So this doesn't turn into a big mess. Here's what I'm doing.

The standard harness has 9in/225mm of wire. On the 1200, according to the measurements I took, along with JVB's and others, that will easily get the IICE Air from the original sensor location, down to the top of the battery.

which sits UNDER my 2000 1100RT tank

so it will make it non adjustable w/o a major tear down and might as well gotten a non adjustable booster plug.

Please find a way to get it under the seat

MY battery and ABS reservoir are under the fuel tank.
access requires removal of ALL the tupperware then I can lift the tank.

Question

I don't understand.
I do not own a R1200RT, I do not have plans for any R1200 ( no $$$ for one)

I own a R1100RT.




To use the adaptability of your device on my R1100RT it would have to have easy accessible.
This means to get at it easy it has to be under the seat or the bike has to be disassembled to get at it to make changes.


ordered early on, post #31

Alright, that picture is just too cute! Nice doggy!


You don't understand? How do you think I feel?

My harness length post was referencing the 1200, not the 1100/1150. You don't need to connect to the battery to connect the IICE Air. It only connects to the Air Temperature Sensor on the top of the airbox.

On all the 1100s and 1150s, the top of the airbox is right there under the seat.

The harness is 9in/230mm so it will fit the 1200s. And it will reach from the top of the 1200 airbox, to the battery. Which on the 1200s, is right there under the seat.

I'm sorting out the holding fixture for the potting process. There's a lot of items to hold in place just so. Also, how to pour the epoxy and fill the box without making voids. Pour is the really wrong term here, there's no way to pour it, the gaps are too small. Imagine trying to pour maple syrup down a straw.

I'm working on two different methods. One method is to fixture the board exactly aligned, and inject the epoxy with a large bore syringe. The other is to pre-fill the epoxy by weight into an empty box, then plunge the completed board and wires into it.

The hypodermic method has its advantages, but half the time the epoxy doesn't fill properly under the board and a bubble forms, only to pop out later right as the epoxy is setting. Grrrr. The plunge method also has things going for it, but it's very easy to make a small splash. And at this postage stamp scale, a small splash is a wave. Hang five.

I'm going to try a one half pre-fill, then plunge the board and fixture it, followed by a post-fill to the final level. That seems like the best parts of the two methods.

As you can imagine, a mistake during this step makes a scrap part.

Shoot-me-now. That's what I'd be saying if it was me. But, since it's not me, keep on keeping on. You are almost there. We'll keep cheerleading. Not sure how much that helps.....but , hey. It's all we got.

Hey I can't complain, this is a good job. One of the guys on this board calculated that I'm making $0.75 an hour. Every six hours I have enough to buy a Latte at Starbucks, with enough left over to tip the barista!

I'm in Fat City over here.
