Are GIVI top box LEDs compatable
« on: June 13, 2019, 10:19:59 AM »
Hello
Just seeking guidance please. I'm looking to fit a GIVI top box with the LED brake light inserts that can be fitted, however I have read elsewhere that these are NOT compatible with LED break lights on my 2013 model..
Any thoughts please.
Stu

I don't see why they would not be compatible.  I have led brake lights in my Givi top box, that was previously fitted to my 2011 SX and is now fitted to my 2017 SX.  I have had no problems, and I have no dea why there would be any.

The only problems that I have had have been relates to the stupid unnecessary Givi wiring connectors on the top box lid, and the poor arrangements for the spring connector on the bottom, both of which relate to the box not the bike.

Cheers Burty, the comment mentioned there would be an issue as piggy backing the wires for the top box leds might stop the bike brake leds operating correctly,
might be a need for a relay.. will get the kit and  see.

many thanks.

There is no reason why it would cause a problem.  (for info I am an electronics engineer so I do know a bit about this kinda stuffl
