Okay - some pics:
Haven't ever posted pics, sorry if this doesn't work as planned.
First pic is of the various adapters and connectors. "1-5" from left to right:
1) this thing came with the direct wire cord. You clip it to the wire you want to tap into. It says only for use on 14-18ga wires. The hinge has a slot that accepts part No 2. I kept flip flopping between - "wow that's slick" (you can choose a keyed wire and the radar will turn off when bike is turned off) to "wow that's cheesy" (messing with the integrity of the wires already in place). In the end it was easier to hook to the battery than decide what wire to tap. Besides, I'm not going to leave the moto unattended with the radar in place, anyway. I'm locking it in my new Givi topcase! (Yay!)
2) and 3) these were on the cord when I bought it. Part 2 is a tab that slides into the back of the hinge of part 1 when it's clipped around a wire. Part 3 is the ground wire - the ring was a little too small to fit my battery terminal bolt
4) and 5) I bought a box of these ( 1/4 " ring terminals) at PepBoys (auto parts store) - $2.50 for 16 of them. I cut off the original terminal connections and put these on so I could attach the cord straight to the battery. Don't mix up the ground and the positive wires! It's 18ga wire, by the way. Incidentally, in looking at the box, I see they're meant for 14-16 ga wires. Seems to work on my 18ga, although I had to work hard to crimp them down tight enough. We'll see if they hold. I only brought the bolt with me to the store, I didn't think to bring the cord itself.
Next pic shows the battery terminals/conenction points.
Third pic is a close up of terminal connection. I tried to show the nut in the little bracket. I think the bracket is supposed to keep the nut from spinning when you replace the bolt. I'm guessing the nuts aren't original, because they're a bit small, and spin around anyway. No matter - a screwdriver or tweezers will hold them in place while screwing in bolt. The picture is blurry, and it looks like there's some piece of metal hanging in front of the nut. It's not there - I went back outside to check. Must be some wierd reflection or something.
Fourth pic - the excess wire zip tied to frame. I'll neaten it up before I put it all back together. Don't let it rest on the plastic covering for the rear wheel. The seat will push on it, and you smell burning plastic when you hit the throttle! (I learned this by having some other junk crammed under the seat.)
Hope this is what you were looking for!
