    I check the two wire from plug with the voltneter , the two plugs are conected to same wire coming out of the tail light and from there they all going to another plug (3 wires) , couldn't remember the color ( I think blue, black and red), I don't know if it is OEM wires or it is some after market . Hope I explain it right, will take pic of it later

    Then you may have found the problem. Looking at the link in previous post it looks like it should have been plug and play for disconnect. The disconnect that you have does it look like the one in the link or homemade?

    The mystery continues, if they worked when you tested them on your car battery then you know the bulbs are all good. It's got to be somewhere in the wire loom or plug it'self. What baffles me is you have power when you test at the plug but when you plug it in you have no lites! Got to be a short or not making a good ground somewhere along the line. Lites should come on with the ignition on and stay on until you shut off the bike.
