Harness the flexibility and intelligence of your BMW motorcycle's CAN bus electrical system to make installation of accessories drastically easier with the new and improved DENALI CANsmart™ Controller GEN II.

The DENALI CANsmart™ Controller provides plug-n-play installation and integrated control of up to four accessories to enable dozens of customizable settings that can be controlled right from the BMW "WonderWheel" or the CANsmart™ Accessory Manager Software. 

The CANsmart's four circuits are preprogrammed to connect and independently control two sets of DENALI lights, a SoundBomb horn, and our B6 auxiliary brake light.  

Gen II - More Features, More Power, More Versatile

Unlike the Gen I CANsmart, all four circuits of the Gen II can provide a full 10 amps of continuous power and each circuit can be configured to run any accessory type. The maximum power draw for the whole unit remains at 30 amps continuous. The Gen II also features two new auxiliary light settings. You can now modulate your auxiliary lights for added conspicuity, and set your left and right side lights to independently cancel when you activate your corresponding turn signal.   


  • High/Low Sync - Set auxiliary lights to switch between a programmable high/low setting with the factory high beam switch.

  • ON/OFF and Dim - Independently control two sets of lights ON/OFF and change intensity level (for both day and night) right from your original vehicle switches.

  • Modulate Lights - Set auxiliary lights to modulate to increase your visibility to other motorists.

  • Flash to Pass - Need to get someone's attention? Pulse your high beam switch three times and your auxiliary lights will strobe three times fast.

  • Cancel With Turn Signal - This feature cancels the corresponding auxiliary light when you turn your turn signal on preventing powerful auxiliary lights from overpowering your signal.

  • Inverse Flashing With Hazards - This features flashes your auxiliary lights inversely to your hazard lights, increasing visibility during road side emergency's. 

  • Plug & Play Horn Installation - Quickly and easily connect high power aftermarket horns like our SoundBomb™ without having to add an additional harness or relay.

  • Strobe with Horn - With this feature selected the CANsmart™ software will automatically strobe your auxiliary lights when you sound your horn. This feature works whether you have the factory horn or SoundBomb™ horn installed.

  • Deceleration Activated "Smart Brake" Technology - The CANsmart™ reads vehicle speed in real time to activate your auxiliary brake light during deceleration before you even touch the brake. You can adjust the sensitivity and minimum speed at which the Smart Brake Feature will activate.

  • Flash Pattern Braking - The CANsmart™ provides four different flash patterns that make our super bright auxiliary brake lights even noticeable to motorists behind you. You can set auxiliary brake lights to only flash under hard braking, flash continuously as your brake is applied or flash four times rapidly then hold steady (California legal flash rate).

  • Circuit Function Selector - The Circuit Function Selector in the CANsmart software will let you run any accessory of your choice on any of the four circuits. Click on a circuit icon to open the drop down menu and make your selection from the list of available circuit functions.

  • Switched Power Source - The CANsmart™ provides a universal "accessory" option which simply gives you clean switched 12V power. That means whatever accessory you connect to this circuit will turn on and off with your ignition.

  • Delay Time Out - You can also set the accessories on this circuit to have a delayed time out. This will keep them powered for up to 30 seconds after your turn off your bike.

  • On Board Power - The "accessory" circuit option is ideal for powering your GPS, phone, heated gear or any other electronic device.

    CanSmart Easy

    My lighting package arrived quickly and complete. Installation was straightforward and the system worked the first time I switched it on. With the extra leads I have options to expand in future.

    Easy installation; great functionality

    This is one electronic component that truly is plug and play. Accessing the port to plug it into on my R1200RS was a little tricky, as it was located under the seat mount, but with a pair of needle nosed pliers, I was able to do it. It was simple to thread the connection to the battery. I had saved a B6 brake light from a previous bike. I formerly had to tap into the brake lights to get the light to work in conjunction with the bike's brake light. By simply plugging into the correct connection on the Cansmart controller, the B6 now flashes on deceleration with or without the bike's braking system. I'm not happy with the high beams on the bike, so I plan to add additional lighting, which is now simple. Compared to any other wiring I've done on a bike, this was by far the simplest. To program the Cansmart, you need to download software from the Denali website to your computer before you plug it into the Cansmart. Overall, an excellent product that's easy to install and adds great value to the bike.
