For the record I have had great luck with posi locks.

I use the twist and tape method. Flawless

It would be difficult... Since it's liquid at cold temps. Post picts if you figure it out!

the boiling point of mercury is directly proportional to the success of Fernando Alonso...

I just finished using TuneECU to update my XC's map from 20629 to 20635, and to reset the TPS.

I'll let you all know if I notice any differences from riding.

Heated gear is easily handled via the existing Powerlet, and there's a knockout and existing pigtail for a second one next to the battery. $15, 5 minute install, already fused.

GPS - no need for an individual circuit. They draw so little, you can tap and fuse into any of a number of places. I tapped into my aux light circuit, which has plenty of excess juice since I went with LED's over the OEM aux lights.

Aux lights and heated grips don't require a circuit - both exist already, and tapping into the existing fused pigtails is cheap and easy.

So again...for most owners, the 3 extra circuits provided by the Eastern Beaver unit is plenty. For those who need more - there's plenty enough room by the battery for 2 of the Eastern Beaver units.

Rather than detail out my reasoning, which will bore most of you, confuse some of you, and piss off a lot of you, I'll just say I have reasons why I want to do what I want to do and I know how I prefer to do that. Syspig is right, most riders won't want/need to do what I plan- in fact, I suspect most riders won't feel the need to stray outside the confines of normality at all. That's OK, I know I'm a freak... and let's move on.

Ahhh, the lone wolf routine. How mysterious. I don't see any chicks around so can save lots of time and just say you don't like 'em and be done with it .

Just put up a post over in Craig's (CJ Designs) 800XC rack thread...it's a sweet piece for those who aren't familiar with it.

And, I stumbled upon a slick and relatively cheap setup using his rack for those that like Pelican top boxes. Quick release and tons of positioning options.

Nice write up! I am on the waiting list for his next batch of racks. I was planning on using a Pelican 1450 case but really like your mounting idea, thanks for the tip

Was kinda thinking the same, but I guess his point is that the Tiger rider mostly rides around the puddles. Instead of through them...

The puddles were avoided to keep the camera lens clear for the viewer. Back to your regularly scheduled posi-lock programming.
