Does anyone have a good link to the install for the cruise from murphs? The link in the tech pages is broken. I'm trying to get this put in before next weekend. thanks. Brent

I've got local copies stored on my computer of the troubleshooting chart, the Murph's How To by Dave Krenk and a couple other things that are really helpful.

PM me your email addy and I'll send them along your way.

It's not a very difficult install, BUT...some words of wisdom:

1. If you don't have the vacuum ballast canister, GET IT. No vacuum-powered cruise will work right on almost any vehicle without it. (I believe the docs show it mounting under the right panel, on the side of the battery box - least that's where mine is. One bolt holds it on).

2. I really recommend mounting the control buttons and planning the wiring routing first. I mounted mine to the clutch master cylinder, cut the wires and added a 6-pin molex connector where the wires tucked under the tank. Then wrapped the wires with friction tape (you could heat shrink them too). This way the controls come off just like the other stuff - with a connector that's easily accessible.

3. I split the wires coming from the servo into 2 or 3 groups and then added molex connectors so it would be easier to install/remove/t-shoot. It's been a while but the diagram shows some wires running all over - like power I believe. Simplifying some of that made sense. Looking at the diagram, I extended the black and grey wires from the buttons to the servo, so now there are 6 wires from the buttons instead of four. Mine didn't have an inline connector as shown so I added that 6-pin molex.

Now ground and backlight are also in the harness end-to-end, and I have a single location for the connections (at the servo itself). That harness from servo to the buttons now has Red, Brown, Green, Yellow, Black (ground), Grey (backlight), and ALSO BLUE - but blue only goes halfway up the harness to come out under the tank to get to the coil for the ignition signal. The other six continue to the steering head where then end in a molex, with the other half of the molex connecting to the buttons.

4. If you mount the servo to the right side of the battery box,  you can hook into the rear brake light wire that's right there (coming from the brake pedal - blue if memory serves). It will be energized when you hit either the pedal OR the front brake. (One of the wires that I split out from the rest, to have a simpler setup).

5. The diagram is overly complex for the +12v wiring - if you bring a single wire from your 12v power source to the servo (I added an accessory fuse box, so the cruise is on it's own circuit now), then you can connect the orange wire and red wire to that rather than both orange and red to 12v. If you extend the backlight wire for the control buttons back the servo, you can also connect it to that single 12v source (why have multiple 12v source wires running around, providing multiple points of failure?).


Note that one of the wires (blue for the coil I believe) has a diode in it - make sure to retain that diode in proper orientation if you shorten the line.

thanks guys for the help. Although overwhelmed looking at the bike when I had it apart everything worked as it should on the first test ride. (9pm on a sunday night when it's 24 degrees out was quite exhilerating but way warmer than my buddy that rode next to me on his street glide)  The new bluetooth even worked fantastic

Sweet! Congrats!

Yea, it LOOKS a lot harder/worse than it really is, once you start breaking it down.

So do you have the vacuum canister?
