Mounting Gerbing Perm Controller

I want to mount my Gerbing Dual Controller to the left side of the dash same area as Griff did but what way do I do it?

Do I need to pull the plastic off the front side that has the head light or do I pull the dash part somehow?

I do have the Motorrad DVD but I need a starting side

I mounted mine on the left hand side of the bike and picked up power from a Blue Sea fuse block. I routed the Gerbing plug along the left side of the bike. It exists at the side of my saddle.

Fuse Block


Gerbing Controller (Green Plastic Looking Thing)


The Warm and Safe controller is compatible with Gerbings heated liners and to me, seem to be a little more robust in design than the Gerbing controller. I will use the Warm and Safe next time.

If you look carefully, you can see the knob in the first photo. It is on the flat black horizontal panel, straight above the top left corner of the fuse block.

Thanks X, I wonder if I can reach the vertical part from under there? I might give that a try this weekend, and install my Suburban Machine barback, and work on my Phoenix switch

Heat control

Similar mount. Left dash panel is pretty accessible with the tuperware removed. I mounted my fuseblock right on top of the battery. Only two screws if you need to change or check a fuse.

Fuseblock

Block on top of the batt. Relay controlled so it only powers up when the key is on.

Questions: What do those 2 extra switches on the handlebar operate and where did you buy them?

Thanks
