That was a very complicated description...
Drill a hole in the handlebar between the mounts on the steeringhead. Put a rubber cable/wire protetion in the hole to protect the cables/wires.
Roll the electrical heat-films inside the handlebars - see the pics on how to do it on the RT mirrors. Ýou will have to "splice" the cables/wires since they are a bit short - solder the connections, cover with plastic shink-tube to ensure best isolation.
I use 15w on the left handlebar and 20W on the right - recommended by MC-Proffsen Ltd in Hägersten, Stockholm. Works best so - the isolation on by the gas-roll requires higher temp. It does take a little bit longer to get the handles warm compared to if one dabbles with the wires on the outside of the grips.
No wires on the outside of the handle-bar (RThandle-bar, maybe not applicable on the GS?...) - ensures a minimum of problems -
Put a switch where handy for you, prefereable a on-off-on 2-pole switch.
See enclosed diagram for connection.
Something like this is what I use:
Artikelnummer: 189257 20W
Artikelnummer: 189230 15W
Artikelnummer: 701028 on-off-on (screw attachment - what I use)
Artikelnummer: 701024 on-off-on (flat press-on attachment)
Artikelnummer: 700440 sealing cap - however there are several different caps to choose from and which is which is something I have not figured out yet.
