with the 7" garmin and RAM cradle, you need to swap out tiny screws for larger ones, that will go directly thru the ram cradle into the garmin cradle.  For rugged use.

Pics show ram mount from below....last pic shows the Garmin power cable, I routed it over bars and down front of riser, I spliced the Garmin power cable into the BRP plugin( I used this same cable for past 2 seasons on last sled)  Be certain to use the garmin "bare wire cable" which has the step down built into the cable to go directly to +12v.

 

The GPS plugs into the BRP +12v accessorie plugin which runs off the main UPPER plugin below hood direct center, you gotta feel around for it with your hand.   It is NO longer coming off the DESS wire like my 14 etec was.  This is the typical BRP plugin and is switched power,perfect for a GPS so it goes on when sled is started, and goes off when sled is off, no worry of dead battery.  Most all GPS have built in lith-ion batteries so no need for direct to sled battery, as you have internal.

 

MORE IN DEPTH DETAILS ON 12v switched power and where to hook to:

LED SIGNATURE Handguard LIGHTS

 

Nice kit from BRP.   Couple things of note.  The kit comes with complete wiring and harness to wire to your sled, BRP has a harness to step down the power, and wants you to connect them to the power in front of glove box.  It is wired so they come on when sled starts, and turn off when sled is off. Similar to headlight.

 

Of course I had to complicate things and change them up.  

 

For me, I thought having the ability to turn these on/off when I wanted, and also be able to run them without sled running would be a bonus(light up trailside at night without motor running ect)   This is typical of LED lighting in the auto/bike world...Due to the fact LEDs take so little power to run. Have heard you can run these for upwards of 12 hours before running battery down!

When done you have both guards with new LED caps and wires dressed into the arms and covered.

Mount the new LED guards back onto sled....

 

TIP:

Mount left side first, tight up against brake all the way leftward, Now measure from the left guard to left riser clamp.  Now mount the right guard exactly the same distance away from the right riser clamp. There will be a space between the kill switch and right handguard when properly spaced.

 

 

Now dress the new LED wires into the wire loom on left and right sides. 

 

Pics show wires with plugins run thru loom and down.

12v plug & LED power switch:

 

I wanted a switch for the LED lights to run independant of the sled.  I also wanted a FULL TIME 12v plug on my dash(not glove box) for a few reasons, one being its nice to run a radar gun without having to start my sled.

 

Best place is left side, next to the ECO switch.  This is the underside of the gas tank shroud.  When removing the shroud, you need to unplug the DESS plugin, and ECO switch plugin.

 

I then mocked up the two items(LED switch and 12v plug) underneath, to make sure they were centered and not hitting shroud, before I drill holes.

Remove the plastic dash piece where ECO switch is, from the gas tank cowl.  Be sure to locate where you are drilling before removing from cowl.

 

Measure items to install....and then drill holes.

 

-3/4''

-1-1/8"
