Givi E52 and tapping the brake light circuit
I'm thinking about adding the Givi top case rack to my V since I already have a Givi E52. My E52 has the factory wired brake light. With an $11 contact plate and wiring harness, the brake lights will work on the V, too. I'd guess that's important since the E52 sits somewhat aft and would probably obscure the OEM brake light to tall vehicles at short distances.
So my question deals with tapping that OEM brake wire. Can the wire feeding the V's LED brake light cluster handle the added current for the non-LED bulbs in the E52 without overheating?
Also, anyone know off hand which color wire is the brake light hot lead?
