Default TSSM to tsm

Hey Cosmo,

I know guys with 2004-2006 have luck with the nhs link

But I took off hand controls and turn signals and am not sure if toggling the left turn signal is necessarily? What do you think I could do for that step? I have a 2004 883, switching out the TSSM to TSM from an 05’ Sporty.

Cosmo isn't around much anymore... BUT...

On the TSSM (& TSM), the WHITE/Violet wire on Pin8 is the Left Turn Signal Input line. In normal wiring and operation, when the left TS switch is activated, this line gets 12v power.

You can simply jumper a wire into that connect point and SIMULATE the left turn signal button being pressed by jumpering it to 12v power when needed for this procedure.

Hey thanks for writing back! How do I jumper it in? I’ve never done that before. Care to explain a little bit more? I’d really appreciate it.

Well - Let's back up a bit -

Did you simply disconnect the handlebar controls at their connectors up front? Are the connectors still there? The wires, at least?

Connector 24A is on the wiring harness - It mated with the left handlebar controls thru Connector 24B. Since those controls aren't there, you need to make something else act like the Left TS Switch button.

The Left TS Switch is a normally open switch (making no contact) and when pressed, it simply created a short circuit between Pin1 (the ORANGE/White wire being 12v) and Pin5 (the WHITE/Violet wire - Going to the TSM/TSSM).

Any simple, normally open, pushbutton switch could be wired across Pin1 and Pin5 (of Connector 24A) and SIMULATE pressing the Left TS Switch whenever the pushbutton is pressed.

If you have totally removed all the wires back to the TSM/TSSM, then you'll have to make the connection for the temporary pushbutton at the TSM/TSSM using Pin1 and Pin8.

If you only have to SIMULATE pressing the Left TS Switch a couple times, you could simply use a short piece of wire (instead of a pushbutton) and short the appropriate pins to make the contact. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL not to short against any other pins.

Hey thanks for all the info! I ended up switching the stock 04’ TSSM to an 05’ TSM on the first try! I just stripped the left hand turn signal control wires and tapped them together twice to simulate the toggle motion and it worked!

Good to hear you were able to make the swap...

Ride On...
