Under the Tupperware

Though I can strip my RT in my sleep today was the first time to remove the bodywork from the 310GS. I installed Wunderlich bar risers and started prepping for an Eastern Beaver PC-8 power distribution unit to power a few accessories - USB, some heated gear, GPS, etc. Lots of fasteners but the primary bodywork comes off in one piece. In any case I snapped a couple of photos sans bodywork.

How did you go working out where all those screws belonged on re-assembly?

I found this useful (and the other associated diagrams) to sort out the specifics on flat or shouldered screw locations.

Gerald, a couple of questions.
Did you order the protective diode as well?
Also, where do you figure to mount the PC-8?
Eastern Beaver is my choice as in the past, for a power box.

Hi Rick - I did not order the diode harness since this bike is not CANBUS and that was the reason for doing so for my RT. I played with it a bit and have decided to install the PC-8 in the rear tray under the seat, where the OEM tool pouch is kept. I moved the tool pouch to my tank bag. That tray is protected from beneath and should have minimal exposure to water, mud, etc. It also allows easy access For the battery connection. Unfortunately I missed the attempted delivery of the PC-8 yesterday and will have to wait until Tuesday as tomorrow is a public holiday... I completed all of the wiring so once it arrives it will be a quick task to complete. I will take a photo and post when complete. GLM

Gerald,
Doh, forgot that about these bikes not being Canbus.
Appreciate the advice about locating the box, sounds like a great spot, hope it fits, let us know please.

As promised, here are a few photos of the Eastern Beaver PC-8 installed in the rear compartment under the seat where the OEM toolkit was stored. Thus far I have wired for front and rear Skene conspicuity lighting, a USB power connection for my phone, an LED voltmeter and an open connection for connecting heated gear.

Nice install, Gerald. Very tidy. I’ve ordered their 3CS-S 3-outlet setup, which is little more than a fused harness with a relay, and should allow me to keep the tools where they are. Right now I don’t think I’ll ever need more than 3 connections (2 switched, 1 unswitched), but...

I just wired mine with zip ties to one of the cables by the clutch. Itís an in-line connector with weather cover.
