Can someone tell me how would I know if I have heated grips (yes I know ....turn em on) , and how do I turn hazard flasher on.
I have switches for both but not entirely sure if there is anything attached to the switches.

also what mount is recommended for gps.

ok heated grips are working as far as I can tell. I guess I wasn't giving them enough time, or maybe the batery was down a bit.

nothing happening with the ''hazard's'' though.
Ign on, hit the switch....nothing.
Indicators are working ok.

Idea's please

as usual rod, the flashers switch usually suffer from corrosion across the switch contacts .

take the switch out and clean it up ?

there are a few threads on gps mounting ...have you tried the search feature ?

Good point, i'll give that a go.

No i never thought of searching here, I did find ''RAM mounts'' on Google though.
Guess its just a matter of deciding what you want and where you want to put it.
Mounting on the brake reservoir cover seems neat.

Emergency flashers only work with the engine running, although they'll remain on after the engine is shut off (but this is a major battery drain, so be forewarned).
