My girlfriend ordered a "Back-Off Break Hold" for her SV650, and I have been having a bit of trouble installing it. There are 3 wires that go through the headlight and I was wondering if anyone know which one I use to tap into the speedo reading.

You should be going into the taillight, not the headlight.

The black wire is ground. The other two are the running light signal and the brake light signal.

Ah, let me clarify. I have already tapped into the tail light. This one actually uses the speed sensor to apply break lights when your speed drops. Thus I need to go into the headlight (she has the naked model), tap into the speedo line, and run a wire from the headlight through the frame and under the seat. I was just wondering if anyone knew which of the three lines actually sends the speedo signal.

No help with the installation but thanks - I just looked that up and it looks like a pretty interesting product. I may have to put one on my bike. I am always concerned about people behind me not noticing I am slowing down especially with the engine braking on the SV.

I can understand the module to flash the breaklights while you are on the brakes but one that turns them on while slowing down?

Pointless as far as i am concerned. Just pull the brake back untill it turns the brake light on...why go through all this trouble and cutting/splicing of wires to do what you can do by not being lazy?

User Selected Mode One: Emit a visual signal of 3 short light flashes, followed by 1 long light flash (3.5 seconds). The signal automatically repeats itself as long as the brake lights are on. This pattern is not random, but has been selected because of its ability to retain following drivers attention.

User Selected Mode Two: Emit a visual signal of 5 quick flashes, followed by a steady on light that remains steady as long as the brake lights are on. Brake Alert: If the Brake Hold Module is holding your brake lights on for you and you wish to gain the attention of someone behind you; simply press either brake and your brake lights will flash 5 times then return to steady on.
sounds interesting, I usually just give enough pressure on the breaks to set off the lights.
