    Top Case Rack w/ Brake Lights

    Added a top case rack over the weekend.  It's made for a 93-13 Harley top case and includes a third stop light.

    I connected it to my Skene Design P3 Light Controller.

    Not a bad way to add some extra visibility, and at a pretty reasonable price too. Have you tried to carry anything on the rack yet?

    Yep. Works well. Have done a couple of scavenger hunt rallys with a dry bag on top.

    Could you post some pics? I'd like to see how you mounted it, inside and out.

    I found the black color version of it - wonder how to wire it to work with the brake lights and still remove the TOP BOX easily?

    Don't pick a fight with an old guy, because if he can't fight - he'll just kill you!

    I saw that one too, but my top case is off more than it's on, so for me it's not worth the time to install.

    Just what I am looking for, thanks for the post and video.
       :460:

    Do you have any problems with the cruise control as a result of the added lights? 

    Could you post some pictures or information as to where  you tapped into the bikes electrical system?  (With wire colors from both the rack and bike please.)

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.   :821:
