulb  :D !  

Nah, I like the idea it is an I-pod line  ;D - Now, I will have to buy an I-pod/pad - those touch thingy's.  They are amazing though.

Thanks to all.

Ohhh, so if that is a switched 12v+  power line, that would be PERFECT place to tap off for my forthcoming headed grips! :) I wonder if it has its own fuse.

Another one of those little mysteries - like why the switch for four-way hazards isn't connected.

I believe its between the starter button and the stop engin button on the right handgrip.

I put on a Kuryakin rig to hold the throttle in postition while cruising to give my hand a rest so it doesnt fall asleep and was concerned about covering the switch. Then I realized it didnt connect to anythign so who cares ::)
