Wiring Harness Mess

Trying to learn how to rewire my motorcycle - I am going in blind even with the books to back me up.


  • That looks daunting. Why are you rewiring, anyway? Is there a gremlin in there?

  • I hooked up my new battery and several of my wires started burning, with actual flames. I believe that the metal in the wires were exposed and this was the cause of the fire...not sure though.

    I wasn't sure the extent of the damage inside the taped up spinal cord of wires - so I found a used wiring harness on Ebay for $25.

    My plan was to just reconnect all points - complicated but not impossible if I am patient. Once I started I realized that I am not sure if the purchased harness works or not.

    At this point though - It may be easier to open up the existing harness - chase the obvious damaged wires and use the ones from the purchased harness to replace them.

    I still don't know if some of the hardware was damaged or not.

    I wanted to learn about motorcycles - so here I am.

  • Hats off, Flynn. Wiring harnesses always scared me... whimper.

    Seriously, good luck!
