Relay wiring #1
Done a search but still unsure if the correct wiring, ordered a relay for my dt400c for one listed on yambits, wires on the harness are brown(B) brown/white(L) and black(E), the terminals on the new relay are marked up X L and P which have to be wired to which colours?

Not the best at leccy.
Thanks Wayne.

Brown to X, brown/white to L. Ignore the third pin and your black earth wire. You can also put whatever wattage bulbs in the flasher that you want.

Make sure you insulate the "P" pin or mount it so it can't touch anything to prevent a direct short.

That's great, thanks for letting us know Wayne.

Plenty of cheap rear brake switches out there (eg Yambits in the UK) and they all come with one male and one female connector which plug straight into the main loom.

You just need to make sure that the fitment type is the correct one for your bike. I have seen two types of fitment - one where the switch sits in the loop on the frame and is held in position by a nut either side and a slightly later type where it is a push fit into the loop.
