    Right, apologies for the days late reply, I got side tracked and then forgot. Right I've uploaded a few pics of the wiring:

    https://imgur.com/a/YO6X0su

    The first pic is the optional accessories plug and how it hooks up. Red/Brown being a live that goes directly through the fuse then to the starter relay. Brown is the negative parallel. Violet I believe is unused on the S1000RR but still hooks up to the control unit.

    Second, third and fourth pic are the route the rear plate light takes through the fuse/starter and the pin it hooks up to in the control unit. This should give you a good start for troubleshooting the issue.

    That first diagram clears up a spot of bother I had connecting the accessories socket to the NN plug. I found the wiring instructions that came with the plug to be wrong for what I required to wire in a TomTom.

    Also found that the TomTom wouldn't charge on the bike if its battery was too discharged.

    I had a right trial with the NN plug and the tomtom. Apart from the fairings which were like an advanced evening class in Origami, the wiring diagram provided was useless. There were 2 yellow wires from the NN plug, but which one is the feed? Obviously I guessed, got it wrong, had to remove fairings all over again (snapping a lug in the process) and try the other one. But then I decided to just join them both together in the hope that it would work. It did, no problems so far over the last 4/5 months. Works great no charging issues or weird flags on the dash. The only really irritating issue I have now is the bloody tomtom swinging round in the wind at the stem mount. Anyone got any fixes for that?
    But, still cheaper than the OEM solution.

    Re: Nippy Normans charger not working

    Thanks for comments guys, and the diagram Gaz.
    Right then, opened her up and cables run straight through the tail-tidy back-of-house to the LED indicators and LED numberplate light (marked tail light below), so it's not a hidden away connection.
    Netx:
    If the problem is with the LED tail tidy light itself, will disconnecting the red plastic tube connectors inside the tail (white dots on bottom photo) be enough to check the NN charger is working, or do I have to also re-connect the OEM tail tidy light to complete some kind of circuit? H

    Can I test my replacement tail tidy light by connecting it to a battery?

    Yes, provided it has correct ballast/driver and connected with correct polarity

    Thanks Rob. Typo error from me. I missed out the word "easily" between the words "Can" and "I".
    How would a thicko go about that. ie. where do I get a ballast/driver and leads to hook up between the bike battery terminals and the tail tidy light leads?

    Hi Hugh,

    You can connect whatever cables/drivers came with the LED direct to battery with a short bit of wire.
