Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: I use the CAN-Switchbox for the first time, what do I have to consider?
A: The best way is to download the latest version of our manual. There everything in it what you need. Just make sure that you use the appropriate operating instructions for the box.

F: Are there different versions of the CAN-Switchbox and do I need different operating instructions?
A: Both yes. If your box has a serial number 899 and smaller, please use the 'tlt-manual_rev-4.x.pdf'. If the serial number is 900 and higher, you need a 'tlt-manual_rev-6.x.pdf'.

Q: I just want to replace the speedometer, do I have to connect the RUN (M12)?
A: No, the RUN connection (M12) is only needed if the fittings are replaced. We recommend our cable set Handle-Bar for fitting conversions.

Q: If I want to replace my handlebar fittings later after a speedometer conversion, do I need a new CAN switchbox or an update?
A: No, our CAN switchbox detects changes automatically and adjusts itself automatically without you having to do anything.

Q: I connected to the CAN switchbox power supply and HD-LAN (CAN). After a short while, the power LED goes out of the box. What can I do?
A: The new CAN switchbox will go into standby mode after about 30 seconds unless it receives any messages. Probably when connecting CAN-High / CAN-Low was reversed. Please check the wiring, then it should work.

Q: The high-power outputs (M2-M9) are not working, what am I doing wrong?
A: Surely only forgot to connect the switched plus (+12 volt ignition power) to M10 CAN switchbox. This is the common supply of all high-power outputs.

Q: I would like to use the original handlebar fittings to operate the TRIP of my new MG-Mini, without having to install an additional button anywhere. Is this possible for you?
A: Yes, the MG-Mini Trip-Input only has to be connected to M11.

Q: If I only want to use the TRIP (M11) on the middle bar, do I have to connect GND (M1) and + 12V (M10)?
A: If no high-power outputs (M2-M9) should be used, then not.

Q: What is the input LED on the CAN-Switchbox for?
A: The input control LED illuminates whenever one of the inputs L2-L12 is pulled to ground (GND). However, this only works when the ignition is switched on and communication with the BCM is correct.

Q: What is the output LED on the CAN switchbox for?
A: The turn-output control LED lights up whenever one of the turn signals is also on. However, this only works when the ignition is switched on and communication with the BCM is correct.

Q: Why does the new speedometer show no speed and speed?
A: If necessary, the outputs R5 and R6 must each be wired with the supplied pull-up resistors to + 12Volt (Manual-Page 6). The Resistor should have 2-8 kOhm. Carefully for example with a shrink sleeve, isolate the resistors!

Q: Why do you have the same outputs of R7-R12 again on M2-M7?
A: On the motorcycle there are indicator lights that indicate a status or function. These are usually designed for small currents only (R7-R12). For this one usually uses small LEDs, which are wired depending on the version with a small Vorwiederstand to + 12Volt.
In addition, there are also signal lights or lamps that have a higher power. M2-M7 of our CAN-Switchbox are + 12V high-power outputs, each of which can provide up to 36 watts. These have a common supply line M10.

Q: The MG-Mini will stay on when I turn off the ignition, or some LEDs of the Msign-Mini will not work. Why?
A: The MG-Mini must be operated via switched + 12V, also some LEDs need switched Plus, some ground. Please read through MG's instructions, we have no control over that.

Q: Why would you recommend the additional connection of one of the hexagon threaded bolts with housing ground?
A: This is done only for safety reasons to prevent creepage currents and bad contact, as well as to ensure the correct function of the CAN switchbox.

F: Is it necessary that each input button has a separate ground line?
A: No, a common line is sufficient for all buttons, but with a very good earth connection. The CAN-Switchbox should also have a good connection to ground.

Q: I would like to connect a MG-MS-Pro to the CAN-Swichbox, does it work?
A: Of course, but you also need the MG-Breakout-Box-A. It's best to read this guide .

Q: How do I connect the cable kit?
A: The cable kit connection is as follows: [R1] blue = ground,[R2] red = +12V,[R3] green = can-low,[R4] yellow = can-high,[Rx] Right connector strip of the CAN-switchbox.

Q: Why goes the beamlight with the button on, but it does not go off?
A: Then you have a special HD version. Connect the beamlight input (L8) and also the flashlight input (L11) with the beamlight button.
