i planned on doing a series of changes to the lights as the photos show, but i had one perplexing little problem. my donor bike was an ER6, the rat bike is a Versys and used the Versys tail light. there are only two differences in the wiring harness connectors that i know of, the main instrument connection and the tail light. i used generic uninsulated pin connectors and a little goop to make it this far, but it always bothered me.
i didn't want to buy the whole harness just for one little piece of it...hmmm, i happened to know of this Texan who was dismantling a Versys for his next ptwin powered KLR build, what are the chances...?
sent down a PM inquiry, and only a couple days later, this shows up in the mail
thanks again Mr. KLRsys, it was one heck of a favor.
