Seems like it all worked out in the end. If it is plug n play which part of the wiring harness do they connect to?

the Clearwater Lights CANopener is the key to the plug-n-play of this system ... it literally plugs into the data port connector under the seat on the Multistrada, so no wires to cut.

when the Multi requires the data port to be accessed, simply unplug the CANopener from the data port connector.

Very cool; however, I guess they've yet to update their website since I dont see any references to the CANopener for the Multi.

bravo Glenn Stasky and the team at Clearwater Lights!

Link to where you bought the spacers?

Thanks!

not bought ... 3D printed them for mounting the Darla LEDs onto the stock Ducati fog light mounting brackets.

if anyone wishes to either 3D print or even better perhaps, machine a set out of aluminum or steel ... here is a drawing with dimensions.

i am hoping that Glenn and his team will have the CANopener for our Multistradas ready for final testing/first article production piece this month (March).

as soon as the kits are ready, Clearwater will be putting together an introductory discount price for all Multistrada owners, and will publish the discount code then.

Do these lights include all the brackets required to install them in the same location as the Multistrada's GT set-up?
