Im sorry if I've posted this before don't remember doing so.

Purchased this a few months ago. I believe this was from a k1100 police bike however can't seem to find any examples.
As you can see it has a bmw plug on ao I believe this was an added extra.

Just wondering has anyone seen anything similar. If not can anyone advise on the best way to hook it up to the brake light.

that connector is almost the same as the clutch , rear brake switch front brake switch as it leaves the main loom the mate for it is on the end of the cable coming from the switches, I believe its a 2.1 mm pin plug required to fit that socket , but I haven't seen many available at all ..exactly the same

inside the rear cowl stop light lens assembly you will see small spade type connectors connectingto each of the globe holders .
I would break into the cables before reaching the globe assembly

there is a hole in the rear cowl upper right hand side ...which lets the cabling loom to gain access to the rear lens , you could drop a cable out through that hole , so its on the under side of the rear cowl ...easily allowing access to that connector there ...I guess. as its a routine part of changing tyres , to remove that rear flap- guardfrom the bike to let the wheel come out the back whilst on the centre stand.

possible a cable p clamp could hold that cable in place so it doesn't bind - collect the rear wheel whilst moving ???

hope that helps

Dai gave some good advice in reply 12

Good to meet you briefly at KFest back in May, by the way. Your bike was instantly recognisable.
