added a few accessories....

to my 2018 ZR RR. Still waiting for delivery of a 36" windshield (I'll cut half of it off and give it to freelance), deluxe cover, rear wheel kit, Pro front bumper and skid plate.

I added four circuits for always hot power for GPS, electric face shield, usb port for charging helmet cam battery and a couple of courtesy lights.




usb port in front pocket of handlebar bag



GPS, cord for face shield and red buttoned switch for courtesy lights



the two small LED's light up area around sled pretty good...for those stops along the trail when you need a little light





GPS (LED's mounted on side of GPS mount), SPOT satellite tracker, handlebar bag





my world famous detachable ice scratchers stored in rear bag





removable ice scratchers about to be mounted





quick detachable...only run 'em when you need them...otherwise stored in rear bag







added a larger rear bag...the small factory bag was a joke

How does the GPS work in the cold? I have one like that but have never used it outside in the cold for extended periods of time.

I've got several riding partners that run the Montana too...we've never had any trouble with the units riding in temps of -25F (-32C) on rides lasting 8 - 12 hours. If you run them on internal batteries in cold temps battery life may be short. We all power them off the sled.

Thanks. I'll have to figured out how to direct wire it to my sled. I have a 2006 Crossfire 700. It's pull start only and doesn't have a battery to get 12 volts from.

Here's how I mounted a GPS on my 2006 Crossfire 700...back in the day I was using a Garmin 276 powered through a Marinco plug/receptacle running an ac/dc converter off the sleds accessory plug. The secondary wire you see coming off the mount was for a flat heater element sandwiched between GPS and mount to keep the screen from fading out in the cold...which was a problem with the older Garmin units.

on subsequent sleds I moved GPS mounting to the handlebars for a better view...

Hey RWS -- I like those LED lights, it is great when you are on the trail and need some light ... without having the sled running
