Well, don't run it through the fairings. I don't. I run mine under the tank with a fused cable directly to the battery. I use SP connect on all my bikes. They have a wireless charger available if you use their phone case. Just a quarter turn and the phone is on the mount or off. It is a little spendy, but the convenience is worth it to me.57x, Rc, Rock, etc..
I know i could post this in other forums, but I wanted to ask the guys on this forum especially because my bike is not an N1k and respect the opinions of the guys on this thread. Anyways I am looking for a good phone mount system possibly with power. 57x I heard it was difficult to run wires from battery to bars because of the way the fairings are mounted. Is this true?
I should have asked more specific questions related to the 14. Like which mount; mirror, stem, bar for best placement like not blocking gauges, or bar interference etc...Well, don't run it through the fairings. I don't.

I agree the Thompson would be more fun. But the cell phone would be cool cause I could use my bluetooth ear buds to listen to music, phone calls, GPS.
Yes not much room. That's why I asked. I should check the zx forum, but its not very active over there.The 14 dash is very cramped and I don't think a bst mount would work. Stem may be the only possibility and it will block gauge. It's been too long since I had my 14 to remember what I did.
RC I got it figured out. I put my battery on low charge for 24 hrs. Tested with meter after @ 13.2v. Did some reading on adjusting fuel by increasing idle level and shutting off completely the cold start. The bike started right away. Now the battery is just sitting in the bike but unhooked. Based on everything I read it should be fine without charge till April. I will check it with my new multi meter a couple of time s over the winter but feel I have a good handle on this. Thanks for your help.Mark, I played with my shorai, this weekend. It's in the cold garage. Figure 35-40 degrees. I've had it connected to its shorai charger, so it's ready to go, but its cold.
When it's cold, I still have to warm up the battery before it turns over the bike. My led voltage monitor always reads anywhere from 12.8 to 12.9, but the cold battery wont turn the bike over until the third try.
I'm not complaining as I know this is how this battery works, but I expected to see lower voltage , when cold, and really didnt find that.
At this point I am not sure. It might have just been a fueling problem. I am not sure if I gave the battery enough time off between start attempts. But the next cold spell we get I will test the battery.If it ever gets cold, will you put your meter on it? I'd like to figure mine out. It should really drop if I see 10 or 15 degrees? Right?
I'm wondering if the charge really charges it, or does it wake it up?
