Canbus
 
Wrecked my 07 non-abs DL650 and looking for a replacement. Tempted to buy another Wee (ABS!) but my riding buddy has an F650GS that he highly recommends (better brakes, better suspension, lower seat height, etc.). If I go with the F, I'm looking for a used 2010-12 and have some questions.

Heard stories about the Canbus (sp) interfering with add on Farkles (one post stated replacing a damaged heated grip required a $100 trip to the dealer, my buddy had to have his dealer do something to his computer after he changed the brake fluid on his RT).

I realize there is a switched outlet by the ignition key. For other switched and unswitched power, can I run +/- hookups directly from the battery to an Eastern Beaver fuse box to power the rest of my accessories without upsetting the Canbus?

TIA, Ian, Iowa

Short answer: Yes. I've done it, and my guess is that most of us here have.

I just had mine installed today. Yes, I paid the dealership to do it just to be 100% safe. Mine is from Touratech and hooks up to the battery terminals and the rear brake light therefore it only powers up when the key is in ON. So far I have a Radar detector and some PIAA lights hooked to it with no worries.
The Can Bus puts a bump on the road when it comes to ease of installations but its easily circumnavigated. :deal
