Hello Everyone,

I plan to run some electronics on my motorcycle, to keep multiple go pro cameras running, GPS running and Aux Lights and keep charging a Goal Zero sherpa 100 powered. This is for long expeditions .... what should be my ideal choice here for power management? Is PDM60 the best in market OR is there anything else that can be used to make all of the above work?

Getting Greedy on Power>:)!

I have fitted the PDM60 and it does its job and is easy to configure, but would have had one of these.. http://www.arborealsystems.com/Arboreal_Systems/Neutrino_intro.html
but at £300 in the Uk its simply to much..

It fits under either the rider or pillon seats quite well. You will have to extend the main positive cable and the big ground cable that go to the battery. Good luck. It's a very straightforward install. You can tap into the red/yellow wire under the left side of the pillon seat for ignition trigger.

I’ve been looking at the PDM60 and the Eastern Beaver PC-8. The PDM60 seems to be a better solution, in that there are no physical fuses to change, you just have to switch ignition off then back on to reset. However, looking at the pictures of it, there just seems to be a bundle of wires coming out of it, so I guess there’s a lot more work wiring up your accessories. Do you have put your own connectors on each wire, and how does the ground wire work?

Is there anyway you can take a picture of the wire you tapped?

The rear OP connector is used for the OEM alarm system. I would not connect anything that draws more than say 1A-2A.
I use it to trigger a relay.
