    To PHIBSPACE: where did you get that awesome looking luggage rack for your topcase?

      Hi Wildones, How would I wire in this SKENE system into my K16? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGxOwCOY9lA  I like how it may make me more visible on the highway.  Right now I just have the topcase light directly wired into the factory wires located on the top section of the topcase

        On the Skene site there are detailed instructions how to connect their lights to our bike. It requires one of their controllers as well.

          Thanks FP-NLD!  Do you happen to know where the "red" wire in the aux system is?  I know I will have too much drain on the canbus so will need an alternate power supply

            With "aux system" do you mean the power outlet under the seat (right hand side, just in front of the battery box)?

              Just an update: my homemade topcase brake light is still going strong.  No problems at all.

                Post #7, My brake lights are still working perfectly.  I did have to add some epoxy to replace some of the hot glue as where I live it get over 115 degrees and the hot glue melted...very funny actually.  The epoxy I added last year and it has been trouble free since.
