If the Viffer has one inherent problem...... its that pre-2000 models had rectifier problems. So most of the guys on the VFR board install volt meters.....Honda_Fan said:Nice work. Those Blue Sea boxes are the cat's ass. Does the Viffer have a voltmeter? If not may want to think about one if installing heated gear or does the alt put out plenty of amps?
I had heard about the problems but wasn't sure when they fixed it. Thanks for the info. I'm in a similar boat on my ST since I have a older one with the smaller alt. No heated gear for me besides my grips.67GTONUT said:If the Viffer has one inherent problem...... its that pre-2000 models had rectifier problems.

It was the first mod I did, even though I have a 2000 that should have the updated rectifier ;D
I am not gonna go crazy with heated gear anyway, probably just a heated vest... if anything.
As long as you have room under your seat, this can be done.Woody106 said:Looks great, and a great Idea too, but my electrically ignorant ass has no Idea how to do it. Heres a question, (as I said i have no electrical knowledge, or very little), would it be possible to install something like this on the SV and then somehow wire a converter to it so that I could power my DV cam off the bike rather than the battery? I wanna use a helmet cam, and keep my DV cam in the tankbag, and not have to worry about running out of battery life. Any Ideas guys. Sorry for thread jacking.
