How bout that... direct customer service right on yr. favorite forum.  :37:

I rolled the Orange Sunshine out after 2 weeks locked in the garage. She started instantly and ran with silky smoothness and perfection. It's always a thrill: if you're up to riding well, the Versys is a precision instrument.

I rechecked the rider sag at 27%, rebounds on a good push go about 1/2in. past the stopping point, once, and settle. The setup feels fantastic, rock solid handling. What a great bike, what a shame to ever have to park it.  :7:

I am sure the Bill is currently redesigning the next version to have the diode built into the package or to use a relay.

The module also requires a few milliamps from a switched ignition feed which I took from the accessory power outlet connection.

Could you explain location of the accessory power outlet you refer to. Thanks
If you ever make a trip to the Philippines, get in touch. I may need a courier for some bike items...:)

There are two round accessory knock-outs on the Versys dash (left and right).  The one on the left is intended for a 12 volt power socket which you can buy from Kawasaki ($$) or from various places online (cheaper).  The one on the right is for a gear indicator, also available as an OEM accessory or from the aftermarket (eBay).

In behind the one on the left, Kawasaki has thoughtfully provided a ground conductor and a switched ignition feed in the event that the owner wishes to install an accessory power socket.  I connected the ignition input for my Skene controller to that switched 12 volt wire because it was convenient.

Let me know if you have any other questions.  :002:
