    What Gauge Wire on 92 R100GS PD Harness?

    Will be doing some electrical work on a new bike I don't currently have possession of. Can someone out there verify the gauge of wire used on the harness?

    I think you're going to have to be specific to the area you're working on. Looking at Haynes' diagrams, I see wires labeled 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, etc. These are metric values for area...there are equivalences to wire gauge:

    OK...so I would assume the gauge of wire attached to the battery is the largest. I'll be putting an inline fuse here wired to a Fuzeblock. Then adding secondary lighting at the front and rear that will connect to turn signal wiring. I assume these will set extremes?

    Thanks.

    I got this from the Resources and Links thread:

    This should give the values you need for each part of the circuit.
