Wiring Question: Eastern Beaver Rear Lighting Adapter (v2) & Backoff AYN

I'm installing these on a 2014 DL1000:
The PC-8 is the pre-2014 version, so leads were modified per TipsyMcStagger for a better fit with all wires on left side of bike. This seems to be going in okay.

The EB Rear Lighting Adapter Version 2 (RLA-V2) has 4 wires:

Version 2 - brake light wire has input (purple) and output (red) wires for BackOff type modulators. Tail light wire (blue) and ground (black) are take-offs from stock wires.

The Backoff AYN has these:
Wire Colors
Black Wire: Ground Wire
Yellow Wire: Connect Yellow Wires from Frame and Module Together
Orange Wire: Connect Orange Wires from Frame and Module Together and to a 12VDC Fused Power Source
Red Wire: Brake Light Wire
Blue Wire: Switched 12V Power Source (Running Light)
Purple Wire: Left Turn Signal (test with 12V source to verify orientation)

Brown Wire: Right Turn Signal (test with 12V source to verify orientation)
White Wire: (Optional) Hazard Mode - Switch and fuse needed (sold separately)
Green Wire: (Optional) Night Rider Mode - Switch and fuse needed (sold separately)

Questions
1) Does AYN orange go into one of the switched PC-8 fused connectors?
2) Do the reds on AYN and EB RLA-V2 connect?
3) Do the blues on AYN and EB RLA-V2 connect?
4) What is the EB RLA-V2 purple wire for?

Thanks!

2014 DL1000 Khaki

It appears from the AYN wiring diagram that the Orange is the main power to run the module's computer. It is calling for an UNswitched fused power source. You can use the PC-8, but not a switched one. So basically the fused line from the battery.

The EB purple wire is the input to a typical back off module and the red is the output to the brake light. This interrupts the factory signal to the brake light and replaces it with the modified signal from the back off module.

Since you are wiring the license plate frame in addition to the factory brake light, and I assume that you do not want to intercept/modify the factory brake light signal. Therefore, you'll want to connect the EB purple and EB red (this will pass the factory brake signal to the brake light unmodified - without this, your factory brake light will not work) together with the AYN Red (this will "copy" the factory brake signal to the AYN input for use on the license plate frame).

The blue AYN can be connected to the EB blue if you want the license plate frame to have the red "low beam" running light on. I personally left it off so that the brake light would be more noticeable. But that is personal preference.

I updated my previous response. The AYN orange line is NOT switched. Needs a fused line from the battery. Either at the PC-8 input or direct to the battery.
