    Routing wires ??

    Just fitted 2 pairs of spots and a Denali Sound Bomb. Gotta say, I've never worked on such a difficult bike to route wires. :087: every space on the bike, under the fairing, is packed, very neat but packed tight.  :006:

    Anyhow, after much head scratching I've managed to fit the Hex ezcan with the lights and horn.

    Configured thus...  :084: all 4 lights on all the time, (this may change) Lower lights turn off when i indicate, because they are mounted at the same point as the indicators. All 4 flash when horn is activated, after 0.25 seconds. All 4 flash alternatively with the hazard warning lights. Video to follow later. Migraine sufferers beware! flashing lights and loud horn.  :087:

    Glad you got it fitted ok Windy. And yes running the wires to the front of the bike was 'fun'. I found an extra long cable tie fed through the tiny gaps alongside the frame with the end of the cable attached helped me get the cables where I wanted them.

    I bought the extra wiring kit with the Hex ezcan, used the 2 long cables down the left hand side to the spots, linked them with right hand side over the radiator area. Used the wire for the horn down the right hand side.

    Used the heavy duty light brackets from cymarc for the upper lights and fastened the lower lights direct to the fixing point for the indicators. When I get to the garage later I'll take some photos..  :028:

    So, configured the lights but I don't like the config so I'm going to re configure
    A
    and have only the lower lights turn off when i indicate and have the upper lights stay on.

    Only the lowers alternate with the hazard lights and only the uppers flash when the horn is activated..  :028:

    I configured mine to have the  side I was indicating on turn off, so left turn left driving light off  but the right still on and vice versa .

    Curious about this Cansmart thing now, what is this exactly? Does it override the "light brains" of the bike and allows you to program custom lighting options for scenarios kind of like a RGB keyboard or something like that? Can you control all the original equipment lights with this or only additional lights? For example can I program that when I press the "Flash" button (pull high beam switch in) it flashes 3x instead of just coming on temporarily? Can I do the same with brake lights or indicators? Maybe have the indicators on as a sort of running light like most hondas?

    The CanSmart/EZCan is purely for auxiliary items, it has channels for 2 sets of driving lights,  a rear light and the horn. Each circuit can be configured separately. I guess really you can use each channel for anything 'extra' you have on the bike.

    This may help -

    Its actually a very handy add on...I use 1 channel for my heated jacket...( I dont use heated pants or gloves) and I use the heated grips switch to control it .makes for a much cleaner install and it's  easier to operate.
    After some testing with different settings, I ended up with if the grips are on low the jacket is at 60% and grips on high, the jacket is at 90%....for me this is perfect.
