I don't think there's a thread like this on here yet, so I figured I'd make one. What'd you do to your Hyperstrada today? Pictures are always nice!

I'll start...

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!

Wow, sticking a bare wire end under a fuse blade...:(

That is not a reliable connection. Find a soldering iron and some heat shrink! The service manual has a useful set of harness routing pics, and the wiring diagram is in the back of your owner's manual. Or connect directly to the battery, with an appropriate fuse..

This is the sort of thing that often results in some sort of failure, and the owner usually blames the manufacturer.

I was an M.E. in my past life....dealt with many fires and accidents from poor design and/or execution.

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:eek: 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.

I got my touring screen mounted today. Due to winter time I'm not able to test this untill next spring.
Hopefully the pump protector will arrive this week from S.Korea.

Regard.

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.

I'm curious on how will look the bike with this top case. Could you show us some photos?

Where? Can you please post a picture of where this is? Would be much appreciated! Where is the main wire harness?

I don't see why how I've done it isn't good, but if Ducati designed a slot specifically for a GPS into the bike, please help me locate it and I'll rewire the power cable there.

Thanks!

There is a list with all the Ducati ISTR's in them ( instructions ).
If you take the one with the ducati garmin nhy installation, you get the right wire and connector.
There are probably 2 other connectors for the heated grips.

If you look at the thread GPS / Satnav wiring you will find a link to the ISTR 505.
The heated grips ISTR is 513.

Regards.
