Admore lights for Givi E-52
Since the stock kit for the E52 gets modest reviews, I picked up the kit from Admore lighting.
The installation is straight forward. The E-52 has molded-in panels that can be cut out, allowing you to installed Giviís light kit. Admoreís kit uses the same location and adds an additional panel of LEDs to each the rear corners of the E-52. Givi cases are made of soft plastic, so an X-acto knife makes quick work of removing the outer plate.
The Admore kit comes with PowerTaps to tie into the various electrical points on the bike (power, ground, brake and turn signal wires). The wiring harness from Admore is split into a section that mounts inside the case and a section that mounts on the bike. A small barrell connector allows for a quick release in case you want to pull the E-52 off the bike.
The whole project took about 2 -3 hours, or rather it would have if the first controller from Admore had not been defective. Admore required a deposit before they would ship the replacement part to me. Iíll get the deposit back when I send them the bad part. Iím not too happy about that, but I am happy with the product.
These LEDs are not as bright as the hyperlights, but are still as bright as the tail & brake lights. The real benefits come from the greater surface area that is illuminated and the height of the illumination.
There are more photos of the installation on my web site.
