Old thread I realize but I'm just trying to install a set of D2's I bought from TwistedThrottle on a '12 R1200R and have a question about the high beam trigger.

When I bought the lights I also purchased the suggested CANBUS adapter that lets me tap into the light socket for the always on connection. When you hooked up the high beam wire did you need one for this connection as well?

I just installed a set of D2's on my '08 R12GS - also bought the CANBus adapter for the 194 bulb. Additionally, I installed a TT PowerHub to manage a few connections.

Pretty sure that utilising the PowerHub negates the need for the CANBus adapter - haven't tried it (as it's already installed) but after looking over the documentation, and seeing what little comprises the CANBus adapter, I'm quite confident that using any switched lead (and one closer to the PowerHub!) would work with the D2 controller.

Regardless if you use the CANBus adapter or the PowerHub, connecting the blue 100% intensity wire to the white wire in the headlight bucket connector (via the supplied Posi-Tap) works great. Very nice to have the on/off button switch plus the low/high beam flexibility.

Now if TT could only make the controller box and the cabling connectors smaller all my concerns with this product would be removed. Great lights.
