Hi all,

I just got a HotBodies Undertail today for my 2000 Gixxer 750. I just did the trunk/frame mods and was ready to start wiring it. Problem is they didnt include ANY wiring diagrams! Then I realize theres only 2 wires for each of the 2 brake/running light LED clusters. My stock bulb tail lights have 3 (2 for running lights and 3rd for Braking filament I assume). I go to the HotBodies website and the only instructions they have is the same useless ones I already have. I click on the link that shows pictures of how bright the LEDs look. It only shows pictures of running lights and blinkers. I am thinking the undertail doesnt have brake lights! Hotbodies is closed till morning, but my bike is dismantled outside on my patio.

If anyone has ANY info or ideas I would be very grateful.

The undertail is the "alteeza" GP model and has 2 combo light clusters, each cluster has 2 wires for the turn signals and 2 wires for the red section. Is there anyway to wire it so I can get the red section to serve as both a running light and a brighter brake light with frying something out. Or would one of those LED animator boxes allow me to do it?

Please Help ...TIA

Dont quote me on this, but you may find out that you have to connect both positive wires to the positive LED wire.

I just ordered my undertail from IDEALCYCLE. The thing looks AWESOME & you use your existing sockets. They send LED bulbs that plug directly in.

Good Luck!!

Thanx for the replies. I talked to Hot Bodies and got it handled. They dont use the ground wire in the brake/running light connector. All lights in the under tail share the grounds in the turn signal connectors. I just got it all back together today and IMHO it looks tight. This was my first undertail install and it took me a hell of a lot longer than they estimated. If its your first undertail, I found cutting through the welds on the cargo net hooks with a hacksaw, then using a chisel and hammer (angled down and forward in the cut) with 3-4 whacks took the welds clean off the frame.

Thanx again for the input *cookies* and post up your pix when you get your tail on, Id like see the IDEALCYCLE undertail.
