PC-8 hook up help

everything going well, except I can't find the rear brake light switch connector. I have a black and white single blade connector on the right, and a 3 prong connector on the left. I can't find a 2 prong connector like came with the pc8. Do I need to lift the tank? Thanks in advance for the help. Dave

Dave, If I remember correctly it is about 1/2 the length of the seat on the right side of the bike. It is behind a frame tube and really well hidden. I hope this helps.

The connector is under the rear of the tank. If your bike has the coolant reservoir under the rear of the tank, it is even harder to access as it is under the reservoir.

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

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks Phil, I think that's the one to add a brake light, I've already done that one. Thank you Greywolf, I can see and get 1 finger on it. I'll pull the tank and overflow this weekend and see if that helps.
Thank you both, Dave
