Help with Trailer hitch install

I am installing a trailer hitch on a 2002 V Star 1100 Custom and I need to relocate the rear turn signals.

Can somebody tell me where they connect to the wiring harness? I would like the replace the leads rather than splice them, but I can't determined where they connect, looks like they disappear under the inter fender.

I think they wind up under the seat at a connector.
Good luck

That is what I was afraid of, was hoping they pluged in somewhere around the tail light.

I have no idea if this will apply to you but I just relocated my turn signals on my 650 Custom and all the connectors were inside the taillight. It was VERY convenient as I didn't want to cut and splice either.

There were three nuts holding the tail light assy inside the fender, a little difficult to locate (ended up removing the fender to find them).

I hope this helps

Bill you will have to send me some photos of that install when you get it done. I too have been thinking about putting a hitch on my custom but want to know what it looks like.

For future reference, simply remove the license plate and every connection is right there.
