Install tail tidy

Install rubber grommet back into the hole in the bike. Push the tail light plug and turn signals plugs thru the rubber grommet into the bike.
Attach the tail tidy to the bike with 4 bolts.

Plug the tail lights into the R&G resistors. Then plug resistors into the Yoshimura KTM turn signal adaptor. This was the from the testing I did to make sure all the wiring worked. I include it here to show the resistors and KTM turn signal adapter.
6417

Plug the tail light and turn signals into the tail wiring harness we removed the the old tail. Then plug the tail harness plug back into the bike.
Wrap up the excess wiring with zip ties and push them out of the way in the tail.

Parts list

1 - Yoshimura tail tidy
1 - Yoshimura Corner turn signal mount
2 - Yoshimura front sequential turn signal kit
2 - Yoshimura KTM turn signal plug adapter
2 - R&G 9.8 ohm resistors
1 - 12oclock labs brake light plug

Lessons learned

In retrospect I would have just purchased the plugs for the tail light and turn signals. While the plug and play was real easy. It left the wiring very long. I would have cut off the bullet connectors and soldered the resistor to the turn signal and then to the connector making the wiring much shorter and cleaner.

Using the resistors the turn signals worked perfectly with no dash error messages.😃
