Thanks guys and for future reference. I called my buddy who is a yamaha mech and he told me that in '05 yamaha wired an extra aux control into the headlight bucket because yamaha was receiving so many complaints from the mech's about what a bitch it is to install the passing lamps! Their solution was the extra aux wiring in the headlight bucket. Here is the kicker though, yamaha will not send you the other side of the connector. You have to buy a genuine star accessories light bar and then it's plug and play.

Thanks for that additional info on the aux wiring beginning in 2005!

Worked like a charm. Saddled to blue on the SUV harness and now passing lamps
Only come On with engine power running. They will not come on till the motor is running.

Went ahead and wired the factory switch on the cobra bar as an added means of turning them off.

I'll post pics shortly. Thanks for everything guys!


you can by the connector here http://www.cycleterminal.com/index.html

Thanks Erb! Found out that aux circuit is its own circuit with its own fuse so I'm satisfied with the saddle connector for now!

I was gonna do the same, but decided I didn't want to change the integrity of the harness. Also if, and a big if, if I decided to go with a Fi management system, one of the power commanders uses that plug for power.

Think it was this one, the one with ribs
Sumitomo MT90 series
2 pin MT .090 - 2.3mm Male and Female locking connector.

Hard to tell from his pics on here (clinic), but this place has a good assortment, and shipping is very reasonable. Think the 3 were just a bit over 2 bucks to ship

Re:PAssing lamp wiring HELP!!!!!!! 4 Years, 4 Months ago  
Hey I have a question about this one. I just got a set from what appears to be a 2005+ and had the plug. It is used so when I got it the guy included both sides of the white plug. So now since I have a '99 I don't know where the two wires to what on the bike. From the plug there is one white and one black which comes from the on/off switch on the left passing light. Any ideas? Sorry I don't mean to highjack this thread.

By the paperwork with the lamps, it's red with yellow stripe for on at all times, yellow wire for high beam only, and green wire for low beam only. Black is the ground.

O.K. Chefturner, Where is the fuse for that circuit located? Mine has no power to it and all fuses in the box are in tact.

If you are speaking of the white connector in the head light. It is controlled by the ignition module, thus the bike has to be running.
