Quick release for rear section.

I have a tail tidy that I am about to fit with smaller indicators. I would like to keep the stock harness and get a new quick release plug for the electrics. I have spoken to my local dealer (insert usual profanities here) and checked out a couple of auto electrical and specialist stores with no luck. The only four pin connector I can get is considerably larger than the standard one.
I have checked the connector hoping to find the name of the manufacturer but no luck. Surely it's not a specific part just for the X series??
My dealer said it is not a separate part number, you need to buy a complete rear harness.
I don't really want to cut and solder new connectors but I might have to if there is no other solution.

Answers on a postcard.........

Cheers,

Matt.

Boy, good luck finding that connector. Easiest, cheapest, fastest solution is to use the OEM wires, chop them off, then use 4 of the small posi-locks to connect them to your mini-blinker leads. Or splice them together. Only other solution I can think of is to haunt the moto salvage yards, or ask around here for someone who is parting out his wreck, but you'll still need to chop the ends and connect them to the new blinkers, plus you'll also have to deal with that 4th wire (for the license plate light).

The connector issue was talked about in this thread just search connector. Try BMW part # 80000610612. It is a four pin off of a bigger BMW bike.

Part number as quoted above is corect, i did it myself - easier than cutting the wires and leaves you free to reconnect to original item should you wish

I agree with the above post... Save time and money and just cut and splice. Unless the harness is an easy buy. I did it knowing that We will eventually knock them off again... Next time the bike gets a signalectomy. Legal to run no signals in VA.

Sweet. Are these lights the ones from Twisted Throttle? May be looking to add a little extra lighting to the bike as long as they'd work with the TT Rally Fairing.

1. Where did you wire them for power?
2. How's the light output?

I understand they may not project too far but look to be good for close in and being seen during the day.

Thanks

Nice! Details? Who makes the lights? Lumens? How are they wired for power? If you don't mind my asking, how much?

Those are the new Solstice LED lights from VisionX. You can buy them from inmate Wannabe2. Here's his thread and here's his store. Two lights and switch and relay cost about $250 with the AdvRider discount.

Those Led Lights are pretty sweet.

How Good are they at throwing light?
I was toying with the idea of stripping the signals off and running aux lights mounted in their place.
Lighter than other Light pods?
