Hello everyone. Have a question or two regarding tour pack led lights.
I have an 18 glide with detachable tour pak. I got an aftermarket led light strip i want to add to tour pak, but not sure how to integrate the wiring.

I have saddlebag turn signal- brake lights already on the bike. So from the following pics, can anyone chime in on the best way to integrate the tour pak led strip? It has brake and turn signal function. I think running light as well, not 100% on that.

Appreciate any tips or info. Thanks.

Get one of these:

And a 6 way FEMALE Molex connector and you'll be good to go.

The harness will plug in line with you bag lights. Did the light come with a what is what as far as the wire color goes?

Or you can "cheat" a little and visit Custom Dynamics or Ciro websites and look for installation instructions.
Because they usually provide detailed install information, sometimes it is easy to figure it out.

First you need to put the sockets on the wires, then inside the plug you see a white part. Pop that up and then you push the socket in from the back (side in your picture). Look up you tube videos.

Nope. These are. The HD part number is 72169-07. Go to your local HD shop and get some. They’ll have em and they are cheap. Get more then 6 cause you’ll probably mess some up cause I’m guessing you don’t have the correct crimping tool either so you have to make due.

Hay guys, sorry for the late reply, just getting over the crud.
I'm looking under the seat to see how this tour pack harness is going to connect online and i must be missing something because there is no available plug for it to connect to.
I it looks like I'd have to have either bag lights or tourpak lights with this harness, not both.
Am i missing something here?
thanks again for your help.

Yes you’re missing something. Unplug the bag lights and plug the new harness IN LINE with bag lights. You’re over thinking this.

If you plugged your bag lights into the connector under the seat that was originally going to the rear brake & turn lights, you probably used a separate small "Y" harness to give you the connector to plug your bag lights into. You're gonna need another "Y" connector/harness to plug into that, to give you a place to plug in your tour pack harness.

Up above a couple post, where you quoted craigffb, in that quote, the first pic/link that I am seeing is a "Y" harness, that is used to plug in to that brake lighting circuit (like the one for your bag lights) and it gives you a place to plug in your tour pack wire/connector. The second pic/link in that quote, is the 6-pin connector you would have used on the end of the wire coming from the tour pack light you installed, so it would match up with the "y" harness.

My bad. I think the female Molex plug threw me off. If i plug the y connector inline, the other end that connects to tour pack is a female plug. I ordered the female plug and need the male plug to connect to led light strip.

Sounds right, the "Y" harnesses looks like its 2 females & 1 male... so thats going to leave a female to plug in the tour pack to... gonna need the male one on the wire from the tour pack light. Sounds like you're about there though.
