Hi all! This is my first post here, but I've been lurking for a while. Thought if I read enough complaints about the GT, I'd talk myself out of getting one
You guys failed to deter me with the seat, windscreen, horn and key threads so I got a demo ride on an 06 a couple weeks ago ... and I'm in lust!
What a bike!!
Just sent my dealer (I ride an 04 RT) an e-mail asking about availability, pricing, etc. on an 07, so I'm sure it'll be a while before I'm a new owner, but the process is underway!
My question is this: I keep reading posts on this and other boards questioning CANBUS and adding farkles. My dealer says the standard powerlet on the side of the GT is rated for no more than 4 amps. I'd guess that's fine for the GPS and (separate) satellite radio I plan to put up front, but not for Gerbings. The dealer said they'd add a second powerlet and run it straight from the battery (for a small charge -- no pun intended
). I suppose that would do the trick for Gerbings, etc.? But will I have difficulty securing the wiring from the original powerlet up to the dash out of the way? Should I try to re-locate that powerlet (the 4 amp one) somewhere closer to the dash like I did on my RT?
And sorry in advance if I have missed this information elsewhere ... I did read the Canbus 101 thread but didn't see this specifically addressed.
