    Default Magic Man does it again!!

    This time it is lights for the V35 Givi side bags. They can be installed with or without the Triple Play. With the Triple Play, the bag lights duplicate the action of the turn signals.

    We have the Triple Play, so it was a matter of taking panels off the bags, drilling a few holes in the bags, then almost plug and play for the rest.

    As usual, everything you need is included in the kit (except the drill and a screwdriver), Evan's instructions are flawless (pictures, included, even a reference to online, color, enlargeable ones), tho you do need to be able to hold the drill steady.

    So, we had to take a short trip (just so I could follow her and watch the lites). The Spyder is now among the most visible vehicles on the road IMNSHO (a tag recently held by the Cadillac STS (also many LEDs). From the back, it is quite obvious how wide the Spyder is (important, as from some angles, the bags hide the mudflap lights). We met up with another SpyderRyder, who was suitably impressed, as were the usual crowds in the various parking lots.

    Again - WELL DONE EVAN AND CREW!!


    (Note: Tried several times to upload pics and a movie - no luck.)

    I assume that these will work for the BRP version of the Givi bags. Correct? If so all I need is a price.

    Yes they will work with any GIVI V35 bag regardless. The MSRP for the kit is $141.95 with the standard harness.

    An optional eliminator harness is available for those who want to totally remove the stock turn signals and their mounting brackets, as an upgrade to the kit.

    Could, but no need - instructions in the kit from NMN include pictures, and there are color pics on their site (under install instructions).

    Got them just like you said and got the Givi lights installed last night...WOW! Look awesome! My daughter told me they were so bright it was giving her a headache. Got in the bed a midnight. Up a 4:15 started on the fender tips and mud flap LEDS abut 4:45 finished everything up by 7:00, except new sway bar.

    Note: for owners with BRP saddlebag system and NMN triple play. There is plenty of room for the quick connect harness under rear top mounting bracket of BRP brackets. I only removed 5 splash pan bolts. I passed the connecting wire going to triple play unit from outside to inside and worked it like that. I plan on leaving my bags on most of the time, but will use them on overnight trips.

    I also just installed the Givi lights on my Spyder, with the Industries 7 racks. My Spyder was still stock in the rear lighting area, so I removed the stock turn signals, installed the Givi led plates, and tied them into the optional Triple Play unit (NMN) which I also ordered. What a wonderful difference! I have VISIBLE running, brake, and signal lights coming from the outer bag lights and the stock brake lights. A truly worthwhile safety feature, and SO much better than any other motorcycle on the road. I cannot imagine anyone not seeing my Spyder now! Thanks again, Evan!
