WR450F Headlight Harness connectors

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 WR450F that have had the headlight unit off to fix an indicator issue - come to put it back together the other day and noticed these connectors that are not connected. I am thinking that I must have pulled them apart by accident while I had been tugging on the harness to get some slack.

Can anyone confirm that these two connections go together (See Pic)

 

Thanks

Come on peeps - surely a helpful fellow WR450 owner could help me out and have a quick peek behind their headlight unit to confirm for me :rolleyes:

 

Any assistance would be appreciated

It looks like someone has cut and spliced the wire harness.  Those connectors are definitely not factory.  There previous owner may have installed a hidden kill switch somewhere on the bike, or maybe they were powering another system like a brake light switch, high beam switch, etc.  I would put a multi-meter on the two leads and see if there's any live power, and try to figure out where those wires go to... or, you could try to connecting red ->red, black -> black and see what happens.
