Well, if you have not see it, I would suggest reading through the semi- tutorial on the install- there is one here: http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/docs/Rostra%20install.htm



I would allow at least 3 or 4 full days for this install.

Best of luck if you do install one.

I assume that IBA certificate was for a SaddleSore 1000? Congrats!

Yep, days.... Earth days. It can be done in less time but some have taken weeks so I never, ever recommend less than a full two days and often that is not enough. As per an earlier thread, you seem fairly new to splicing wires so I thought it might take someone at that level a little longer. Besides, better to be finished before expected than to still be working on the thing long after the time you had supposed it would take, right?

Again, take a good look at the tutorial and see how long you think it will take you, with the tools and abilities available to you, to install one of those.

It would take me a lifetime or most likely never get off the shelf.  But then again if it was top shelf, it wouldn't be gathering any dust at all.

Congrats on your SS1000!

Thanks guys!!  Yes, my IBA is the SaddleSore 1000.

Brian, you are correct that I was learning about crimping a few weeks ago with my lighting project. I did buy a nice crimping tool.
My biggest concern with installing the Rostra is locating the proper wires on the bike to connect into.

I saw my C14 today for the first time in months.  I picked up my registration sticker last week and wanted to get it on the bike before I lost it.   There it was under a cover, tucked between a 'vette & a drag car.  Just like I had left it.  No fob with or I would have turned the key to check the battery voltage.  Should be no problem there with the tender hooked up.  Winter storage is in a friend's heated garage.  I usually just drop it off in November and pick it up in April depending on weather.  My last big ice fishing trip is this week so come on April!

The temp was in the mid 70's today, and I had to ride.  Been a while, as unemployment mandates how limited funds are spent.  Filled up, $2.15 a gallon for premium, WOW!  Realized too late that I had left my earplugs at home.  Bad move.  Then realized that every school zone was active at 20MPH.  Was out for an hour and made only 20 miles, added that  home bound traffic jams had already started too.   It was still refreshing just to feel the bike work out beneath me.  Hope to ride again tomorrow, before the cold and wet arrive again. 

A great week to all, riding or not.  tomp

Glad that you were out riding. I'm sure even the short slow ride helped refresh your mind.
You'll find a job.  Positive thinking is key.

After over a week of flu and another week of horrible weather, I finally got out on Sunday for a 2 hour ride.  Rewarded the bike after by washing it (well, and the car too, they were both way overdue).  If the rain chooses not to invade this coming Sun, I will take the bike to RIC on Sun to visit mom.

Hope the weather co-operates for you.  Low mid 60's here this weekend.  Need to get the Dyna, RT, and Ninja out soon, before they commit mutiny in the garage.  tomp
