Description
 
Installation Guidelines:
This resistor modification will act as the lamp if the lamp/bulb or entire instrument cluster is removed. Install the jumper cable included with the GREEN end connected to a switched B+ such as the coil B+ terminal. Attach the BLUE end to the D+ BLUE wire as part of the front engine harness. There are a number of point this can be done. Depending on your specific configuration, choose one of the following.
1. At the voltage regulator plug BLUE wire with the attached BLACK Posi Tap.
2. Connect the BLUE wire of the resistor wire to the terminal on the front engine harness BLUE wire white plug. This terminal would have a blue wire from the main chassis harness connected here (which used to terminate at the instrument cluster generator light).
3. To the spare D+ terminal on a stock diode board. Original / stock style diode boards have two D+ terminals, and only one is used on BMW motorcycles. The spare terminal on the diode board is part of the same rotor energizing circuit. Regardless of which of the three you choose, you must disconnect the original blue wire connection to the chassis harness (typically a white plug under the tank) which goes to the generator light, for your charging system to function.

Cable ties are included to secure the wire and take up any slack in its installation. This installation must be handled with care and precision with no bare wires or threat of fouling due to vibration.

WARNING Incorrect installation of this alternator modification can cause damage to the printed instrument wiring connection board, reduce reliability, or cause a short circuit under the gas tank. This modification may not work if there is a failure in your wiring circuit depending on where you install the resistor. Wiring failures often occur at the point of connection from the lamp to the printed wiring circuit.
Our resistor modification should not be installed across the GEN lamp socket wiring itself. Installing it on the GEN lamp socket is risky because the printed circuit material is very fragile and is easily damaged
