    2015 FLHXS Monkey Bar Install Problems

    Hello all. I just installed 12" PYMB's on my '15 FLHXS. I've been reading and getting advice from alot of you guys, but I need your thoughts again on some issues. I went to the dealership and and got the CVO TBW 32310-08. When I was there they changed the molex pins to female so it would fit. The tech there wrote down the install order of the pins back into the plug ( yellow sleeve/black sleeve) and did it the way he said to.
    Plug Cavity Order :

    Yellow Sleeve
    1- Black
    2- White
    3- Red

    Black Sleeve
    4- Black
    5- White
    6- Red

    Put it all together last night and started it up to check. this is what I have now:

    1- Check Engine Light On
    2- No Throttle
    3- Cruise Control Indicator on Gauges blinking " Yellow" ( will stay solid if I push in button on controls )
    4- ABS light blinking ( did not disconnect cables at all during procedure)

    Went into the DTCS section on the stereo and there are no codes logged.

    Any advice or thoughts would be great. I'm heading to the dealership today to ask them as well. Thx in advance.

    Well, the abs light will blink (when you first start up) until you start rolling.
    Any chance the wire order got reversed on one side? Seems like that scheme might cause the to end up marrying with the red, instead of the black.

    I am no expert, but when I did my bar change out (first attempt), I had all the same symptoms, I would check right and left switch housing, where the wires actually come out of the grip housing (very east to pinch wires when installing housing covers) and go inside the bars; also, be sure the two very small connectors are plugged in securely at the switch housing assy on left and right side; lastly, TGS (green) connector to interconnect, very sensitive and unforgiving, if not assembled correctly, it wont work.

    throttle grip sensor sends and recieves sensing data to ECU for all your symptoms listed, I cant confirm you CVO harness wire order, but assuming all of that is correct, you may just have an re-assembly problem.

    Came back from the dealership and thx to the service crew at Williams HD all is good.
    Turns out my problem was two fold.
    1- I did not have the pins seated in the plug correctly
    2- The female pins I used 72168-07 were wrong. Their is a different pin which is very similar I'll get the number if anyone needs it.

    They changed the pins and I'm glad to say all is well. Fired right up, runs great.

    Thx to Spazz, Kosi, Hulk and everyone else on this forum for their insight and advice on things like this. It makes doing these things and others a lot easier with your help. You guys Rock!!

    I'm having the same problem with my bike as you were. after i changed my handlebars. if you could give me the part# for the female adapter so that way I could check to see if I have the correct part and also the wire diagram to reassemble the plug on the TBW. I appreciate your help.

    Thanks

    Did you use the CVO Harness? I would have to get the female pin # from the service dept, but if you go to your dealer they should be able to look it up for you and switch the pins. The wiring I have posted earlier is correct, I just didn't seat them correctly. Make sure you hear them "click" when you put the pins in. Let me know.

    I am getting ready to do a bar install. I love the look of the yaffe 12" but I have heard terrible things about the condition of the interior of the bars. Did your bars have a lot of burrs, etc, inside?

    Not really. Mine seemed ok. Pulled wires through 2 times (first time pull wire came loose on throttle side, had to start over). Nothing got chewed up. All good. There are a couple of good videos to watch on YouTube, also I found a good one from Road 6 I think. On their website shows how to put 12" bars on without changing cables.

    Installing 12" Monkey bars on the SG. Watched the video many times. Am at the wire pull stage.
    First attempt failed. Very bad words were spoken, not my finest hour!

    If I never plan to use heated grips, can I clip off the connecters on the cable?

    The green connector will be eliminated (soldered and shrink-wrapped).

    Just want to eliminate as much as possible.

    Just did 12" monkey bars on my 16 SGS. My bars seemed pretty well machined.

    Make sure you're watching this video. You can't go wrong...

    Naturally all the wires from the right side were the worst. I suggest neatly wrapping them with electrical tape and greasing it. Grease was the trick for the right.
