This Harness Must Be Purchased If Installing Hondaline Inner Trunk Light or Vanity Mirror.
The quality of the plunger switch, instructions, and lack of brightness is beneath a Hondaline accessory. That having been said, I am glad I have it. You need the trunk light and the harness, both sold seperately. Cons: Price, dull light, instructions, and the plunger switch does not snap into the pre-drilled hole on a 2010 Goldwing. The plunger switch is very loose. I'm not sure that cheap switch would snap into any hole snug. Pro's: Looks nice, plug-n-play wiring, light mounting holes are marked on the front outside of trunk, light automatically comes on when you open the trunk, and I have some solutions. Solutions: Mount the light to the trunk. Wire tie the harness to the harness in the instructions upward until you are by the left trunk hinge. With the trunk lid open, one-inch above the hinge, drill a 5/16" hole into the bottom of the left speaker compartment base. Run your wires with sleeve into the speaker box. This will allow you to make all four wire connections inside the left speaker compartment rather than having a bundle of wire connections in the outside hinge area as instructed. Plug into the power source inside the trunk top lid as instructed. Wire tie the harness down the other wire harness as instructed until you reach the back inside bottom corner of the left speaker compartment. Drill a 3/8" hole into the back bottom inside corner of the speaker compartment so you can run the wires and sleeve into the compartment and make all of your wire connections. I used Gorilla 5-minute set 2-part epoxy on the plunger switch to tighten it up in the hole, this should hold as there is very little pressure on the switch when it is in position. Remove the stock 3.4 watt bulb and replace it with a Sylvania DE3175 bulb. This is a 10 watt bulb and will light up the trunk nicely.
Since I was only installing the vanity mirror, I did not install the entire harness, which required removing a lot of plastic and drilling a mounting hole for the switch in the left fairing pocket. They should have a smaller, and less expensive, wiring harness option specific to the vanity mirror. With any bit if electrical know-how, you could install the vanity mirror without purchasing this harness.
