I'm getting my 2016 959 ready for track season and switched to track fairings for this season. I have not been able to find the electrical race connectors Ducati use to sell, and I was thinking about making my own. Has anybody made their own resistor kits for the rear tail light and radiator fan? I measured resistance on the brake light this morning and it came in at 3.5M Ohms. My plan would be, if nobody has information on this, would be try to find the electrical connections that would mate with the factory connections, and solder my own resistors into the new plugs. Any help or ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks,

BP

You can get away from the CEL on the tail light if you unplug your brake light switches. It is the brake light that activates it. You will also need something for the side stand. I've kept my radiator fan so no insight on that.

This is what the factory plug is made of. The resistor is across the white and black wires and is banded as in the picture - I haven’t tested the ohms myself but you should be able to figure it out from the color pattern I hope. I don’t have info on the side stand delete sorry. You can also just unplugged the front and rear brake wire connectors to prevent the CEL from appearing.

That will work! Thank you so much! The resistor color bands is what I needed !

Did you figure it out? What did you come up with?
I ordered the resistors from the picture you sent me, and ordered some auto plugs that I am hoping will fit. I've been in and out of town for work, so I haven't been able to strip the street fairings off and try the homemade resistors yet. I just got the ECU flashed for my slip on and exhaust valve delete today, and took it out and the bike died. So unfortunately, I'm probably not getting to the resistor for a little bit yet. I'll update once I get one made and try it out.
