3 wires...
green = ground
solid = marker
white line = turn signal

you only have 2 wires on your flushmount, so black to green, yellow to turn signal wire, tape up the marker light wire

Yep, what he said.

Never assume when it comes to electrical. When there's three wires there's a reason. And it's seldom the right choice to connect two together that were not together before.

Those signals you have now are only two wire ones, so you will have to lose the running light feature that came factory with the bike. Swap the power wires that you have connected to the turn signals now and you will 'convert' your marker lights as you have it now to function as proper turn signals.

On another note, if anyone doesn't want to hack into their factory harness, just drop me a PM as I have all of the connectors needed so that your aftermarket lights will plug right into the turn signal connectors. No bikes use bullet connectors anymore like the ones in the pictures.
