Mouting CANopener
• Remove the seat from the bike and set aside.
• Locate the module under the seat, unplug the wiring harness from it and
plug your Clearwater CANopener in it’s place. Then plug the wiring harness
into the CANopener.
• Secure the CANopener to the plastic inner fender with provided Velcro
strip. Be sure to clean any dirt or dust from area before affixing the
CANopener.
• DO NOT mount the CANopener on top or touch the module.

Step 1: Disassembly
Gas Tank Shroud:
In order to remove the
gas tank shroud plastics
you must flip the plastic
back as shown to get to
the bolts. Follow images
continued on the next
page.
Page 6
Step 1: Disassembly
Your bike should look like
this after removing the gas
tank shroud plastics.
Re-Assembly:
• Follow the directions in reverse order to reassemble your bike.
Page 7
Step 2: Mounting The Lights
Fender Mount Overview: (detailed diagrams on next page)
• One side at a time, remove both fender bolts. Be sure to keep fender
from hanging in a fashion that damages it. Use a wire tie or piece of wire
to hold the fender until you are ready to install the new bolts. Inspect the
female threads on the brackets for dirt or foreign substance. If possible,
use compressed air (wear protective glasses) or small bottle brush to
clean the threads.
• Pre-assemble the lights, mounting bracket, shoulder washers (if
needed) and spacers with new bolts. Add 2 plastic washers to shoulder
washer to make up difference in thickness of front fender.
• Gently screw all bolts in hand tight. Inspect the bolt length and spacer
alignment before tightening the bolts. Assembly will resemble the
diagrams below.

Step 4: Wiring
Wire Routing:
• Be sure to route wires so that they cannot become tangled or caught
in either a suspension part or steering part. Check movement of both
steering and suspension before riding the bike.
• It is sometimes helpful to follow existing wire routing.
• Use a Posi-lock to connect RED wire from the trident adapter to the thin
RED wire from the relay harness (2 wires).
• Use a Posi-twist to connect GREEN wire from the trident adapter to the
two GREEN wires from the lights (3 wires).
• Use a Posi-twist to connect BLACK wire from the harness relay to the
two BLACK wire from the lights (3 wires).
• Use a Posi-twist to connect RED wire from the harness relay to the two
RED in Glenda, WHITE in Darla wires from lights (3 wires).
• Plug the Trident Adapter into the Data Cable
• Run the RED and BLACK power wire, and Data Cable along the air
intake up to the battery. (Fig.1) and (Fig. 2)
• The BLACK power wire with the ring terminal goes to the negative ( - )
side of the battery. The RED power wire with the inline fuse holder goes
to the
positive ( + ) side of the battery. Remove the fuse while wiring
the lights to prevent any accidental shorts.
• Plug the Data Cable into the CANopener.

Step 4: Wiring
Using a Drip Loop
• Though our lights are sealed for ultimate all weather use, sometimes water
sneaks by. To make sure this doesn’t happen, we highly suggest using a drip loop.
When installing the wiring to your lights, use a drip loop as shown below. This will
keep water from dripping directly into the light and instead fall off before it can
reach the back of the body.
• To do this just leave a bit of extra wiring and let it hang below the light. You
could make a complete loop if you like, but just make sure the wire hangs below
the light as shown below.
No Drip Loop
Page 10
With Drip Loop
Step 5: Aligning the Lights
Alignment:
• Ask an assistant to help you
with this procedure. Make sure the
bike is on level ground and have
an assistant sit on the bike. With a
right angle board or object, position
the board on the floor and slide it
up to the light. The goal is to adjust
the lights so that the light is level
with the ground. Passengers and
luggage may alter the alignment
of the light, so further adjustments
may be needed. You may find that a
slight downward angle (5 degrees)
is helpful.
Posi-Products Installation Instructions:

DIMMING CONTROL (WonderWheel equipped bikes)
Two modulated brightness channels are adjustable using the
WonderWheel:
• Each channel is programmable for ten brightness settings (10100%) in three different modes (day, night, and high beam). Settings
are stored in non-volatile memory, and will be remembered when
restarting the bike or disconnecting the battery. The dimmer is
programmed at the factory for the most useful day/night settings.
• To enter dimmer program, you now must first press the Turn Signal
Cancel (TSC) switch once before tilting the Wonderwheel Left or
Right for dimming. Press the WonderWheel to the LEFT for two
seconds to engage the Darla/Glenda channel dimmer, or press it
to the RIGHT for two seconds to engage the Erica/Krista channel
dimmer. The lights being adjusted will flash twice to confirm
programming mode. Adjust the output by rotating the WonderWheel.
• While adjusting the brightness mode, the second set of lights (if
installed) will automatically dim to their lowest setting in order to
easily observe the adjustment.
• Exit programming mode either by waiting for approximately two
seconds or pressing the turn signal cancel button. The lights will
flash once to confirm.
• Remember that each set of lights is adjustable for day, night and
high beam. Day and night settings are automatically selected by the
ambient light level reaching the bike’s photocell. To adjust the night
dimmer, simply cover the photocell at the top right corner of the dash
display using your hand or a piece of tape. Activate the high beam to
adjust the high beam setting.
WARNING: When configuring the dimmer, be sure that the WonderWheel
is not making adjustments to other functions of the onboard systems.
Turn off the entertainment system to prevent volume adjustment or
unwanted channel changes, and select the home screen on the GPS.
DIMMING CONTROL (non-WonderWheel bikes)
If the motorcycle does not have the GPS Prep Package
(WonderWheel), your light kit will come equipped with a handlebar
mounted analog/digital encoder knob for dimming control. Separate day
and night settings and the dual intensity dimmer will not be available.
