Latest mods: LED handguard signals and 12 volt and USB charger

Wired in some Custom Dynamics LED strips and mounted them on my Cycra handguards. I think they look and work pretty well. Give me added visibility and brightness when turning.


While I had the front fairing off I also fixed the dreaded instrument cluster squeek with some 2 sided tape. It's not pretty but did the trick:


BRIGHT! LED's just never look good in pictures though..




Now the charger, it is water tight and the caps seal VERY WELL! I hooked it to the loose plugs under the left side fairing in the front. And it is fused.


Almost plug and play But simple enough for me to wire up.


Nice and small. Works great; I used it to power an air compressor on a recent 725 mile trip I took (125 miles of that on dirt/gravel) And it charges my cell phone just fine too!


Not bad for $25 BUCKS compared to some of the other $$$ PRICEY chargers with just the 12 volt outlet;

That's all for now

Yes they are ONLY turn signals. I wired them into the signal plugs.
