    OK, but this really only shows where the control module [hope that is the correct name] was mounted between the left side panel and seat...not where the two leads went or where they were plugged in...yes, without a doubt I can figure that out...but a set of photos showing both plug-in points would complete this "installation" post. I greatly appreciate the product but never understood why a complete series of photos was not taken...but hey, I may have missed them and they may be right in front of me!:wink:

    Nope...you're not the only one. Pretty sure they don't exist and it seems like a basic concept that they should or detailed instructions included.

    Well, here is your chance to become an Internet legend by taking those very photos, since you have a GSA1200 just sitting there ready and willing. :deal

    Think of the fame, the fortune, the women hanging off your arms as you are recognized far and wide for your photographic expertise and assistance to folks all over the world. :gdog:pynd

    This is really your opportunity to be a giver and not a taker just like all true hero's are&#8230; :thumb

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Hey Phil, if you decide to take some pictures, I really only need pics of removing the tank side cover. I have the rest from taking pics of Geoffster's 1200. But the pics of removing the side cover were taken in bright summer sun, with the camera white balance color correction set for office fluorescent lighting. Ooops.

    Oh, and that small black triangular-shaped cover that 'pops into' tabs on the subframe does not need to be removed. Please leave it installed for the pictures. If you take them that is.

    It looks like a batch will be curing in epoxy tomorrow. All together the potting processes take 48 hours. So they can be final-tested on Monday at the earliest.

    I've been in the shop about 5 hours now doing some other operations for the next two batches after this. I'm going to knock off in a bit.

    Install was a snap although my work space is a bit more crowded. Once I pushed aside the 2ft of alarm cabling it took maybe 5 minutes.

    What's that loose connector? It looks like you didn't connect the other lead? ;) ;)

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Assembly report.

    First off, thanks for your installation pictures folks!

    Today I was down in the shop at 7am, coffee and croissant in hand. It wasn't 10 minutes before my neighbor came by and asked me if I wouldn't mind turning the music down. No Led Zep at 7am? Ok, if you say so. :D

    Anyway I'm about finished with some advance work I was doing for the next two batches. There's a few things I have to go out and take care of. When I return this current batch is starting its potting processes.

    Ok, so I did 549 miles today, including GA 60, US129, the Cherohala Skyway, The Dragon at Deal's gap, then back down the GA part of US129... all I can say is AWESOME!!!! This on top of around 300 or so last Sunday. This bike has NEVER ran as good as it has since installing this gadget. One of the best upgrades I've made to this bike. I just wish it had been available years ago. If anyone is still sittin' on the fence, I'd say that you won't regret spendin'; such a paltry sum for the benefits to be had.


    Ok, ok, so it still isn't very scientific... and no, I still haven't disconnected the device and ridden with and without back to back, (thought about it several times today but was having too much damn fun to bother) but I KNOW how this bike's always run and this IS better! :clap
