Where/how do you tie into the wires with the 4710?
I used the .pdf from another forum.
It's simpler than it looks. Once you get in to it the pictures become clearer.
Your wiring harness runs under the seat on the right side. It's wrapped in black tape. Strip back some of the tape and you'll find the various colored wiring. The wiring on the 4710 comes with labels. Lay it out and separate the wires. Make sure you don't remove any of the small labels. They make it really easy.
The last page of the .pdf tells which colored wire on the 4710 connects to the colored wire on the harness.
The green/pink wire is the only wire that needs to be cut. The end of the green/pink from the front of the bike connects to the blue 4710 input wire and the end of the cut green/pink that goes towards the rear of the bike connects to the brown 4710 output wire.
You will need to run the additional wire to the left trunk light. The violet output wire connects to this new wire. At the left trunk light cut the white/pink wire about 2" from the light socket. Tape the cut end that goes to the front of the bike. The 2" end then connect your new wire. I removed the inner trunk lid liner and ran it thru that space to get it out of the way. Also need the trunk lid liner removed or at least loose to run the LED wiring to the trunk lid lights.
On your bike harness under the seat you'll find a white/red striped wire, a blue wire, and a blue/pink striped wire.
Tap the red input wire from the 4710 to the white/red striped harness wire.
Tap the violet input wire from the 4710 to the blue harness wire.
Tap the brown input wire from the 4710 to the blue/pink striped harness wire.
There's a couple of bolts under the seat to the frame. Connect the black (ground) wire to one of the bolts.
The red wire on the 4710 isn't used. I rolled it up and taped it so the end was covered.
There are a couple of loads that come with the 4710. Those are not needed.
Make sure you don't have any bare wires. I taped everything up into a wrapped harness, found a place under the seat under the center of the trunk, and tucked it in so there was clearance when the seat was replaced.
Did you have to run additional wires?
The .pdf pictures says to run 1 extra wire. I ran 2. The wiring to the trunk lights is just 1 wire. Since they need to operate independently of each other another wire has to be run so to split them apart. I ran 2 new wires - one to each side from the 4710.
Fish the wires from the trunk lid on tghe right side. They'll come out under the seat under the right speaker area. Be careful if using a stiff wire to run the wires so you don't poke a hole in the speaker. You'd have to work at it some to get the probe wire in the speaker but if you're anything like me if I can find a way to damage something then it will happen.
Where does the 4710 go when the installation is complete?
Under the seat. The .pdf file put it in the opening under the seat under the trunk. Just fold the wires in neatly and then watch where you put it. There's clearance under the seat.
I put mine near the opening under the trunk. The 4710 comes with a plug in "stick" that operates the flashing brake lights. When the stick is plugged in the brake lights flash 4 times then stay on. Remove the stick and the brake lights come on normally without flashing. I wanted to be able to get to the stick in case somebody has problems with flashing brake lights. Flashing brake lights are not legal in IL and some other states. I figure if stopped then I can reach thru the bottom compartment in the trunk and reach the stick to unplug it without having to remove the seat.
Can't wait for this mod....
I'm really happy with the way it turned out. It makes a big difference particularly at night.
