Question Admore Lighting Wiring Harness

Hi!

I am currently installing Admore lighting to the top box and also later to the side cases.

For those of you who have installed Admore lighting to your top box and/or side cases, how did you bring the wiring harness from under the seat to the cases?

I keep looking at my Versys and wonder what would be the most efficient yet clean installation. The seat could be lifted to take the harness out and connect it to the luggage. However the wires would then be compressed by the seat when re-installing it.

Any pics, insight, tips, etc. would be very appreciated!

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

I have done both my 07 and my 2015, the 2015 is top case only, the 07 I had Givi 35. I need the model of top case you are installing.
As to the side cases, I followed the wiring for the signal lights, again I need to know what side cases you are installing, I am assuming you are installing the led kits yourself and the cases aren't already pre-wired ?
I will dig out the pictures tomorrow, also will post the info on the regulator connector.

I have pictures of how I routed the wire inside the Givi 35 and the reason for it. For 2015 there are two holes at the back, one on each side, back of the grab rail, get a light shining inside the rear of the seat compartment, go to the back of the bike and look in the corner. I used a different routing but that will also work**pictures later.

I drilled holes in the undertray of the underseat storage area all the way back by the tail light. I have my G35's lit up, and they are on the bike 100% of the time, so I wasn't worried about making it not noticeable when not using them.

I followed the turn signal wires. Took the back of the bike apart.

Shad top case and side cases

Sorry ...
Shad SH50 top case and SH36 side cases.

I'm not worried by the wiring connections. I have that covered (I think LOL).
My concern is that I like to ride the bike with and without the luggage. I could coil the wiring harness under the seat, as suggested by Admore and simply pull it out by lifting the seat. However that compresses the harness and I'm not fond of that.
I'm looking for a "clean" way of setting this up without leaving a few wiring harnesses dangling on the side of the bike when the luggage is not used (and avoiding the "crushed by the seat option).
Thanks!

When I added an additional brake-light I ran the wire back as shown in this pic:



then I "notched" the plastic 'ridge' that's there, for about 1/2", then my wires are NOT being compressed. Sorry I don't have an AFTER pic to show you.

The KISS principle.
I thought about notching the ridge at 3 places (1 for the topcase and 2 for the sidecases). However I kept wondering if there was a better way.
Unless other suggestions/tips pop up, there's a good chance that I'll start notching.

Thank you

No Comment on Grooving

I have pictures showing how I did it and several other non grooving options, done the way I would expect any automotive electrician to do.
The first pictures shows the top case and mini light bar coming out below the grab rail and wire tied to the top case support bracket. The second really simple solution, shows some red 12 gauge SEW wire coming out the right side rear of the bike, there is a identical opening on the left, shove your individual wire harness in each hole, left signal on left right on right. The sockets and plugs come colour coded from Admore, your top case pick a hole either left or right. I also show my tank bag and map case, both with black 1/8 and 3/16 shock cord. Put this on your mounting rail for top case, slip connector into it when cases are removed.

No drilling or grooving required*****I needed a break from pulling 4 inch ardox nails, at 600 and counting, only 60 to go

Keep it simple and just get the Admore Light Bar instead of having to wire all your cases.

Thanks for the pics and insight. These will prover to be very useful.
Note: I have exchanged emails with Admore lighting and am waiting for their second reply.
I asked them to make me extra quick-disconnect connectors with bare wires at each end.
Thus I could have male connectors on the top and side cases, along with 3 male connectors on the bike. I would then make 3 short extensions with female quick-connectors at each end. These should permit quick connection/disconnection of the cases.

I don't get along with simple LOL!
Even if I wanted to, I'm now committed. The LED strips are on the cases, etc.
Thanks!
