help wiring new headlight

PostAuthor: rtphilipps » Sat Dec 29, 2018 2:31 pm

I just bought a new headlight which has integrated led turn signals in it, and I am having trouble figuring out how to wire it. My current front turn signals have 3 wires coming out of each. On the left turn signal one is ground, one goes to the rear turn signal as well as the speedo the hazard switch and the turn signal switch, and the third goes to the fuse box and cycom (which I eliminated). The right turn signal has a ground, a wire that goes to the hazard and turn signal switch the speedo and the rear turn signal, and the third goes directly to the license plate light. The problem is that the new turn signal only has one wire for each turn signal. The problem is that the stock turn signals also operate as running lights, whereas the new integrated turn signals I am pretty sure do not. I've attached images of my wiring harness, the wires for the new headlight, and the headlight itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

your factory front signals have 3 wires where you will use 2 from one a 1 from the other.
blue from the bike harness will go to your brown daytime running lights. use 1 blue from the harness and tape off the other.

blacks will not be used for the turn signals.

dark/green to your new light blue

dark/brown to your new light gray.

green from the bike headlight is low beam
yellow from the bike headlight is high beam
black from the bike headlight is ground...............dan
