Wiring Headlight, blinkers, and tail light.

I have a 1994 kz1000 Police and got new lights for it. However i don't know a thing about electrical work. I also need to know how to connect the speedometer. If anyone knows of a solid instructional video or a website throw it my way.

What sort of lights are you installing? I would try to find a wiring diagram specific for the KZ1000-P13, or go ahead & get the Kawasaki service manual which should have a wiring diagram. The parts diagrams at Kawasaki dot com or Partzilla might help some.

A Police bike is going to have more complicated lighting than most motorcycles & it wouldn't be unusual for the wire harness to be hacked up by the police service department.

When wiring a motorcycle, assuming you have to crimp on some new terminal pins or new bullet connectors, you should get a ratcheting open barrel crimper and use open barrel terminals & bullet connectors. CycleTerminal dot com has a crimper & other stuff, including a 10-pack of waterproof bullet connectors. Open barrel crimps are the same as stock & very strong. I would not use wire nuts or generic terminals from the auto parts store, and certainly not one of those cheapo crimpers. vibration is a consideration on a mc.
