View Full Version : Little help please

I picked up this tail light and can't figure out where the other two wires need to go from the stock harness?:WTF:
Of course there is no instructions :bs: and on another site it just says:
*NOTE*- 2 turn signal wires must be spliced from your stock wiring into the new tail light
Anyone got a clue?
Thanks in advance.
BTW, this is on a 2010 rsv4-r

Depends on whether that's an integrated taillight or not.
I also added the EvoTech plate kit and the two wires for the plate light plugged into the stock harness (red to yellow (positive) and black to the darker blue (negative)).
Mine is integrated and (from what I remember) the harness attached to the taillight itself was actually short two wires leaving the stock harness with two empty ports (unless you use the EvoTech kit mentioned above). Check the light functions (blue and yellow taillight wires) by plugging into the other two ports to determine where they should belong, i.e. turn signals and brakes function properly.
Not sure if that helps and/or answers any questions...

That black harness goes to the stock tail light harness. The extra yellow and light blue, you'll need to splice into the white harness that goes to the fender/signal. I'm assuming they grounded using the black harness so you'll just need to splice into positive wires. Hope that helps.
You still using stock turn signals?

If this is an intergrated tail light, they are the positive wires for the turning signals as mentioned above. One is left turn the other right turn.
In the plug you have a red a white and a black. I am assuming one is for the ride light (red tail light - white or red) the other would be for the brake light and the black would be ground.
To Test -
Without mounting the tail light simply plug in the black plug into the original harness, then attach a 12V positive to the blue wire. It will determine which is the left and which is the right turn indicater. Then splice accordingly.
Solder and heat shrink your connections!
Hope this helps.
P.S. If these are LEDs you may need to include some resistance to match the resistance values in the globe, otherwise they will flash like crazy (Or stay on) :D

Thanks all. I will try tonight and take pics to post here if I'm still looking like this::gunner:
