    If it's a solid red wire and it's on a German vehicle, it's a direct-to-battery connection, hot all the time.

    Ignition-switched "hot" wires will be green + often a stripe.

    Brown (earth) is a ground.

    It's the Bosch standard.

    Well, take another look, I may be wrong about the color, I'm a little Red/Green blind...

    Ha!
    You dummies are as flakey as I am!
    Those last two plugs (pic above) were for the coil/ignition!
    I just figure that out last night when I installed my Dyna!!!

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this thread - this weekend I hooked up the Dyna Charge Monitor to the unused clock port on the R100GSPD wiring harness. Worked like a charm!

    DYNA - R100GS
    Black - Brown
    Red - Grey/Blue
    n/a - Red

    Did it right with the soldering iron and rubber shrink tubing & heat gun. Looks & works great. Thanks for the idea guys.

    :clap
