Included instructions are near worthless. Illustrations in the instructions suggest that the two molded plugs in the top case can be tapped out with a hammer, though you absolutely need both a 1" and 3/4" hole saw for your drill to remove the plugs in the V47 (and the plug in the Givi top case mount) to allow installation of the two circular contact pieces (one required on the bottom of the case for when the case is removed, the other on the top for when the case is opened).
Aligning the 3M light strips with the individual brake light recesses in each lens is an absolute pain, and you get only one shot after removing the adhesive strip to put the light strips in place.
The included wire vampire taps are junk as they're prone to coming lose.
I strongly feel that the V47 should come with this brake light kit already installed, and leave it to the purchaser to install only the top case mount kit and related electrical assembly. However, I also would "suggest this product to a friend" because the V47 comes with what looks like a brake light lens in place, and drivers behind the V47 would not be out of line to expect to see brake lights even without this kit installed. You pretty much have to purchase this with the V47. (Posted on 2/10/2015)
