Wess,    I've had the Audiovox for about 10 years now. Good unit.    There is another one the C-14 guys are using call Rostra. It does not need a vacuum source to control the speed, but I'm not sure the C-10 can electrically provide the info it needs. Perhaps someone else can shed some light on the Rostra for the C-10.  Larry Buck  COG 3451,SE-AD (Retired)Concourier C-10 Tech Editor ROK,MTF,IBA,MSF-RC  Buck Sport Touring-"Ride Far" www.bucksporttouring.com

the Rostra is not suited for the C10 as it relies on electronic pulse from the speedo sending unit to maintain set speed.  The Audivox is the best route on the C10, as old Conni is an analog speedo drive, and you are just using a basic engine RPM control to set rolling speed.(sensed from engine coil).

apparently murphs is not able to get any audio vox from the supplier even since July.  I checked the audio site and the crusie control isn't on it.  Now, as to my need regarding audio vox.    I need two lengths of beaded chain and one bead chain coupler.      Help??    Anyone??    Bob

Regarding availability of the CCS-100 kit.....    I did a Google search and found a seller on Amazon.com with a couple of the kits in stock. I bought the last one he had, and am looking forward to a few rainy days when I can make some time to install it.     What have those of you who have the CCS-100 done for a vac tank? I hate to spend $30 or $40 for such a small simple item. I'm thinking a short length of plastic pipe capped, and tapped for 2 vac fittings?    TIA for any ideas    Doug

That's exactly what I did. A 1" dia (?) by 8" long pvc pipe capped.     I'm not sure if it was necessary for my bike, but prior to putting the canister on, I was tapping vacumn from cyl 1, 3 and 4. I left #2 dedicated to the petcock. Before and after canister performance was the same for my bike on hills and overpasses.   Do you have the vacumn check valve, that is another necessity.    I've installed quite a few of these, if you need anymore help, shout away.

I have a couple of part number suggestions: Universal Vacumn Check Valve:  NAPA part # 730-1347 - the last one I got from NAPA was a carded item hanging on the wall on the sales floor.    Other Auto stores (Advance, Autozone) that have the HELP! line of products, it's the aisle where you find the replacement window cranks, bleed valves, trim fasteners and other assorted stuff, that part number is 47149.    Now on one of these check valves one nipple is a smaller diameter than the vacumn hose. I used some heat shrink to build up the nibble to a larger diameter so the hose would stay on.   Did you build a vacumn canister already? How did that go?

Good info as I'm on the phone with my Napa guy several times a day, so the Napa number will work perfect. No, I haven't built the vac tank yet. Did you use plastic or brass nipples on the tank?    Thanks,  Doug

Cool deal, just make sure they don't think you are talking of a check valve for a brake booster, little too big  :)    For the nipples, I actually had a small piece of copper tubing the right diameter. Don't have a clue where I got it from though. Might have been scrap left over from running an aftermarket oil pressure gauge in a car years ago?  Drilled the hole so the tube pressed fit in, then used some two part epoxy to seal.

I used a blister pack replacement vacuum check valve for a car power brake booster from an auto parts store, unfortunately the hose ports are very large.    Maybe one of these?  http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/product.asp?catalog_name=USPlastic&category_name=45&product_id=20411

McMaster-Carr also has a selection of check valves - including small in-line versions.    I was going to build my own vacuum tank too, but by the time I added up all the parts, and made the trips (or paid the shipping), it was cheaper to buy the Audiovox tank from Murph!

If you have tip over bars on the bike you can use one of those for a vacuum canister.  I did this on my V-Strom.     If room on the bike was a question and I had the handlebar mod on the C10 I might even use the handlebars as a vacuum canister. Plug the ends far enough to get the bar end weights back in, plug some holes  and a couple of nipples and you're set..  Clean look?  I don't know but I definitely would consider it.

My understanding is rosetta or whatever needs a signal that the C10 can not supply to work.  Photos[/url]
