I must completly agree that PC8 is one of the best purchases I have made for my AT. Things I was totally in left field about became easy. I highly recommend the PC8.

I have had a PC8 on my BMW R1200GS for about a year, it has been perfect. I just ordered the AT specific kit for my new AT based on that experience.

I went with the smaller version from eastern beaver tail with 4 circuits. Awesome plug and play setup and I wanted more space under the seat for other stuff. I can't imagine why I'd ever need 8 circuits for anything. If I need more than 4 it's easy to just double up on a circuit or 2. I just run a 12V cigarrette lighter plug, double usb charger, and a radar detector.

Despite being on the other side of the world and so in a time zone far far off mine, Jim is one of the best people to deal with that I have ever encountered on the internet. He has put up with a number of idiot questions from me, dealing with them gracefully and speedily, and his workmanship is superb. Highly recommended.

Connection question

I have a PC-8 that I am going to install this weekend, wondering about the accessories to be connected that already have fuses..
do I remove those? or double up on fuses? What did you guys do?

Thanks for this posting! I was completely unaware of this product. I am thinking of the three line version one live, two ignition. I might use one of the ignitions sources for grip heaters and the other for a GPS. . I already have the Honda 12v source for an iphone. I do not think I will do a seat heater. Maybe? Since I have a DCT I also want an easy jump cord. I still haven't calculated how big it has to be yet or how to do it.

Or maybe I should have them all ignition sources so I do not run my battery down accidentally. No bump starting a DCT.

Cut the fuse holder out of the harness and connect directly to the PC-8, then use the same size fuse in the PC-8. Most times it is the same type of fuse, so I just transfer them.

I also went with the 8 circuit over the 4 circuit one because the OCD side of me didn't like how messy the wires looked on the 4 circuit version.... haha

Just finished my install of the PC8. Nice build quality and perfectly cut to length.

No instructions, but they can be found on-line.

Here is my finished installation with 3 circuits used. GPS, Apollo heated grips and battery tender tail. The GPS and tender tail are unswitched. The grips switched. Going to add a loud horn and probably some LED driving lights soon.



Held in with adhesive velcro.

The seat works in both the low and high positions.

Glad I did this.
