Where To Connect 2 Extra Wires From 6-Way Connector On Motorcycle Trailer To 4 Wires On Motorcycle


i have six wires on an escapade motorcycle trailer. there are only 4 wires coming off the relay on the motorcycle, do i need to run another fused red and black accessory wire to battery for the other 2 wires?

I looked up the Escapade motorcycle trailer and it showed the six wire colors as being:

White - Ground
Brown - Taillights
Yellow - Left Turn
Green - Right Turn
Red - Brake Circuit
Black - Accessory Terminal on Bike

You will want to use a circuit tester like part # 40376, and test the function of the four wires on your motorcycle. They will most likely be ground, taillights, left turn/brake, and right turn/brake.

You will want to wire the black wire on the trailer to the accessory terminal on your motorcycle using a 12 gauge wire like our part # 12-1-1, and a 20 amp inline fuse.

The red wire on the trailer would need to be connected to the brake light circuit on your motorcycle also using a 12 gauge wire, and a 10 amp inline fuse.

I am sending a link to a FAQ page that is on trailer wiring diagrams.
