DOWNLOAD, INSTALL & CONFIGURE THE SOFTWARE
INSTALL THE EZCAN UNDER THE SEAT
You will be installing your ezCAN under the seat. You can secure the ezCAN with the velcro strips provided after the accessories have been plugged in.
ROUTE AND CONNECT THE BATTERY WIRES
Route both the ezCAN power supply cables forward to the battery. Disconnect the battery wiring harness terminals from the battery and connect the ezCAN wires to the battery before re-connecting the factory wires.
IMPORTANT NOTE: First, unplug the battery negative wire and only attach it at the end again. This is good practice whenever you work on your bike’s electronics.
PLUG THE EZCAN INTO THE DIAGNOSTIC PORT
- Unplug the cap from the bike’s diagnostic port.
- Plug the HEX ezCAN vehicle harness into the bike’s diagnostic port.
- There is an extension port available for accessories such as the KTM ABS Dongle
That’s how easy it is!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not connect the ezCAN to any other similar looking connector or to any other part of the motorcycle’s wiring harness. If you do, the ezCAN will not function
CONNECT ACCESSORIES USING COLOUR CODING
The HEX ezCAN kit includes eight stub connectors with male connection terminals. The eight stub connectors are made up of the following types:
– 4 x three wire stub connectors
– 4 x two wire stub connectors
If you have 3-wire auxiliary lights, use the 3-wire stub connectors. If you have 2-wire auxiliary lights, use the 2-wire stub connectors that only have power and ground wires.
Use the blanking plugs to protect any unused output circuits.
Match the colour-coded wire to the correct accessory. The output circuit functions can be configured using the HEX ezCAN software. The solid Red, Blue, Yellow and White wires are the positive supply. The black wires are battery negative. The dual coloured wires are brightness control lines for 3-wire lights.
Connect the terminals of the high-power stub connectors to the correct female terminals on the ezCAN.
Connect the spotlight’s ground wire to the ground wire of the stub connector.
If you are installing spotlights equipped with a third wire for light-intensity control, connect the spotlight control wire to the control wire of the stub connector. If the spotlight only has two wires, use the two wire stub connectors.
STEP 7: CONNECT THE GREEN HORN INPUT CONNECTOR (HORN TRIGGER WIRE)
Find the standard horn on your motorcycle. Connect the female one-pin plug of the green wire to the standard horn. On most models, the horn is located underneath the headlight or front fairing. If you want to install an accessory horn, connect the accessory horn to the chosen high-power output stub connector on the ezCAN.
HEX UP-DOWN switch
Aux Lights can be toggled on and off from the bike controls, but brightness can only be adjusted using the software or the optional switch.
The optional switch mentioned above is an accessory for KTM ezCAN units which enables further control of Aux Lights on the move (toggle on/off and brightness control). This is only currently available for KTM devices. You can purchase the switch here.
MAKING THE INSTALLATION EASIER WITH THE ezCAN EXTENSION KIT
The HEX ezCAN Extension Kit provides you with everything that you need to connect your front auxiliary lights, brake lights and horn to the ezCAN, with additional connectors to facilitate other accessories. In addition, the kit also provides:
- Four extension wires
- 1m cable that can be trimmed to the correct length
- Female connectors with terminals and seals are provided so that they can be used when cable is trimmed to length
- Male connectors to be used on your auxiliary lights and wires to your accessories
- Heat-shrink to finish off sheath when cable is trimmed
- Sheathing for finishing of wiring on the light side
- You can also connect the output stubs to the extension cable to wire up your aux lights
STEP 9: TEST THE INSTALLATION
Most newly installed accessories can be tested simply with the ignition “ON”, but some brake functions will require the bike to be in motion and traveling above a certain speed. For example, emergency braking requires deceleration of more than 21km/h/s (kilometres per hour per second).
SAFETY NOTICE: Test and check your installations and accessories in a safe, controlled environment. Caution is advised at all times. Extra vigilance is required when testing new features or accessories. You do so at your own risk.
