I just received this today:

It is GIGANTIC. I will take pics when I mount it this weekend.

Also, what is the best way to wire the built in brake light?

DugleBogey,
You will enjoy the Bestem. I have had one on my Swing for the past couple of years. I don't ride with it on all of the time. I made a plate that mounts on to the Benstem mount and made a back rest for it with a high mount stop light. I really like it and use it most of the time. I use the Bestem when I go on trips like to the Black Hills of South Dakota etc.
I you look at my pictures in the Album section I think you will see the back rest.
Old Dave

Can someone, perhaps DennisB, recommend a disconnect so I can use his wiring harness and still remove the trunk when I want to ride without it?

Hi Guy's, I helped Gary (opalsboy) install the light kit for his GIVI top case. It went very easy and came with a disconnect connector for installation in the side of his case and the drill bit to drill the hole. Did your Bestem light kit have a disconnect connector? How many wires do you have coming from the top box?

Make sure you put fuses on the live wires for example Blade Fuseholder on same page.

If your Bestem light kit did not come with a dis-connect, you will need to install a small waterproof GLAND in the side of your box's bottom half so wires can exit. You can use a trailer pin type connector as a dis-connect.

Let me clear up a statement DennisB made about "HELPING Gary" with my Addmore light kit. He did not help me... he did it. I did provide the drill to drill the hole. So, I guess I did help him. The man is a genius. Just not very pretty. affraid

I am going to his place soon to "Help" him some more.

Here's a neat little connector that would work.

OR

OR (the one I like) a 5 wire if you have turn signals on your top box.

The bestem is installed. It has 2 wires so just for brakes. There is a hole pre-fitted for the wires. There are some kind of connectors on the wires but I don't like how they work so I think I will install my own disconnect where I want it.

Thanks for the help!

So all you need is a Perfect Connector with a breakout Ground and Brake light wire. That would be only $24.00 with free shipping when you get ready or if you need it
