Thanks john. I do have them but it's lacking detail info.Great part and it did speed up my build but they need and should let people know how this unit work and what it does.I have everything working but can't seam to figure out the tail light .I would think that the tail light would come on after the bike is run so it's not pulling power when turning the engine over but I could be wrong.

It seems that way doesn't it but that's the way they do it now..It's the reason I went with all led's so there wouldn't be any more than a couple of amps drain..

On my harness we wire the light circuit through the starter relay so the lights cut out only while cranking......Not sure if we are the only one to do that or not but a standard starter relay allows this function

I think that's the way I'm going to wire my lights
I don't want to kill my battery or put a big load on it every time I start my bike.

If your going to wire up a bike from scratch , I would definitely put a switch so you could turn
your headlight and tail off..especially if you run incandecant bulbs..there's noting worse that being stuck somewhere with a low battery and having a 6 to 8 amp drain on your battery and cant turn the thing off while your trying to crank..
