A great item to raise your visibility from the rear. I think the supplied t-tap connectors aren't the greatest fit to the bike wiring, and soldering is a better option. I shortened the supplied long black wiring and put the whole connected bundle under the plastic cover behind the licence plate. I did not cut into the taillight/brake light loom under the fender, instead I used the licence plate lamp wire to connect to the GREEN wire on the supplied run/brake circuit. I then ran a single wire from the the yellow wire (brake light wiring that is inside the sheathed loom under the bike seat) back to the wiring bundle I installed behind the licence plate. Note the instruction sheet at the CC website shows the slip-on LED arrangement ie the led ring shown has a heat resistant rubber grommet to allow the led ring to fit snugly over the installed indicator lamp and I believe that pictured item to be p/no EC-01314, but this kit number EC-01315 supplied here is the one that silicones the LED ring onto the inside of the indicator lens cover, which covers most motorcycle setups.
