I feel your pain, Bro. I had the same troubles when I installed a digital tach on my Ducati. The problem is that the color codes vary from manufacturer to manufaturer!! :cuss I do know this much: When it comes to Yamaha, brown is positive, black is ground. If you look in the back of most owner's manuals there is a schematic diagram. I hope that helps. :roll:

i finished wiring up the right side, when i found to my dismay, the left side has different colors :cuss so then i was like, **** it, ill put the right side back together and deal with the left later on. aparantly the flushies that the moto shop recomended to my wife stick out to far on the inside and run into the air box (there is an indent, but not deep enough) so now tomorrow when i get home i either gotta mod the flushies, or buy a new right side fender cause i cut the shit outta it :cuss . dunno what to do yet, i still like the way the flushies look though. shit im still mad about that.

A $5 analog multimeter from Radio Shack would tell you what you want to know.
i didnt know radio shack had a multimeter that cheap.

a simple 12 volt test light would have been enough to find out this wiring problem. but a multimeter does wonders.

You focused on the wrong part of the message BUT I meant to type $15, I believe that is the cheapest one.
i wrench for a living and i spent way more than that on my multimeter. i spent over $6k for a modis system from snap-on. i know the price sounds ridiculous but its more than just a digital multimeter, its also a diagnostic scanner for obd1 and obd2, 4 channel color graphic meter/lab scope, and a shit load of diagnostic troubleshooting info stored in it. it saves time from going to the shops desk top pc for information. for me its not just a multimeter its a money maker. for home use i just have another snap-on multimeter called the vantage, it got demoted to home use since i got the modis.

Good for you. I'm an electronic technician and the guy doesn't need to go out and buy a top of the line Fluke to troubleshoot a wiring problem that a $15 meter from Radio Shack can do. My only point was that he could pick up a cheap little tool to help him out, that's it.

Thanks for the idea fellas,
ive got a digital multy thingy, but i left the book
that tells me how to work it at home in California
:roll: Its got so many little switches and stuff writen
in spanish or alien symbols, i absolutly hate electronic
problems! i figured out the right side wires, now my big
problem is trying to make room for them without cutting
my airbox.

It's the 1st thing that I pull out when dealing with any wiring... Even if I have the color codes I'm going to test each wire... 10 minutes of testing can save you big $ if someone wired the wiring harnes wrong...

green is signal line positive. blue is running light. brown is signal line positive for other side. I just rewired Watsen LEDs, so I know. I snipped the blue line on both sides, but there were green/brown wires for the regular signal. good luck
