Extra LED running lamps
« on: September 21, 2015, 05:53:51 pm »
Anyone aware of any issues with the Canbus set up of the TTSE (is it canbus??) by adding a couple of 4 or 5 LED lamps in the radiator void to increase visibility.
four wheels move the body,
two wheels move the soul.

I'm not sure about the front, but I did add an additional 4 LED brake strobe light to the back of the Trophy as an additional visibility light when braking and it was no issue. Other members here have added driving lights without any problems, maybe one will chime in.

When I added a pair of Daylight Running LED bars to the Chin Piece under the Headlamp and had them connected to the Sidelight wiring she wouldn't fire up or start....so I opted to power them independently from the rear of the Glove Box Power supply socket, which works a treat...

 I powered mine thru a relay with power to the relay coming from the power supply for the GPS.   At that particular time that was the easiest place for me to grab power.  Next time the bike is apart I'll probably go back and re-feed  the relay from the power supply to the trunk.

No issues.

I added two LED strips up front running up and down in parallel with the fairing. Used 3M molding tape and some plastic right angle door edging paint flat black. I also added Hyperlites LEDS under my headlights and changed my headlights out to LEDS.
On the back, I add a flasher for the brake light. I also added 12 inch LED strips on both lower bags running up and down with pull apart wiring of amber and red for the brakes and turn signals.
So far the front LEDS have been in place for over a year in both snow and 121 degrees with no problem. I just installed the back LEDs today.

I did the same as Zebraranger did with LED.  I've had no issues

I powered my SkeneDesign amber lights off the Position light and also used that connection to power the relay that runs my MondoLights MM10 LED running lights.
