Is There A 6-way Pole Adapter To 4-Way Connector On A Trailer Available For A Motorcycle


I need a 6 square pole plug on motorcle to a flat 4 pole plug on trailer. Do you have an adapter? I can send photos of both ends for reference. Thank you Paul

We do not have an adapter from 6-way square to a 4-way flat, but you can make one that will work. The first thing you need is the 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit (Car and Trailer Ends), part # 37995. You will need the end that plugs into your motorcycle to make this adapter.

Once you have the wiring connector kit you need. the Quick Fix (TM) 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends, part # 48195. You will use the vehicle end to create the adapter. Having a circuit tester will make this job easier. I recommend the Hook Probe Circuit Tester, part # PTW2993. The wiring in the from your 6-way connector will be as follows:

Exposed pin = ground (white wire on harness)
Next pin = running lights (brown wire on harness)
Third pin = left turn and brake lights (yellow wire on harness)
Last pin = right turn and brake lights (green wire on harness)

You can tape up the last wires and stow them out of the way. The next thing you need to do is plug these wires into the vehicle side of the 4-way connector. I would use some dielectric grease, part # 11755, to ensure you do not get any corrosion on your wires. There will be no splicing needed. You will use the circuit tester again to see if there is power to the pins of your 4-way. If there is power, you are done.

I have included product description links, video demo links, and an installation link below.
