Givi55 + Admore LED Lights + ROSTRA rear brake relay
« on: March 06, 2016, 03:41:18 pm »
Another Rostra Install question:

For those who have a Givi(55) Top case with the Admore LED lighting package, and integrated lighting Harness from Admore.....

Have any of you had ANY issues tapping the rear OEM brake light power line to use for the Rostra de-activation Relay???

I have not TRIED this yet, but wanted to see if anyone else has to ensure that I'm not going to get any feedback/crosstalk between the units that could cause a malfunction in either.

I already had ONE Admore harness with Integrated circuit FAIL due to poor wiring from Admore, which fried the board and Admore was unwilling to replace gratis.  No matter.

Just want to be sure that this install won't do any harm to either Admore or Rostra.

Thanks!

I have the 47L Trunk with admore lighting kit. When I installed my Rostra I tapped the brake from the front of the bike & have had no problems. Just tap it from the front " ::)" & you will have no problems  :beerchug:

I have the same Admore and Rostra setup and agree with Zarticus. There's no need to run the Rostra wiring all of the way to the back of the bike. Tap into the front brake wire. It's much easier and closer.

Thank you all for replying.  ;D

I was going to tap this wire originally, but couldn't find anybody that had posted-up a pic, or which wire (color) that was correct up front??

Naturally - I went to great lengths to splice and RUN a wire all the way to the back of the bike already, but hadn't tapped it yet.

Okay -- I am CONVINCED!!!

Now can one of you kind kIND people tell me which wire to TAP!?!  ;-)

thanks,

Thread resurrection.  In the midst of putting the Admore kit in my E55.  So far, not thoroughly impressed with the kit.  The only meaningful instructions are the wire chart showing which wires do what from the bike.  Support has been great, ended up using glue to hold the LEDs in place per their suggestion to get the lenses in place and the LEDs staying put.  Looks like a quality kit, but wish for more instructions.  trunk is done, tearing into the tail to find tailight wires now.
