The white wire will go hot with the ignition switch as it is for auxiliary tail lights. It will also go hot if the ignition switch is put in the P position.

From Extras

1 - Remove seat and the rear carrier. Remove the two small side bolts and swing the tail section with fender and license plate up. Rest it on the top of the bike so that you can access the rearmost 6 pole connector.

2 - Unplug the connector and plug in the Kit’s two connector halves. Run the long wire bundle up the inside of the underseat tray and under the steel cross brace.

3 - Connect any auxiliary brake lights to the red wire.

4 - Connect any auxiliary tail or running lights to the white wire

5 - Connect any auxiliary signal lights to either the yellow (left) or blue (right) wires.

6 - Connect an alarm signal wires to the blue and yellow wires.

7 - The black wire is ground and can be used with any of the above which also need a ground

8 = You should take care that those wires in the adaptor which won’t be used are safely wrapped with tape or otherwise will not short out. I like to install a Posi-Lock on any loose wire which will be live but not used.

9 - Test that your additional lighting works by turning on the ignition key and pressing the rear brake lever.

10 - Reinstall all parts and tie up all wires neatly.
