What kind of connector does Givi use?
« on: August 10, 2012, 08:59:06 pm »
I have a Givi Traffic top box. Givi no longer makes or supports them. They have a light strip across the back or at least a lens and reflector. Mine does not have the lamps. I am going to install LED's in the reflector. Does anyone know or have a picture or source for a connector to connect the box to the bike. I might also light up my pannier's and would use the same set up.
Thanks...

I looked in the 2006 Givi catalog and did not find this "Traffic" top box. I think all the Givi boxes used the
same method to power the lights. The connector I have is a two part connector. One half is part # Z995M
and the other is Z880, I think. The distributor is, Sport Tour Ltd., 11386 Reading Rd. Sharonville Oh. 45241
Ph# 1-866-761-0936. You should call and confirm all this and the part numbers are correct. Just a comment.
They keep sending me the wrong part first, then they get it right. I think sportTour.com is correct.

I have a Givi E460 trunk box and I installed an LED strip inside the red reflector section, and used just a regular 2-pin "trailer" connector type plug to connect it to the bike.  They are about $5 at any atuoparts store.  I ran it out the bottom of the box and the mating wire from the bike comes out the left ide of the tail fairing above the rear fender.  I don't have any pics of it, but I'll try to take some soon.

Thanks, guys.
I have one of the 'trailer' connectors with pig tails. I was contemplating whether to mount a connector in the bottom of the box or just have a pig tail hang out.
I don't know when GIVI stopped making the box. It is a monkey design and looks good although it is much smaller than I am used to.
I'm seeking LED's with around 8k-10k mcd output. I got some from Radio Slack that have 120mcd and you can hardly see them in the daylight. After being rear-ended in the not-to-distant past, I want something that says STOP!! NOW!!
I'll post updates as they occur in case anyone's interested.

Try admorelighting.com, they have, what I think are fantastic LED setups for various Givi Boxes.
I purchase the version 1, signal and tail light unit for the Givi E52.
