2019 Pearl White & Star Silver Roadmaster
Contact AdMore, the wiring is different 2019 and up. They have a great service department. I communicated with a guy named Dave.
I'm the guy who first bought the AdMore Lightbar in '16 and worked with Dave at AdMore Lighting to make it work with the Indian's backwards wiring scheme. I also made the prototype harness that they then put into production (with some tweaks). I haven't seen their instruction sheet though. And if the later models are significantly different to the early Thunderstrokes, I won't be "up to date". There should be a 6-pin connector behind the battery, alongside the RH frame tube. It gets taken apart and a pair of connectors on the new harness gets installed to the two OEM halves. There should also be a 2-pin connector behind the shock absorber that you'll tap into for power to the harness.Totally stumped on where these connectors go under the seat. I've attached pics on what I got from them (plug and play kit) and what I have under the seat of my 20RM.
The 20 is different. David is working on the solutionDang! You later model Roadmaster IS different from my '16, so I'm not very helpful. But I can't imagine that AdMore would consider using the deat heater for power to the lightbar. I'll bet that the unused 2-ping connector is what you will use.
Greetings virginaJim,Well, there are at least two connectors to get power off of......accessory and seat power. Admore sent me pics of someone that used seat power. I was somewhat leery of doing that thinking it might pop a fuse/breaker if the seat had heat set to high on both sides. It was easy to tap into accessory power using the posi-taps they sent. Of course you could go directly across the battery but you should fuse that if doing so. The accessory plug comes off the main harness and is very small indeed.
As this is a Roadmaster, the top case goes on and off during services and battery terminal checks so I need to have quick disconnect capability. I ordered that kit but while it has all the connectors, pins, and weatherproof hw you have to assemble it all yourself. 5 hours later I completed one connector. Working on the second one now. New skills as the pins/sockets have to be assembled to the connectors. While you could make do without the special crimping tool, I bought one for about 29 dollars from Amazon. These tools run the gamut from very cheap to very very expensive. The tool is not obvious on how to use it for the un-initiated. Youtube helps.
I mounted my light to the black metal strip that runs under and part of the case. If you need to change settings, the light has a USB connector on the back protected by a plug. You have to remove the light in order to plug into it via your phone or use the bluetooth connectivity as that has a connector as well. Unfortunately I could not pair it with my S10e Samsung Galaxy (Question in to Admore on why that doesn't work). I had to use a direct cable to the phone which of course has a type C connector which isn't compatible with the connector on the light. Had to buy one of those in between connectors to get it to work with the Admore light ($19).
Back to pairing...my phone was asking for a pin code to complete the pairing. I tried both 0000 and 1234 which are standards for codes but no luck. Have no clue what's going on there.
Still working on the installation. I did see the light work and it works very well. Only question (Again, sent email to Admore (I like stuff in writing)) I have is with the red light brake strobe in that it only strobes once after you hit the brakes. I assumed it would strobe on a timed basis, but mine doesn't do that.
