    I believe if you're replacing a filament lamp with an LED, a resistor is required

    When you say both sides to you mean left and right rear / left and right front? Unfortunately I don't have the mounts for the front iRides just yet so I'll only be doing the rear pins for now. Think that'll cause issue?

    This was my understanding as well. I guess I'll get a few resistors to have on the ready. Thanks!

    As stated on the purchase pages, the mPins have built in resistors, and the iRides come with them. ;)

    Here is a pic of the m-pins I received. They do not have the resistor wired into them, as I've seen in other pictures around the internet. I'm guessing I was shipped the non-resistor variety? Any issues attaching the spare two iRide resistors to these?

    From the purchase page and stated above "Comes with built-in onboard resistor."

    Yes that’s what I mean. It didn’t cause issues for me. Install the rear ones and did not install the front ones until several weeks later. The regular front blinkers worked fine in the meantime. I think the circuits are separated front versus back, based on the wiring diagram. The Irides did ship with resistors as Todd says, but I didn’t end up using them.

    Got my fender eliminator on today. Anyone with a step by step guide to wiring up Rizoma lights? TIA :)

    Sandy, see the first post of this thread, and you'll either need a test light or the wiring diagram under the DOWNLOADS tab above.

    A little help please....
    My wiring harness has 3 purple (ground), 3 yellow (running), 1 blue (left turn), 1 green -- unknown and 2 red wires (both red operate the right turn signal).

    The Rizoma iRides have black, red -- which go into the resistor, right? then there is the green and white wires. I assume the green is the brake and the Rizoma white goes to the Guzzi Tech yellow. Correct?

    Why do I have two red wires and only 1 green?

    I've tried a lot of combinations. Cannot get the running and brake lights to function on the Rizomas. Turn signals good. LED licence plate good.

    From the first post here, now below. Test the harness once plugged in with a turn signal or a test light. You'll have to crimp/split one of the wires when needed for both. We routinely do this at the shop. ;)

    Yellow: Running & tag (split)
    Red: Brake
    Blue: L turn
    Green: R turn
    Purple: ground

    Yes, I have read and been following the original post.

    I was just looking for further guidance.

    No. I posted the same question on another forum. Another member got your kit, had the same issue. He gave me the walk through instructions about the one green and two red wires.

    Sorry Sandy, so I see what happened now. The red is the brake light (2 in the harness for the Rizoma turn/stops) or they should be wired together for the single LED brake light option for v2.1 & 2. Green is the right turn signal. That correct? I made the changes above and in the first post here.

    It's difficult to make a single harness fit all of the LED offerings we make.

    It took me nearly all day Sunday, but I am very pleased that I successfully installed the new lights! With some advice here, on FB, and by a friend's texting helpful hints. However, I solder & did the heat shrink all on my own -- I've never done that stuff before. Very cool to learn a new skill :cool:

    Here is the breakdown of GT harness wiring kit to the iRides.

    From the GuzziTech harness: purple is ground, yellow is running, both red wires are right turn, blue is left, and green needs to be split for the brake. Matched to the iRide from Rizoma: black is ground, white is running, green is the turn signals, and red is the brake.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Now onto the GT 2n1 exhaust, because that stock exhaust is ugly as poo now!
