Givi top case

I purchased a Givi top case B47 I believe is the model. I noticed that it covered my tail light, so I purchased the E126 LED brake light kit. I'm having a tough time installing it. Anyone done this install yet?

How did you mount it. Photos would help. Did you use a Givi M5M Monolock Mounting Plate.......Givi M5M Monolock Top Case Mounting Plate - RevZilla

I did use the M5M plate, and bought the light kit from Givi. The lights that came with the kit have 3 wires (blue, red, black) but they go into a connection with two wires (white and black). My tail light on motorcycle has three wires (blue, black, red). Not sure what to connect where! I'll put pics up this evening. Not around the bike right now. Thank you!!

Hmmm... that doesn't sound right. Which year Versys do you have?

I have a '14 with the Givi V46 Monokey Topcase and it doesn't block the tail light at all (see pics)

More lights are good, but I'd suggest double-checking the mounting instructions for the top case.

Good luck!

Rob,

My case is mounted just like yours. I guess it doesn't block the light, but I think if you had truck or something that rides high behind you, they wouldn't have much visibility of tail light. I haven't had anyone tell me they couldn't see it, so I could be wrong.

BECAUSE of the lack of visibility from behind, and slightly higher, I added an LED brake-light I got at Princess Auto (Canadian version of H-F) to my '15 V650.





It's PARTICULARLY to add visibility when I add my rack to carry my tent....

Coming off of the new led light kit are three wires. Black, red and blue.

Those three wires feed to this connector that has two places to attach the wires. Instructions show that the red goes on one side and black goes on other. Instructions don't mention the blue wire.

That connector connects to this one when the box is closed. This connector has one black and one white wire that run under the box to another connector.

The final connector has one blue and one black wire that run under the seat and are to be wires to the wires going to the tail light. There are three wires running to the tail light. One black, one blue and one red. In this picture, the wires on top are the bikes wires to tail light and bottom are the ones from the case lights. I have the blue connected to blue and black connected to black. I left the red alone. Obviously, this is not the right way because the lights are not turning on. Any help would be great!!
