PostSubject: Connector for stop light in top case   Mon Apr 25, 2016 11:09 am

Hello friends, I have bought a top case and I have installed it on my Silver Wing.  I have put some leds on it, and then I have connected them with the brakes.  They iluminate very well. Smile
I have put a RCA female connector on the base, and a RCA male connector in the top case. I can remove the top case and carry it with me.  Later, when I put the top case in its position, both RCA connectors are connected, and the leds bright when I use the brakes.
The problem is when I am riding, the movement of the motorcycle goes to the top case, and the electrical connection between both parts of RCA fails.
Sometimes the leds bright, sometimes they don´t shine.  When they don´t bright, I apply a little of force on the superior part of the case, and they bright.
I am thinking in replacing RCA connection system with another kind of connectors, but I do not which one.  I do not want to connect by hand every time I put the top case, and later disconnect mannualy when I remove the top case.  I am looking for a connection system that connect both parts automatically. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

I have friends who have experienced the same problem with Givi's own connectors for top box lights.

I can see the desire not to have to manually connect and disconnect wires but I feel sure it's the only way to ensure a reliable connection.

If I were to do it I'd use these:

My lights are from Admire lights that I installed in my GIVI top box. It came with a push on, twist lock connector. Maybe Radio Shack might have something similar. I rarely remove my top box, so it is not a problem to manually disconnect the connector for the light. I like the additional rear lights, especially with my modulator.

I purchased these and they work great. Nice thing is they have 6 wires so you can also wire up running lights, brake lights and turn signals with this single plug. The wire is small so I'd make sure to always use LEDs with it. 2 pair of plugs for $8.30 is hard to beat.

I purchased my lights directly from Admorelighting.com for $143.00. I think that the new price is $129.
