The three wire plug was for California models only and went to a solenoid accuated butterfly in the bottom of the air cleaner backing plate. Good luck

SOURCE: I took the apes off
Hello desertchop, i have done this before with the same results...I had two stereo amps mounted inside the fairing to deal with and birdsnest of wires from hell. Needless to say it's very aggravating....The dangling should of not hurt the lights, but before you backtrack, run a hotwire to see if they will power on, if they wont the solder might of pulled loose. I found that i had pinched a couple of wires and a one of the wiring harness connectors wasn't all the way in when i went back over everything...When the abs light flashes the brakes convert back to regular brakes, you have wire that has come off somewhere...check the harness...follow the abs line and you will find it. Take a zip tie and tie it together. Hope this helps & good luck with your glide.

I don't know a lot about the later model bikes since I specialize in repairing the older bikes but I guess you damaged your front brake light switch in the right side handlebar switch housing. The switch sticks out of the side of the housing that faces the front MC. That's my best guess.
