Quick Start Guide

For the BMW R 1200 LC and K1600

Install the software

Download and install the HEX ezCAN configuration software from the Software page.

Install the ezCAN under the seat

Open the compartment under the pillion seat and unplug the CAN-Bus from the RDC control unit, if your bike has an RDC control unit fitted, to make it easier to route the battery cable. You can secure the ezCAN with the Velcro strips provided after the accessories have been plugged in.

Route and connect the battery wires

Watch the installation video to see the easiest way to do this.

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. For ease of installation, it is recommended that you connect the ezCAN's positive wire to the jumpstart terminal, but you can also connect it to the battery positive terminal.

Plug the ezCAN into CAN-Bus

Bike with RDC control unit

  1. Start by unplugging the CAN-Bus from the RDC control unit if it is not yet unplugged.
  2. Plug the HEX ezCAN into the CAN-Bus - inline.
  3. The HEX ezCAN has two CAN-Bus connectors. Plug one end of the HEX ezCAN into the CAN-Bus, plug the other end of the HEX ezCAN into the RDC control unit.

Bike without RDC control unit

  1. Start by unplugging the cap from the RDC - CAN-Bus connector.
  2. Plug the HEX ezCAN into the CAN-Bus - inline.
  3. The HEX ezCAN has two CAN-Bus connectors. Plug one end of the HEX ezCAN into the CAN-Bus. Replace the cap on the other end of the HEX ezCAN connection.

That's how easy it is!

Connect accessories using colour-coding

Connecting your accessories is as simple as plugging them in.

Blank plugs are provided to protect unused HEX ezCAN outputs against dirt and moisture. There are four connectors with stub wires to make your accessories compatible with these output plugs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The colour-coding on the output wires must match the colours in the output configuration you select from the HEX ezCAN channel mapping software. Red to red, orange to orange, etc. (Black wire is Battery Negative and the Red, Orange,
Yellow and White are the Positive Supply.)

Note the different colored wires below the output plugs

Choose the configuration of accessories that you would like to install.

Configure via USB

Our SOFTWARE page sets out the process of configuring the installation with the HEX ezCAN configuration software.

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.
