System works fine when l run the bike. Shut it off and 20 - 30 secs later lights go off.
If l turn the key on then off, the lights just stay on and on and on.
Any ideas?

Thanks

Did you wire the IQ-160 yourself?
Where did you connect the red wire of the IQ-160?
Some of the switched 12Volts on the K1600 will stay on for 30 seconds after you switch it off.

Best regards,

Robert

Mine stay on almost a minute, don’t remember what circuit I used, I am sure it was the one recommended by Sheen though.

Thanks for the replies.
I did not wire the system, but the red power wire goes to the BMW female connector under the seat. Where you plug in charger.

You need to move the trigger wire to a switched wire. Go to Skene's website for wiring diagrams/locations.

Guy, I just researched this for you.

The person who wired your Skene controller did not take the feed from the correct place.

Using the din connector for the power is not correct. It should have been from the taillight.

See the diagram here but note the IQ160 was replaced by the IQ260 (you need to scroll down to find the IQ160 diagram):
