Sorry I could not find where some one was asking how others installed their GPS. See pics attached this is a chrome RAM 1 1/2 arm. I wanted the unit low not high up on the bars. anyway sorry for delay, again could not find the original request.

Why would you do this? I added a power point in the left side glove box and plug my GPS into that. I have a $10 handlebar mount from ebay.

I did run a new power lead for my HIDs but that was necessary for clean uninterrupted power.

Don’t like to use light outlets for powering devices, too much trouble once the lighter plug or socket start to wear due to vibration. I took it to the fuse box because there is a 2 amp spare fuse for the GPS. The GPS turns on automatically when I turn on the ignition switch to ignition or auxiliary. Taking the tank off is really easy (see thread in “do-it –yourself’ with pictures). What’s HID’s? Something contagious?

Thanks gentleman, It is possible that this thread was intended for me. I like the idea of wiring it to the fuse box better as well. Thanks for the pictures..

HID is that newfangled thing that came out in 1992. It is true that taking of the tank is easy, but it is much easier to tap off the wiring on the fairing mounted power point to hard wire items. It is also only powered when ignition is on.
