Sorry. I don't understand your question. Could you re-word it please?

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

… and it’s the youngest I’m ever going to get.

So glad I finally have one of these! No more searching for 7th gear! Of all my years of riding I can't believe I finally grabbed one of these. Slacker... really easy plug and play

For me it was easy i have a Admore Wiring Harness that i took off my FJR cut the white ends off then used post-tap to connect to the V-1000 wires i needed. I wanted them on a switched line so i ran the power wire from the grips to the wiring harness thats connected to the Tail Light Wire. I also have my GPS wire connected there also. Then i attached the ground wire from the grips to a bolt next to the back brake fluid reservoir. The GPS & Heated Grips power wire is connected to the Blue/Red wire terminal.

Not sure what the color of the Tail Light wire is on your model. But if you want it switched connect the power wire from the grips to the tail light wire or any other switched wire. Then take the ground wire from the grips and use any bolt on the frame to use. If you don't want it switched just attach the Grip wires to the battery. Heres what i used to tap into the wires..https://www.amazon.com/Lockitt-POSI-...words=posi+tap

Thanks! I think what I'm going to do is just wire them straight to the battery. Normally I wouldn't take that chance because I can be forgetful but we're talking about a major source of heat on my hands with a well lit led and this "This system will detect if the battery voltage is too low and will automatically shut down the heated grips in order to make sure the rider have enough power to start the engine or use the motorcycle." I'm thinking I'll be all set and I can always rewire if it becomes an issue. Thoughts?

I would wire it so that they are OFF when the bike's OFF. DON'T forget that you HARM your battery whenever you run it to minimums, and it will only do that a finite number of times...!

Wow - serious comm support, nice!

A couple questions if I may:

1) what mounting system are you using up near the windshield - assuming home built, specifically how are you mounting it? I'm pondering fastening to the windshield mounting points, not sure if the vibration becomes an issue.

2) What are your thoughts on the SPOT, have you ever had to use it? Do you have issues with connectivity?

Much appreciated!
