You'll love it.. it fits perfect on the bike and you can grab stuff easily even while on the trail.. namely the camera! I saw BigDog and skierd running it way back in the thread so I snagged it right off. Even put the garage door opener in its back pocket when I commute to work!

Next up for me is a dry duffel bag... the cheapy's are tempting me.. Wolfman's is super smooth.. but $100

Not quite a duffle bag but take a look at Sea to Summit Big River Dry Bags. The big ones have 4 loops to run straps through.

m_d, have you figured out where you are going to mount your fuzeblock yet? I'm contemplating whether to get a fuze block or the Eastern Beaver 3 circuit solution (for space reasons). Are you planning on doing a write up on the install to help out mechanically challenged dummies like me?

What are you guys using for tie down straps other than bungee cords?

That's the module I plan on getting this winter. It's just going to be pretty crowded under my seat since I've not removed anything (AIS, EXUP, etc.) and plan on fitting an EB fuseblock under there, too.

17 above? Must be nice to be so balmy. 17 below here for the last 5 days. Finally got above Zero yesterday, though. To think I was enjoying 20 degree days, on my daily commutes on the bike, just a couple weeks ago. It's supposed to be back up, maybe, into the 20s soon, but have to watch the roads for snow and ice from now on. I've plugged the minibike into the battery tender for the first time since I bought it last March. I'd ridden it at least every 2 or 3 days since owning it. I'd actually plugged my truck into the battery tender because it was sitting 7 - 10 days at a time.

On my rear rack, I use some simple, light weight, cam buckle straps from Wally world. Basically ust a lightweight version of the straps one uses to haul your bike minus the hook ends. I think a pair was less than $10. I shortened one so there was less strap to deal with day to day. Cut it and melted it so it won't fray. The long one I keep in the dirtbagz. The "short" one (will still secure a 2' x 2' box on the rear rack) is always on the rear rack and ready for action.

I am seeing some left over 08's at dealer's here in NJ. I assume they are left over's..they are labeled as "new".

Their price is right.

Any reason to stay away from the 08's?

The only thing I recall hearing was about faulty fuel pumps, which would leave you stuck with no warning.

Thanks for any info.

Great setup. I've seen the Back-off unit in action...it really gets your attention. Increasing the size of your signature with the hyperlites is another great idea...especially for foggy weather.

The points other posters made about hand signals is also really good stuff.

I agree with ChadX, it's going to be crowded under the seat with the AIS, etc, still intact. This might be the motivation for me to finally remove the stuff; as I definately want to mount the Fuzeblock high under the seat.

Yessiree, I'll photo-document the good, the bad, and the ugly of my install. Work is usually slow this time of year; however this year it's crazy making busy. I still owe Greer some pics and a write-up on the Laminar Lip!

I slid the module into this opening and tie wrapped it.

I found room here for the 3CS even with all stock components. This position gives quick access to check fuses. I tucked the relay under the vacuum line to the air box lid and the relay fuse next to the left frame rail heading to + power on the battery. All connections to existing wiring or 3CS I used Posi-Taps with labels.

You can also pick up + or - power from the battery relay.

Don't sweat that write up on the LL, Dan. I lucked up and found a used one myself, it's sitting on my kitchen table right now. May be a while before it gets tested, though. Dang Winter! Good luck with your wiring project.
