AdMore Lighting

AdMorelighting.com has last years version of the Givi V35 light kit on sale
for $99. shiped in the US.
"This kit gives you everything you need to equip 2 GIVI V35 side cases with
brake, tail light and turn signal functions"
Another use for my "disposable income" but a nice addition I think.

They look like nice kits.

For anyone who thinks that those fake reflectors are good enough as they are, think again.



The bag on the left is stock. The bag on the right (and the top case) have had the white piece of cardboard behind the "reflector" covered by white DOT-C2 reflective tape. (If I had found SOLAS tape, I would have used that...)

From the factory, those red pieces of plastic do nothing to enhance your safety. While I know active lighting is better than passive, spending $10 and a few minutes to make the reflectors actually work is time well spent if you don't want to spend the $$$ on the lighting kit.

Just my $0.02,
Dave C

Thanks for the heads-up!
That deal is hard to find on the Admore page, but I found it and ordered the set-up for my V35 panniers.

Have you installed yours yet?

I have a 2007 Versys. I assume the v.1 on sale works fine?

Ordered mine for my V35's as well. 2009 model Versys
I am making the assumption that the v.1 controller will work fine. Kind of a novice at the electrical side of things.
If anyone knows different please let us know!

One thing I noticed, you have to enter your bike model and year before it lists the product. So assuming that is to determine which products are compatible with which bikes.

B Scott: No, I don’t have mine yet, I only ordered on Wed 4/21.
We should receive ours about the same time.
The v.1 is the same type all those brave souls before us have installed.
I believe the reason for the newer style is to Include Canbus (BMW) and PWM systems too.
I have seen pictures here before and I think the additional lighting is worth the cost.

Did mine with LED lights and cost less than USD50. Direct connect to back brake switch. No problem so far.

I ordered one, and yes it is hard to find, regular price of $149 plus shipping is a bit steep, compared to $87 plus shipping and tax for the V.1 controller kit.

Here is a link to the clearance page http://admorelighting.com/index.php?...=&make=&model=

Do you have the v.1 or v.2 version? It'd be a shame to get the v.1 version and then find out it doesn't work. And does it take up much room (if any) in the inside of the case?

Thanks,

I believe that I have V.1 in my V35 cases and V.2 in the E52. This post I did on the wiring will show you how much interior room they take. http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...75&postcount=4

Same delay, same refund on the shipping. This kit is a really sweet deal.

+ 2 on the delay and shiping cost refund.
In the process of e-mails, I learned AdMore is set to come out with front turn signal lighting in about 2 months, Should be interesting.

Well it took longer than I thought it would, but I installed it so that the exposed wiring was at a minimum. I have a short piece at the bottom that is exposed when the case is open and another where it attaches to the socket, half way up the inside of the case, and used the "B" location for the socket.
This is one really awesome kit, my brake flasher works with this kit also. One thing I didn't know was that the signal lights will turn the designated light completely off & on , even when the brake light is on.
I would say these lights are so bright that it may be too much at night, however it is the daytime were they will really come into play.

Glad your install went well.
I am anxiously waiting for my kit to arrive.
Your ability to keep the exposed wiring to a minimum sounds very good.
If you have some time could you post a picture or two?
Thanks

Make sure you have some shrink tube to put around the wire. The installation isn't hard, but figure it all out before you start drilling any holes in your cases.
