New LED brake light for Brutale 800RR

Hi all,

I had a cracked rear LED brake light so decided to replace it with an aftermarket clear LED unit (not one with a blinker). The unit I received came with a different connector to what is on my bike. See attached pictures - white connector is the new unit, black connector is the old unit. Two questions:

1) Is there a conversion cable I can buy? If not:
2) I will need to cut the connectors and solder them together. Problem is the connector on the bike has blue, green and brown wires whilst the replacement unit has black, red and yellow. In terms of conversion is it:

Brown = Red
Blue = Yellow
Green = Black

Advice is much appreciated. Thanks

Well.... you could visit Motorcycle Terminals, Connectors, and Wiring Accessories and order a new connector to match the one on your bike....

OR, cut off/remove the connector from your old light and install it on the new one.
That's what I would do, with solder and heat shrink.
Don't have to mess with extracting terminals or crimping new ones.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

What year is your B3 800RR?

Did a wiring diagram come with the new tail light assembly?

What color are the wires on the original assembly?

Thanks for the replies. It's a 2015 and the new unit did not come with a wiring diagram. The color of the wires on the original assembly are brown, blue and green. Seems like MV must have changed the connector on the later models.

MV changes connectors and wire colors at whim. I would do some tests with a spare battery to see which wire lights up which light and then connect accordingly.

According to the wiring diagram for the ABS & Non ABS 2015 Brutale 800 the three wires going to the rear light are Green, Orange and Blue! So wiring diagram of limited use as @silentservice says.

However again according to wiring diagram Blue is ground, so I'd start there, multimeter and see which of the other two shows voltage when brake pedal is pressed. Once you have worked out which wire from the loom does what then as was suggested spare battery, apply power to each pin on new light to see what lights-up, then cut and splice wires to match.

Simples - just glad I'm not doing it. )

HTH

I am in the same boat. I bought the integrated tail light (with indicators) for my F3 2018 from Designcorse.
The website clearly said it would need manual splicing as the 2018 F3 connectors is different from earlier models apparently.

My F3 has the same connector as your Brutale has, and the tail light is the same connector as the one you got.
I bought a bunch of connectors that matches the stock F3 connector and will fix it up when I have aquired some LED indicator resistance pieces. Mostly because getting to the tail and indicator connectors is a right damn hassle, so I might as well be fixing them both at the same time.

Interesting. Does your new light have different colored wires to the original light as well?
