Motorrad GPS III install on K1200LT 91

I have just recieved a brand new Motorrad Nav III.

It came with a cradle and a cable to hard wire into what appears to be the chassi wiring of the bike.

I have taken all the top tupperware off the bike, the stingray and everything else I could find. I wonder where the plug for this device goes?

See pictures.

Thanks

Your LT will not have the wiring harness for the GPS. That started with the 2005 model year. You could remove the connector and wire the power directly to the GPS to operate it. Additionally, your intercom is the old Sikom unit with no provisions for GPS audio.

Thanks for the quick feedback.

do you know what the three wires are for?

Red = Positive
Black = Ground

Purple = ????

Thanks

Re: Motorrad GPS III install on K1200LT 91

Yes I know I am replying to a very old thread, but it will put information out there for others trying to do this.

The purple is "speed" and is only used by the 2005+ bikes for correcting the accuracy of the Bike Computer's calculations.

to get audio you have to CUT your wire a lot higher. up there you will find several wires, you want red and black for power, and the yellow and white.

Yellow and White are the audio out. be sure to solder your new wires to these and then use double wall heat shrink tubing to seal it to make the connection waterproof. You want to run the power to switched power so it goes off when you turn off the bike. The audio out is not speaker level but line level, it needs amplification to drive headphones. IT works ok With autocom inputs.
