I've been slowly tweaking my bar and dash area with farkles, and almost got it to the point where I'm happy with them. Just thought I'd share!
From left to right:
Pazzo knockoff CNC adjustable levers
- regular for the clutch and shorty for the brake. I broke both OEM ones dropping the bike, and so far these replacements are fantastic - much nicer than the originals. They're the same Chinese ones that Greywolf had on his old bike.
ContourROAM video camera
- mounted on a RAM arm and a mount that I fabricated by replacing the stock M6 fairing bolt with a longer custom version that screws into a female RAM ball. This is the "default" position for my camera, because I can turn it on and off easily with my left hand.
Garmin Zumo 660
- navigation and music that feeds Bluetooth stereo audio to the Interphone F4 mounted on my helmet. The cradle is attached to the bars with a standard RAM mount and U-bolt.
Wolfman Explorer Lite tankbag with a Camelbak Antidote 50oz reservoir
- I found a $5 magnetic mount from another brand with one side that snaps onto the hose and another piece that clips onto a flat surface. When I'm done drinking, I just put the hose back down, and it locks into place like that.
Beltronics RX65 radar detector
- mounted on a RAM Powerplate magnetic quick release. I glued a dummy RJ45 jack underneath the plate so when I'm not using the radar, I plug the power cord into it to keep it dry and protected. I also built a homebrew visual alert with a high power LED that plugs into the headphone jack and flashes brightly enough to get my attention even when I'm focused on the road.
Oxford heated grips customized with a Symtec bar mount controller
- that's the switch mounted on the brake perch next to the starter. It cycles through five temperatures and progressively lights up an LED scale as it gets warmer.
So far, it's working out nicely. Only thing missing is the Barkbuster VPS
guards that I ordered two months ago to protect all this (the white plastics have been backordered for awhile).
Took her out on a nice 550 mile ride yesterday and enjoyed all of the farkles very much.... :mrgreen:
