hot bodies under tail to.....

Hey there

New to this site
recently bought a race 02 rc51 and trying to convert it to being street legal. running in to lots of wiring headaches which is not my strong suite ouch. first off I bought a hot bodies under tail which doesn't fit for crap to race fairings. anyone have a stock tail for sale?? two is there a video somewhere on the best way to connect these wires to the harness? pretty sure these has been done a million times over. the hotbodies piece is pretty crap as it doesn't come with much things to install anything.

thanks for all the help and guidance in advance

cheers

You can use these pictures for a guide of where to cut the old tail. I used a Dremel and did it without removing the old undertail:

And here is what I used for wiring this is the Bestem wires:

And here for the stock wires:

those links don't work. btw mounting the under tray is not the hard part. i have a race tail on the bike which doesn't fit for shit. I know one guy that has a stock bike and I'm gonna try and get him to bring his bike and see how well it fits before purchasing a oem tail section.

big question is how do it connect the two brake lights/turn signals? what kind of connectors should I get? thats gonna be the hard part. anyone have any pics?
