Hi guys, i bought tst industries intergrated tail light and halo indicators but the connectors dont fit my bike.
I am in Australia so the connectors are different to US bikes. i didnt know
Has anyone else had this problem?
The connectors on the bike are female bullet for front and rear indicators.
The connectors on the tst parts are the male white plugs, which are a direct fit for the OEM US version
Now i need to find a harness to fit or i'll have to splice something which i dont really want to mess with atm
Don't bother, I had this issue with the tail light when I installed it. Just crack that white plastic off with some wire cutters (make sure to not damage the connector) and then tape it together, or better solder it, I think it's a spade connector in that white plug. Customer service didn't help me in my situation.
The customer service at TST is beyond outstanding. I have no doubt that if you contacted them, they'd be able to help. My guess is that they could whip up a harness for you and zap it out to you in no time.
I've bought dozens of aftermarket turn signal indicators over the years and cannot remember any that had matching connectors to OEM. It is near to impossible for any vendor to access parts schematics for all motorcycles that are manufactured in many different countries. When I go to a Yamaha dealer in the US they are unable to access any parts info about my Yamaha purchased in Mexico but manufactured in India. An order for matched electrical components is a lot more complicated than it seems. If it were possible for a vendor to provide this then you can expect a 100% price increase easily. How many riders are willing to pay that? I doubt many. As mentioned above TST customer service is a cut above most.
I don't know but it shouldn't be too hard. All you need to know is which wire is ground. If I recall, there should be three wires - one for switched power, one for turn signal power, and one ground. If you know which one is ground on the bike you should be able to figure it out. Since they are LED, if you get the wire hooked up wrong, it just won't light up.
TST now sells a conversion harness that converts between the white connectors and the bullet connectors, and the instructions that come with the kit explain how to determine which colour bullet on the converter harness goes to which colour bullet on the bike harness. They also have a video on this topic.
