Please post some pictures (daylight) to show how this rack fits the TOP BOX.  Thanx

Interior wiring covered with black gorilla tape


Pass through from top to bottom half obviously needs a little maintenance

Looks like the forward bar of the rack might hit the back of a passenger...

...got a side profile picture too?

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?

There are two open pins in the connector that you can use to run the brake light through. You'll need to buy the pins.

I made use of the open pins and it works perfectly.

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:

No issues with the cruise control.

I followed the wiring suggestions of another post to add two pins to the connector.  I have the system connected to a Skene Design rear light controller.  I'll try to find the post for the wiring instructions and copy the link here.

and here ya go:  https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,5990.0.html
