Step 1: Parts List & Bike Preparation

Installation Tips:

 

There are two main parts to the installation of your new 

Clearwater Lights. The mechanical portion, and the electrical portion. 
With this manual, we will go over the basics of both which should allow 
you to get your lights up and running. If you purchased a bracket made 
specifically for your bike, refer to our manuals online for that specific 
installation at: 

www.clearwaterlights.com

Note:

 

Motorcycle needs to be turned on before the lights will function.

Bike Preparation:

•  First, park the motorcycle on hard pavement or concrete to insure the 
bike will be stable during the installation. If you can mount the bike on a 
stand with tie-down straps, this will help secure the motorcycle.

•  Follow the manufacturers guidelines for disconnecting the battery. This 
is important to prevent damage to the electrical system.

Erica / Krista / Sevina Technical:

 

Erica / Krista / Sevina are very bright LED auxiliary lights. Do not 

use these with oncoming traffic present unless the dimmer is turned 
down all the way. Krista / Erica / Sevina are designed as off road only 
light’s due to the powerful light output and specific beam pattern they 
boast. The wide circular pattern is very useful on mountain roads when 
on a motorcycle, as it keeps light on the road and in the tree canopy. As 
the bike leans, lights are still focused on the road. Be certain to use the 
lights in a manner that does not blind oncoming traffic.

 

Erica / Krista / Sevina can also be used in a “low” beam mode 

and a “high” beam mode. The factory handlebar high beam switch is 
used to select the two different Erica / Krista / Sevina modes. 

 

Krista light output is about 2400 lumens each light while only 

using 35 watts of power. Erica light output is about 6000 lumens each 
light while using about 60 watts of power. Sevina commands about 7000 
lumens each light using about 70 watts of power. Erica / Krista / Sevina 
are easy to install and have many, many uses.

Step 2: Mounting The Lights / Crash Bar Mount

Mounting The Lights: (Crash Bar)

 

Mounting the Lights to the Crash Bar is very simple. Pre-

assemble the lights, and mounting bracket loosely with the supplied 
parts. Locate where you would like the light to be pointing and the 
orientation of either on top or hanging below the bar. Snug the bolts on 
the clamp so you can now adjust the alignment of your lights. 

 

When using the M10 single mount, you can adjust the light left 

and right allowing a wider range of motion and sight. Use the M6 double 
clamp mount when wanting a more rigid and straight aimed light set up.

Step 2: Mounting The Lights / Fender Mount 

Mounting The Lights: (Fender Mount) -OPTIONAL

 

Clearwater Lights comes with an assortment of stainless steel 

bolts that can allow a variety of installations. Pre-assemble the lights, 
mounting bracket, shoulder washers and spacers with new bolts.
Gently screw all bolts in hand tight. Inspect the bolt length and spacer 
alignment before tightening the bolts.

 

This location is only for Glenda and Darla lights.

The  headlight  assembly  is  also  held  down  by  the  bolts  shown 
above in (Fig. D).  Remove the top torx bolt (shown above on the 
left, but also on the right), the lower torx bolt, and the headlight 
adjuster knob.  

With the appropriate headlight bolts removed, Carefully pull the 
headlight  assembly  out,  exposing  the  cavity  underneath  (Fig.

Step 4: Wiring

Wiring:

• We highly recommend you take a minute to review the wiring diagram 
below before starting the wiring portion of the installation. Once you 
feel comfortable with the information below you are ready to begin the 
electrical portion of the installation. Be sure to keep this diagram handy 
to reference throughout the installation.

Step 4: Wiring

Wire Routing: 

(Please consult owners manual for  wiring diagram and color codes)

•  Be sure to route wires so that they cannot become tangled or caught 
in either a suspension part or steering part. Check movement of both 
steering and suspension before riding the bike.

•  It is sometimes helpful to follow existing wire routing.

Page 11

Mounting The Control Knob: (Bar Mount)

•  Mount the Volume Control Knob to handlebar by using supplied 
bracket and bolt to the existing controls.

•  Route wires from lights and volume control knob bracket to area 
under left side of forks. Connections can be made here and be kept 
weatherproof.

Hint for High Vibration installations:

 To keep the Volume Control Knob from 

rotating itself under high vibration, put a dab of silicone adhesive under the knob 
and let it dry. Then push the rubber knob back on. The friction of the glue under 
the knob will keep it in place.

The connector that connects 
the harness to the lights may 
need to be zip tied in a location 
where it won’t potentially rub on 
the fork. 

If no location is available to get 
the wires out of the way it is 
possible to stick a small plate 
under the beak so that you 
have a location to fasten the 
wires to (shown in the photo to 
the right).

Step 4: Wiring (1290 Super Adventure R, 2017+)

Locate  the  connector  that  was  plugged  into  the  headlight 
assembly (Shown above in Fig. F). Connect the included jumper 
plug  to  the  male  and  female  ends  of  the  headlight  connector 
on the bike. Connect the red and white wires coming out of the 
jumper plug to the wiring harness with Posi-locks as seen on pg. 
10. 

Affix  the  relay  harness  box  to  a  solid  object  somewhere  in  the 
headlight cavity using Zip Ties. (Fig. G) shows a possible location.

Step 4: Wiring

Electrical:

•  Run the Red and Black power wires directly to the battery. The fuse will 
protect the system in the event of a short.

•  Mount the power relay box in a safe location (see photo below for one 
recommended location). Secure with a zip tie. It is a good idea to face 
the relay box with the wires coming out of the bottom. This helps keep 
everything dry.

•  Route the two Black connectors for the lights to a convenient location 
where they will not interfere with steering or any other moving parts.

•  Install the switch in a convenient location. Refer to the sticker on the 
switch for proper placement.

•  Switch - Crimp spade lugs to red, yellow, and black wires from relay box. 
Attach to corresponding tabs on switch. (See wiring diagram)

•  Using Posi-tap, attach red (turn on wire) to a switched 12v wire. Be sure 
not to use a Low beam headlight wire on H4 headlight bikes or else the 
lights will shut off when the high beam is activated.

•  Install connectors as shown in the wiring diagram on page 7.

High Beam Feature:

 

Locate your bike’s High Beam headlight hot (+) lead. This will 

make your lights go to full power when you turn on your high beam. Use 
a Posi-tap to connect one of the white wires from the relay box to this 
wire. It does not matter which white wire you use; both trigger the same 
way. If you do not want to use this feature, simply tuck the white wire 
away in a neat fashion.

Horn Feature:

 

Locate the Horn’s hot (+) lead. This will make your lights flash 

to full when you sound your horn. Use a Posi-tap to connect one of the 
white wires from the relay box to this wire. It does not matter which white 
wire you use; both trigger the same way. If you do not want to use this 
feature, simply tuck the white wire away in a neat fashion.

Step 5: Alignment / Drip Loop Instructions

Aligning The Lights:

 

As Erica, Krista, and Sevina are designed as auxiliary lights, 

adjustment is up to the user depending on his needs. Ask an assistant 
to help you with this procedure. Make sure the bike is on level ground 
and have an assistant sit on the bike. With a right angle board or object, 
position the board on the floor and slide it up to the light. The goal is to 
adjust the lights so that the light is level with the ground. 

 

Passengers and luggage may alter the alignment of the light, so 

further adjustments may be needed. You may find that a slight downward 
angle (5 degrees) is helpful. Often times it is helpful to angle the right 
side light toward the right side of the road. This helps with identifying 
road terrain and potential critters.

No Drip Loop

With Drip Loop

Using a Drip Loop

 

Though our lights are sealed for ultimate all weather use, 

sometimes water sneaks by. To make sure this doesn’t happen, we 
highly suggest using a drip loop. When installing the wiring to your lights, 
use a drip loop as shown below. This will keep water from dripping 
directly into the light and instead fall off before it can reach the back of 
the body. 
 

To do this just leave a bit of extra wiring and let it hang below the 

light. You could make a complete loop if you like, but just make sure the 
wire hangs below the light as shown below.
