How to add hazard lights and high beam flash to pass function to your 06-12 R6

I wanted to add the hazard lights and flash to pass function to my 08 R6R, but there was no way of doing it easily.

Thanks to Marco77 for telling me about the European model R6R that comes with those exact options.

The install went easily. The only mod that needs to be done, is to pull one pin from plug and tap that wire into another in that same plug.

Here's a quick write up about the install:

Tools needed:

Wire strippers
Wire cutters
Pick
Heat shrink
Soldering gun
60/40 solder
Zip tie


First thing was to grab a left side control for the European 08 R6R from eBay.

1: When I received it, everything matched up to the U.S. version except one wire. Which happens to be the flash to pass wire. (Sorry, I don't have a picture of the harness before the mod.). This is what it looks like:




2: Pull back on the rubber wire covering enough to allow you to cut and solder the wire without having any restrictions. Put a zip tie around the end of the sleeve tightly to hold it in place. This is assuming you want a factory look when complete. If you don't care about the look since its covered by plastic, then just cut the rubber sleeve back some.

3: Look at the top of the plug and you'll see 5 wires. The top is the side that has the release button.
From left to right, the wire colors are:
Green
yellow
white w/ yellow stripe
brown w/white stripe
red w/ yellow stripe

4: you will need to pull out the white w/ yellow stripe wire from the plug. To do this, Look at the face of the plug (the part that fits inside the other half) and you'll see all of the pins. Use a pick to move the locking tab away from the pin. Once the tab is away from the pin, pull the wire and pin out from the other end.

5: Now that you have the white w/ yellow stripe wire removed, cut the pin off and strip some of the rubber exposing the wire inside.

6: Now grab the yellow wire. You need to strip a small section of rubber from it to allow you to solder on the wire that you just cut. There's no need to cut the wire off, just use a pair of nice wire strippers or a razor blade to slice a small piece of rubber coating off. You only need about a 3/8" or 1/2" size of stripped wire to work with.

7: Now take the white w/ yellow stripe wire and feed it in through the yellow wire that you just stripped to get a good connection there.

8: Grab your soldering gun and 60/40 solder and solder the wire connection that you just made.

9: Now that you have that soldered, you gotta wrap it up to protect it and to keep it from shorting out in case it touches any metal. Look at the plug to see where the yellow wire is located in it. Pull that pin out of the plug the same way you did the other one.

10: With the pin removed, you now have a way to slide some heat shrink over the soldered joint. Slide the heat shrink on and heat it up well enough to shrink it completely. It burns easily, so don't sit there with torch on it. A basic lighter, grill lighter, or mini torch, will work just fine.

11: Now you can put the yellow wire back in the same spot that it came out of in the plug. (In case you forgot, it goes in on the side of the green wire.)

12: If you pulled back on the wire covering and zip tied it to hold it in place, you can now cut the zip tie and pull the covering back in place. If you cut the covering instead of pulling it back, skip this step.

13: Plug the control harness into the bikes harness and test out the function.

The hazard lights are plug-n-play. You don't need to do anything to it.

Now you should have hazard lights and flash to pass function on top of the rest of the normal controls.

Here's some pics of the finished harness:

The empty hole in the middle is where the white w/yellow stripe wire is located.

Thanks, it was an easy mod. I'll have to grab a vid of the flashers when I get back from the vacation.

you said " The hazard lights are plug-n-play. You don't need to do anything to it. "
where does the hazard light plug into?

You unplug the light switch control from the harness take off the old one......mount the new one and plug it inn to the harness that's all you have to do...but if you want to use the flash to pass button the you need to do a little mod which is explained in this thread.
