Best way to install spot lights on st1100p
« on: January 18, 2020, 06:34:10 PM »
Team,

Iíve scratched my head for weeks now... what is the easiest way to wire in spotlights on an st1100p?

Iíve tried to make sense of the diagram brick provided, but I canít relate it to the bike layout.. and now Iím looking at an st1100p with all fairing removes worrying about how long it will take to put back together again!

I can see on front right side under side fairing there is 3 connectors.. should I wire the lights into these? And are they attached to a switch somewhere I can use?

I was hoping to use the 9 switch on left hand fairing.. but do not understand where I would wire the lights into.

Does anyone have some simple steps I can follow?

Ie:
Which switch I would use to turn them on/off?
And which cable and where I connect the positive and negative to on that cable?

Yours in utter confusion!

Nick

I can help in another week or so, I am still in thailand, back on 24th..

I dont have access to my drawings, or the bike at the moment.

Thanks Brock! If I canít work out in next week Iíll definitely ask for a hand when youíre back :)

Iím trying to get the installation of the following done this week before heading away for Australia Day weekend:

Spotlights - driving me crazy!
Uhf - Iíll wire this as always on direct to battery if I canít find a switch for it to connect to
Lighter socket- got this sorted as always powered to battery for time being

As I recall, you have an ex cop bike, so UHF is easy, wiring the driving light isnt difficult, but is a little fiddly

Yes I think fiddly sums up the frustration I have with not being able to understand how to do it easily :angry-old-man-smiley-emoticon

I mean thereís plenty of cable to work with because it has the cop harness in it; if only I could truely understand how it works in order to work out best way to do it :)

I guess I should know how to do it, as I am a 40year Avionics Tech

there are 3 wires on each side, all go back to the duck tail, from there I think a 9 pin block connects to the police switch block on the right bar,

Correct Yorkie, Cant remember how I did the wiring for my lights, but the 9 pin plug under the seat was used to control them
