Top Box Lid - drilled small hole for wire exit.

Inside wire routing (red switch controlling white LED strips for seeing top box contents in the dark).

Bottom of top case wiring through back. Another hole drilled. It was very difficult to fish these wires through. Took lots of patience.

Inside bottom of top case - drilled hole for wires to exit out the bottom.

Outside bottom of top case - tied knots in the wires both inside & outside for strain relief.

DC plug run/brake - color coded with red shrink tube.

Interior white LED strip for seeing in the dark - currently off.

DC plug interior lights - color coded with white shrink tube.

Interior lights on - Done.

Nicely done!

Well weljo2001, thatís what makes people interesting. You do it 1 way, I do it another way, he/she does it yet another way. On a previous bike, I tried the puck type & didnít like them. The weight with the batteries would overwhelm the ďstickumĒ. I donít want to change batteries considering the bike has a battery readily available that I can tap into. Also didnít like how thick they are. Theyíd take up space that the helmets needed. Your suggestions would certainly be cheaper, but I was OK with spending more, getting brighter lighting, having auxiliary run/brake lights that no one else has & having exactly what I wanted. Not that I need to justify my choices. Iím very pleased with my end results. Thatís all that matters.

Posting these pictures of how it was done was in response to a request to see how I did it all. That person liked it enough to say he was going to try doing the same thing. I hope the pix helped.
