Finally got round to sorting out the crappy electrics the PO fitted.





Looking better now



Installing an aux fuse box



And now I'm waiting on a fixing kit for a second fan install and fitting a new set of heated grips. Can't wait to get her buttoned up and ride her!!!
I am in the throes of trying to do the same thing. Your work looks nice and neat! Where did you locate the fuse block?

When you say locate the fuse block do you mean where'd I buy it from or where I'm putting it on the bike?? If it's the latter I'm just going to fix it to the under seat storage box. Im hoping to get back in the garage tomorrow when I get up (currently working nightshifts) I'll post up pics of project when I'm done

what brand did you try?
Did you do any other bits?

I think I'm going to do some of the dash panels in my Sprinter next...

I bought a roll from ebay and its pretty good. Next time will buy some that is high quality. I did the gas caps and used a small piece to cover the gouge from my low speed crash while loading it into my truck with a flat. I like the stuff and am going to recover the Glovebox lid on a warm day.

I have those same Rox Risers (1.75") on mine, and it results in the complementary rain trough or coin tray between the stock bar clamps. Does CJ's Cover Plate do anything worthwhile other than cover the lower half-round? I didn't recall seeing them on his website (but then again, I wasn't really looking for one either).

EDIT: Okay, I went and re-checked his site again and found them (and the corresponding information). Now that is a farkle! CJ goes TT!

I may mount a couple switches in it eventually. But I bought one of his Blem's just to cover the rain catcher trough

Installed a Chinese Nautilus in my left side rad cover shroud. Hidden from sight, but still loud.
Inspired by a recent post about using a genuine Stebel horn.

My rad fasteners arrived today, so I trotted down to the damp garage to continue my work.

Fasteners in position



I trimmed a tad off the bottom shroud as it was a bit too close to the hose. This is an OEM fan from another Adventure, so they do fit.



I glued some foam to the shroud of the rad to protect the fins.



In place



Just need to wire it in now

Oh wasn't without a slight hiccup.

Lol! The latter! I've been on a buying/research spree and have looked at or bought just about every damn type of fuse block/power distribution block known to man. I think I am going to mount mine in the glovebox since I use a tank bag. Just trying to gain insight into other mounting locations; I am very indecisive!

Edit: Yes, please post pics!
