Here goes. Okay, I have searched the tech forum for the answer and came close more than once to an EXACT answer but always a brides maid and never a bride (and that ain't good enough)... I know the Right Turn Signal wiring is flipped on, what the '03-'08 Vic's. I also know the ACM is more fragile than 80 year old bakelite... I can see that the right signal's wires are opposite to the plug off the main harness.

What I am asking is this: are the wires coming off the main harness into the headlight bucket backwards (Black hot, Blue/Red ground) or are the turn signal's wires backwards? wac

I have used the plug from the left signal light to solder onto my new signal on the left and want to do the same for the right side. Want to get this beast buttoned up and ready to ride. :ride:

I know, I know, redundancy of questions is frowned upon by various members but I'm ready for the fallout. ;)

My wires were backwards on the light side . Mine is a 2013 and still has this right side issue . I don't believe this issue stops at 2008 ....

I don't have the answer what I do have is stop being cheap and go to the auto store or walmart and buy a volt meter or a test light. You really should not do wiring with out one.

If your going to stay cheap and you have a bulb around like this solder one wire to the middle end of bulb that will be your hot wire. Solder a wire to the side of the base that will be your ground.
Now you can test power on your wires

Well, since I have a bad ACM w/no power to the right side I don't believe I have the ability to check, VJ. I have a volt meter as well as a continuity tester which I've used on the rest... Thanks for asking. Hence the reason for my post. Looking to see if there was an actual DEFINITIVE answer, which, apparently, there is NOT.

You gotta relax a little, VJ, as there are a lot of members on this forum who might have all the infinite knowledge and experience as you. As I've read many posts all over this forum, I know I'm not the first to make this particular suggestion to you. CHILL dude. cheers

P.S. All four bulbs are good and have been for some time...ummm, yeah, I checked them, the fuse and ran the signal diagnostics before posting this. Again, 'preciate the help.

That's a great trick. I'll put that into my memory bank.

Thanks, VJ

When I cut my stock plug off the OEM blinker on the right side , to solder it to my new LED blinker , I had to reverse the wires so the polarity would be correct . The factory harness in the headlight was correct . The wires on the OEM blinker were the same colors as the harness , just reversed at the plug .... No idea why Victory did this .
