Givi E52: Going from Givi light kit to Ardmore


I recently received the Ardmore lighting kit for my Givi E52 trunk. The hole left by the original Givi electrical contact is much larger than what is required for the Ardmore lighting kit.

Has anyone else made this conversion? If so, what did you do to fill the hole or mitigate the issue?

I have the admore kit but did not move from Givi. Depending where you placed the hole I'll throw an idea out there. Rubber washers.

I left the Givi connector in the hole. Worked for me. Just cut off the wires.
