applause Wow, that should keep you busy. From what I've read, the mirror extenders are a definite and easy upgrade. I look forward to your completion reports. applause

Those are great projects!  I am glad to see that one of them is the power distribution panel.  I have my Centech AP-2 for many years.  When I installed my accessories to the bike, I ran all my grounds (⏚) back to the panel to make (future) troubleshooting easier.  Many choose to ground the Assy at various places along the frame path.  These will corrode or loosen and loose contact over time.  The power panel eliminates that problem.

I mounted mine on the access door in the "trunk"

Here is a C/U showing the panel and the relay (every wire is labeled on each end)

Yep I believe that any accessories that I add should be on it's own break out panel this way grounds are at the same spot and potential and ignition/battery relay power will be serviceable without having to tear into the plastic ware.

I hate hunting for power and grounds...Thanx for watching

vader1701, first let me thank you for the videos you're posting for us.
I've put the same led auxiliary lights you plan on putting on the front and I like them alot. I just tapped into the hot wire from the headlights because they draw so little power they just come on with the headlights.(no switch) I made my lightbar based on the one DennisB was selling because we haven't been able to get a hold of him.(I hope he's alright) I had 55 watt(110 total)lights on the one I'm selling and I had a relay and a switch on them. I didn't use them often because of the power draw. I bought the leds like yours off someone on the Burgman forum and a friend wants to buy some. I don't know where they came from. Would you please tell me where you got them from?
I plan on putting a led volt meter like you have too. It looks like about the best out there.
I have Burgman 400 mirrors on one of my Silverwings and they are long enough without the mirror extenders but I use them on the others I have. I think the mirror extenders are one of the easiest and best mods to do.
For the backrest I did the leroy Beal backrest mod. I know you already have your backrest mod kit but I'm posting the link just incase someone reading this post wants to make their own.
Even though you have your backrest mod kit you may enjoy reading through some of leroys stuff.

Thank you for the comments, this is one thing I love to do and since I am a Silverwing newbie I have some great plans for my new wing that's for sure just like I did with my Majesty except you can buy more for the wing and mods are fun to me...

It's a learning process on the ins and outs of the wing's electrical etc...Here is the link for the LED spot light, it's around $18.00 each which is still cheap in my opinion these things cost a lot of money.

Hope this helps...and thank you for the link...if this back rest doesn't work I am always open for more idea's I don't give up easily...I had my first taste of motorcycle seat upholstery work intimidating to say the least but hey I did it and the YT posting was a hit..I learned with the Majesty if you want it you must make it.
