Need tip for wiring tail light and blinkers

I recently installed an undertail on my 01 RC, and the instructions weren't very clear on how to hook up the tail lights. I'm sure there's plenty of experience with this type of thing on this forum, so I'd be greatfull to get a few pointers

cheers
Shay

ahhgg! Thanks itschad73 but it seems the lights don't work, even after following further instructions from the manufacturer. What a pain.

it's by Bestem USA, bought on ebay.
I've managed to figure it out, just a little more tweeking.
It's such a visual improvement to finally cut that ugly stock fender out and replace it with a painted undertail.

Re: Need tip for wiring tail light and blinkers

don't forget that if they are led lights then they will only work with the right polarity.

Re: Need tip for wiring tail light and blinkers

If you order a RC51 wiring kit for a PCIII it comes with factory connectors for $20. Clip them off and wire them to your tails. then the untertail will plug into your factory harness.

Re: Need tip for wiring tail light and blinkers

Hi PabloLavin
I did finally figure it out.

You have 4 color coded wires, each with a green ground wire on the bike including
light blue = left turn signal
orange = right turn signal
black/brown = running light
green yellow = brake light
green = ground

and four color coded wires on the undertail.
black = ground
blue = running
red = brake
yellow = turn signal

Solder all four green ground wires from the bike with the two black ground wires from the undertail together and shrink wrap, or at least cover with electrical tape. (this was the part I got stuck on)

then match up the corresponding turn, running, and brake wires.

cheers
Shay
