Audiovox Cruise Installed

Thanks to all of you who did the foot work and posted your installs on this unit it made it easy for me. It works great and I am looking forward to many many miles of cramp free rides.

Keep the Rubber Side Down.

It's great isn't it. Where did you put the servo and reservoir (also what kind) and how did you connect the cable to the throttle linkage?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

It is the Audiovox CCS, the bike is a California Model Vee so both sides of the bike were quite full so I put the servo behind the tool kit and was able to mount the vacuum canister under the LH side cover. The vacuum canister is Napa part #730-1607 that someone else referred to in one of your links. I think I will build my own before too long and replace that. I did mount the cable to the support for the fuel tank and just put the loop over the rear throttle body control. I did not have enough cable to come from the front with the servo all the way to the rear. I put some shrink wrap on the cable and beads to keep it from rubbing the paint off of the tank. But thanks to you greywolf and all of your links it made the whole thing quite easy. I think this may be the best $130 that I have spent on this bike.

My bike has a charcoal canister too. I just barely got the servo under the left side cover. It's the biggest bang for the buck of all the accessories I have.

I am sure that I am going to agree with you there. Now my wife is giving it the eye and I am sure I will be installing one in hers soon. Hers will be an easier install with out the charcoal canister involved.

Two weeks ago I pulled the charcoal cannister because it was causing me issues starting the bike after sitting in the sun for a couple hours. (No more problems starting now...)

Imagine my pleasant surprise this evening when I started to install my Audiovox and found that the now plugged hose from the charcoal cannister is already T'd into both intake manifolds and an adapter in the kit fit perfectly between this hose and the hose that came with the cruise.

My local Napa had to order the reservoir, so I won't get it until Tuesday, but plan on putting it behind the tool kit. In the mean time I'm waiting on my PC-8 and wiring stuff from Jim at Eastern Beaver and a Nautilus Compact from Murph.

This was my first time pulling all the plastic on my Strom and I don't want to put back together again until I get everything installed - Audiovox, PC-8, & the Nautilus. It's killing me to have the girl down for a week though...

In any case, my sincerest thanks to Greywolf and VStromper for all the posts & pics that are making the install go so smoothly.

I don't know if the canister contributes to hard hot starts. It's only happened a couple of times to me and opening the throttle to defeat the starting fuel mix circuit worked like a charm.

I had consistent issues starting if I just hit the button after sitting in the sun. I could blip the throttle and she'd fire right up, baby a little at first like my old KZ to keep her going for the first 10-15 seconds and all was well.

Now she starts immediately all the time and I have space & vacuum lines for the cruise unit.

But your tank is vented to the atmosphere. There comes a point where we need to stop doing things like that unnecessarily. It looks like we may be past that point.

I guess Al Gore would agree with you.
