C10 wiring diagram complete
« on: June 26, 2015, 07:23:56 pm »
I have the clymer service manual for my C10. I have always been disturbed by the fact they have a separate wiring diagram for the junction-box (fuse box/relays), on a separate page, with no hard cross reference to the "main" wiring diagram. This makes it hard for me to understand the circuit functions.

So with much graphics effort and some reverse engineering I merged the J-Box wiring image data into the main wiring diagram. Here is a jpg of it. Perhaps other COG C10 owners will find it helpful.

Happy riding (and wiring),
charger_john in Kent, WA.

This is great, thanks John! I have some other wiring I'm cleaning up as I added a relay switch and wanted to add some other farkles.  :great:

So, where's the diagram for the pre-94 bikes with the Reserve Lighting Device?   :nananana:

Seriously, though, thanks for the work.  Looks good.

Thanks for that. Very helpful for an upcoming farkle wire campaign. (one of these damned days when I can make time)

Dumb newb question - (too lazy to walk out to the bike / lawnmower tent) -

One would think the wire colors of the diagram would match the wire colors on the bike itself? I would think so, but...

Had a thought to install a marine grade fused junction block I have kickin' around here somewhere into the plastic box above the battery with fat wire battery juice to it, then a hank of heavy gauge 5 or 7 wire trailer cable from the junction block to the front fairing area to feed assorted relays when the time comes. So far I'm thinking air horn, one or two sets aux lights, at least two cig plugs and I'm up to five, so I guess 7 wire would be the way to go, and make one of the 7 a dedicated ground. Maybe use a bolt up front for a ground lug and use the dedicated ground in the cable to get back to the battery - maybe. Now to find a less than 250' length of 7 wire cable. I have a loom all hot wire fetish, so the cable would eliminate some of the looming. :o
Sorry for the OT - coffee boy on the loose typing out loud again.

There's a great deal more different than just the RLD on the older bikes. Switching, J-box duties, etc. are different. I'm just saying that for early bikes, you/we still need your service manual and multiple pic jumping.  But this is the best wiring diagram I have ever seen for the post 93 ZG's.  Outstanding work!  This needs to be archived somewhere for folks.  I just made a color 11X17 print out and it's very, very nice.  KUDOS and THANKS!!!

I did this as well, installed a blue sea 6 position fuse block under the right side cover. I spent like 60 bucks on it like 8 years ago..ridiculous. I just recently bought a regular old fuse block at oreily that is 10 position w/ ground that I intend on replacing it with. I think it will hold up just fine, and only cost about 20 bucks.

I gotta ask...did you do this by hand?!?!? If so...nice friggin work. I mean, I would have scanned the kawi service manual for you had you just asked, saved that labor, but this is very nice if you authored it.

Since it appears that charger_john used the Clymer manual as the basis for his diagram, the colors should match what is on the bike.  Thus far, everything on my bike has matched the Clymer manual colors when I've gone looking for a specific wire.

Thanks for the great work you put into this wiring diagram.  My only question is where is the accessory connector that is suppose to be up front?

Accessory connector is shown on the left side of the diagram, just under the headlight.
BTW, my bike (2001) has another accessory connector just like it, under the seat, that's not shown on the diagram.

That would have been great having the kawasaki diagram!
I looked over this site and didn't find it. (actually found one part of it scanned
but not enough to help)
Some others had made comments about not posting copyrighted data......
So if you don't hear from me anymore maybe it's because I've been sent up.

But anyway, I got the job done in my spare time using the Clymer diagrams
and microsoft paint.

Yes George my diagram might belong in a wiki/knowledge base of sorts (if there is one).
I had to condense the file size a bit to get under the 350K attachment limit. If someone
out there has permission to post in a wiki, feel free to ask and I can e-mail the full
resolution version (798K).....

You are a scholar and a gentleman.

I have access to a large format printer, and I'd like to dump this out to something I can hang on the garage wall.  Any chance of getting a version of it that is about three feet wide?

Forgive me if this is obvious

ctrl and + makes the diagram larger

ctrl and - smaller

ctrl and 0 (zero) restores it to original

The above works with most windows screens
