Posted a few more pics here today. I don't have the instructions, the lights were a used set, installed by the dealer. LT wiring pics - Saturday - looks like we will be rained out shorty and temps are dropping quickly.
See the photos here:
#1 This is the green wire with a black stripe, and a yellow wire, inside a harness on the ride side just rear and under the outrigger for the crash bar. It was pinched in between the frame and the fairing. I don't see any bare wire, so I taped it. Just curious what it may do, just in case I have a problem down the road, could it be useful to know what this does.
#2 There is a splice in the green wire with the brown stripe going to the heated seat. I did test, and it does power on with the key. I would not appear there was enough room to fit another wire in there, but the closest connector I see where it may have been hooked up. Very shoddy workmanship on that install, and not reusable. Sure is not enough wire left to splice this together as it is.
#3 There is a white ballast of some kind on right side, under the passenger seat.
#4 pic is the wiring from that, going to ? behind the trunk. Any ideas what this may be. It has a 30amp fuse.
#5 Curious what this is ? it is tied to the bottom rear of the right side outrigger. It has a rubber sleeve on the outside, a rubber cap of some sort just about sticking out. The other end runs to what appears to be the back of the transmission and is bolted on with what looks like some electrical connector.
The driver's side D/C power connection on the LS fairing, is shot - both ends. Thoughts on replacing with generic Auto supply vs buying BMW replacement? It looks way too corroded to clean up.
AUTOSWITCH: I may be in over my head on this - so without some clarity, it may either be the most expensive LED I every buy, or I may have to sell it.
Sure would like to figure this out however.
The Orange wire going to the right handle bar cluster. Is there somewhere else on the bike I can splice into the brown wire with white stripe. I have difficulty seeing at this distance, and it seems more risky that it is worth taking anything else apart. I just had the throttle cables adjusted, and I can not risk moving stuff around I have no knowledge of. That cluster is well jammed in there.
I followed the wiring harness to the area behind and at the bottom of the right side radiator, but can not see where they go from there. I do see the brown with white stripe, but can not reach it, and would not feel comfortable splicing into at that area. Any thoughts on where to look beyond that. I do have a multimeter to test for continuity, if I can locate the right place to look for the wire.
What is the "AS violet" wire? Would this be the wire that goes to the + wire on the Motolight relay?
Greatly appreciate all the replies!!
Anyone use the BMW fuel line QD's? I need to buy something to solve that problem this coming week. It was too late to reach the Jiffy Tite company on friday.
