There is a dedicated switched power feed for a gps (accessories) behind the headlamp. In the main wire harness!!!Today I installed a Garmin Zumo 390 GPS with TPMS. I also installed a brake light modulator (SupaBrake-II motorcycle tail light modulators | vizi-tec) -- was plug and play and took 2 minutes to install and I think it's a fantastic safety feature that really gets motorists attention when you brake. I also had a Shorai 18A lithium battery installed today... only weighs 2 lbs and I never have to worry about putting it on a battery tender!
I forgot to take pictures of the GPS installed on the bars (doh!), but here's some pictures of the installation.
Wired it into the Key 2 fuse for switched power. Initially, I tried wiring it into Fuse 1 (headlights), but discovered that fuse must have a bad ground because when I grounded the GPS to the bike's frame, the ground screw started lightly sparking. Baffled, I touched a multimeter to it and the GROUND was putting out 6 volts. Switched my GPS power into Fuse 4 and problem solved.
Closed the fuse box up and cable tied everything neatly.
Where I attached the ground wire.
Tomorrow, going to install a 14T front sprocket!
I'm curious on how will look the bike with this top case. Could you show us some photos?Today I ordered the DP top case rods as I am going to use this knock off pelican case as my new top case.
Anyone in Canada can buy this from princess auto (harbour freight ish to most of you) it would cost $44 but I found it in the wrong bin for $12 I compared it side by side with the pelican iM 2100 I think, and you can tell they were made in the same place by the same robots.
Where? Can you please post a picture of where this is? Would be much appreciated! Where is the main wire harness?There is a dedicated switched power feed for a gps (accessories) behind the headlamp. In the main wire harness!!!
That's very dodgy (cowboy) what you have done.
