Question Turn Signal Buzzer

I'm installing a buzzer for the turn signals so I don't forget to turn them off. I need to get access to the front signal wires. They appear to come out of the signals and go toward the headlights. I need to access both of them when they are close to each other. Has anyone taken the front assembly apart? I would like to know the easiest way to get access to the wires. Thanks.

There is a large connector under a black rubber bonnet on the left side of the fairing. There is a light green and a black wire side by side in that connector. The Lg is the right turn signal hot and the B is the left turn signal hot. Ground is black with a white stripe. That's on the 650 diagram and I believe the 1000 is the same but you didn't specify.

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

I have the Wee. Wow, thanks for the to the point info and quick response. You de man!! Question: You say bonnet--rubber protector? Does the left fairing need to be removed to access the harness?

Disconnecting the turn signal wires

I have an '06 DL650 and recently installed some different turn signals on them.

If you just want to disconnect your turn signal wires from the power source to splice in your buzzer, there's a black, plastic rectangular jack that connects the two wires. To disconnect the two wires, follow these 2 steps:

1)First, give yourself some working room. If you want to disconnect the left turn signal, turn the handle bars to the right. If you look to the inside where the wire runs out of the turn signal and runs towards that headlight area you mentioned, you should see the black rectangular plastic jack I mentioned above.
2)To disconnect the jack, you should see kind of a pronounced flap on one side of the connector that you carefully have to lift outward while pulling the other half of the connector out of it. Be careful to not pull this flap lever too high or you might break it, and you might need this connection in the future. It might take a bit of coordination to hold that flap slightly up while you pull the other half out of it. You also might need to work it from side to side to break it loose, or, you might get lucky and it will slide right out for you.

As for how you buzzer splices into this connection, that is up to you to figure out. I ordered a special connection with my turn new flush mount turn signals that allowed me to jack right into one side of that same black plastic OEM jack which made for no soldering or wire splicing. Nice.

If you need to remove the turn signal after disconnecting the wire, there’s a nut and washer which threads directly onto the portion of the turn signal which sticks just on the inside wall of the fairing where that black wire runs out . Mine came off easily with a crescent wrench. Wasn’t that tight.

Hope this helps.

It's easier to get at the area if the chin piece under the headlights then the left fairing cowl is removed. See http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=10...&search=buzzer for some good info.
