    Iconic is now home.
    Yes the top box has central locking. It even has a built in light!
    Currently investigating the bluetooth functions. I have a Sena 20S headset, IPhone 5S and a Nav 5.
    If I have issues I’ll be back for more advice.
    Regards to All.

    .
    They all have the built-in courtesy light, and that light will completely flatten the battery if you leave the top box open to air for a week or two after a trip. DAMHIK !   :-X


    A high level brake light can be fitted in the trim at the back of the lid - a pretty good safety feature I think.   :)

      Many Thanks
      Yeah the brake light added to the box sounds worthwhile.
      Is the wiring of a light complicated?

        Ah, the very useful top box interior light.
        Didn't know I had one, found it on a Monday morning, after leaving the bike on Friday afternoon.
        Bike started fine, but now if I need to leave to box open, i close the catch which puts the light out.
        :)

          I had the brake light fitted by the dealer before I picked the bike up, so I don't know how complicated it is. 
          Since there is no extra wiring external to the top box, I would guess that it should be plug and play (but you'd be safer asking the dealer how much the charge for fitting would be - that will give you an indication of the time involved.

            I'll try to remember that for next time - Thanks !   ;D

              The Top Box brake light was easy on mine. Two screws to remove blank, the wiring existed so just plug and play, two screws back to secure, job done.

                For clarity are you saying the wiring to the brake light wiring of the bike exists in the top box?
                So I could purchase the brake light and DIY?

                  Mine was there. Take out the screws and see if the wire is there. Its only a few minutes to check.

                    Good Idea.
                    I’ll have a peep tomorrow.
                    Thanks

                      Yes you were 100% correct.
                      There is a plug to wire into.
                      I assume the brake light will come with the wire connected to it with the reverse plug?
                      I’ll send you a link to the brake light I’m planning to purchase for your opinion.
                      Having taken the panel for the brake light off the box for inspection I am struggling to work out how to remove the blank that the light will replace?
                      I don’t want to force it and do damage?
                      Any ideas?
                      Thanks

                        Theres a surround to remove. This picture is not very good but it shows the surround holding the light in the small image.
