Hello!

I was about to eliminate the rear taillights to R&G fender eliminator kit. But after tearing it down i was about to remove the turn signal connectors on my R3 it didnt have it?
I didnt want to pull it to much in case i would break it so i just leaved it.
Anyone know what i should do, or if ive missed something? :(
Appreciate for all the help i could get!
Here are a photo for you guys to see:

That's interesting.

The good news is half the after market signals has those quick connectors.

It looks like the bottom bundle is both the grounds, and the top one are the actual left and right powered wires (green and brown).

At least your brake light connector is still there!

Yes that is how it should look. That being said if it was built to be a demo bike the wiring my be slightly different. The new signals; do they have the connectors like the stock or they just unterminated wire?

I've said this before but everyone ignores me, certain models mainly the european models just have standard bullet connectors and not the yamaha specific connectors, As a whole this is a lot more convenient as most indicators have those connectors, But as previously mentioned black cables are negative and green and brown are left and right positive

The new wires look like this and looks like the stock ones (that are not in my bike right?)



Do you or anyone know how i can get this to work, because im not that handy :|?

Another pic:


Is it just to pull on each end of the wires till it comes off and then replace it with the new wires without any problems? Just to make sure because i do not want to break anything? Thanks in advice

The plate light looks like it has bullet connectors as well, and from your pictures it looks like your bike is already set to receive those. From my image below, you should be able to just take the connectors circled in red and just plug them in. Are the female connectors (pointed to in green) attached? I think that's just a converter/extender if the other yamaha plugs were used on your bike.

Youtube is your friend. Watch some video on electrical wiring. The way I wired mine was I cut the connectors off the original signals and used crimp connectors to wire them to the new signals. In this case you have bullet connectors. It's hard to see from the picture but you should be able to just pull them out if needed. This way you can figure out which ground and hot wire goes to which side.

From the look of it the grounds are connected with a single connection. And someone correct me if I am wrong but you shouldn't have to worry about separating the left and right ground wires. Just wire them to the ground wires in place. Then wire the hot wires together after making sure you are wiring the left to the left and right to the right. Easy way to do that is turn on one of the signals and pull out the hot wire to figure out which side it goes to.

Thankyou very much for your help, much appreciated! Yes the female connectors are attached. Oh ok. I thought that the wiring (conv/extender) had to be included for it to work properly. I will try this out tomorrow!

Are you by any chance in Europe? I think your bike is this way because its the difference between the european and american version of the bike. I have the european as well, and its exactly like your.

I have put a Vagabond fender eliminator and replaced the rear blinkers on mine, its not that much different.
Its like you say, just pull on each end of the wires until they come apart at the gold/bronze connector. Just be a little careful while doing this, as i ripped mine in two pieces, and had to cut and connect them together again with tape.

What you will also experience is that the bike wont have the exact same holes, screws and setup like the american bike. I think at least the blinkers is different, they are not mounted the same way as on the american bike. Therefore my stock blinkers didn't really fit that well with the fender eliminator, but its no problem.

Just try to work it out, its fun when you figure out your own solutions to things :) but of course, ask if you need any help.

Basically the two black in one and the green and brown wires are exclusively for your indicators so ignore all that for now until you have tail tidy on and are installing indicators.

The licence plate light plug into that converter and if you follow your stock licence plate light you should find an end which matches us with the plug at the other end of the converter if my memory is right

Ah, cool :) I'm from Norway. I don't have a good picture of them right now, but I bought them from Biltema, so you could buy them from there, really cheap too.

It's these ones on the norwegian site:
