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.
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 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.
I have been lost for the last time! ...so really need to come up with a good GPS tool to use. I have used Garmin's in the past and they seem useless to me. I can't see the screen. My eyes are not the best in my senior years but I don't think anyone could see them in the bright sunlight. What...
No affiliation. Looks clean and sleek...…..probably best for paved roads, not sure about single track, potholed, or really gnarly roads?? PRICE: $85

Girlfriend and I have been riding more and more. We need a way to talk on the go. Also she wants a way to listen to music. That isn't as important for me - but wouldn't hurt on longer trips.
Obviously, this means some sort of in-helmet headset.
Do any of the cheap Chinesium ones (Fodsports...
Well guys, Christmas is approaching, and my significant other wants a backup camera for her 2010 Honda CR-V. She already has a Sony XAV-AX1000 head unit, so I need something compatible with that. I'm not a tech guy, but I know a lot of members here are and could probably offer some insight...
As a privacy concern I'm contemplating using a VPN in the future. I know some of you guys are really into stuff like this, so I thought I'd seek out some info on here before relying on my own research. Can any of you recommend a reliable VPN service?
