Help installing new undertail

I have a new undertail. The 2 brake light have 3 wires which colors are red, black and grey. The turn singal on each side have 2 wires that are red and black. The colors don't match the original wires. The original wires are green colored, orange and black.

Re: Help installing new undertail

was trying to find a way that won't take all day, lol. but i guess that may work. But now i have a problem. there isn't much power coming to the bike and i have no idea why. I know it was something to do with the exposed wires from the previous tail light. SMH

Re: Help installing new undertail

The battery probably is dead/dying

Get a trickle charger and then play w/ the wires.

All day ---> it's 7 wires, it'll take 10 min!

Re: Help installing new undertail

your right. I'm going to get the charger, throw it on then figure it out. I'm a rookie. Still learning. And now i just found out i have a oil leak somewhere. I don't know if it needs to be re-sealed, the oil plug or the pan is cracked. very slow leak

Yikes.

Wipe it clean and watch it!

Perhaps try a new crush washer on the drain plug.
