    I liked your placement of that so much, I tore out my custom wiring Monday night and mounted a low profile powerlet in the same location as you. I put it into my relay box I had already made, and picked up a right angle powerlet plug as well for my 5v usb charger I put together for inside my tank bag. I definitely like the feel of quality in that plug and socket. should be in a good place if I pick up some heated gear as well.

    I was also thinking about the bar mount setup they have as well with the RAM mount on it if and when I decide to get a GPS.

    Just finished some cockpit farkles. My TR is quickly turning into my long distance tagging rig of choice, and these mods will set me up for success. There is nothing worse than getting bruced while fumbling for your phone or GPS.

    First was a 12v outlet in the left fairing. This is a convenient place to put it. It won't clutter the handlebars at all, and it significantly decreases the distance to hit the battery. I like my GPS and 12v outlets to always be hot so I can charge stuff while camping. Thanks to Lekolite for the suggestion on placing the outlet here.

    A RAM smart phone holder went on the left side. On rainy days, the phone will be tucked in my 'stich, but the rest of the time I will put it here.

    I moved my GPS away from the center of the bars. That was just too low. Using a short RAM bar and a mirror mount, I moved it here on the right side. This brings it up and a little closer to me. I suspect this will work nicely.

    And when you put it all together, it looks like this.

    Plus one on that, I put one in at the same location and it's excellent. I'll also be mounting my switch for heated grips beside that soon (hard to prioritize that when it's 95*, but I'll want them soon enough). I went with the Symtec Heat Demons with the round rocker switch. So, I'll basically have a little control panel deal going with that shroud.

    Those are Powermadd risers. They are similar to Rox Risers, but they are one piece construction. This is a nice feature when you crash. The Rox will twist, meaning you'll likely have to readjust your bars. The Powermadds won't twist, so if anything you'll just have to rock it back to the original position. They were $49 on Amazon and shipped for free.

    You don’t have to crash to experience the benefits of the powermadd over the rox.
    Just get your bike stuck and try yanking and dragging it out by the bars.
    I have tweaked/twisted the rox doing this, but not the powermadd

    I'm running it on a Strada. A Terra might be different. However, I just had to reroute the throttle and clutch cable. They weren't bad, but needed more space. They are run very poorly on the front of the bike, and there is a lot of slack to be had just by cleaning that section up. You'll know when you install it.

    One more person that installed a PowerLet 12v on the left fairing. It's direct to the battery with a 15 amp fuse as I like to charge stuff with the key off.

    In my case, I have it hooked to cable that I run inside the tank bag and pair of regular cigarette lighter ends (about $8 bucks from my local auto parts store). In one end I have a dual port USB charger for my iPhone and Sena bluetooth device. The other lighter port is open currently, but could plug in an air inflator or other devices. I also carry an air compressor that has a powerlet end on it from my FJR. Finally, I can also use the Powerlet port to plug into a Battery Tender in my garage.

    One thing that isn't hooked to it is my GPS receiver. I also ran a power block into the headlight area for my LED lights and ran my cable to it...so I only really have the one cable in the picture loose and un-ziptied.

    Powerlets aren't the cheapest in the world, but they sure make life easy when you bite the bullet and decide to equip your motorcycle fleet with them.

    I'm saving that 12v accessory on the right side of the bike for my auxiliary lights. I've got a damaged set from an inmate on ADV that I plan on modifying soon. More to follow on that. This whole getting ready for a baby thing while simultaneously rescuing the in-laws from a blown-up Harley Davidson thing is crimping my Husky time.

    Wow, not sure how they even make them for that much. Here is a version so you can go with fatbars...

    Perfect rise for me.. Throttle seems to have enough play but the clutch cable could use a lot more play.. Haven't been able to find a route that is any better though.. Any tips? Significant rub through on the cable at the top and bottom of the radiator where the cable touches. But mostly at the bottom. Tried 3 or 4 different routes but not really happy with any.

    Has anyone that installed the Powermadd risers needed to reroute the throttle cable? I rerouted the clutch cable and no more issues on that side. But with the throttle cable play gets too tight with the handle bars on full right lock. It gets pretty interesting doing tight maneuvers if the bike starts giving it some extra throttle all on its own :rolleyes:.
    What do you guys reckon is the best path to reroute the throttle cable?

    I just installed the Powermadd risers on my Terra. I moved the clutch cable, but everyting else was OK from lock to lock.

    I just rotated the throttle housing so the cable runs under the brake lever vs over it.
    I have done this on just about every bike I have added risers to.

    Yep, I had to reroute the throttle too. Easy peasy. Just drop it from the handlebar side and find a more direct route, of which there are many.
