So my current tail light (motodynamic) has an issue. I've been away from this stuff for a while, and couldn't find anything but old threads. Is there a current "go-to" solution for these on the 06-07 bikes?

  • It would be nice to keep the brake light flashing option
  • It would also be nice to keep the sequential turn signal option.

Anyone make a premium version of these lights, or is motodynamic pretty much my only option?

Just to close this thread out I had some time to look at this with a meter. As it turns out my tail light was fine. The culprit was a bad connection at an OEM connector oddly enough. Guess I'll start adding dielectric grease to the R6 connectors as well. Originally figured it stayed dry enough, guess not...

In an automotive environment, either solder or/and use automotive grade connectors. (NO QUICK TAPS / SPLICERS) I cringe every time I look at other people's wiring jobs on bikes and automobiles.

Yes sir, delphi I believe. The cheap ass ones really suck. I know, I bought a bunch of 2,3,4 wire models.

Weather pack connectors or not I still put dielectric grease on them on my Jeep / Supermoto.

This was the factory Yamaha connector causing the problem. My connection behind it was soldered / double heat shrinked.

Never knew there was a connector. The dipstick that owned mine must've cut it off for the "fender eliminator" kit; replaced it with twisties, electrical tape. 😖
