Question about Triumph Rocket III Motorcycles
I would not splice the new wire.If at all possible,return it.Or if there is some kind of retrofit kit,it would need that,but it doesn't sound like it is made for your particular system.If you can get the old one back,you need that.If you want to attempt to splice the new one,you need to know exactly which wire and which pin does what but even if you do,the specs may be different or a whole list of differences and problems could happen(fire,blowing fuses).If you still have the old one I would put it back on.If anything,since you seem to know something about electricity,I would hard wire a rheostat into the old system,away from the gas tank.It may be awkward to mount or look bad depending on the mount,but is a much better alternative than using the newer system wiring.You will need to know an amperage rating of the system to get the appropriate rheostat so it does not run too hot from a low amp rated rheostat.For a 10A DC system,you probably need at least a 120 watt rheostat,maybe a little higher,so that it will be able to handle the load.Also if you do this,you could run the heater always on high,and adjust with the rheostat.Maybe ask the dealer or an electronic repair shop about the required rated rheostat.Good luck and ride on!
