Triumph Trophy SE

Step 1 Drill a small hole on the rear fender. (5/32")

The rear fender has a liner that stops a few inches short of the bottom end of the fender

The wires are just long enough to reach so the hole should be 7/8” above a line drawn through the centers of the two license plate mounting bolts.

Step 2 Run the wire

Remove the tail light assembly (owner’s manual p. 160).

Run the wire up between the fender and liner

The wire can be fed through a large hole into the light assembly (See image 2)

Use the Posi-taps to hook into the existing license plate light illumination power.

Step 3 Calibrate and test!

Reassemble the light assembly and Vololights is installed.

We recommend setting the sensitivity level to Sports Touring mode.

Vololights requires calibration. Review instructions here.
