    Thanks! Here's a pic of it installed on the bike with some zip tie anchors. I will be adding loomed 10ga wire straight to the battery, more pics to come.

    I mounted the 5025 using (4) standoff spacers underneath the unit with long screws shown in the four corners.

    For what it's worth, all connections are silver-soldered, and certain wires jacketed with convoluted tubing for abrasiion resistance. Both of which will mitigate electrical issues on the road.

    Nice, looks clean. Similar to what I am doing with all ring terminals soldered, wire split loomed and heat shrink installed over ring terminals and meeting the loom for extra protection. Going to be constructing a very clean light bar for the bike over the next two weeks. If it turns out well enough I may mass produce some if the demand is there as the quality will be concurrent with much more expensive models.

    It will be an aluminum solid roundstock mount for the driving lights of your choice. Mine will support dual HID Micro DE's but the bar will be built to last with final dimensions (measurement from bike fairing to the furthest point away) that can be specified with order. The standard dimensions will hug in pretty tight as I don't want them to be beaten in a light crash. The point is to match the size of the front fender support/oil cooler mount/subframe and flow nicely with the contours of the bike. Colors will be customizable as well to match frame or 60% black. I am going to try to keep the cost below 50 dollars, I have materials coming for prototypes next week. We'll see how she goes!

    Reislust. I LOVE how clean your setup is, but did you have to raise your seat to it's highest position in order to fit the 5025 under it? I borrowed a buddy's before he installed it on his 1150 GSA and I could not get the seat to latch shut while at the lower setting.

    I had that on my old R1200 GS, fit just fine with the seat in the low position!

    I went to Advanced Auto Supply and bought a fuel pump relay for a 99 Ford Explorer for 4 bucks and a Bussman fuse block for 7 dollars. It all fits neatly in the area under the tool tray. Been working perfectly for 2.5 years 24k miles. total cost 11 bucks.:D
