Murph headlight wiring
« on: January 21, 2017, 04:04:51 am »
Does anyone have the wiring diagram handy for Murph's headlight harness? Installing a salvaged harness on my '89, and need to confirm which wire goes to which terminal on the bike's H4 plug.

You could probably email Murph's support.

I could, but Murph and his....um....support are on vacation right now.  ;D  But I may just end up waiting until they get back to work.

I have the diagram you need, but I won't be back home until this Friday.

If someone hasn't gotten it to you by then will send it.  It's a in a pdf format.

I installed Murph's wiring harness in 2010. I did find hard copy  instructions in my files.  mgoodrich says he has the diagram in .pdf and will send it.

The applicable section reads:

"Holding the OEM headlight socket with the terminals at 3,6,and 9 o'clock, insert the white wire on the left, the plain black wire on the bottom, and the black wire with the red heat-shrink on the right."

Left = 9 o'clock, Bottom= 6 o'clock, Right = 3 o'clock.

On the last page of the instructions is an "Addendum for Reserve Lighting Device equipped Concours". It says that early models came equipped with  a Reserve Lighting Device. It instructs how to remove this device  from the bike and install a jumper on the remaining 9-pin connector.  The jumper is between the blue wire pin and the blue with yellow stripe pin on the female half of the connector. The device is mounted to the fairing stay on the left side, under the left hand fairing pocket. I did not pay attention to this Addendum as mine is a '06.

Good luck. Let us know if you need more info.

THANK YOU!!!!   :great:     That is EXACTLY what I needed!

I'm assuming the Reserve Lighting Device circuit has already been disabled, since the bike presently has the VVME 35W HID kit.  But thanks as well for including that info, it reminds me I need to check.
