Givi side cases racks install question.

Contemplating the purchase of Givi hard cases for my 2016 Bandit. I understand that the rear turn signals have to be relocated back onto a Givi supplied bracket that fits the rear license plate light fixture.

Here's my question. Are the rear turn signals plug and play? Do I simply unplug the turn signals from some wiring harness, move them rearward, and then plug them back in, or does it require some rewiring, like with solder iron, etc. Is the harness under the seat? I removed the seat and it appeared that some wiring from the back was all zip tied together. Cut the zip tie and move then re-zip tie the wires? Sorry if my post is confusing, but Givi website is sorely lacking on the details of how to install, and YouTube is only partially helpful. Thanks Peabrain.

Harness is under seat next to the back light. Bilnkers do have connectors.

You may need to cut the zip tie, but there's enough slack in the blinker wires that you shouldn't have to cut those -- just unplug, re-thread/relocate, and re-plug.

I had to add about 6" of wire to the turn signals on my FZ1.

No problem! The wiring will reach , just have to reroute it. I had that same deal about 7 years ago going to Givi bags. I since went with a different rear signal light set up. If I can find a pic, I'll post it. Been a few years since doing that.

Well, can't find it, Next time I go out to the garage, I'll take a pic of what I'm running now with the Givi bags.

Re: Givi side cases racks install question.

Thanks everyone for the reply's, I put a Throttlemeister on today, and was looking at the wires. May do a test run, just to see the amount of slack, before I order the brackets.

It's a great bike!

Thanks for the photos. Our old brains are only a few years apart, and it sure shows me a alternative for moving the lights to the givi bracket.
