Ok first off let me apologize for posting up a question that has probably been answered. I tried the search engine but dont have time to read hours worth of threads to find the answer.

I tried to wire up the Raw taillight tonight and am having an issue. I cant get the brake lights to work. It seems like I am already on the high lights when I turn it on. The signals blink dim not brighter. If I squeeze the lever the brakes dont do anything.

I hooked the red and black brake signal wire from the module to the green/yellow wire in the harness and the orange wire to the brown wire from the harness.

What am I doing wrong? Anybody have any tips I can try?

Nothin like going straight to the source!:rolleyes:
Link below takes you to our instructions. HOWEVER, some of our distributors substitute their own controllers so wiring may be different. If you purchased direct from us, these directions should help.

I did purchase direct from you guys. I looked on your website but didnt find a link to download the instructions. you guys should put that link in the product description. It would make it easier.

Red thanks for the video. Unfortunately it doesnt help. I cant tell from the video which wires are hooked up to what. Thats where Im having my problems. Im going to check out the Raw directions and see if I can get this thing fixed today.

I have everything wired up right. But as soon as I turn on the key the taillight is at full brightness. The turn signals blink dimmer but the brakes dont work at all. Is it possible I have a bad controller?

edit: If I wire in a dual element circuit between the green/yellow & brown and wire to the orange of the controller I have working brake lights, but my signals are very dim when the blink.

I guess add this to the list of sh!tty luck I have had with buying things off the internet for this bike.

I did a variation of the RSS front signals. I used the drugz circuits though. I didn't like them and decided to switch to the dual elements. After I cut the drugz out and wired in one of the duals that side started working properly in the rear. So I guess it had something to do with the way I had the fronts wired causing issues in the rear. Which I never would have noticed if I would have changed the front first or left the rear alone.

Ah, interesting... I'll add this to my beginner's guide somehow after I figure out to word it... so the drugz somebody affected the whole line. Wonder if it put a heavier resistance on the circuit causing it to drag down the rear. Anyways, thank you for the heads up, appreciate it!

JMart... it is a little of a pain in the ass but Raw does have the install direction on there web site... it is under their contact listing... you may want to just go and double check the work on the rear... I was one of the first and all I did was follow their directions and it was really easy. Good luck... you will find all their directions under the contact listing.

I can see what Jmart is saying, the instructions should be easier to find, not very convenient to find them under contacts, I would expect to find points of contact under there not instructions.

So you ok now Jmart and going to keep the bike a little longer lol.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know our website needs work and i've been saying that we are working on it forever. But what a pain in the a$$ it is dealing with these web design people. But if they don't get it right soon, I have no problem going back to jail.:rolleyes:

I hear that... still love the product and get alot of compliments having them... With the SoCal WCFR we joke around that the stock rear lights look like the aftermarket part since most of us have the Raw Stealth lights. You all need to work on a rear fender that will fit over the stealth lights and goes down a little lower... kind of like L&M did... think you will get a large number of orders... I would get the L&M fender if it would have worked with your light set up... just saying.

Somewhere on this forum is a thread about how to lower the stock fender by making a cut, notch & re-weld to the frame under the fender. Did it to our bike and made a world of difference. Now when the 360 goes on, we'll make a fender for that.:D

Well I am not much for cutting on my bike... the guys that I ride with have done this and yes it does look good but would rather go with a easier option for those of us that do not have the equipment or ability to do this to the bike.
