Wiring Help

Where does the wires from the right handlebar brake light switch connect? Having trouble finding its mate on a 98 K1200rs. TIA

If I'm reading the factory manual correctly, it will be necessary to remove the plastic on the right side, and there's like some sort of junction block just below, and slightly forward of, the gas tank.

Note: the junction box appears to have a cover.

On attached images, the larger image, top frame indicates the box to take the cover off of, and on the smaller image, what is labeled as #8 is the plug that is supposed to be disconnected, according to the factory manual. See anything similar?

(Note: The Clymer doesn't provide any illustrations - it just says to "trace the wiring harness")

I just bought replacement switches for both sides on my '97. The wire from the microswitch is about 18 inches long with connectors on the end. I haven't stripped off the plastics yet, but that's about how far down the connectors should be. If the wiring goes back further without a connector, it won't be 'plug & play' but a solder,splice and sleeve job.

Highly unlikely, IMO, but if that turns out to be on the money, then it's engineering that's idiotic beyond words.

Wiring Help-Solved

Got a little too cocky about how idiot proof BMW connectors are. The reason there wasn't an available 2 pin connector in the junction box was because I had plugged in the radiator fan connector in there. DUH!! I was looking so hard I didn't leave any time to think. Thanks for the photos,Carnedaro.
