Finally picked my bike up today. I had two sets of Darlas installed and the Clearwater Betsy, with the Billy brake light. When the tech had it apart, I had him do the Denali air horn as well and run my trigger wire for my Neutrino I installed.

The interesting thing with the Billy brake light is you get a handle bar mounted red LED that illuminates to tell you what the brake light is doing. It illuminates always for the running light part, and when you hit the brake it gets bright. I never knew that even came with the kit!

Sure I could have done a hack job and probably never had it right, so I let the BMW tech do the rest that I didn't finish. This guy is good. Very meticulous work, with no scratches anywhere. Clean wiring jobs!

The Clearwater Betsy set up allows the front turns to run continuous for more visibility. It plugs in and is Can Bus friendly as well.

Both sets of Darlas are separately controllable through the turn switch and wonder wheel. I got the new harness from Clearwater that allows this full control when running two sets of Darlas. Just like on the bigger lights they sell. Nice thing is when I hit the factory fog switch, nothing happens. No codes are thrown when I do this.

When installing the Denali horn, I asked if he could leave my factory horns on as well. He did leave one of the two factory horns on with the installation of the Denali air horn. He had enough room to do it that way. It is all out loud! He also said he went into the programming and did something so no horn codes will show up when using the horn. I tried it several times and its works as he said it would. I am very happy!

Sorry for the sideways photos, still haven't figured this bug out. No matter how I load the pictures they are always turned the wrong way. More perplexing than the bike at the moment!

Could you post a pic of your Neutrino please? Curious to see where they installed it.

I actually ran the Neutrino myself all the wiring, mount, etc. Except the yellow trip wire. I didn't want to cut in on a wrong wire and I didn't feel like taking the tail light apart to find the correct wire to use. I let him run that one.

I put it on a RCU plate and used velcro. In the one picture where my finger is pointing. I took the left canoe off and ran the temperature probe down underneath and toward the front of the bike. Fastening it with zip ties!

Thanks for the pics. I had an RCU plate on mine too, but had to take it off when I installed a 1-pc Russell Day Long. The release mechanism for the 1-pc seats goes on the bosses where the RCU would be screwed down.

Have to do a re-install to get all my gizmos to fit - Neutrino, Clearwater CANopener, Motochello and Sena SM10.

No problem! I had the same dilemma. Stick with the one piece seat and figure out where to put the stuff. Or get a different set up. I I didn't like the one piece factory low seat. I went with a Sargent seat. I like it so far. IF things get bad, I will get a RDL and deal with any issues later.
