The Heat-troller worked just fine on a recent trip thru Colorado's high country. I could not find a perfect mounting place on my Triumph Tiger 800 xc. without part of the circuit board sticking out thru the plastic cowling near the left fork. I don't think you can make it any smaller, so it is what it is.
i am sorry. all those adapters are made on portland and we can make a longer one for you. just order and put it in comments.

I bought the mounted Heat-troller and it worked well. I like having it built in for quick and easy access. It worked well, but I think the instructions could be a lot better and using pictures would help. The template for drilling the two holes was pretty much useless and not really necessary since the small indicator light is on a flexible wire which can be moved a little. The hole size they called for to mount the knob was too tight and it took a long time to wallow it out enough so it would fit. They also left the circuit board exposed and recommended that you coat it with some sort of protective grease or tape. I wrapped it in electrical tape, but think they should have made it with better protection in the first place. It is nice and small and I had no trouble locating a place on my bike to install it. Once it was installed it worked great. They could just make the installation go a lot better with a little more thought and a design tweak.
the issue with the coating on the board is something we have gone back and forth with from the first mounted heat-troller we made. The original switch board had a way to shorten the wire length and a break away section for the LED. this was so you could easily mount them in two different places. But as we sold more we had more of these board not surviving shipping and display. We then went to another board design that would allow the customer to shorten the wire length. But about everyone seems to not want to do that so we have looked at ideas for sealing the board. But, if we do what you suggest it causes issues with people that have very little room to put the board into a tight space. So we still discuss this about every other month and still have no idea what to do except recommending dielectric grease. As for your other comments, iI do not disagree. we need to have pictures and drawings and better instructions. We are looking for people to do those things because it all seems to fall on me and frankly i want to invent better products. Open to ideas.

This is the second mounted Heat-troller I've purchased. The first went onto an 1150gs many years ago and still functions. A new bike required another. The biggest improvement is the size of the pc board connected to the off/on switch. The new component is tiny, allowing it to be fitted in many more locations. The control is sensitive and the response quick. You can get just the right amount of heat for your particular riding condition.
After determining where to locate the power unit, I found the wiring lengths to be more than adequate for the switch, power connections and the power out plug. Installation on my BMW R1200RT took less than an hour not including the tupperware off/on time.
