Turn signal wiring

o608kp

See this? Red and blue wiring shown towards right top is coming from the new turn signal, while the 1 light blue, 1 light blue with white stripe, and green wire come out the original 929rr signal. How do I wire this properly? green is ground no? the new signal doesnt have a wire for ground?

Pretty sure the blue connector is for the signals. The single wire connector not so much...get a multimeter. Doesnt matter how u splice in the signals, unless they r LEDs.

Yes the new ones, the red and blue wire are for the LED turn signals.. I would guess green is for ground?

Ground for? Not the turn signals...could b a power wire for the plate light that uses case ground. The fact that its green doesnt make it a ground on motorcycles... U need a meter or wire up the Led signals temporarily to test them out to see which wires go to where before u permantly hook em up.

Okay im pretty sure the green is a negative wire from what I've been able to read so far. But that leaves me with 2 light wires.. should i splice those two wires, twist them together and use them as a positive?

If all those wires were hooked up to 1 signal light, the single green wire could be a perm hot wire that keeps the signals on all the time (as some hondas come)

Hook up the old light and check

Yeah those turn signals just stay on all the time, and start flashing when you hit the turn signal. So since these are random led flush mount ebay lights, I just leave the green cable alone at this point and connect the other two?

if we assumed that the green was a permanent hot wire, the two light blue wires, one with the stripe.. which one would connect into the blue wire and to the red wire for the new led signal?
