    Brand new here. searched forums could find what i was looking for.
    Looking for a basic wiring diagram. For brake and turn signals.
    Bike is a rats nest of wires starting from scratch.
    Front and rear brake, rear brake light and turn signals on same bulb.
    I do have front turn signals. Would like to use a basic flasher circuit.
    Turn signal switches are in handle bars.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    What I really meant to ask for is a non-factory simple layout. I may be simple mind but following all that wiring through those schematic is not easy. Does anyone a have something that is simple like the knee bone connects to the thigh bone the thigh bone connects to the..... I do understand basic circuits. Hot and ground should run from the switches and lights (turn and brake), Just not sure how to tie it together after that.

    A switched hot wire goes to turn signal switches and both brake light switches. The wires from the turn sw's goes to the flasher and then on to the turn signals. Wires from brake light switches goes to brake light.

    This may be too basic, but that's it in nutshell. Good luck
