Default Help! Rear Turn Signal Wires

So I de-pinned my rear turn signals and made the mistake of not taking a picture of the wires. My 16 Street Bob has the small plugs where the wires running to the turn signal have a grey, purple, and a blue and on unused slot. The other plug has blue with red stripe, solid blue, blue with purple stripe, and solid black. Can anyone tell me how these go?

Nevermind, I got it figured out... ONLY to find that Harley made the turn signal wires TOO #ucking short! I'm in the middle of relocating my turn signals back so that I may install saddle bags. I do not want to cut and splice wires, that's why I de-pinned the plugs. With the signals relocated back a few inches, the signal wires won't even make it into the area under the seat where all of the harnesses meet. Seriously, who cuts wiring exact length. WTF

What's the problem with solder and heat shrink extensions with new crimp pins?

I got it wrapped up. What a PITA. I had to send the other end of the harness through the rear fender, connect plugs, and pull them back through. The plugs are barely through the hole where the harnesses meet.

When I was building high end boats we were taught to leave a service loop so that ends or switches could be accessed. We had one individual that didn't want to adhere to that policy and the techs out in the marinas had some good names for this guy. Glad you were able to get some wire to the plugs and effect a good repair.

I always called it a courtesy loop,
BUT under fenders you don't want extra wire, that's why the exact length .
