I found mine at Autozone. It was like $2.50 or so.

Let me know how it all works out!

Which GPS did you get?

[QUOTE=asbrand;134959]I found mine at Autozone. It was like $2.50 or so.

I found mine there too; made a trip to Wally World for the zip ties, heat shrink, and outlet. Since I already have a pigtail, I just need to decide where I want to position it. I'll probably just use mine for charging my cell phone until I decide if I want a gps. Heck, I may not need the outlet at all; I want it just because and just in case.

The 12vlt All Weather Cigarette Outlet I got at Wal-Mart in the automotive section. About $9. Got the heat shrink tubing there too...about $4.

The SAE-2 extension cable I found at AutoZone for about $3.
Thanks asbrand, your pictures got me motivated to install an outlet on my bike too,I already had the waterproof one with the rubber cap/plug and made for flush mounting so I just put it in the right neck cover like that other picture, I think you posted.I need to get an outlet like you used for my atv ,it will work better on the old Honda than this flush mount one would have.

I've had a GPS for a while, I havn't bought the bracket for it yet because I keep forgetting to look at the model number >.<

I'm waiting for my Pigtail to come in, and then I'll work on doing the install. It probably wont be this weekend because I have my safety class. I've also got to start my voltmeter project and install a new chrome grille cover. I really need to find some more free time, lol. I'll make sure to get some updated pictures of everything too, I still don't have any with my new bags on either.

It is a little low, but if you notice the bike isn't running and the lights are on... so a little drain on the battery would be normal.

Actually the bike is running. It is at about 800rpm. Also at that time I had the meter running off of the light curcuit. Now I have a relay off of the lights circuit and the meter off of the asesory wire in the light bucket. Works better.

I want one! I am going to install a second outlet about where yours is behind my little fairing windscreen combo,just for the voltmeter,has any body here seen those rear view cameras at advance with the little screen, that would look about right between the tach and speedo.The camera mounts on your license plate and from what me and the guy at the store could see it is a pretty wide angle and has a range of at least 250 feet straight back. I am trying to talk myself into it as a safety feature.It is priced at 79 bucks what 's the opinions here,I am tired of the cops sneaking up on me and every body else,I have to run spots on my mirrors with the narrower bars and my wide body even to see back there if you know what I mean.
