    I frequently stay at a motel about 5 miles from Clearwater's factory. Arraigned to pick up the Ericas with Canopener etc and installed them on my 2015 GS in the parking lot of the motel. Real straight forward and an easy install. Good instructions - along with this thread. All plug and play - don't need to do anything fancy.

    Great lights, great quality and RFB (Real Fuckin Bright). Very happy with them.

    Looks great! I am having the CW Darla's installed on my lower forks when my 15 ADV arrives. Free install with bike purchase is a great thing! I had a set of Darla's on my F800 and they outstanding and I loved the adjustability.

    just bought a 2017 Rallye with dealer installed Krista's on it, the on and off is controlled by touch on the signal cancel switch and the wonder wheel is used as the dimmer, it is a nice integration.

    I don´t want to create a new thread.
    Maybe someone can answer my two questions:

    1. Do you know if the CanOpener already works with the new digital Speedo (Option 6AB Connectivity)? This option is heavyly reliant on the wonderwheel - even more than the Navigator V - and I just want to make sure there aren´t any problems known.
    2. Is it possible to set the lights up, that they brighten up to 100% if the highbeams are switched on. But also: If I turn them completly off, that they don´t switch on, even if I flash the highbeams? I´d like them to stay completly off, if i choose to. (There are some strange rules here in Germany... ;) )

    Thank you very much in advance.
    Cheers

    I can't answer the first part, though I believe it does work.

    As to the second question, when you turn off the lights, they stay off until you turn them back on, even if you hit the high beam.
