GIVI Stop Light Help

I just installed a GIVI V46 topcase with the stop light kit. I didn't wire it up yet because I'm not sure what wires I need to tap into. Just wondering if someone could help me before I blow a fuse or something. The three wires coming out of the Versys stop light are, yellow/black, blue and red. The two GIVI wires are black and blue.

Thanks, Dave

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

One of these (http://www.bikerhiway.com/radiantz-r...rip-p-312.html) or a similar product will let you run your Givi lights as both running lights and brake lights. I did that with the extra brake light I wired on my bike. Worth considering.

Hey 55, let me know once you have it hooked up how it works for you? I have it on mine and really liked it at first, then it just stopped working intermitently. It seems the integrity of the contact points on the inside of the box is not perfect, and if there is even a slight pressure inside of the box (like when my grocery bags push up on the box slightly) then the lights stop working....

I had so much trouble with mine that I replaced them with the kit from admorelighting.com. They also have kits for the V35 cases, plus they are brake lights and turn signals.

Hello, got a V46 with brake light too. I had a problem where it stopped working completely for a while.

It turned out that the contact screws inside the bottom connector ( the one with the spring inside) were loose.

I gently opened the plastic contact case and re-tighten the both contact. It works like a charm now.

If it breaks again, I am thinking of wiring a cable permanatly inside the box from the back from the bottom connector to the brake light inside the top cover. I would tape the cable on the bottom of the box and lay it so that it reaches the top cover from the hinge side.

Cheers,

4tire!

No problems with mine. Had it for 2 months now. I also put a LED stop light licence plate frame on and soddered all the wires together instead of using the connecters that GIVI gave me. Now I have 3 stop lights on the back of my V.

The next thing that will happen to the Givi brake light is the wires under the little screws have soldered ends. They will break off. So when you repair that put a little blue locktite on the screws and they won't vibrate loose.
