Finding that Brake Wire (found it and followed up with install pictures)

I'm going to install a IBF9 comagination brake light flasher module.

I think the best place to install this is on the bulb side of the 14P-W connector





I'm looking to use the Green/Red wire, basically this one that comes from the Stop Light relay in the bank of Blue relays.



If I've got this wrong, please shout out before I get the wire cutters out.

Thanks

The connector in your photo is the CD player's connector, not the brake light connector.

This is the one you want (C31), keep in mind this is the main line for all of the brake lights in the rear, except the spoiler light.

The schematic your are showing is wrong with the connector's color, it should be gray. One of the little booboos in the service manual. If you go to the lighting section and look at the schematic there, you will see it references C31. The green/red wire will be on pin#3.

When it comes to elertricity, count on Techdude. He loves that like I like motors, trannys, and ADGs.

This is a little off topic but I just had to post a reply. I was eating a sandwich when I viewed the post by Chris and Techdude and when I looked at the two pictures they posted I almost choked! Both bikes are so CLEAN! Mine is so dusty and dirty in comparison! :bow: Either I am a complete scum bag or you two don't ever ride your bikes! Mine never lookes that good even if I had just taken a few hours to get after all the dirt that piles up on all that wiring. I feel so ashamed...no, that is not right. I am glad I ride instead of clean. :biker::yes:

<living off a dirt road probably has something to do with it>

Those pictures both came from the GL Service Manual PDF, well except the one showing the wires and the blue relay. That I took with my Nikon D7000.

But, my bike is that clean, just because I don't have many miles on it, and I am just publishing a video of my little project last night, also recored on my Nikon, using the video mode.

Hey Mark, mine is pretty dirty, but it never breaks so I don't have any pictures of it. The pic I used is from the service manual also. :thumbup:

Here's my video


Here's a link to a HowTo, Step by Step

All pictures are of my bike, and no I didn't clean it before I took the pictures.
