Cruise install?

Anyone install cruise themselves?

Stealer wants 3 hours @ 80 pr hr to install.

Considering doing it myself when I have it apart this winter.

$80 an hour sounds good to me. My dealer charges $105 an hour...

If you do the install of parts yourself, you may save a little. The kit just has Handlebar controls and dash switch.
No servo any more. But the Cruise will still need a Dealer Download to activate the Cruise in the ECM.
Most dealers charge a minimum half hour labor to do the download. So you will not save much.
Plus if they do the entire job and there is a problem, they will eat all labor for any repair.
If you install the parts, they will only cover the download. If there is any other problem, you will eat it.

+1 on that. Youll save alil but with the extra money youll pay to have them install it takes all fault away from you if something goes wrong

Maybe.. maybe not. I installed cruise on my 10 RGC.. After hooking it up.. Flipped on the dash switch and guess what.. The CRUISE worked.. I did not need to have Stealer do anything...
So.. Sometimes.. the ECM is enabled when not installed.. FYI... and technically the dealer does not have to download.. The ECM is already cruise functional.. There is a toggle bit that just needs to be turned on.. if it is turned off at the factory.

Note.. when Turning on the dash switch.. If red cruise indicator come on in speedo.. then you're good to go..
