BMW F800/850GS/GT
P3 Installation

It's easy to install P3 Lights on BMW's F800GS/GT. 850 models will be similar.


On 2013 and newer models there is a connector under the seat with the following wire colors & functions:

Brown - Ground, connect to the controller's black wire
Grey/Black - Tail/Brake Light, connect to the controller's white wire

Blue/Grey (Grey/Red & Yellow dots in 2019+)- License Plate Light, connect to the controller's red wire

Blue/Red - Left Turn Signal, connect to the controller's green wire (TS model only)
Blue/Black - Right Turn Signal, connect to the controller's yellow wire (TS model only)

On models prior to 2013, remove the seat, then with reference to the images below, remove the luggage rack and tail section cover:

Then, with reference to the image below, locate the tail light connector which is labelled (A) in the diagram below.

This connector contains two wires: brown and grey/black striped.

Using one of the included red/gray cylindrical Posi-Tap® connectors connect the controller's black wire to the brown wire going to this connector, and the controller's white wire to the grey/black striped wire. Connect these close to the tail light connector. There is no need to remove the black insulation tape.

Next, locate the cable going to license plate lamp which is labelled (B) in the diagram on the left.


This cable contains two wires, one brown, one striped.


Remove ~1" of the black insulation tape and connect the controller's red wire to the striped wire.

Finally, mount the two LED modules on the license plate frame as shown below, and run the wires up into the tail section. Connect them to the controller as described in the standard installation instructions.

You're done! Enjoy the lights!
