Powerlet

Big thumbs up for the Powerlet company. I ordered a VStrom front panel kit last week, and it arrived on Monday. It did not have the Cigarette lighter receptacle that I thought was pictured on the retailers website. So I called the company direct to see if they had the panel recceptacle that I wanted. I explained the mixup, and she (Kathy) asked me about my application, including whether or not I had enough room to fit the larger cigar adapter. After that, she said she would send one right out, and I was to return the standard receptacle to her attention. I didn't even have to go through the retailer I bought it from. Excellent customer service, and the product is built very well. I fully endorse this one.

Follow-up. Easy as pie installation. Attach red wire to Pos. Batt. Terminal, black wire to ground. Route wire through bodywork to desired installation location. Drill hole (I avoided this step), attach supplied receptacle to wire w/ quick-connect, install fuse, done. Took me all of 10 minutes tops, and most of that was spent figuring out where to put the receptacle. It is designed for installation in the front panel, but that would require drilling a 1.25" hole, and I am avoiding that if possible. Right now it is routed to a metal bracket that routes the brake lines on the tree. The bracket diameter was perfect to fit the powerlet recept. I'll get pics later.

Nah, no kick-backs, I just think it is a kewl product that should have been installed by the factory. For $35 though, it was worth it. Now I won't burn through batteries on my GPS when I do these future trips.

Gotta let the poor guy know at least ONE person read his thread. Those ole Strom owners are a rare and lonely breed.

So far the plans are in the works for me and Hondaf4iguy to ride it down there via back roads, and hang with you freaks for at least a day. I put our route together yesterday, and will go over it with him this weekend. 1,382 miles round-trip if I remember correctly.

You know he's going to be upset when he gets all excited, bites it in the boob and it flies out the window.

But this time, the doll won't scream like Mulford did.
