Autoswitch for Motolights-last 3 questions
I finally got the original harness problems figured out. The power lead was sliced under the rear passenger seat. I have two wires to figure out.
I have four terminals on the Motolight replay, all wires are black.
#1 two wires from one terminal go to ground
#2 one fused power to the battery
#3 one goes to on/off switch - to the key switched power source under seat
#4 I believe this goes to the lights - can't really follow the harness to see.
That sound right?
I have the 5NB AS kit. Their instructions state to connect the AS violet wire to one side of the relay. WHICH SIDE, since they all look the same?
The bigger problem is finding an alternative to attach the Orange wire that is supposed to go to the Brown wire with White stripe, on the right handlebar wiring cluster. I followed that behind and to the bottom of the right side radiator. Where it goes from there, I have no idea.
Is there somewhere else in the harness to attach that Orange wire to? If that can not be done, how best do I remove what is needed to splice into the harness, and that is done by what means? There is not enough room in there to used a  looking splicer..... My vision gives me great difficulty dealing with anything at this distance to work on it.
This should be the last of what I need to tackle before putting this LT back together, once the rest of the parts are in. I am hoping now that the missing screws in the handlebar, were the cause of my vibration. If not, may have to pull the windshield once the rest of the bike is put back together.
Greatly appreciate the information. ;^/
