    I would be interested to know why you started this thread. It is not clear from your original post. Perhaps you could articulate. Then the rest of us would know which topics we can address in your thread, and which you would prefer that we avoid.

    Cheers

    I could care less about resume myself. I like the switch design and think the MC looks cheesy, like something that would go on a car. [/QUOTE]

    Sounds like you got a pieced together CAR cruise after all?
    Doesn't it go something like '' Open mouth and insert foot?''

    Did my install today and it went pretty smoothly. I’m a bit OCD about wiring so I probably took longer than most buts it’s done and it works. I mounted the switch to the inside of the mirror mount since I’m adding shorty levers and it works perfectly. Function is great and honestly never thought about needing resume. It holds speed and gives my throttle hand a rest so it’s perfect. And I like the switch, looks more factory than the mccruise version. Theirs would be easier to reach though so it’s really personal preference.

    Glad to hear the inside of the mirror mount works.

    Inside of the mirror mount for me too. I did not want my standard control/lever position changed, and I use the CC infrequently anyway so do not mind reaching for it.

    So who has put any serious miles on this unit? I have my finger hoovering over the buy button and need to get the warm fuzzies on its reliability.

    My PCP CC arrived a few day ago. The packaging and contents were professional and, quite frankly, more than I expected. PCP even threw in a few "goodies" which no one else seems to do these days due to penny pinching. I haven't finished the install yet as I got distracted by a wiring mess I'd been meaning to clean up, but the plug-n-play looks very straight forward.

    Again, I'd like to compliment Powercell for going the extra mile on both it's product and the added effort in trying to please the customer in what is already an expensive "want" item. GOOD JOB, guys!

    Yes, I paid full price. No, I wasn't asked to type anything about the product.

    For @PowerCell and you guys who have installed this on a 1090, how is it supposed to operate? According the instructions, I should press the center button and the blue light is supposed to come on. I get no blue light. When I press up or down, the blue light flashes momentarily, regardless of how long I hold it. I press the center button again, the up and down buttons no longer light the blue light. So it seems the center button is working as an on/off, but the behavior of the light is not as expected. I'm also noticing that my blue LED is on the right, where the photos you guys post shows it on the left.

    The instructions seems out of date for the 1090 - i.e. the OBD connector is sitting on top of the battery tray, so no need to remove the battery or ECU. The throttle plug also seems to be a bit lower on the engine that the in pictures... at least I hope that was the throttle plug - it was the only one I could find that would fit the connector on the harness.

    I'm trying to determine if this is expected before I put the whole thing back together. If the switch needs replacing it's no big deal, but if it's the box or anything else in the wiring harness, re-installing is a little more involved if I put the tank and bodywork all back on before testing it out.

    The factory recently switched the LED colors. Now when you turn the bike on and press the center button, it will shine Red. This is just the power on/off button for the cruise control. When riding the bike you can press either the top or bottom button to engage the cruise control. While cruising the top and bottom buttons can be held in to fine tune the set speed. That's it. Super simple to use...

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm not getting any light to come on of any color when I press the center button, though. Should I put the bike back together and see what it does, or does this sound like a defective unit (switch or box)? I've triple checked all of the plugs, not sure what else I can do at this point.

    The unit I just received has a steady red LED for on. Easy install, really the hardest part was getting to the throttle plug. Mine was snapped in right behind the steering tube and took some finagling to get it to pop out. After that..easy day.

    I thought the instructions were easy to follow and pictures are always nice! Test ride tomorrow...

    Turns out my switch had a bad red LED. Ken got me set up the next day with a replacement and all is well :)
