The ones I got have 3 wires: Red to marker light live, Yellow to indicator live and black to ground. I cheated with the connectors and used Posi Tap.

So I think I've decided to purchase 2 pairs of these, some 3m double sided tape, and some positaps in the new year. I'm going to mount 1 pair on the hand guards and one pair on my engine guards. You can never have enough light right? and then I'll probably remove the incandescent signals as soon as I get my hands on a flasher relay that can handle LEDs, and I'll wire the whole thing up all nice and tidy sometime in the warmer months.

Progress on opening the headlight is slow, I worked on it for a while this morning but I really can't work out how to start getting that seal apart. I'm going to have to do some more research here and tackle it a little bit at a time.

I think the compound used to seal the headlight assembly changed at some point because some guys really struggle getting it apart and others report it was easy. Maybe they went from butyl rubber to acrylic or silicone or something.
