If yours is a European model, I think you have to splice into the existing number plate wires.

The colors described in the instructions apply only to the wiring of the license plate filler. You will have to splice into the correct wires on the bike. Pull a tailight/brake bulb out of a saddle bag and you can check the function of the wires with a multi-meter. Then splice the correct wires from the new piece to the corresponding wires of the bike.
DO NOT use crimp on connectors. Solder the joints and use shrink tubing where you can.

well i think ive got it right ...... so i´ll give my infomation here now.

Dark Green = Minus / Earthing
Brown/White = Plus from Ignition (on when started)
Green/Red = Brake Plus - only lighted when Brakes are applied

which means Yellow cable to Brown/white
Red Cable for Brake to Brown/White
Black Cable for Earthing to Green



The Brake Lights are found in 2 strips (left & Right )both with only 2 cables
because the joining of the 2 are too far inside the bike i spliced into only the Right side.


Hope this helps the others
Cheers
