Oh man, I think I just had an inappropriate response to those pictures! A little of that carbon decally stuff in the inter bits of the hand guard shields would be tasty too. I know it wouldn't last a minute in the bush, but it would be good for the beauty shots.

Cool thing is I have a huge roll of it from when I covered my 950's glove box lid with it.



I made a template.. so it would take me less than 5 minutes to peal it off and replace it depending on how much I tear it up in the woods

If I find myself shredding it every ride.. I'll probably just mask it off and paint it.

Great look, you could use some on the tank insets too.

I'm back in the garage this weekend looking to finish up the installation of my HDB hand guards and heated grips.

As already suggested I would like to use the fan connector under the tank to power the grips. The molex connector on the now unused license plate illumination light matches this connector and the wire is more than long enough to get up behind the headlight. How would I know which side of the fan power connector is power, and which is ground?

Thanks!

I've just completed exactly what your doing, at least installing HDB setup with heated grips. I used a Battery Tender lead, (it's Fused) from the battery up to the headlight. Made my own male/female connector set up. Put the headlight on right side of the handlebar bracket and the heated grips on the other. I only wired the heated grips for the low side. Less amps and convenience, used the HWD push buttons for both. Turned out real good! Only problem I can see is leaving the grips on! I'll have to be very causes about that!

I want to use a switched circuit so I know if the key is off, there is no power drain.

My thought was not to use or rob power from another circuit, not really knowing just how many amps the grips would pull. My xc doesn't have a key.
