2020 Ninja Cree light wiring
on: 19 May 20, 04:32:17
I bought these for my 2020 Ninja, note they do 1W and 3W versions, these are the 3W. Previously I have had bullet lights for my 2013 and 2016 models.

There may be some repetition here re dash removal for the 2017-2019 models?
To start:
1. Remove the windshield - 4 allen bolts
2. Remove the front upper cowling each side of the tank. 1 pop rivet, 1 allen bolts, 3 lugs. Slide forwards


3. Remove the Meter cowling TOP fixings - 2 pop rivets, 2 allen bolts


4. Slide down the top nose cone piece.


5. Remove the meter cowling back fixings - 2 allen bolts per side. (1 pop rivet and 1 allen bolt per side already removed in 2 above)


5. You can now see the meter cowling instrument cluster connector. Slide off the boot, depress the catch and remove the connector. You can now see the last bolt retaining the meter cowling






6. Meter housing back

All this to get at the accessory connector behind the headlamp! It's tucked way down and taped up to the main loom.
There are two connectors, one for the heated grips and one for the 12V accessory socket - this is the one to use for these lights.

I connected to the accessory connector by using pins and grommets from my Sodial kit. The alternative would be to cut off the connector and use your own.


I mounted the lights in the air duct using double sided tape, ran the wiring into bullet connectors each side (so panels can be removed) before continuing to the accessory connector. Checked all was working and then re-assembled everything.
Main and Cree lights


Running lights only






I hope teh above may be of use to others!

I used those accessory connectors for my USB port, you can eaily access them by taking off the LHS fairings.

I do like where you've positioned the DRL's  :062:

Hi guys,
Is it possible to use DRL's on Ninja 2020 with main lights off?
Because I wanted to do this on my 2017, but apparently running lights come on, when you turn the ignition, but when bike is running, there is no option to turn main lights off, right?

Cheers

EU regulations state motorcycles must have the light on, so you'd have to manually find a way around this  :006:

Hmmm why would you want to turn your lights off to make yourself less visible and then fit more lights to presumably make yourself more visible I detect a flawed logic  :027:
