I'm trying to locate the guy on EBay who was making up 3 unit fused wiring
harness that plugs into an existing keyed accesory plug on my v strom. He
sells the wiring harness for $40.00 which includes shipping in the lower 48.
At this price it's not worth buying the bits to make my own. I have both my
electric vest and a power outlet wired directly to the battery with inline
cartrige fuses. I want to hook up my grip heaters but want them off when
the bike is off. I forget to turn stuff like that off. I've only used the
power outlet for a small air compressor and when I forget about the electric
vest the leash to the bike reminds me in less than a step away from the
Any body know anything about the Charraral motor cycle. There is a 100 cc
1971 for sale localy. Might be an interesting project now that I sold my
1973 Hodaka Dirt Squirt.
