Throttle Plug Wiring Questions
Ok, this may be a bit different from the normal asked questions, at least from what I have search for on this site and else where. Also, there will be 5 pictures along with this post.
I removed my stock handlebars from my 18 RGS and unplugged all the wiring so bars could be removed. Now, I saw the throttle harness 6 pin plug that I expected to see, but it was not connected to anything running to the bars, the first picture. The second picture shows a different type of plug, 2 actually, much smaller, both of the plugs running to the bar and the other end running to two different type of plugs that are mounted to the plate that organizes the wiring, second and third pictures. Pictures 4 & 5 show the wiring still routed in the stock handle bars. The one plug shows the single wiring harness, which would be the clutch side and the double harness on the throttle side. You can also see the throttle by wire harness,(but is not a 6 pin type plug), which is longer and is zip tied in a loop, so if you are going to add taller that 13" bars, you may very well may not need to get a longer throttle harness (this is on my 2018 RGS, so who knows HD may have just done that that a few bikes).
Finally to my question, did HD stop putting the 6 pin plug in the throttle side on some or all of the Road Glide Rushmore bikes, but still used some left over harness on the bike that had the 6 pin plug on it or did I just totally miss something?
I removed the wiring from the stock bars and the throttle by wire did not have the little plug I have read about and to be very careful not to damage when removing/installing. I also checked the length of the throttle by wire harness before removing and from the exit at the bottom of the bars to the end, is 18", that is why HD had it looped and zip tied.
