Givi E135 LED Brake Light Kit for V47 Top Cases
First try successful , yay
After reading a few reviews and watching the requisite YOUTUBE videos I was a little anxious about installing the lighting kit to my bike but with a little bit of research from others and dissasembling my Explorer ahead of time to see what sort of wiring was inside to work with I decided it was not to be anxious about at all.
I was not disappointed the kit is very thorough the workmanship is outstanding and all the leads are prepared for splicing into the very good connectors which come with the kit . If a neat install is on your list of must haves this kit will not disappoint .
is it worth three times the amount of the GIVi kit.
Absolutely. IT does three times as much and the workmanship of all the components is outrageously well done.
I hade the multi meter handla buat honestly it was so straight forward on the Triumph Explorer that anyone with electrical experience at all will breeze right through it. This is NOT TO SAY that you will not have to read and apply the directions carefully, you will and be rewarded for the care and decisions you make about the mating of bike to top case.
I went against some others and installed my connector on the right front edge of the bottom with the right handed element pointing toward the back of the bike where the lead would be going into the bike. The layout was so amazing and not one centimeter of wiring was cut to complete the instal !!!! YAY
If I didn't know better I would think it was a Triumph factory kit and was made specially for the V 47 and Triumph EXP as the fit was so amazing.
Well I could rant all day because the lighting was so much better than the rack fiasco because of peculiarity of the V 47 design I was sure the wiring would be a bother. NOT so .
Was it worth the much more cost of the GIVI model . In my view it was indeed. It does more , gives not just brake light but running lights turn signals and flashing yellow to red LEDs . The quality of the kit itself is the best i have come across stateside.

Not worth the money, does not work with the 2015 Versys 1000
Does not work on the 2015 Versys 1000. Kawasaki's face plate does not have a home for this installation. No alternative installation is provided with this kit.

Not a problem
The parts are kind of weird to figure out at first, but after looking over the graphics a few times and putting all the parts out it wasn't that tough to install, all said, it could come with better instructions, but it works great and I am pleased with the end result.

This product is a lemon
Very simply, these lights don't work.
Shockingly poorly thought through by GIVI, the connection is established by a contact point on the base of the case and a matching contact point on the stand. These 2 contact points have no system for keeping them in alignment and they move each time the case is put on or taken off.
So they don't work.
Do not touch this product. It is a complete waste of 60 dollars and all it does is make 2 unnecessary holes in you case and stand.

Well made great fit and finish but the topcase but very pricy in my opinion. The angular lines mimic my bikes lines very closely. If the lock could be keyed to the bike that would be great. A great choice for commuting or travel.

Good light kit, Weak instructions
Light kit install went OK. Got more help from a YouTube video (in Russian!) than the actual printed instructions. Lights work and look great! They really enhance visibility when braking. Unfortunately they only work as brake lights, not running lights.
