Wiring the turn signal indicator?
Ok so my old speedometer had two lights to indicate turning. One for left and one for right, each light had two wires (a black and brown for the right) ( a black and green for the left) to four wires total with the blacks being the grounds. Now this new speedometer has only two wires for the indicator light (a yellow/back and a yellow) with the Yellow/black being the ground.
So the question is how to wire this up? I need to wire the yellow/back to the ground ( cant do anything about it) but if i connect both the brown and the green wire to the new yellow wire it connects all the blinkers and makes them all flash. Is there some special way to wire this up for this setup?

We passed this question on to Biker's Choice tech support so we could get you the best answer possible. Here is what they had to say after reading your questions:
"With the type of system you seem to have, you will have to put a tee in the wiring, with a one way diode in each wire to keep it from back feeding."

I had the same issue (1985 CB450SC). When I put both indicator signals together, both blinkers (L and R) where flashing. I disconnect again and put between both wires a small diode and connected it to the speedomenter. Done!
