    I had to add a fuse block and relay because I can't be counted on to turn off my heated grips before I shut the bike off. I got this done just in time for summer.

    So this is what I ended up with.

    So far I only have the grips and plug for my heated jacket liner hooked up. But I'm ready for more!
    This is with the cover on and ready for the seat to go on.

    Question for anyone with this setup: Should I worry much about the Centech or relay getting wet?

    That looks good, I ran the same set up on my KLR, It sat behind the front windscreen shroud. I am sure it got quite wet there and there have been no ill effects after 3 seasons.

    I was just looking last night at where to locate a fuse block for my new Tenere. I had looked at the under seat option but was also toying with putting it where the factory tool kit mounts. I think I like the under seat option better.

    I have been looking but have not found the answers so I will ask.

    What is the harness plug end for tucked in the cubby under the seat? the winch they sell?? I also found 2 more harness plugs unused in the battery area, again I assume one is heated grips and the other aux lights maybe?

    I get some water in that area after a wash but not much. I don't understand why you chose not to use the factory grip wiring though.

    I went with the Oxford heated grips. I'm not entirely happy with them because they are a little short, but other than that they work fine.

    I didn't use the Yamaha grip wiring because I wanted to leave it intact. Just in case I decide to change grips someday, or sell the bike and the next guy wants to. Isn't rule one of farkleing "First, do no harm"? lol.

    Plus, I had the heated jacket liner to hook up and I'm sure other stuff down the road, so I was going to do the fuse block anyway.

    I have my fuse block mounted in that area. I am not running the Centech. No problems so far. I do try to avoid deep water crossings. :D

    I just got other farkles from Touratech to installed on my Super Tenere. :evil:evil

    I enjoyed putting it together and I did an other timelaps video. I am very happy with the look of the crash bars, they look way better in real than what I have seen on the web.

    My biggest chanllenge was to fit the bolt of the skid plate bracket behind the pipe. :becca
    Otherwise, everything is quite simple.
