I do all my grocery shopping with my B400 - I have a Givi Flow 35L top-box and between that and the under-seat storage I can fit a lot of groceries. It's definitely a fun ride, but it is also a very practical city commuter - with the ability to travel on the open roads and motorways easily hitting the speed limit.

There are times I'd like more power (like a B650) but my B400 is getting the job done and not using much gas to do it. Keep on running up the miles and having fun, the more you use it the more you realise what a great vehicle this big scooter is.

They're not toys

HUGE, cubic storage under the seat- a 30 pack and a 12 pack in their containers? No problem
A 10 amp power outlet in the glove box
Stout alternator- (something like 400 watts? )
Four valve, Fuel injected, water cooled
Decent weather protection
However, it still sounds like a golf cart.

My MP3-250 sounds like a cross between a golf cart and the Jetsons' car.



Congrats on the Burgie 400! I hope to give one a try soon.

I understand that, but it doesn not show up on any parts fiche, or if it does show up im not sure where, I checked the seat, and a few other things but cant seem to find the light so I can see the price

sometimes they hide parts listed in a different category

I get to do my first commute tonight, and it's supposed to be in the 30s in the morning when I get off shift.

I decided to go ahead and wire for my Gerbing's heated gear and for a Battery Tender jack. There will still be a couple weeks of cold mornings here.

The awesomeness of this little scoot continues...

This is the first bike I've ever worked on that didn't require removing any body work at all, or making any type of modification at all for the wiring.



There is plenty of room in the battery compartment for the inline fuses to fit behind the battery cover. I was able to fish the wires through the front body work into the filler cap area very easily.

A trick I've taught myself over the years is to fold a small cable tie in half and wedge it under the nut on the battery terminal. It holds the nut in place while you make your connections. It makes life easier.



Battery compartment buttoned up. When not in use, the wiring is concealed behind the fuel filler door keeping everything out of the weather. Kewl!

Look under "wiring harness". There is the light, and there is the switch. Combined, they are close to $80 before shipping. I would keep searching ebay for used, on invent your own setup for much less.
