I just recently did the Lockhart Phillips Flush Mounts and replaced my rear turn signals as well. This info comes right fromt he back of the Lockhart Phillips Package:
For a single Filament Bulb, the Red or Solid Black wire is the positive. The Black with the white stripe is the Negative.
For a dual Filament Bulb, Red wire = Flasher Light and is Positive, The solid Black = Running Light Positive,and the black with white stripe is the Ground.
To convert dual filament to single:
cut or tuck away solid black wire, red to (+), striped to (-) (Ground)
I only had to attach as for a single filament because I didnt see another wire on my bike for the Black solid running light positive wire.
Just one tip, when ya twist the wires around their associative wires, make sure ya electrical tape em individually at the ties that you make, if you electrical tape em as a whole, the positive wire will be touching the negative and they wont work. Just my $.02, hope this helps ya bro
**also, some flush mount lights may require some filing of the fairings, just alittle bit so the casing fits behind it...keep us posted

I just clipped off those connectors and wired my flushmounts in using snap connectors from the hardware store (or you could use spade connectors).... that way when I take off the bodywork I just unplug the wires and not have to electrical tape anything
the black wire with a white stripe is the ground... the other (green or brown or whatever) is the positive lead...

just fyi, when you're connecting filament type bulbs (as opposed to led's), the polarity doesn't matter. you could swap the +/- wires and the bulb would still light up just fine. no need to bust your ass getting the polarity right....
