Brake Light wire color
on: November 14, 2021, 05:42:48 PM
Can anyone provide me with the wire color for the brake light?  I want to use it as the signal wire for additional brake lights (Skene lights).  I also need to know where the best location is to tie (Positap) into this wire; hopefully in the under seat area.
Thanks in advance

I to am very interested in the colour of the brake light positive wire.  I am looking to get the Weiser Tech 2-1 front and rear turn signals.  I don't want to go hacking into my wire harness and pick the wrong wire.

I am also looking to find out what color wire is the tail light wire (plate light) as the Weiser video shows that you need a switched 12v positive power source that turns on and off with the ignition for the front 2-1 LED driving light / turn signals.

Yes I am asking a

Everything you need is in the tail light harness, a multimeter will answer the rest of your questions.

I installed Skene P3 lights with Decelerometer & Turn Signals on my 2021 F900 R. I think they are superb lights. They are very bright and functional, greatly increased the bike's indicator lights to following vehicles (if the driver is paying attention). I tied into the wiring harness under the seat, just below the tool kit location. The brake light should be the gray/black/yellow dots wire. Skene has the wiring diagram on its website. The 900 seems to align with the F800GS with LED light.
