    11. Dual controller module – taps into Plasma Rod (red) & harness wires (orange to blue & red to red).

    12. Wiring finished – turn ignition & test proper operation. Can trim wires a bit to reduce length & I dabbed dot of silicone on each tappet end to make water-tight (optional).

    13. Run (illuminated w/tail light).

    14. Brake (illuminated w/brakes).

    Enjoy...total cost = $156.56 + ~2-hrs time (if you take your time)...

    Also, if you don't want to invest a few hundred in LED tail light(s), they add lighting to the rear of bike. Can never have enought safety illumination from behind. Those little things are bright...
