Beaming with farkle pride: today I successfully installed a fairing mounted Powerlet outlet, an accessory fuse block and a ground block.

I know it's not much for the lupine set on this site, but you have to appreciate how mechanically (and electrically) uninclined I am - this is a real breakthrough.

Now, under my seat looks like a snake pit orgy, with wires absolutely everywhere, but I will be sure to bring some connectors, a crimper and fresh zipties with me in case anyone in Vermont next weekend feels like tackling a little project as we unwind around the campfire.

Did I mention I might have left a $20 bill under my seat....? (And those are big, burly Canadian dollars, not sorry little beaten-down greenbacks.) :biggrinjester:

:hurray: Good for you. Be warned wiring is addictive. Keep it up and your bike will look like this even with a fuse block is in the fairing.

How many different adapters did you have to purchase, to feed the different, specific, electrical items that you would like to plug into that wonderful, off-sized, 12 volt outlet?

I ended up getting rid of mine because of that.

(I also have an Indiana Jones style "snake pit" of wires underneath my seat as well. I don't keep any money their either; neither "loonies", nor "toonies".)

Toonies would be the correct term.

They'd look at you funny, in Tim Hortons, if you tried to pay for your double-double with a twosie. :mrgreen:
Thank you. I will go back and edit my post.

I understand your pride!. I am the most electrically impaired human on the planet earth. I had some electrical shorts in my DL650 earlier this summer and I fixated on finding them myself. Unfortunately I am so impaired I had to get a manual on how to use a multi-meter and watch youtube videos. While I freely admit any competent Chimp could have found and fixed the shorts in a couple of hours ... it took me over 4 hours. And when I successfully finished I was disgustingly proud of myself my wife said I did a little jig in garage. I don't remember that part ... but it must have been truly an ugly sight to behold.:green_lol:

Congrats.

My buddy had a fault in his Widder controller, using mine as a 'known good one' I trouble promptly shorted mine to the same if not worse condition as his. We both go replacements.

Beware the hidden smoke in the wires......
