The aluminum bar sucks the heat out on the left while the plastic throttle tube acts like an insulator on the right.
OR you want to run the driving light facing on coming traffic at a lower setting than the ditch side light off the same pot.

I want oncoming traffic to see me.

Why spend $250+ on a fancy do everything fuse block when you can put an inline potentiometer on the feed wire to each side, adjust it once and be done??

Honestly, I'm impressed by how well the crowd input has been received. This device already has more features than 95% of it's users will ever utilize and CC presses on.

CC - don't put so much into it that you price yourself out of the market.

Looking forward to seeing a production unit.

You would need to use two inputs and outputs for that to work. One pot could be connected to both inputs though.

No single problem you might have will likely be economically solved with Motobrain. Motobrain solves SO MANY problems that I think a lot of people will save money with it when all the little bits and bobs of a custom electronics solution are added together.

To have room for expansion.

Even today's cars are more advanced than the Apollo Space vehicles (think Saturn V rockets)

This sort of technology actually SIMPLIFIES creativity.

Nice thing about THIS gizmo, is YOU control the level of technology, and know exactly how to fix it in a pinch... win-win !!

Piece it all together and spend more or get the Motobrain and spend less with a (hopefully) more robust solution than the pieced together solution.

Keep what I said in context - the person I sent that to was referring to independently controlling his heated grips.

Keep what I said in context - the guy wanted to control his heated grips independently which can be done for about $6.

But if you want to get into a shit slinging contest, I could go with a fuseblock ($84 per your example) and an Arduino (~$15) for less than $100. Actually, add a 3 axis controller (~$8) to my list so I can turn off my blinkers automatically when I come out of a turn and to add a motion sensing alarm to my bike.

Of course I'll wait for a production MB - looking forward to it.

Merely pointing out what I had researched for my solution, which would be off the shelf solution, not a hacked together solution (albeit a cool solution using an Arduino).

Not trying to throw rocks or sling fecal matter. :-)

Have a great day.

...plus labor... oh and if that is the only upgrade he will ever contemplate, then why is he here reading this? Just wondering out loud

You sling all that "shit" ONTO your own bike, so we can have something to point at as the tedious status quo.

...labor?? ... cut 2 wires, solder pots, heat shrink, adjust pots - done.

I'm putting an Arduino on a custom 78' R100/7 that I'm building - be happy to show it to you when I'm finished. I was waiting on the MB and still may go MB if the production run hits the streets in the next few months.

Anyway - I'm done - back to our regularly scheduled program.

Keep us posted CC - nice work.

Will do. Things are going perfectly. Next job is updating the iOS software for iOS7 and the new features. My new thermal camera is coming tomorrow which should tell us if there are any hidden problems we cannot see on the boards. Next, it will be time to do some serious testing both on the road and in the lab while the next new form factor prototypes get built up. Then, the long hard process of building a market for this starts. Unless I can make these things by the 1000 they will make little sense to build.

Did the Pace podcast guys ever get back with you regarding a demo unit?

I don't think so. If they did, I missed it.

You are going to control 50w or 100w driving lights with a pot? Heated grips.. maybe.. but I want to see where you mount the pot and what melts next to it.

Ohh.. maybe you are using them new high techy fangled HID's... pot one of those and post up a video when you turn it on please.
