If you don't have a digital multimeter, you can use the CA integrated tail light as a test light. Maybe an actual owner of the CA integrated tail light installed in a slow '05 Magma Red ZX-10R will speak up...

I " Slow Magma one " am not in front of the junk right now. Won't be until Saturday. Anyhow there's two wires one on each plug. One wire is gray and the other might be green/yellow. You can double check this bye taking the exposed wire(s) and putting them on the top of the pin. If you get light, there ya go. If not then it is not it... Volaaaaaa


Please paint your Magma. The 05 Pearl jawn is the slowest one of them all. Believe me I know. Now we all know that the 10 is the slowest of all liter bikes and is no Gixxer, so let's fall to our knees in shame

Don't splice into the wiring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Use the factory connector from the stock fender and soider the clear alternatives wire onto the section of wire and connector coming from the fender. That way whenever you want to pull the tail off for whatever rason you don't have to cut the wiring.

When you take the fender off you had to unplug three connectors. One for the license plate light and one for each turn signal. Cut the connectors off the fender leaving about 6 inches of loom. Remember what color goes to what side and I think the black one is for the license plate light. Soider the wiring coming from the CA light to each connector. Much cleaner and OEM looking. I the green connector is right turn and gray is left turn with a black connector for the license plate light.

Some like to splice. I however did not.


I sexually have the wire installed directly into the pin. Easy as pie :). No tail removal issue and you can button it up right back in the oem rubber cover.... One more thing. There is only 2 wires ( obvious ) for the CA tail. Each hot turn sig wire installed into the correct oem wire power the tail..

you want a cleaner more oem look? you should! to achieve that in this case it requires no cutting. I wouldn't recommend cutting anything. No need to. that must be riced jdm. sorry my English isn't to good and i am not wearing my asics.

Before you try to be funny I'm talking about the connectors that come of the stock fender that you are not using anyways. I'm not talking about any wires that come off the main harness.

The OP can do whatever he wants. Hack it up, make it lQQk sex, doesn't matter. But my response about what you wrote is if your providing that oem [ " clean is " ] the way to go, which I agree with you, then why does he want to butcher/cut anything? He might return it back to stock and sell it some day. Who knows what the future holds. Or he could realize that since the CA draws an extreme amount of power and slows the 10 down even more, he will at that point want to take it off and use it as target pratice

that is all
