Santa brought me a Gerbing jacket liner and G3 gloves. I read the installation manual and am just about ready to connect the wiring harness. Before I do I would appreciate anyones help with these questions:
1- Can I keep the "Battery Tender" pigtail harness connected to the bike, and just place the Gerbing harness rings over the Battery Tender harness rings ? Both wiring harnesses have their own dedicated fuse.
(I suspect this is doable, but the Gerbing manual says ... "Do not use the Battery Tender harness that may already be installed on your vehicle". I suspect this means not to plug the Gerbing products in to the Battery Tender Harness (?).)
2- The manual also says that the amperage draw ( 9.6 in this case ) may exceed a vehicles ability to charge the battery properly. Could this be a problem with the Goldwing 1800 ?
3- It seems somewhere on the boards I read that we need to plug the Gerbings in to the wiring harness AFTER starting the bike, and unplug the Gerbings either before or after the engine is shut off ? I didn't see this being addressed in the Gerbing manual.
Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks,
