Re: for those with cameras

how did you connect the camera's power supply to battery of the bike? is there a kit or did you manufacture something?

National Semiconductor (and others) make nice 1A silcon voltage regulators. The design of a regulator ciruit is very simply. That is what I user and at least one other person I know uses to power all the video equipment off of the battery.

Even if you have a 12v video device I would advise that you insall a 12V regulator. Better safe than sorry (ended up with a voltage spice that fries the equipment).

They cost about $1.00 -> $1.50 each depending on where you order them from. This is where I get mine:

12V regulator

I turn on the camera and the monitor with a switch. I installed a lighted rocker switch (not the whole switch, but one with a small blue led) and wired the negative to the lighted side.

This way if the monitor is off, for security reasons, I can tell if the camera is getting power. This allows me be sure its not on for no reason!

I should have a 'How To' on my site in the next day or so. It will have all teh parts and prices so anyone can do it.

ADMIN: feel free to copy any of it you like to FB's as you see fit.

Re: for those with cameras

There is a product they sell in Canada, but I can't seem to find one here in TN. It can connect to your battery, and has a 12 V cig adapter. It is really cool...I use it for my phone charger or camera.

I went to Walmart, AutoZone and Advanced, but they had one with aligator clips and the end of the adapter is open. The one in Canada has those ring things for the battery, and the end of the adapter has a spring loaded cover to keep it clean when not used. Very cool.

Odd. In our local WM they have 12V all-weather plugs, with unterminated wires, weather proofing, and a spring-loaded covers.
