Motoventure VRR project on an SE with Safari tanks

Hello Everyone.

I had a VRR go bad on my ADV last year, and when I saw this thread about the SE VRR, I started thinking.

The VRR location on the SE is in possibly the worst location for heat buildup.

So when I saw the LAKEMONSTER / Motoventure kit, I had to give it a try.

I contacted LAKEMONSTER and ordered the SE kit for the lower mount.
(Having a Safari tank means you can't use the standard relocation location...)

About one week after I placed my order I received this.

Cool! Time for an evening project.

First: Find motorcycle.
There it is.

Find VRR in front of battery tray under seat.

Remove battery and take out the two screws that hold the VRR to the original mounting location.

Loosen the wiring harness on the left side of the bike and find the plastic clip that connects the red wires from the VRR to the relay.

Disconnect the white connector.

Relocate the VRR and run the wires under / inside the trellis frame on the left side.

Mount the Motoventure VRR mounting plate.

Mount the VRR to the plate.

Nine: Reconnect the wiring, put the battery back, zip-tie everything back into place put the seat back on, and start 'er up!

Take confidence in that you probably will not overheat your VRR, and melt your battery in some remote geographic location and be stranded.

In total this took me about 1.5 hours. But I was taking pictures and had to work around some extra fuel lines for the relocated fuel pump and auxiliary rear fuel tank.

All and all I feel this is a very high quality kit, and fairly easy to do yourself.
