    combo1.JPG Me again....

    Did the above and flashers work fine - but that's it.

    No brake light
    No rear light
    No number plate light

    I realize that both flashers - brake and rear light along with number plate have seperate grounds.

    The unit I purchased has only the one ground. Does this mean tying all my existing grounds to the one
    on the new unit?

    Did you test prior to fitting?

    Did a direct hookup to battery (removed from bike) all worked fine.

    Then all you should need to do is match the wires up. Ground is ground.

    As Triumph seem to be occasionally a bit haphazard with the wiring (esp rear indicators) - I would suggest you beg/steal/borrow a multimeter if you don't have one.

    Have a wiring diagram in colour with labels.
