I looked at Lifeproof cases then found I could get a cadence and speedo set up for my bicycle so the Wahoo got the call.
The fact that I could use it on the moto was a bonus. Then I got more curious and went back out to the garage and poked at the case. I found a tiny removable panel to access power.
Now, I'll just plug into the outlet in the cockpit and I'm golden.
No more Garmin.

I have no problems with looking at my screens while riding. I ride pretty damned slow. CBDR is probably a four week trip for me.

Now I have an iPhone 5S with the new LifeProof Nuud case that does not have the plastic cover. You just use a normal screen protector, and it's still waterproof down to six feet.

The power comes from a power port that I put in the bike. I bought a hard wired USB port off of eBay to charge the phone while riding. That didn't work out really well. I'm going to install a standard car charger socket and just use an adapter.

One thing I can say after using your setup for a year is that if you are following tracks on your screen, the screen needs to be mounted up higher so that you can see the screen without tilting your head up and down. This view shows me riding on the BDR, and you can see my head going up and down, up and down trying to get an idea of what the track looked like ahead and to see where the next turns were. Dang near ran off the cliff at one point.


I'm planning on mounting my bar mount on a new mount attached to my screen to get it up as high as possible.

I am going to get the bar that mounts to the cockpit above the speedo. Touratech part. And use a GoPRo clamp to mount the GPS lockmount for my case.
I put a second socket inside the glovebox and have a double USB plug so I've covered I guess for power besides that one i the cockpit.

It's dry and slippery here in AZ. My TKC 80 and Mefo needed a few more edges to help find traction.

Hey thanks!

The 19/17 wheels and street tires make it beautiful to ride in the city and on the highway.

Pipes sound good to.

'14 1190 Adventure R Electric Accessories

  • Installed KTM heated grips
  • Installed Automotive relay to allow accessories to be powered up only when ignition is on
  • Replaced cheesy cigarette lighter with spring loaded cap Powerlet socket - also powered only when ignition is on
  • Installed and wired GPS using KTM mount kit

You probably want to remove this 10A fuse (the one that's missing) before starting in with your accessory circuit wiring.


The Powerlet socket requires 11/16" hole but the existing cigarette lighter hole was about an inch. You'll need to provide something like a body washer on both sides of the hole as I've done here then drill out the washers to the 11/16" dimension. Note the automotive relay mounted on the bottom of the housing extending forward. The relay fits neatly between the headlight housing and the ignition/instrumentation panel cover.


Here you can see the wires with spade connectors coming through the existing hole into the headlight housing


Here you can see the accessory socket housing removed from the bike before reassembly


The automotive relay coil is energized by the 1A ACC2 plugs provided. This circuit has some slightly unexpected behavior in that it does not immediately de-energize to 0VDC when the ignition is switched off. Instead, it drops to about 7.6 VDC for 60 seconds before de-energizing completely to 0VDC. The relay drops immediately however since the applied voltage isn't enough to keep it energized. I haven't yet run the setup but will report any problems if they occur. The 10A ACC1 plugs provide the relay switched power.

Learning curve for posting photos using Dropbox

Sorry, I struggled a bit to get the photos to show up. It's my first attempt and I'm using Dropbox for photo hosting. It needs a bit more effort than some other photo hosting sites.

Anyway, the photos are showing up for me now so hopefully you can see them too.
