The 2005 uses a fuse system and isn't controlled by a computer like the CANBUS. My 2015 is all LED (including headlights). Current draw is not "monitored" on the older systems. That is why if you changed the turn signals to LED, you had to change the flasher unit along with it or you would get no flash or hyperflash. The turn flasher unit for incandescent bulbs run off of current draw.You can add a dozen LEDs before it comes close to just one incandescent light. That is why I swapped out my 2005 tail lights to LEDs. Saves on battery and alternator.

Pathfinder and Kury sell the same type of PnP harnesses with multiple connectors (Pathfinder has 8, Kury has 6). Just cause you can plug in that many lights does not mean that everything will work just fine. Also, when you mix and match manufacturers, you will get problems because the products have different power loads and resistive values.The trunk light that Goldstrike sells uses a plug and play harness that plugs into the bikes wiring under the seat without using any relays or isolators...it's harness has four connectors for even more Goldstrike lights if desired... so the Canbus system can't be that sensitive.
Thanks for the pic, do you have one in the daytime so I can see how well it fits?
Thank you for posting the pic, it does look like a good fit, is that the brake light or tail light on? My only thought is the bike tail lights have nice defused look, where as that one you can see the individual LEDs, I know it sounds an bit picky and I guess to get a light to have the same output as the OEM would be expensive and a lot of work.
Wow, you have added a few bits, is there any thing else you could add? 😂👍🏻 love the blue colour and thank you for sharing the video. I have been speaking with the light manufacturer to see if the will supply me a unit before final assembly so I can add a defuser so the tail light will look like the OEM ones. Can I ask, is it a good fit?I just fitted one last week, as part of my first farkling session on my new DCT here in the UK. I run it from a Show Chrome Electronic Fuse Block (52-942) – currently a steal at only around $50 by the way.
Here's a YouTube video of it:
