Thought I'd share ....


Set about hacking a hole into the fairing with a scalpel and a blow torch. Obviously, i heated the scalpel, then used it to melt the plastic....

Then set to it with a dremel and an eye for something round.....

And hey Presto!! It is wired into a switched supply, straight from the battery so should be accurate enough for my needs.

Now... what to do next....

There was already an oblong hole there... otherwise I would've used a hole cutter!

And why not?? :lol:


Seriously though, running acessories such as grips, vest, fog lights etc Its just nice to see if I am overloading the system or not. And also, it will hopefully give early warning of any battery problems... so nur nur nur..
