Default Cruise Control on V Strom......Pictures

AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS!

Being completely spoiled by the cruise control on My BMW K1200RS, I just had to have it on the DL650 V Strom (WeeStrom). After a couple of 12 hour+ days last week, riding back from Missouri, it was even more apparent what a great feature this is.

Believe it or not, it is really quite simple. Took me three hours. The most difficult part is locating you Tachometer Drive and Vehicle Speed Sensor wires on the motorcycle. These can be found in the electric schematic found in a good service manual. Other than that, a little mechanical know how to attach the throttle linkage and few spliced wires and you be cruising!

I had seen such a mod on the FJ list and wondered about it on the Strom. Can you send the word doc to jirvine@nmsu.edu. Still working good? What unit and where did you get it?
Thanks

Do a search for Rostra.
Pretty much the same install but no vacuum cannister needed.

I installed the Rostra CC on my wee last summer. It has been one of the better farkles that I've installed. I do a lot of highway driving & it's great to be able to take my right hand off the bars.

Two questions on the Rostra CC if anyone knows.

How water proof is the handle bar controller?

How many watts does the Non vacuum canister system pull?

Thanks for any assistance.

The handlebar controller needs to be waterproofed by the user. Just use a silicone seal, preferably without acetic acid for curing to avoid circuit board damage, and it is totally waterproof. Liquid vinyl electrical "tape" is another possibility. The unit uses a 10A fuse for the motor.

after 5 years this thread gets dug up. WOW!! gotta be some kind of record. but i do have a question. how'd you mount the pelican to your handlebar? and did you repair or replace you Wee after the crash. a link to your thread about it would suffice.

Used goop on the back of the controller and have not had any problems. Can't answer the the other one.
