Question about Harley Davidson FXSTB - FXSTBI Night Train Motorcycles

1 Answer

I am replacing stock headlight with Bikers Choice 4.5 x 7" tribar. Current wiring is a 3 wire set up, white, red and black. New headlight has two wires, red and yellow. How would I wire this up as I suspect the black wire is an earth.

Use an ohm meter to verify that the black wire is indeed a ground (earth). Put the meter in R X 1 and touch either meter lead to the black wire and the other meter lead to ground. The meter should read less than one ohm.

Now, turn the ignition switch on and the headlight on low beam. Put your meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT or greater scale. Connect the meter's black lead to ground. Touch either the red or the white wire with the red lead and see if you have voltage. Which ever wire has voltage is the low beam power wire. Then switch the light switch to HIGH beam and again check the wires, the "hot" wire is the HIGH beam power wire.

On your new light, you should have a wiring diagram telling you which filament is the low beam and which is the high beam. If you don't, just wire it up and flip the "high/low" beam switch and see if it looks right. If it doesn't, switch the wiring. The new light should have a ground somewhere as well. Since I'm not familiar with this particular light, the ground may be a body ground that relies on physical contact when bolted on the bike.

I have a uniden grant xl the older one. i have spent 36 hours looking for a wiring for a m75 cobra power mic and have tryed lots and none work. i cant even get wiring for a stock[ cobra mic red white


it doesn't make a difference what color wire it is as long as the wire is connected to the function it is going to control If your mic has a red , blue , black , and shield wires but your radio isn't set that way you have to set it to the way your radio is . you have to find out where ground is then audio in and audio out then the last is the shield.

Here are the Pin outs for different mics that will work with your radio. If a wire is not listed then you cut it off. It's best to keep the wires as short as possible no longer than a half inch is suggested. Normally the Cobra pin out is standard for most radios.

Astatic - (4 wire) 1- Shield 2- White 3- Red 4- Black

I need the wiring for the mic


Hello,
Here is the wire diagram for several common mics in relation to a 4 pin CB. Most recent 4 pin CB's such as Midland, Cobra, Connex, Uniden, etc can use 4 pin mics. The wiring is actually depending on the mic rather than the CB so long as the CB's are 4 pin as well. Once you go back to late 80's the 4 pin design was a little different. Anything new it is simpler.

I am attempting to replace an old Lutron 4-way with a new TM874-WCC6. I attached the wires in the same configuration as the old one (in black and red on one side and out black and red on the other) but it...


Connect a black and red from the same _cable_ (pick a set, it doesn't matter which cable as long as both wires are from the same cable.), to the top two screws, again,it doesn't matter which wires are connected to which screw, as long as both are connected to the top screws. Connect the other black and red from the remaining _cable_ to the two bottom screws, again, it doesn't matter which wire goes to which screw, as long as they are from the _same_ cable_. There should be two white wires in that box also, one from each cable. Just twist the two white wires together with a wire nut.
