Well a rainy day, some time to spare and I added two USB power ports, installed my Fuzeblock power management and wired in the outlet for my heated gear.
Borrowing a great idea I saw here on BUSA I installed my Fuzeblock in the stock tool kit area. This gave easy access to the battery, and it was no hard to run wires up to the dash. I used two of the 6 connections in the block for the heated gear, two for my USB outlets (I know over kill, but I wired one to be constant supply and one to be switched). and took the time to hook up the remaining two and run wires to dead head in the dash for future use. With the heated gear using 15 A, the USBs maxing at 4 A, I still have 11 A for future use. I figure on adding LED Aux Driving lights.

I've wired the top USB to be constant on, I figure a plugged in cell or GPS in an emergency sucking 1 amp isn't going to kill anything too fast (and it's super easy to change if I want - just move the fuse to the other side.)... The bottom one is switched as are all the other connections in my setup.

I'm liking what you have done, though was about to ask how you went about threading the cable from the fuseblock under the seat, down behind the lower seat tupperware, before routing underneath the engine inspection cover (which is easy in-itself) and then behind the forward tunnel tupperware and to the top "glove" box section tupperware. Then I browsed down your photos and saw that you bypassed threading the wiring down behind the lower seat tupperware. What did you do about the wiring at the other end (front / forward of the mid section [tunnel])?

I'm also really intrigued on what you will use for the LED front lighting and how you plan on mounting them? I ask this as I have bought several pairs of different type of LED lights from the typical type found on ADV style bikes (as I have installed on my XT1200Z) and recently bought some smaller single LEDs lights from this advertiser/seller ( http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=2095 ... 96f3c0783a ). The main reason I want LEDs on my AN650's (K3 & K7) is twofold. One for improved lighting period (I do a lot of night riding), and more importantly to provide other road users some better indication as to the size and width of the Burgy. When viewed from the front even with both headlights on, the front profile can be quite deceptive to an oncoming road user, especially if the roadway is busy or the other road user takes a short glance. The profile they might pick up in that nanosecond would appear very narrow indeed. I'm wanting to have some type of lighting that increases the width substantially by somehow fabricating and installing smallish LEDs out near/on the mirror/indicator housings or at least nearby. Even though my K3 is silver and the K7 is white, other vehicle drivers in mainland China where I spend most of my time (and where I have the k7), drive like craZies, passing and overtaking on blind corners, or even straight sections of road forcing other roads users to take avoiding action. This is done more so when the other approaching vehicle is a motorbike/scooter, as the vast majority or around 125-150cc or electric. I'm wanting to increase the profile and therefore road presence so that any driver might be inclined to give their intended passing manoeuvre a second thought. As it is I have had more than one approaching car overtake and subsequently hitting my left hand mirror. The last time, the lens popped out and was shattered by following vehicles. Consequently I'm currently looking to buy a replacement lens, not easily done in mainland China.

Unfortunately the indicators up front aren't the dual filament type that integrate amber driving lights as some might. I had thought to attempt to adapt the front indicator reflector to accept a single push in type LED and wire them accordingly, but I think the wiring part will be more problematic than adding external after market LEDs like those I bought in the "taobao" advert linked above.

Any ideas, advice or links to what others have done. Incidentally I am not wanting to ad LED's low down, as some have done of the lower portion of the front forks. I'd only contemplate that after I'd installed an option for extra lights higher up on the scoot.

Hey Bikerdoc,

I routed most of the wires down beside the battery, where the main fuses are, and then along the lower frame using zip ties and up in to the dash area by going under the main glove box near the radiator. I bundled all these wires in to a conduit for the run and also put in the switched power trigger wire which I tapped into the factory cigarette plug. The wire you see in the photo going over the battery cover is the lead for my heated gear which comes out from under the front of the seat for easy access. My jackets power wire is front center.

I used a dremel tool to cut out and finish up the holes for the USB plugs to go in. Have to fix up that one slip you can see in the pics... oops... grrrr...

A for Aux lights I plan on getting a set like Dabbo or TechArt guy put on there's, 3 or 4 LED aux driving lights. I think I'm going to add them to the front forks down on the fender bolt.

I also have the parts, but ran out of wire... to convert my front turn signals to 1157 so I can have them as dual running / turn lights.

Where did you obtain the USB ports?

Hi OnTalyn, thanks for the reply. I'm curious about the last sentence in your reply concerning the ability to change out the front indicators/turn signals to "1157"? Would you mind advising what is involved in that and where one might be able to buy a kit or what "parts" are required? I assume that the "1157" refers to a known code for those models of Burgman that have integrated/dual front running lights with indicators/turn signals?
Cheers, BD

1157A is the bulb he wants to switch to instead of the 1156A.

The 1157 has two filaments while the 1156 has only one.

Think of your brake lights.

He is going to remove the original sockets and replace them with dual filament sockets and then wire them to have both a signal and a marker lights in the same bulb. Do a search and you will find several threads where this has been done with instructions.

ask again: Where did you get the USB ports. I want to install not only on my Burgman but on the dash of my Isuzu truck as well.

Cheers Gambit, Got it. Makes complete sense, just hadn't realised the "1157" was referring to the bulbs. Since I'd like to have some additional lighting up high and out wide like marker lights as described in my previous reply above, I'm interested in the addition of the dual filament bulbs. Will do a search to see if I can find the relevant threads you refer to that hopefully outline the wiring required.

:)
