I've got mine hooked up directly to the battery for now so that it stays on when I turn the bike off. It's quick and easy to do that. I've picked up a fuzeblock though, and once I get around to installing it, I'll probably hook the Zumo 660 up to it, still always-on. You might want to consider hooking up to the battery just to see how you like it, and if you decide to go to a 'switched' setup, it'll be an easy change to make.
:thanx: :thumb: Thanks guys, When i woke up this morning the thought of splicing into the cigarette plug came to me.Glad to see someone has tried it without any problems and its a heck of alot easier too.
I started with m GPS tied to the license-plate light. Then it powered on/off with the key. Then I added an auxiliary light. The later I wanted to add other lights and realized I should have added a relay at the beginning. So, I added the Fuzeblock, FZ-1, and now use that to add my other ideas that need power. I did make one change: I trigger the Fuzeblock with the low-beam light power. So, my auxiliary power comes on when the engine starts, avoiding extra power demand when starting.
My lesson: Try to plan out your power needs before you start adding things one at a time.
I thought i had it planned out by adding the cigarette power outlet. Just to plug the gps into that but with the garmin mount you have to use the power cord. The car mount can be used with the cigarette plug end. I'm done adding anything else that draws power.Only thing left is a seat and maybe crash bars. Thanks for the advice on the Fuzeblock if i keep finding things to add to the V i'll get one
Got an appointment at the dealership to get it squared away tomorrow. They have a great service department and treat you very fair in the actual hours worked. They put my 16t front sprocket on yesterday for $40.00. I'll put huggers and luggage racks on my bike but when it come to anything electrical or mechanical trust me it cheaper to have it done.
my versys is paid off, i have an fj-09 as my main road bike right now and im currently doing nothing with my versys. im thinking it would make a good candidate to convert to an offroad beast! my question, is what do i need to do to get a 21" tire on the front, and what shock will bolt on to the...
Anyone know how to disconnect this plug from the stator? I can just barely reach it with my fingers and can probably get it loose, if I knew what the process was for releasing it. Seems simple enough, but when you can't really see it, not so easy. I've attached a picture.
I'm thinking my...
I have a 2015 3rd Gen Versys 650
I have been researching and it says I must use a 2015 or newer Rear rim.
Does anyone know the reason that a 2010 Rim Technically wont work on a 2015?
I have an opportunity to purchase a 2010 rim with a nice meaty tire on it.

I have a 2008 versys 650 and I bought a Sargent seat. I tried to put it on and it seems to snap into place but if I lightly lift up on the back of the seat it just pops right up. Is this normal? I have a tail bag that has a strap that goes under the seat and if this seat doesn't lock then my bag...
