Postby Whitworth Wanderer » Fri Feb 10, 2017 3:15 pm

Where is the AUX lead plug to supply a feed for accessories/equipment to be found & is it a male or female plug connector :?:

There's a spare lead behind the clocks, accessed from the front by removing the screen. It's for the 2nd socket. It has a socket on there for plugging the genuine part in.

I have a picture somewhere.... I'll look.

the spare socket/connector is limited to 2 amps...so watch what you connect power wise....its controlled by the ignition switch, there are also 2 other spare connectors which are controlled by the headlight on/off, which are for extra lights i presume....not sure about fuse rating on those 2

I'm going to put a pair of Givi S320 LED fog lights on but will get the dealer to do it as it's free fitting. Have you fitted any additional light yet?

i'm fairly happy with lights as they are, i have fitted an extra LED stop/tail light to my topbox, as the box sits low over the rear light, i was worried that high artics close behind me in traffic may not see my rear light very well...

Could you share a photo of the tail light? I have the same issue with the Givi box being in the way of the rear light if looking from certain angle. Cheers

theres loads on ebay, you want the type without number plate light though.....which i didnt realise at 1st :oops: so got another one, although a touch of black paint would have sorted the clear bit of lens at the bottom...

i'm sure ive seen kits specifically for Givi boxes, fits inside the red reflectors already on the box, but around £40 iirc.....

i did think about getting some flexible LED strips and trying to fit them under the red reflectors already on the box, but went with the simpler option

i bought some 3 way connectors and wired one in parallel from the rear light connector, took cable under rack and into topbox, then to the new light, i did think it may be handy sometime in the future to have a 12v supply in the box, maybe charging phone or something....
