I see there is another post on installing a cig plug. here is one more.
Saved a kit from previous years. This is a pretty easy install and can be done on most any machine without a battery. Machines without a battery run AC power and that is not good for accessories.
Here is a link to the kit, it sells for about 50 bucks:
So here is the kit:
Pretty simple. Battery, wires, and cig lighter plug. Next pic is where I am going to install the plug.......I have removed the primer for better access:
Here is the installed plug. You have to cut the hole for it. Choose a place where your drill, hole saw, etc. won't ruin something else on the machine:
Next pic is where I hooked in for power. This bravo has a resister for the hot grips. I spliced on to one of the wires. So the red wire in the photo is the power wire. I attached the ground wire to the screw for the volt regulator:
I had the primer laying in there so it is in the pic but has nothing to do with the installation.
Next you have to mount the battery. As you can see I mounted it on the belt guard. I have also done it this way on the RMKs I used to own in Nome. The kit comes with the clamp, screws, and wing nuts to mount:
That more or less completes the installation. You need to run and secure the kit wiring from the power supply to the battery and then up to the plug. There is no "right or wrong" way to do that. Just make sure you don't run the wire wires where they will get worn or caught in moving parts.
This last pic is the mounted GPS I am going to try and use on the machine. It is a Garmin 296. I'm worried it is too heavy for this and the bouncing around it will get will break the mount. But I will try.
The mount is a RAM mount. The base is screwed down to the cowl and the rest is clamped.
