PostSubject: Givi TB19 & SR19 Install   Mon 06 Jun 2016, 18:02

Hi,
I don't have the backrest yet, but I have a '13 Swing and am prepping to install both a Givi TB19 backrest and an SR19 Monokey top case mounting bracket. Since I know Givi only sends cryptic pictogram instructions, I'm thinking there will be some confusion as to how these both go on the bike. I have confirmed that they are compatible, I'm just wondering if one of you kind experts will share some of your wisdom so I don't have to rip everything apart after realizing I put it all together upside down and backwards.
Thanks in advance.

P.S. Also, I'm wondering if anyone has any wisdom to offer in routing the brake light kit wiring from the Givi top case to the brake light wiring on the bike.

I do have a couple of tail/brake/running light connector plug n' play harness adapters available. Fits the 6P wire harness plug at the left rear. Similar to DennisB's Perfect Connector. Same OEM Hitachi wire harness plugs, same wiring color codes, and the same 20 ga wiring as Honda's. PM me if interested

Do an Archive search for Perfect Connector for a photo.

Tim

My advice is to sit and look at the diagrams well before you use them (the day before, perhaps). You'll mull them over in your mind and they'll become clearer.

When fitting the metal bits, put the two mounts for the rack flush on the spoiler with the back rest on top.
Put the four bolts up from underneath so the nuts tighten up on the metal bits you are fitting.

As I said elsewhere, it is relatively easy to get a flat spanner on the nuts which are now on top while it is impossible to get an Allen key on the bolt heads if they are on top when the plastic rack is in place. You need to wait before tightening then as all eight bolts may need wriggling to get them all lined up. So, don't tighten any of the bolts until they are all in place with the nuts, spacers and washers in place.

It isn't a very good explanation but if you drop in the bolts through the seat back and rack mountings first so the nuts are under the spoiler, you'll see what I mean!

This is where I threaded the cable through for my light-bar. If you used the same route be careful not to trap the wire when you tighten the bolt - there is room.

To wire the givi stop light , under the seat open the access panel the colour coded wires are easily access there using a service manual to identify the 2 wires

Tim's (Cosmic_Jumper) light connector, plug-n-play, makes wiring in any additional brake lights, turn signals a piece of cake without cutting into the OEM Honda wiring. The time it saves and how easy it makes this, is well worth the price.
