...and Install The Heavycycles Taillight :D


1.) Remove stock taillight:



a. Insert a small screwdriver into middle hole of license plate lamp. Push forward and up with screwdriver to release taillight housing spring clip.
b. Lift rear of taillight housing up and slide housing assembly rearward, away from fender.



1. Taillight connector
2. Taillight bulb socket assembly
3. Retaining clip
4. Mounting tabs
5. License plate lamps








2.) Install Heavycycles LED Taillight:

a. Mate the 4-position taillight connector (only 3 wires to connector) to 4-position socket on main wiring harness.
b. If you purchased a Stage 2 light, mate the (two) 2-position turn signal connectors from new taillight to the appropriate sockets on main wiring harness, paying attention to connector colors. (White is left, black is right)
c. If you purchased the Stage 2 light with pass-through connectors, mate connectors from turn signals to appropriate sockets extending from Heavycycles’ LED Taillight, paying attention to right and left turn signal connector colors. (White is left, black is right)
d. Make sure all wires and connectors are clear of taillight before final installation. There is enough room around the sides of the taillight recess for this. Use wire ties if needed. Be sure that wires will not be pinched.
e. Insert tabs on forward bottom edge of taillight housing under lip of taillight opening in fender. Carefully push taillight housing forward and then down until spring clip on rear of housing locks into place.


MAKE SURE YOU TEST TAILLIGHT FOR PROPER OPERATION BEFORE RIDING MOTORCYCLE. VISIBILITY IS A MAJOR CONCERN FOR MOTORCYCLISTS. FAILURE TO HAVE PROPER LIGHT OPERATION COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.


5.) Test proper operation of taillights

a. Test running light functions.
b. Test brake light functions.
c. Test turn signal functions.
