Has anyone got a picture of an OIF wiring loom in place please? I've bought a new main loom and headlamp loom, but the one I'm removing is definitely not a BSA one, so I've no idea where to place it, for instance does the tail lamp end of the wiring loom go into the tail light, or is there wiring that comes out of the tail light that joins the loom under the backseat?

Put the thick bit to the front and the long trailie bit to the back, the thick bit joins the head lamp loom and bar switches under the headstock With a clump of multi connectors..

Been a while since mine had stock wiring. But, as I remember it the wires from the main harness join to the tail light and rear indicators via a multi-pin connector hidden in the tail light housing atop the rear fender.

Picture is from Trident, but that's how the headlight is connected.
