that is the one I bought. The instructions with it state to slouchy the wires:transmitter bike harness
orange/white to red/yellow (power)
white to white (high beam)do you need me to send what colors there really are on the transmitter and bike?

slouchy would be a typo for splice...sorry!
Expert:  Steve replied 11 months ago.

did you purchase the required harness?

2011-later Softail models, 2012-later Dyna models and 2014-later Sportster models require separate purchase of an Electrical Connection Harness (Part No. 72673-11)

tell me everything you can.

the bike is a 2015 Sportster 1200T and I just checked the catalog and it says it will work and does not need another part. I've got everything where it needs to be but cannot match the colors to splice them correctly.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the power comes from the light harness and the on/off (up/down) is the high beam. It doe not get power from the batter per se (directly from a harness connected to it)
Expert:  Steve replied 11 months ago.

here is a link to the instructions for your kit: http://www.harley-davidson.com/app-content/service/isheets/-J05688.PDF

page 1, just below figure 1 states "2014-later Sportster models require separate purchase of an Electrical Connection Harness (Part No. 72673-11)

you cannot install the kit without the harness. the wires you need to connect to, per "Harness Connection" page 9, are included with the accessory harness.
