    Denali 20,D2 lights

    Just ordered a set of Denali lights, question?
    Does tank have to come off or can I route the wires underneath the black plastic panels that fit over the frame.
    Just watched a video on tank removal and it scared me 🤣
    I’m just thinking of wires direct to battery, to both lights and bar mounted switch.

    Cheers

    If you are scared of taking the tank off then you should reconsider doing any wiring. Would not wire to the battery either, Denali make a small unit that fits under the seat, a canbus controller, and the lights plug into that.

    Yep seen can bus controller (extra £200)
    Just wondered if anyone had routed wires under the black plastic panels.

    Pretty simple to wire.

    I can guarantee that at some point you will forget to turn the lights off if they are wired directly to the battery. Better option would be to wire in  a relay using a switched source. then the best way has been mentioned(CanSmart)

    Go for the Gen2 Cansmart and you won't go far wrong, dead easy to install and it does everything for you, plus some pretty good extra features such as 'Strobe' when you hit the horn or when you hit the Flash to pass button 3 times.
    Steve from A Bike Thing has done some very good videos on Youtube.
    Denali lights certainly get you noticed and car drivers do seem to take notice and give you a wider berth than normal.
    Oh and yes, I routed the cables under the black plastic bits.

    Don't bother using Denali shop UK they are useless and they're communication is virtually nil.
    I ended up cancelling my order with them and buying from Steve at ' A Bike Thing' who was extremely helpful.
    I think that the Cansmart for the S1000XR is in short supply at the moment, so you may have to wait a while, always ask if they have them in stock before you order.
    Its the same Cansmart as the K1600.
    If you want to be seen at the rear too, buy a licence plate light  (Simply hooks up to the Cansmart) That really gets you noticed.

    Fitted lights today, using the Denali kit I’d bought, can’t get hold of a can smart (no stock) so wired up under black plastic frame panels.
    Switch on bars and feed taken from accessory socket on LHS under seat, switches off after 30 seconds.
    Sorted.

    Thanks folks.

    If you wire direct to the battery which is recommended in the Twisted Throttle install vid as thats the cleanest power, then post tap the white trigger wire in the denali loom to a feed that comes live with the ignition such as one that goes into the accessory socket then the lights will switch off with the ignition even if the handlebar light switch is left on. I have done it this way with no issues and no need for any additional can bus connectors.
