Wiring mash up

PostAuthor: BnB » Sun May 13, 2018 8:28 pm

Hi everyone, long time reader 1st time poster. I picked up an 85 XV1000 that's had some "work" done to it. Guy I picked it up from said he lost interest once he got to the wiring. Now that I've had time to start working on it, I've figured out that it has a 750 harness on it. I know some but not a lot. My question is, will the TCI and the regulator from an XV750 work for the 1000? Thanks in advance.

Hmmmmm......

I think some of it depends on what year the wiring harness and TCI is.

Not positive but I think the wiring on all the 81 thru 83 XV750s should be the same.

hmmm... pretty sure the reg/rec will work ok, but the TCI?, possibly not so much ... the 1000 [IIRC] has a pressure sensor [told it's for idle/low speed timing?] like the 1100 also

IMO: this is a good starting place for your wiring ---> viewtopic.php?f=140&t=29436

Well that sucks. It's also kinda what I figured. I guess I'll be searching for a TCI for it now. Thank you.

the 81-83 xv750 does not have a starter relay in the harness.. the 1000 will need one.. you will have to add a relay for the starter.. plus the 81-83 xv750 has relays that are not used on the xv1000.. so you will have alot of left over connectors/relays that cannot be used. you have 2 choices.. 1 find a factory harness for the 1000.. 2 make your own harness for the 1000.. but you will need connectors for the TCI..............dan

no time to do it right..always enough time to do it twice.
it is if is isnt :con:
If it went together easy... you forgot something.
when in doubt.... ground it out!
