V1K in U.S. part 3
« on: February 12, 2015, 05:30:49 PM »
Up dating my progress. (550 miles)  I purchased reflective burnt orange wheel tape from Tapeworks.com.  In the correct light and angle, the tape perfectly matches Kawi-burnt orange.  Tape Works also sells a tool used to apply the one continuous stripe.  I'm slow, but it only took me 45 seconds per side to apply the tape.  It takes more time cleaning the rim to ensure a great stick.   

I also installed my own D.C. power plug.   The plug cost $12 from Cycle Gear.   Now I need to get a GPS bracket.   :001:

was it hard to find the connector in for the DC power plug? Did you use the one supplied by Kawasaki? I want to do this soon. Bike is looking great!

I went to the Auto Parts store and purchase a box of male and female bullet terminal connectors.  Then crimped them onto the d.c. power socket.   They in turn plugged directly into the available bullet connectors on the bike.  Page 84 in the owner's manual shows the location of these wires.   Nicely enough, they are about 3" away from the hole in the dash where you will place the power socket.
