Mods: 12volt, Ram GPS Mount, Windshield
Just wanted to share a few mods I did on my CTX 700. Just did a Phoenix to Orange County to San Diego and back (first ride with the bike) and made a few mods before I left. I was having a hard time figuring some things out and found this forum AFTER my ride.
12 Volt Outlet - Only thing I could find on it was the very expensive and very hard directions for the OEM outlet on the Honda website. Instead (see photo) purchase a very inexpensive but well made outlet that mounted right on the handle bars from Cycle Gear, $12 or so. Problem, had no fuse, so added one from an old battery tender wire I had. Then, paid a motorcycle repair buddy of mine to run the wire from battery up to handle bar. He pretty much had to remove 80% of the tupperware on the bike for a clean run of the wire. Really no easy way to do it.
Ram Mount - Purchased on line a mount that fits into side (not top) of brake fluid res. or Clutch handle. Only about $15 online and Ram Ball mount goes right on it. Right next to 12 Volt outlet, perfect for seeing GPS and getting power.
Windshield - Gotta say the CTX is not an easy bike to get a tall windshield for. But installed the OEM Honda Tall and the Wunderlich Extension Adjustable Screen (see photo) and works perfect and I think looks great. Totally fixed the buffeting I was getting on helmet.
Anyway, I'm not a handy guy but these little things really made the long ride a lot more fun.
