Question for Greywolf -- lighting

Good morning all and I hope you had great Christmas!

I received this light bar from my son for christmas admore light bar. I want to buy a EB Brake/Tail/signal adapter for my 09 Wee.

The Admore has six wires and the instructions says:
Blue/red - Tail lights
Purple - brake
Green - RT Turn
yellow - Lt Turn
Black - ground

*For Canbus equipped bikes with a single brake tail light wire so twist together and connect red/blue to switched source. connect purple to single brake wire.
*For Canbus equipped bikes with 3 wire (Tail/brake/ground) in tail section, connect blue wire to tail light wire, Purple to brake light wire and red directly to Positive battery terminal.


First! Is the 09 Weestrom canbus?
Can I use the EB adapter and which one?
Last - what the hell and I doing here? I seem to have a brain block!!

Greywolf seems to have ALL the answers we could ever need here!

No Canbus. You need version 1 of the EB adapter. Connect the wires as follows.

Code:
Admore                              EB adapter

Blue/red - Tail lights     -        White
Purple - brake             -        Red
Green - RT Turn            -        Blue
yellow - Lt Turn           -        Yellow
Black - ground             -        Black

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

It's easy. The link you provided at Eastern Beaver had a link to wire colours. Extras lists what I provided.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

Greywolf, What you say is true! I Just NOW noticed that, thanks. I was confused by the number of wires. While I have you here, what EB Headlight would you recommend? I was thinking of H4 Lo Beam Cut Adapter with Barswitch $43.95.
I want to add the adventure tech Cree 10 Watt LED Lights with Choice of Flood or Spot Lens. Not sure whether flow or spot would be best. I mainly want these for daytime "See ME" lights and want to free up 50 watts.

That light kit has wiring and switching options listed with your first link. I see no need to go to EB for additional stuff.

The EB thing I was interested in was a way to Cut Out one of the lights for free up wattage so I could run the Cree lights all the time.

So you want to cut out a headlight and run the Cree lights along with one headlight? You don't need to do that unless you are also running heated gear. The Cree lights don't draw that much.

That is exactly my problem. Riding here in the NW requires that if you are riding year round, you need heated jacket liners as well as gloves
