Turn Signal Wiring
New to modding, but determined to learn. I have replacement turn signals that I want to install, but have a question about the wiring. This is related to the wiring of the front turn signals and where they plug in inside the headlight bucket on my 2012 Thruxton.
The existing wires have a plastic clip that my aftermarket wires don't have (I got them from British Customs). Do I cut the existing wire below the clip, and splice the new wire to it so I can utilize the clip?
If I do splice the wires, do I twist them together & tape with electrical tape, or should I use a product like Solder-it paste (something I found online; it's nothing I've ever used before).
That's the only way I can think of on my own. Thanks for any advice!
If by some brain-lapse I get the wires wrong, will the signals simply not work, or will it cause significant damage? Also, what's that goop covering all the electrical connections?
