Trunk interior lights

Postby 981500se » Tue Sep 01, 2015 9:34 pm



I am going to add some led strip lights to the interior of my trunk and bags. Has anyone else added any lighting for the interior?

Several of us (myself included) have added interior lighting to our trunk and bags. Mine are wired to the "always on" side of the fuse box, so they work when the bike is switched off. I have normally-closed magnet switches that I installed in each bag and the trunk that turn the lights off when the trunk lid or bag lid is closed.

You can read about it here: Interior trunk lighting

Yes! Great write up. That is an excellent idea with the magnetic switch. I was just gonna have a flip switch but not anymore. Thanks again!
