RE: R1150R Electrical outlet question


Thanks for the info.  I checked and found the connector.  Had to disconnect
the battery positive cable to get the connector from behind the starter, but
it worked.

Thanks again,

02 R1150RA

The pigtail is tucked behind the starter,   just look a bit harder.  You 
will need to clip a plastic tie.
