STEP 1:

GETTING STARTED

Download and install the HEX ezCAN configuration software. Once you have installed the HEX ezCAN device, use the USB cable provided to connect to it, then, open the HEX ezCAN configuration software.

STEP 2:

SET CIRCUIT FUNCTIONS

The setting of circuit functions differs for ezCAN for BMW Gen II (Step 2A) and ezCAN Gen I (Step 2B). It is the same for ezCAN for BMW Gen II and Harley Davidson (Step 2A). Please refer to the section relevant to your device below. 

If you are unsure which device you have, refer to our FAQ on this which can be found here.

2A: How to set circuit functions for ezCAN for BMW Gen II & Harley Davidson

Set the output circuit functions according to the type of accessory that you have connected to the circuit, e.g. auxiliary lights, horn, brake or accessory.

Click to the currently set circuit function and select the correct function from the available list.

 

2B: How to set circuit functions for ezCAN for BMW Gen I (2 & 3 wire devices)

Set the output circuit functions according to the type of accessory that you have connected to the circuit, e.g. auxiliary lights, horn, brake or accessory.

Click to the currently set circuit function and select the correct function from the available list.

 

STEP 3:

SET FUSES

Select the appropriate fuse level for each circuit by clicking on the fuse value and selecting a value from the list. The fuse settings are preset but can be changed according to your requirements. Double-check the Amps the accessory will draw and set the fuse level accordingly.

STEP 4:

CONFIGURING AUXILIARY LIGHTS

For safety and visibility reasons, the bike’s lights conform to the different presets for day and night riding – based on readings from the vehicle clock.

The HEX ezCAN extends this functionality to the accessory lights so that their brightness can be set separately for day and night, dim and bright. The sun slider (☀) sets the brightness for day riding, while the moon (☾) slider sets the brightness for night riding. Dim and bright settings are done individually, hence the two different icons.

Auxiliary lights can be activated or deactivated 

Auxiliary lights one can be toggled on and off by holding in the turn signal cancel button for 3s. Auxiliary lights two can be toggled on or off by triple clicking the turn signal cancel button.

If configured, the brake, accessory and horn outputs will remain active when the front auxiliary lights are deactivated.  

Auxiliary lights one can be activated or deactivated by holding the Info button until the lights toggle on or off (hold for approximately 7s). To toggle auxiliary lights two on and off, hold in the clutch while holding the Info button until the lights toggle on or off.

If configured, the brake, accessory and horn outputs will remain active when the front auxiliary lights are deactivated.

Auxiliary lights one can be activated or deactivated by holding the trip/trigger button until the lights toggle on or off (hold for approximately 7s). To toggle auxiliary lights two on and off, hold in the clutch while holding the trip/trigger button until the lights toggle on or off. 

If configured, the brake, accessory and horn outputs will remain active when the front auxiliary lights are deactivated.

Additional options for auxiliary lights

Turns the corresponding accessory lights off when a turn signal (indicator) light is active. This prevents the turn signal from disappearing in the brightness of accessory lights.

Strobes the accessory lights when the horn is active.

Strobes the accessory lights when the flash-to-pass button is pressed quickly three times.

This flashes the hazards and forward-facing auxiliary lights alternately, preventing hazards from disappearing in the brightness of accessory lights and adding extra visibility to oncoming traffic.

Please note: This mode is only valid for three wire devices. 

If you are using three wire auxiliary lights, switch this mode on for dimming to work correctly. 

Modulates light at a frequency of 4Hz modulation.
Modulates intensity between the set intensity and 70% of the set intensity by default. The modulation variation can be set in the extra settings.
Modulation is active only during the day when low or high beam is active. 

Control brightness

Control brightness via BMW Motorrad MultiController (Wonder Wheel / Selector Wheel) 
The MultiController can be used to adjust the brightness of the forward-facing auxiliary lights. Hold MultiController left for more than 3s to activate this function. The auxiliary lights will flash twice to indicate the brightness can be adjusted. Rotate up and down to adjust the brightness of current setting. When done, the configuration mode will timeout after 10s of no activity on the MultiController. 

The brightness of Auxiliary Lights 2 can be adjusted by holding the MultiController to the right for more than 3s. Auxiliary lights 2 will flash twice to indicate the brightness can be adjusted.   

Control brightness via BMW with the Info button.
Press and hold the Info button until the auxiliary lights flash twice quickly (approximately 5 seconds) to enter dimming mode. Each consecutive press of the button will increase the brightness by 10% when in dimming mode. The brightness setting will reset to 0% after reaching 100%. Holding clutch in and pressing the Info button increments brightness for auxiliary lights 2 by 10%. Dimming mode will exit after 5s if there is no Info button activity.


There is currently no way to alter the brightness of aux lights on R1200’s without an Info button.

The trip/trigger button can be used to adjust the brightness of the forward-facing auxiliary lights. Press and hold the trip/trigger button until the auxiliary lights flash twice quickly (approximately 5 seconds) to enter dimming mode. Each consecutive press of the button will increase the brightness by 10% when in dimming mode. The brightness setting will reset to 0% after reaching 100%. Holding clutch in and pressing the trip/trigger button increments brightness for auxiliary lights 2 by 10%. Dimming mode will exit after 5s if there is no trip/trigger button activity.

STEP 5:

CONFIGURING REAR & BRAKE LIGHTS

Brightness: The rear light brightness slider sets your accessory rear light’s brightness between 0 – 100%. The brake light brightness slider sets your accessory brake light’s brightness between 0 – 100%. If the accessory brake light is set to a type of flashing, this will determine the brightness of the flash.

Rear light vs brake light. The rear light is always on when the ignition is ON – but an accessory rear light can be turned off even when the ignition is ON. The bike’s brake light is only activated on active braking – but an accessory brake light can be set to activate on other types of trigger too, like harsh deceleration. Be aware that an overly bright rear light setting can make a brake light less visible – an effect that can partly be countered by flashing (See NOTE 1 at the end of this section).

Additional Options for Accessory Brake Lights:

On braking the accessory brake light comes on at preset brightness and does not flash (mimics the bike’s standard brake light)

 

Accessory brake light flashes to preset brightness under any active braking

When braking, the accessory brake light flashes 4 times at 4Hz to the preset brightness and then remains on for the duration of active braking. So once the brakes are applied, the auxiliary brake light will flash 4 times within a second, then remain on until the brake is released.  [See full legal requirement. 25251.5. (c)]

Accessory brake light flashes whenever deceleration above 21km/h/s (kilometres per hour per second) is detected, either from active braking or engine braking. (See NOTE 2 for more information)

The accessory brake light behaves as a combination of “California 4Hz legal flashing” as well as “Emergency stop signal”. This means that under normal braking it will flash 4 times at 4 Hz and then remain on. In addition, it will also flash whenever the deceleration is larger than the preset harsh deceleration value. Please see options (3.) and (4.) above.

Important Notes:

The bike’s brake light is always brighter than the rear light, but an accessory brake light can use the same LEDs for both rear and brake lights. It is important to remember that the brightness setting for the accessory rear light should be substantially less than the brightness setting of the accessory brake light to indicate braking

Emergency braking will only activate above 50km/h. If you decelerate harshly (over the 21km/h/s threshold) and keep brake applied, the light will flash and continue to flash until the brake is released. Braking hard for an evasive manoeuvre, to warn traffic behind you to be aware that you have suddenly decelerated harshly – the accessory brake light keeps flashing as long as the brake is applied, and will continue to flash when the bike has stopped. Flashing will stop when the brake is released.

STEP 6:

SETTING THE TIME-OUT OF THE
ACCESSORY/ IGNITION SUPPLY

To avoid power cuts to the accessories connected to this output during ignition cycles, use the slider to set the preferred time-out delay. 

The maximum timeout that can be selected is 30 seconds.
