I misjudged the rise of the lower bar clamps I ordered and so Paul let me exchange them for some taller, custom lower bar clamps with a total of 2" more rise than my stock lower clamps. I ordered the YZ High bend Evos to eliminate as much pullback as possible. These bars are 1/2" shorter than the rise of the stock bars so I'll end up with about 1.5" of rise.

I will be ordering a 3 circuit fuse block for my electrical needs. I'm looking at a couple different setups, including
Eastern Beaver and

Whichever I choose, I'll use two low-profile powerlets in the clamp.
Low profile powerlet info here:
But there are many powerlet options.

The third circuit may go towards heated grips, though with the heated gloves, I'm still on the fence. One powerlet will always be hot (non-switched). It will be used for my GPS and for hooking up the battery tender. The other two circuits will be switched, meaning only hot when the ignition is on. The switched powerlet will be used for my heated gear (jacket liner and gloves). The other switched circuit, as mentioned, will likely be used for heated grips.

More pics to follow as the project progresses. Some of the other folks that ordered the new top clamp are further along in the mounting process than I, so hopefully they will post up some images.
Off the road again...just can't wait to get off the road again.
The life I love is making roost with my friends.
