Does the wiring from the individual TS units go all the way (under the fender) to the R/B/T without any other connectors?
yes. The last connection is right before the wires go into and under the fender.

Right, the RBT module is under the seat just before the rear fender correct?

Yeah, I am not looking for money but didnt want to ship it to the Netherlands either! That is why i asked about location.

Let me know if you want a pigtail. I can make one up tonight/tomorrow....as long as it is the 6 wire connector. i just need you to measure and tell me how long to make the wires coming off of it that will be going to your new light.

I thought you both suggested that I plug into the wires before they go into the TSM.

No need to get to the TSM for the wiring changes being discussed - The TSM, located under the battery,
has wiring up to just-before the fender. That is where the R/B/T Module is located. The TSM wires have
a connector that plugs into the R/B/T Module. Then the R/B/T Module output has 3 connectors that mate
up to the wiring that goes to the rear of the fender...

The TSM wires INCOMING AT THE R/B/T Module (under the seat) is the point of making
THE NEW CONNECTIONS to reach the rear of the fender.

The "pigtail thing" is a porition of a wiring harness that has a connector on one end and un-terminated wires on the other end that you can use to connect to something else....ie....your new light. So you plug the connector into your bike's harness and then you can connect the loose wires to whatever. This way you dont have to cut the wires on your bike's harness to tie wires in.

Funny, I pulled open my old Harley wiring box to get a crimper for a friend to borrow for his 69' Camaro and I took a peak just now and this pigtail already has 3 of the 5 wires you need.

Once upon a time I was into wiring stuff on sportys......

I would not cut those wires though.....

Connector 7A is where my pigtail plugs into. You could sell that RBT module for some $

Okay Im starting to understand better what needs to be done.

If i can find and buy the right connector and figure out how to crimp wires, i could make the pigtail myself. Any resources you recommend for me to do that?

Thanks.

Is this what I need?
I asked them if it does indeed come with the crimp terminals, and if it does, it seems like ill have evrything I need.
Do you have information on the wire gauge I need? I have some 16 awg wire.
I know I can use larger wire gauge, but not smaller.
Thanks for everything.
