tail light problem

Post by athsrq89 » Fri Apr 18, 2014 5:01 pm

Hey guys just bought an 83 gl 1100 for 500 bucks and it runs great but the taillight was swapped out for a tiny after market one and want to put the stock back on but the problem is they cut the stock wire and i cant seem to get it wired up right.... All i can do is get it to full bright, but not dim as normally seen when riding without breaking. Any info or input would be appreciated PS on the right side of the handlebar where the front brake lever is only two of the electric posts have wires hooked up but the harness dosent appear to be cut up there.

Green is always ground.
Brown is the park lamp.
Green/yellow is the bright brake filament.
You must have the brown hooked to the brake filament.
