Brammo Empulse Mods / "hot" 12V connection
« Last post by Roland Stone on October 21, 2014, 10:03:11 PM »
Could get a significant break on my bike insurance if I were to install a burglar alarm but would need a “hot” 12V connection to provide a continuous primary alarm power source. I know of the provided “accessory” (live when ignition is on) 2-pin white nylon molex type connector under the seat, but per Brammo Service, there’s no factory provided 12V hot source. 

If anyone has done a splice to make a hot 2-pin connection I would really appreciate the details.

Thanks

Hi, I'm from Belgium, Antwerp region.
40 years old and happily married, 2 children
After a Bandit 600, FJR, Guzzi 1200 sport, I'm now commuting and traveling on an Aprilia Tuono 4VR.
January 2016 will be the time I'm swapping the bike and since I'm looking at electric bikes for "ages" already, I hope these bikes will be mature enough to take the step by then.
I commute 55km (one way every day) so for commuting there are no cons anymore but I also like to travel a lot (about 350 km/day) and then the mileage devil appears.

I averaged about that distance on my ancient 2012 Zero S this past summer.  Would do it if I had a sponsor.  :-)

Sounds reasonable, Adan.

And I almost always ride naked. (But the bike has a windshield).

I left a comment on the article's web page (without fracking advice!)

My guess, and it is little more than a guess, is that a windshield adds 12-13% range at 75 mph.  12% of 58 is about 7, so Bill's test might be evidence of a 51 mile range at 75 mph without a windshield (and you've got a pretty significant shield -- less than "touring" but more than "sport").  I mention this only because range figures for the current electric bikes are for the naked stock versions.

Interested could ride a Empulse on the big test track on P1

Have there been many who took the test ride?

How accurate is the Empulse speedometer? The Zero speedometers tend to run 5-10% high.

Compared to my GPS, the speedo tends to run about 2 mph faster.

Brammo Empulse Mods / Re: Ordered a windscreen... or better.. Fly screen
« Last post by Shinysideup on October 20, 2014, 11:16:55 AM »
If you want to be free of turbulence, you'll need a screen that is higher than your helmet...

Actually, the MRA screen on my bike, with it's accompanying laminar lip, is just below my helmet and gives some of the cleanest air I've ever experienced with a screen, including a full Parabellum Scout.

Here's a picture of it, though mine is in smoke tint 'cuz it looks way cool. ;)

They are talking 500 km a day...
That could be done with a standard Empulse couldn't it? (starting early  ::) )

Okido, thx. But where did you locate the oil reservoir?

The original 125 ml. Pro-Oiler reservoir can be seen in their Brammo video at 1:15 where the girl installs it behind the battery pack.
