Thread: Admore light bar

    Admore light bar

    I wanted more brake light; the Admore bar seemed like the best bet. That said, I doubt I'd use the wired version again as it was a pain to install. The bluetooth version is probably all you need. Admore suggests drilling a hole for the wiring harness for their light bar. I did not. Here's how I did it.

    1) remove both rear side panels on each side (one painted, one black plastic). I used a parts fiche to see where the bolts and press on mounts are.

    2) remove license plate/tail light assembly. Let this dangle on the wires. Note that the bolts holding this look similar to the bolts for the side panels but they have different shoulders.

    3) snake the light bar wire harness through the space for the store wiring harness. Some fiddling is required to get the last bit into the area underneath the seat. Using safety wire as a follow through helps. Removing the top case holder helps.

    4) wires --brake is grey w/ red stripe, blue is right turn signal, black w/ white stripe for left

    5) switched power: The fuse box is behind the left painted side panel. There are two fuse holders. Towards the front of the bike from these holders is what appears to be a blank fuse holder (i.e., wires go in but there are no fuses). The red w/ green stripe is switched. Using this, the light bar tail light stays on for about 45 seconds after the bike is switched off.
    YMMV

    I am now having trouble with this. Applying the brake while have the turn signal on makes the whole thing go screwy.

    Edit: after some discussion w/ Admore tec support, I will be upgraded to the Bluetooth enable bar that definitely works on the XR. If you want one of these, you have to get that model.

    Glad you’re getting your problem resolved by the manufacturer, CC!

    We added an Admore lightbar to Mrs-K’s new/used RS last year.
    It nicely augments the “Tidy Tail” installed by the prior owner.
    We believe in Increased Conspicuity; added Denali D2 LEDs to the front forks as well...

    That worked. Yo have to scroll down on the configuration page and enable the two lamp function.

    If I were to mount another I'd work longer at feeding safety wire through the gap the stock wire goes through and use it to pull the light bar wiring harness through.

    And the light bar staying lit for a bit after the bike is turned off is normal per Admore.
