GARMIN Zumo power routing. Heat?
I am mounting my Garmin to the handlebars, and I'm running the power down the electrical wires, through the middle of the bike, then along the right frame rail to the outside of the big wire bundle. I've zip-tied the wire to the bundle, and then run it straight to the battery.
I'm not thrilled with the routing, nor the straight batter hookup, but it works...at least when the bike is off. Do I need to worry about heat melting any wires?
As to the install, the only thing that went poorly was that one of the rubber grommits for the fairing (the one on the top that connects the top shelf with the top side fairing and the wide side fairing) was pushed through, and I can't find it on the bike anywhere. I'm sure this will add a nice rattle to the bike, and potentially some nice burning smell if I can't find it. I removed the whole thing again looking for it but it is literally just gone! I'll take some pics later today and show you what I'm talking about. In the meantime...is heat a concern?
