Were any of you guys "jumpers" either taped into the harness, or tied in somehow?

Thanks,

Yes, seems tied in really tightly. It can rock a little, but other than that it won't budge.


Thank You for the reply.


That jumper plug "in-hand" was easy to do - the bike was stripped down. Makes it easy to get to.

I can't thank you guys enough for this help. I got my 2010 FJR home this month and the most annoying thing was the auto-retract. Thanks to this site, auto-retract is now no more. My friend just got a Honda ST 1300 which does NOT have the annoying auto retract, and before today the Honda was "less annoying". Not anymore!
Because of this site and the great pictures, I knew where to start looking for the switch, and the general area of which panels to remove. Now that I have done it, I would recommend anyone try it.

I am going to add a big +1 to this. I found this today searching for the Gen 2 solution and here it was. Worked perfectly.

Thanks all.
