Wiring connectors
« on: July 12, 2014, 11:42:25 pm »
I want to add a secondary brake light below the license plate, I use them on my other bikes, dual intensity LEDs low intensity running that flash several time when the brakes are applied and stay on steady high intensity till brakes are released. The unit is a three wire device, ground, running wire and brake wire.
I know the brake light connector is under the seat behind the tool tray and ECU.
My question is does someone know what kind of connector it is?
Also where they can be obtained?
Would like to get some and make up a plug and play harness and have it ready before I go to install it.
TIA
Alan

Admore lighting makes a connector, may be a little overkill for just the brake light? I would just use some positaps? Here's a link to the Admore connector:

No problem.  :great: Good place to deal with, I've used them a few times for the R1.

Based on the Admore photo and website they look to be Hitachi style connectors.
EasterBeaver.com has them as well.

Yeah I've used Eaton Beaver before too but CT has a larger range, is cheaper on prices and shipping and doesn't have a $20 minimum order but both are good to deal with.

I recently added hyper lights to my rear brake light. They came with a tap connector that seems to be working just fine. I was also able to mount the hyper lights horizontally on each side of the brake light. The cagers get blast of light now when the C14 slows down.

Thanks Redecko,
Pricing and shipping are both better than EB even with meeting the $20 min.
I will give CT a try.
