i've never done it so, first hnd, i do not know but when i start moving on them and i will, (i like the plasma rods by CD) i'll start looking at the wiring diagram in da book, then find them wires on the bike, it will become apparent... i hope.

If you are putting on plasma rods or led they usually come with installation instructions.

Custom Dynamics has some connectors you can plug inline to the rear fender harness. They go under the seat, and break out the wiring so you can plug into the brakes, turn signals, and running lights. Well worth it. You do not have to cut any existing wires.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

x2, much better and cleaner than hacking wires.

The easiest place to hook up the tail and brake lights is the Accessory plug under the seat.
There are four wires in this plug.
The orange wire can be used for the running light.
The Red/White tracer is the brake light.
And the black is ground.

Or you can tap the tail light housing.

Plasma Rods

Has anyone got photos of how they installed or where they installed the plasma rods. I want to add light to my 13 RGU.
