Gerbing wiring route?
« on: May 10, 2009, 04:26:00 pm »
Picked up my shiny new C14 yesterday and promptly went for a   650km jaunt to test her out. Also to rack up some break-in distance.     It got a little chilly on the way home at 10:30 at night, so today I'm   doing some farkling (trunk, throttlemeister).     Can anyone recommend a good wiring route for my Gerbing cable?  I   also use it to plug in my battery tender so it has to go right to the   battery.   That huge, odd shaped fuel tank, and the strange placement   of the battery have me looking for suggestions.     Anyone?  Bueller?  Anyone?      06 Concours  Vancouver, BC

I used the poor excuse for a glove box for an aux power distribution   "power plate" all the farkles up front go to there it has a separate port   which is hot when the bike is off i use for the charger. I mounted one port   for Mama on the side panel with the seat lock and mine on the left black   panel.I routed a lot of the power for the plate and com cables thru the   right side right by the battery and up into the seat.But any aux fuse block   up front will save a lot of hassle.  bob

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I ran mine up under the gas tank. What I did is remove the tank to install an auxiliary fuse block under the seat. So while I had the tank out. I ran the Gerbings cable (using an extension cable) from the battery, up under the gas tank. I then brought it up the handle bar. It just sits under my left side control housing. Right next to my McCruise controller. It works great. I use my tank bag when it's cold. I clip my Gerbings duel controller on the tank bag. It plugs right into the jack on the handle bar. If I get off the bike and walk away. I just unplug the controller from the jack and hang the controller on my jacket pocket.    Also, when the tank was out. I ran the battery tender cable out the back of the battery box also. It comes out on the right side near the right peg/ swing arm area.    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  2008 C14 & 2003 Mean Streak
