Wiring in a tail light with intergraded indicators?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Bought a LED tail light with intergraded indicators.

It will be going onto my xr650r, however i have a question before i even attempt to do this, as ive never dealt with led's.

It has 3x wires coming out of it.

Red, which i would assume is the tail light power source

Black, which would be ground for the tail/stop/indicators

Yellow, i have no idea!

Problem with this is, how is it meant to all work when i have only 3 wires from the new LED tail light, but i require 5 wires?

From the xr650, i would have 1x common ground for all the wires.

A wire for tail light

A wire for the stop switch/brake lights

A wire for left indicator

A wire for right indicator.

So, thats 5 wires all up.

Has anyone done this, must be some LED thing im not aware of!

It came with no instructions.

cheers

Bizarre... there should be at least one more wire out of it...

Black's more than likely the ground... tie that to frame, - side of battery, etc. Don't put 12v on that wire.

red's probably brake light... yellow..? Unless it's some really overengineered taillight, where black's ground, red is power, and yellow is some sort of data line...

Didn't come with instructions? Tried looking on the mfgr's website?

Thanks for the reply.

I emailed the seller,and got a reply.

They made a boo boo in theyre add and its a typical normal tail/stop light only.

I knew it was wrong but thought maybe they invented something new these days lol.

Ill see what they are going to do about it, otherwise ill use some flush mount blinkers with it.

cheers

I really wish someone would make a dirt bike tail light with integrated turn signals like street bikes
