Any labels on the pins? It looks like it could be the voltage regulator.

Same symbols as this




Here is my reg/rec



The wiring is/was a mess. I am almost done. I got the rear light and rear brake switch done and the rest I understand. It is just that on resistor, it must be fore the headlight. All I have left to hook up is the headlight and the front hyd brake switch. I broke the wires on the other one and bought one with a brembo thread.



I have brembo master and calipers but the junction block has Nissan threads.

If it's the same symbol as the black box? In that case, it's probably just a relay for the solenoid.

One last question (for now).
I have a mini switch that I want to use for the start button.
With that white resistor or relay, can I use the small switch with thin wire safely? Or will I melt it?

The switch now uses a pretty heavy wire compared to the new switch.



See above. The thin wire is like 18 ga. The heavy black wire is to the existing switch. It goes to the Y on the white relay

Btw

Here is my wiring sketch

You should be OK, but I'd test it just to be sure. You should be able to activate the relay by connecting directly to a battery. Use a multimeter to measure the current. Anything under 3A should be fine for 18 gauge.

Looks nice with the rear sets, I see there is plenty of room with the exhaust you have chosen. I have Lafranconi Competizione with a LM1000 middle section and there's no way I could run the linkage like you do. Really inspiring to follow this Guzzi!

Amazon. $18 with free prime shipping. I will try to find a link to it.

It was cheap enough to take a risk that it wouldn't fit.

I mounted the light over the weekend

Used some glue and rivets

I put an crap load of tape on the drill bit to limit the depth as I am someone who would drill right thur the seat and poke out the top side.











I ground the bracket to give it some teeth for the glue to stick to.

I regret not thinking ahead and painting the raw steel bracket before I attached it.
