Very Nice! I was seriously thinking of get one of those. If I may ask, where did you get yours and for how much? I know what they retail for. just didn't know if there were any deals to be had through specific vendors. I've been so busy with school, then boards, then job searching I haven't looked!

He said Revzilla had the good price (see above)

Anyone have advice as to the cleanest method to install a single headlight kill switch for a strom? (leaving other bulb lit) Got a warranty on my Tourmaster Synergy jacket and thinking of getting the Gerbing Jacket or Vest from www.heatedclothingoutlet.com - Alreday have the G3 Gloves. I'd prefer the jacket but don't want to push the system beyond its capacity. Already have a voltmeter to install as well. Any advice would be great

All of this spending of money is getting me excited. I'm on the prowl for a new ride but not sure what it is gonna be yet.

Maybe a Harley.


ROFL.

You should try "Eastern Beaver". He's out of Japan, but makes some very nice products.



This kit allows you to switch off one low beam, but automatically turns on both high beams when you flick on the highs.

LINK

He's also got a kit that kills both high and low beam of one light.

IMHO if you're just running gloves and a Jacket the vstrom has the power to do it. If you're adding anything on top of it, it may not be able to run it.

Either way, a volt meter is a good investment, I keep an eye on mine when running heated gear..



..voltage in the upper left hand corner.





... He also sells my favorite fuse panel. I like this one a lot.

strom power

Hb, I've run my 90 watt jacket liner and my symtec grips full blast with no power problems. Didn't use my high beams though. Think a vest and gloves is fine without killin a light.

I'm in Flordia for the week but no bike. RVing with the family. Going the the Supercross race tomorrow. Should be pretty sweet. There is about 8 million bike down here. I've never seen so many chrome pirates at once.
