Coocase S48 Wiring Question

Hello all,

I just purchased the CooCase S48 from twistedthrottle for my Wee.

Here's my question:
Is the DL-650 a Non-CANbus bike when it comes to the run/brake lights?
In other words, is it okay to run the yellow coocase wire directly to the taillight or do I need to install a dual-function CAN-bus adapter?

Here's some info for those who bought it or are looking to buy it:
Official Page:

Twisted Throttle Link for the Deluxe Version:

Twisted Throttle Link to the Basic Version.
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/5116/726/

A thread that has some really good information on both mounting and wiring and pictures as well.

My opinion so far
It seems great! Spacious enough to fit one full face helmet and my jacket for when I am alone or two full faced helmets when I am riding with the Mrs. Either way, there's still room to spare for gloves or other small items.

Mounting
I installed the mounting kit by following the instructions on the twisted throttle site. This part was pretty straightforward without any hassle.

Wiring
The deluxe version comes with the wiring kit and instructions.

No Canbus. The tail light hot is gray under the fender and brown in the sheath to the left of the under seat tool tray. The ground is black/white and the brake light hot is white/black throughout.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Smile CooCase S48 Photos

Thanks for the replies! I got it all working now!
Here are some photos. I think it actually looks pretty good for such a large case.

@ hamblinc
The wiring harness from Eastern Beaver is not necessary. Everything you need comes with the package.

I have one little heads up for you about your CooCase that might save you some grief. If you are not riding your bike for a few days be sure and either plug in a battery tender, or, take your CooCase off your bike. It will drain your battery in as little as 10 days to 2 weeks. That neat little remote unlock feature is a 12v power hog and it is always on.

I really like my S48 CooCase, but, wish it wasn't so hard on the battery. I've considered doing away with the electrical hookup and just using the key, but, I really like using the remote.

Thanks for the heads up!
I was thinking it would be pretty easy for somebody to cut off the wire and the alarm system would be rendered useless.
The other thing I was wondering about was if the key fob is water proof.

Waterproof, I would seriously doubt, but judging by the way my coocase key fob has held up for the last year with various wet/rainy riding conditions, it's water resistant and does just fine.

LOL Mine blinks when the alarm goes off. I don't think there's any adjustments that you can make, but I could be wrong. I would contact the manufacturer if you really wanted to know.
I think the alarm "system" is just that small extra incentive. It takes a lot for that thing to go off, and even then, you would have to be standing near it to notice.
