Step 8: Install the sub-harness that connects the brake light switch to the brake light

Applicable to these part numbers:

PLEASE NOTE: If you purchased the REAR-BRAKE-SWITCH-SPLITTER, please see these alternative installation instructions.

  1. Secure the end of the black wire (with insulation stripped and wires tinned with solder) to either of the set screws on the brake light switch. I typically choose the terminal nearest the left side of the motorcycle.

  2. Route the wire to the tail light. There is a hole in the front of the fender (on the left side). Route the black wire through that hole. Route the wire through the hole in the rear fender nearest the tail light. Don't take the time to secure the wire in place within the metal retaining clips, I do that after everything is in place.
  3. Connect the other end of the black wire with the 4 mm male bullet terminal to the corresponding black wire with the 4 mm female bullet terminal at the tail light.
