Decided to forge ahead with my installation. I had to remove the seat and under it found a bundle of wires in a wire sleeve going back to the rear lights.
The brake wire is the white/pink wire. Once I had this wire identified, the rest was easy.
Cut the white/pink wire and spliced the red and white wire from the flasher unit along with the yellow wires of the load balancer into the two cut ends, red wire to the side going towards front of bike, white wire to the side going to the brake. There are several black ground wires in the bundle so just picked one of them and stripped a little insullation away so I could solder the black wire from the flasher unit to it. Used heat shirk tube over the cut and resoldered wires and electrical tape over the ground wire.
Tested the different options and set the one I liked (#5).
Double sided taped the flahser unit and load equalizer to the plastic tab sticking out on the right side, just above the load equalizer in stymie's picture, and strapped them down with zip ties.
Finally, put the seat back on, side covers back on, and she's ready to ride.
Very nice unit for a reasonable price and pretty simple to install, with very impressive results.
]Randy, you put the load balance inline with the module, i.e. the yellow wires attached to the two cut ends of the brake wires, and not from the bike side of the brake wire and ground as shown on the diagram that comes with the load balance unit?
Never mind I figured it out. The load balance module must be in parallel with the flasher module on an XCT and not as specified in the instructions that came with it.
