wiring question or tip


Recommended Posts

I want to add a couple of bright red leds to the back of my bike and I don't know (I tried google) which of these wires is the side light (which I want to tap into) or brakelight wire, I was wondering if you guys could help me out, its a cbr600f 1998.

looking at this I'm fairly confident the yellow is the side light and green the earth. the remaining two colour wire being the stop light.

As has been said, you may need resistors unless you buy 12v LEDs with them built in.

Hi if your going to use them as additional tail lights just be sure that you can clearly distinguish the difference between your tail and stop light. If there to bright you could run the risk of someone behind you not being able to see your stop light

Cut the green wire.......no, wait, the brown wire........no, hold on, the green wire.......but then again, the brown wire...... :lol: :lol:

Or....instead of cutting wires you could use Scotch Blocks...... :wink:
