Yes, its 2014
and we are still going strong.... http://www.adventuretech.biz/
There is of course plenty of room for switches, lights, and other gizmos on the black horizontal part of the V-Strom fairing. However, I wasn't comfortable with the idea of reaching under the handlebars while riding to flip a grip heater switch or running power cables under the handlebars. It just didn't seem safe to me as I turned my handlebars back and forth and made motorcycle noises in the garage. It occurred to me that it was much easier to reach between the handlebars than to reach under them. After two years of use I am very happy with my little shelf. Hundreds of happy owners have indicated they like it too.
The shelves are made on a CNC mill from 0.125" 6063-T6 aluminum. Pricing varies depending on color and complexity, but they start at $50 for a simple two hole aluminum shelf. http://www.adventuretech.biz/
The face (surface that is visible after mounting) has a brushed finish. For an additional $5 I can powdercoat the shelf matte black
(matching the black hardware on the handlebars).
Mine (top above) supports a powerlet, a grip heater switch, and a LED Battery Gauge with Remote Flush Panel Mount LED
the DL650 shelf mounts using the two existing cable guide bolts. Some adjustment to the cable guides may be necessary on th eVee and Wee depending on what you install. There is no problem with cable clearance on either side. The shelf for the 2012 DL650 replaces the stock cable guides. The 2012 DL650 shelf can accomosate a volt meter center, two sockets, and at least two switches, maybe more depending on hardware.
I will include TWO ROUND HOLES (one on each side) to fit your needs at NO Charge, or ship it with no holes at all. For rectanguler meter holes (e.g., Datel volt meter) add $5.00.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SWITCHES AND METERS :neutral:
Please plan for round switches. Switches with cut out sizes larger than 13/16” (0.8125”) and 0.795” diameter are almost never really needed. Four switches of this size can easily fit on the shelf two per side, or a socket on one side and two switches on the other. We can make a hole for your switch or you can use one of ours http://www.adventuretech.biz/electri...main-page.html
I have programs for both the rectangular [1.336 (33.93)W × 0.838 (21.29)H] and new round Datel voltmeters. We can do others (e.g., 42 x 24 mm meter cut-out)if you provide the dimensions. It is very easy to buy a volt meter that is unnecessarily too big and will not fit. We also have experience with a lot of meters, so before you buy that cheap Chinese Ebay meter ask first (and then don't buy it).
See below for DL1000 pic.
The DL1000 shelf mounts on the right cable guide and upper left tripple clamp bolt.
A powerlet uses an 18 mm hole, the heated grip black rocker style switch with the Symtec grip heaters takes a 13/16", standard ciggar lighters (e.g., Casa 12 VDC panel mount, Marinco marine 12V sockets) tand those we sell use a standard 1.125" hole. http://www.adventuretech.biz/electri...main-page.html
I will endevour to catalog them as best I can, but if you want anything other than the above please state the hole size in inches or mm to avoid a shipping delay.
