Would you change from a AT to a Dero?[/QUOTE]


No. I have both, but my AT is still the favourate. I'll even consider trading the dero for another, but not the AT

I sadly sold my Africa twin a year ago because of the lack of power on tar. Offroad she went great, but a little slow and felt stressed at 100mph freeway speeds.

Never! I would keep the @twin besides the Dero. It's an classic!

I still regret the fact that we soled our @twin back in 2004. Lucky me... still got two RD01's but that's an other slize of bread...

Yep you have to remove the tank which is a bit of a pain but not too bad. You should also remove left and right fairing lowers although strictly speaking you don't have to. I have an 09 with the factory heated grips and SW bars that I installed I also live in Southern Ontario (Aurora) and would be happy to give you a hand. PM if you're interested.

New Varadero rider...

Posted this in the other Varadero thread already:

Was looking around but could not find anything... where did you guys install your 12V accessory socket? Ordered mine from dealership along with the bike and their mechanic said that space is really limited and was not sure where he would be able to install it?!? Was hoping to have it somewhere on the dashboard, near the handlebar - mainly for GPS.
Any pics would be much appreciated!

BTW, Varadero is 2009, socket is OEM Part #: 08A30-MBT-800, if that makes any difference

TIA

the dealer mounted mine in that little storage compartment on the right side. I just plug my GPS into there and close the door making sure enough slack is available from the cable.

Wondering if anyone has the PC-V on their 09 Varadero and if they noticed a major difference, both in performance (ie more torque or overall HP etc) and also if they noticed a difference one way or the other for fuel consumption?

Thanks,
Happy riding! (now that the snow finally is melting)

I've just installed it in the dash since my '04 doesn't have a storage compartment (= handglove compartment ;) )
Got a waterproof one though (Honda Original). But if I had any after 2007 MK2, I would install it in the storage compartment too!

Hey,

I recently installed my own socket and got the SW MOTECH socket as it is very easy to install and doesn't get in the way of anything. Mounts right to the handlebars.

Cheers!

Thanks everyone.
So, the socket went on the panel above the storage.

Also got my centerstand. Was a bit nervous when I was about to put it on the centerstand for the first time, since this is the heaviest bike I had so far, but it went on like a charm. Very well designed.

Only two rides so far. Both to the dealership and back. It looks something is wrong with my ODO. I know for fact it's exactly 10 km from my house to the dealer, and yet ODO is showing 150km ?!?

Glad to hear there's another Dero rider on board. Re the ODO is it on the trip "A" or "B" settting ? I use the "B" setting as a rough guide to replace the missing fuel guage.
