WalzWerks Bobber Kit, finally

Looking at the electrical error code that you are getting; I'm guessing you replaced the stock tail light and directionals? If so, can you measure the resistance of the stock lights with an Ohm meter; compare the stock resistance with the resistance of the lights provided as part of the kit?

The ECU is probably measuring current draw (Amps) in order to determine if a bulb has failed; this is pretty common when upgrading from incandescent bulbs to LED type bulbs. LED draw much less current, than a traditional incandescent bulb; where the computer thinks it's an OPEN circuit or a blow out bulb.
Thanks, Scott, that makes sense. My Walzwerk kit came with a resistor that I never bothered to connect. I guess this is why I have the error message. I will connect it and see if it gets rid of the message. ;-)

That's probably it... It will most likely match the expected resistive load that the ECU is looking for, based on the resistance of the stock tail lights.

Can you tell what the value of that resistor is? ... I am looking at converting my front turn signals to Kellerman lights and am running into a similar issue.

If you don't have a Volt Ohm Multi Meter, the resistor might have the value stamped on it, or perhaps colored bands which can be used to convert the resistive value. If so, post a picture of the resistor.
 
Now now, different strokes, eye of the beholder, etc.

Anyhow, License plate installation option. I jacked up the frame until the rear wheel was off the ground to confirm that the muffler and plate didn't collide.There's about a quarter inch. I would've preferred it oriented vertically but it's just too close.

About to order my bobber kit from Walzwerk. Can you please confirm if the licence plate kit is from them also. It looks different than yours. If it's not where did you get it? I love it. More pics and/or vid on install to have it sit so tight would be much appreciated! thank you!
 
if you look at this bike that wunderlich did they say they just added a 200 /60 / 16 tire to the bobber kit they sell so I should be able to add that tire to my stock rim and get the waltz works kit I would think with out the rim upgrade

Did you ever mount the 200/60/16 on your stock rim? Did you confirm that the stock 16” rim is 5.5” width? Does it look wider than the 180? The BMW motorcycle dealer in Charleston, SC, said that I wouldn’t benefit with stock rim because the narrow rim will pull the sidewalls in. Your thoughts please🙏
