    K1600GTL CB, Fuse Block/PDM60

    Thinking about adding a CB (probably J&M) any hang ups or problems during the installation? Also with very little room under the seat (compared to the 2011RT) where did you place the fuse block/PDM60.

    I installed the Fuse Block under the right side panel next to the seat. I used Velcro to hold it in place. When the panel is reinstalled, you don't know it is there.

    It looks tight, but the PDM60 fits fine just behing the battery. I have a ground block, flasher module, and Isolator module installed there too....

    The only cautions when adding a J&M CB are, 1; hook-up the power to a permanently hot and then the trip wire to a separate circuit. Do NOT hook up both wires to a PDM60 just the trip wire. 2; use a different antenna, I have a 3ft K40 that works great. The J&M antenna mount fro the K1600 works well. Also double check all your antenna grounds.

    Remember the PDM60 is completely waterproof, so where you see fit is the place.

    I mounted the PDM60 on the right side. You can see it in the upper-left of this picture. The lights are visible in the white rectangle.

    I love the PDM60.

    I did it on my bike with the PDM60 (love it!), and the J&M... There are lots and lots of pictures about how I did it on my blog Selil.com

    To bad you aren't in the area. I'm getting ready to pull the system I installed on my R1200GSA off that bike and it is nearly the same. Just the brackets are different and a couple of the integrator modules ($300 or so bucks). That bike was what I rode in the 2013 Iron Butt Rally.

    I sold the 2012 K1600 GTL to a nice guy in Indianapolis. Now ride a 2015 Exclusive and I'm going more minimalist on this bike.

    I put my PDM60 under the seat in place of the anemic tool kit that comes with the bike.
