A wiring nest! Need help deciphering it.

Post by Lastwachter »



The bike is not completely up and running as of yet, so I am not 100% sure what is or isn't working. However I have some photos of wires without mates and was hoping someone could let me know what it should be plugged in to. I have taken a look at wire diagrams and photos but am having trouble connecting the dots so to speak. Any help would be appreciated.


**Side notes that might help**

-Only the high beams work, when put on low beams nothing lights up.
-The back left blinker does not light up, but I believe that to be the bulb. (not confirmed)
-The blinkers do not blink they just light up solid when engaged.
-I do not have the front blinkers hooked up. (I had to purchase them and could use help with where they need to be attached as well.


Thanks as always for everyones help!!!

I don't see a 9 prong female to even connect this into.

Well this should be fun.
Generally.
Solid green is always a ground
Brown is park lamps.
I think orange is one of the turn signals.Cant get to my schematic right now.
The plug...Perhaps it went to a faring?

The previous owner did say it had a fair on it when he got it.

That plug in your hand is the plug for a fairing.

Will I need to unravel that plug to get at any particular wires, such as the front blinkers?

I bought a new to me harness on ebay, cut and soldered out the fairing harness and now just have a few wires left to contend with. I started a new thread about it, if you could take a look and give me a hand and a few pointers I would greatly appreciate it.
