1 should be Ground
1 should be Brake light
1 should be running light you should have 2 to 3 wires running to the tail light on your bike
Normally you cant screw up a light

Not sure of the color coding on the 883 tail light. Service manual has the schematic.
On the light. Green is normally ground. Red is normally hot/power. Black is normally neutral/return.

Black would be ground. The other 2 don't match Harley's color code so you'll have to put 12 volts to each wire to see which is the brighter brake light and dimmer tail light. The blue wire is the H-D tail light wire.
You'll also need a ballast for the LEDs, like a Badlands module.

guys...thanks for the advice...

i could figured it out myself...
the red cable from tail light is connected to HD brown (Turn signal molex)
the black cable from tail light is connected to HD blue (Turn signal molex)

that way you can see the light on and off whenever use a brake....

or

you can make it always light on if you do as below..
the red cable from tail light is connected to HD black cable
the black cable from tail light is connected to HD blue cable

the green cable from the light is just connected to any metal part... i guess it's a ground...or i could be wrong^^

Only for signal lights, not tail and brake.
