One of the wires in the connector that you posted a picture of is hot when the switch is on. I don't remember which one it is right off the bat. Do you have a test lamp? If not get one. It'll help you greatly.

A bit wide of the original topic, but I just picked up an '18 XT. Didn't see anything on the EB website for setting up the headlight relays for the new model. Anybody know differently?

Just 3 wires for the tail light. The dim running light has a positive wire (hot when bike is on), the brake light has a positive wire (hot when you brake), and one ground wire that services both the running light and brake functions, as well as ALL rear lighting. The license plate light shares the running light positive wire since they function in the same manner. Right and left turn signals each get their own deticated positive wire.

These are all your rear lighting wires.

I love this forum. I searched for that trigger connector for an hour and figured that someone would have posted where it was. The install photos were most helpful. The PC-8 is installed and connected farkles are happy. Thanks.
