Brake light modulator wiring question

I just bought an LED tailight/brakelight for my 2005 and bought the brakelight modulator at the same time. Can someone tell me exactly what wire goes to what? This is the way I hooked it up but still no joy.

red wire from modulator to blue wire running from brake light switch
yellow wire from modulator to red wire running to positive of LED light
black wire from modulator to ground.

Am I missing something here?

This is the picture of the modulater purchased from CUSTOM DYNAMICS

Your pic didn't show up. I'll try and find time to pull the seat on my bike and see how I have the modulator wired..I'll snap a pic for you. It might take me a coupla days to get to it.

Thanks Larry, that would be great. I can't get to it for a couple of days anyway. I attached the ground from the modulator securely and then put the other wires into the back of the electrical connector to make sure it worked before I soldered them in. I'm now thinking that the contact the wires are making in the connector isn't positive enough. I've done it this way on my other bikes and it always worked.
