So what is the connector type on the 62 for external power?

You're saying the 62 won't take 12vdc external power? What is the voltage?

New 19" and old 18"

I would like to get a 19" rim on the front of my 2011 990 ADV but stay with the stock 18" on the rear. Goal to get Canyon Carving performance at minimal cost.

Opinions?

If the tire pressure is dropped to 25psi or less isn't it likely to spin the tire on the rim and rip out the valve stem? Do they make rim locks for the wide rims that come on the 990 Adv?
