I think I've seen a pictorial and/or directions for installing a Bestem 929 here on this site, but I can't find it. Could someone point me to it and/or give directions for the install?

I have an early Christmas present! 929 with liner and brake lights!

Thanks.

jda,

This may help:

https://www.silverwing600.com/t31-givi-passenger-backrest-installation-pictorial

I did this for the Givi backrest.  On pic #6 you would drill 4 holes instead of the 2.  But when I installed my Bestem case I was more concerned with lining up the holes of the mount to the spoiler.  But this pictorial I did will help you take the spoiler off and I'm sure you can figure it out from there.  The 4 holes that need to be drilled out just happen to line up perfectly with the Givi mount since Givi made a point to design their mount to fit perfectly.

Also, when I drilled the holes and secured the mounting bracket to the spoiler I bought 4 rubber spacers so it would be off of the spoiler by about 1/2". If you don't use spacers the mounted bracket will be directly on your spoiler. At least it would have been with mine.

My Bestem Topbox came with a Bestem mounting plate. At the time (few years ago), it did NOT align with the "ready to drill" holes in the spoiler. I drilled 4 holes to match the Bestem plate.
NOTE: if you are going to carry a passenger, BEFORE drilling the holes for the topbox plate, I would attach the topbox to the plate and position it over the spoiler where it was "comfortable" for the back of your passenger.... then drill the holes there. I also used rubber washers to make the plate level as Jeff mentioned above. I also cut a 8"x8"x1/2" foam pad and placed it on top of the mounting plate under the topbox... which silences any rattles between the topbox and the mounting plate. billc.

As far as I am concerned, the Bestem 929 with running light and brake light is one of the best on the market for the money spent. I upgraded to the latest with the running light and really like it. Ordered with the liner and I like it also. You end up with two positive and 1 negative for a total of three wires. The most difficult part is soldering the small wires together.Smile

I just installed the Bestem 929 yesterday .  I also ordered the liner .
I did not bother with connecting the light .  
The important thing to remember is that pre-marked holes in the spoiler do not line up with the Bestem mounting plate.
I placed the plate on top and marked the holes to drill . You also need patience drilling holes, starting with a smaller drill bit then moving up in size .
Also , if you don't want to have to cut the Bestem mounting bolts ( they are way too long) you 'll need inch and quarter bolts. I used 5/16 by 1 and1/4 stainless ones .

My 2012 new-to-me Silverwing has a Bestem on the spoiler that I'm re-wiring to (1) remove the wires that were exposed in the underseat trunk, (2) to remove LED turn signal stick-ons that had aged poorly, (3) to make the box removeable (the box, in spite of being wired with a 6-wire connector, was not removeable because of the wire routing), and (4) to add an interior courtesy light. In the process, I got inside the box wiring and found some loose wires and not-so-pretty connections, so I'm redoing that now.
So my question is: has anyone been inside the wiring and noted the 4 wire bundle that comes from the wrap-around LED marker light bar? So far, I've found black to be common, and red to light most of the LEDs (seemingly random ones across the bar), and the green wire to light some other random parts of it. The yellow does not light anything. Some LEDs do not light at all, but not enough of them to matter much. I have also tried various combinations of +/- to see if any other color combinations light up. Nothing does.
I have to believe there's a logic to these 4 wires, but darned if I can find it. Has anyone here seen a wiring diagram for this box?

I put a Bestem box on one of my previous Silverwings. The box didn't have lights in it when I got it from the factory. I added some LED lights in the box under the red side panels for turn and stop functions. I used a four or five wire, thin cable to with a plug that I mounted under the bike's tailpiece. Worked well, and the Bestem box was well made and half the price of the Givi.
