So since I finally had a couple of days off from work I decided to install the stuff I've had sitting around for a few weeks.

I wanted to add a cigarette lighter plug, Oxford heated grips, Denali D1 lights and an Easter Beaver PC-8 fuse block.

I started by tearing the bike apart. I took of the windscreen, the side fairings and the hand guards.



I wanted to run all of the wires for everything as close to the stock wiring as possible so I had to pull the gas tank as well. Its really easy to take off, two 10mm bolts, two vent lines and two electrical connectors.



I installed the PC-8 fuse block under the seat where the tool kit went (which got relocated to by the tail light). The fuse block came with a wire harness with an in-line 30 amp fuse, relay and all the hardware you need to hook it up including a posi-tap to tap into the tail light for the switched on power. There are 8 power outputs on the fuse block, 6 are switched with the ignition and 2 are constant on.





Tool kit relocated, you can also see the posi-taps where I tapped into the tail light for the switched power.



I ran the power wires up the left hand side of the gas tank following the original wire harness, used conduit so nothing would chafe.



I ran all of the wires up to the headlight housing, where I drilled a hole and installed the cigarette lighter. All of the wires for the heated grips, power plug and D1 lights are secured to the headlight support brackets.



After I got everything wired up I installed the hand grips which were easy. Just cut off the old grips, put some grip glue on and push the new ones on.



I mounted the controller for the heated grips on the top clamp, right next to my Ipod blue tooth remote.



I also got the SW-Motech light mounts from Twisted Throttle. They are solid and mount very well.







I mounted the switch for the D1 lights on the left handlebar.





Put the bike back together and fire it up...



These things are bright!

Some of the other things I've done since I bought the bike back in October are a Renthal 44 tooth rear sprocket, reflective rim tape, Barkbuster Storm guards with bar end weights, a Givi screen and Skeene P-3 tail lights.











Oh yeah, I painted some plastics black...looks way better.
